¡Juntos!

Collaborating to build a better future for all children at Wharton.

The Wharton Dual Language Academy PTO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to enabling the vision of our excellent school leadership, building strong community, and raising funds to enable life-transforming educational experiences. We invite you to invest in the future of all children at Wharton and contribute.

This easy fundraising effort asks parents and supporters to donate $25 per child ($50 per family) — without selling or purchasing anything. Monies raised through ¡Juntos! help fund class field trips, extracurricular activities, support teacher/staff appreciation efforts, defray costs associated with Wharton’s IB program and more. Please consider this as you commit to an amount that supports each of your children, and potentially goes generously beyond to support all of the children in our Wharton community.
