Wardlaw-Hartridge Parents' Association

The WHPA enhances the academic, cultural and social experiences of our children and supports the school. Through fundraising we have supported a variety of assemblies and social events for students in all three divisions. We have also made significant contributions to capital campaigns as well as our very popular Mini Grant Program.

Each Year through fundraising events and contributions from our families and community, we are able to provide more than  $100,000 for the following: 

  • $60,000+ towards capital campaigns – currently Performing Arts Enhancements 
  • $13,000 yearly towards Faculty Development
  • $10,000 in mini-grants to our teachers to enhance the classroom experience
  • $5,000 in mini-grants to student clubs/teams to supplement their fundraising efforts
  • $4,000 for various assemblies for all grade levels
  • $4,000 for International Family Fun Night (our famous multi-cultural family event)
  • $4,000 for the Indie Film Festival
  • $22,000 for Graduations, Senior Portraits and Signs, concert receptions, Faculty appreciation, prom & class trip transportation and so much more!

Only with your help can we continue to provide for all these important items.

The Wardlaw-Hartridge Parents' Association's Spring Gala, "Denim and Diamonds," will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. at The Ellora in Edison, NJ. This fun "get together" will feature dinner, dancing, a Super 50/50 raffle, silent and live auctions filled with amazing items and experiences and, of course, time to relax and mingle! Proceeds from this event are directed towards the completion of the W-H Performing Arts Center. You are welcome to invite your family and friends. In order to make this event a success, we need everyone's help. Attendance is the most important way you can help, but there are many other ways as well.
Lower School students had a blast at the annual Valentine's Dance Party in Laidlaw Gym. Students in PreK-Grade 5 were dressed in festive colors as they danced and celebrated with their friends. The older Lower School grades also participated in some very exciting hula hoop competitions. Thanks to the Parents' Association for sponsoring the event and providing the refreshments and tasty treats.
International Family Fun Night, the annual celebration of the many cultures of The Wardlaw-Hartridge School, provided a wonderful evening of great food, entertainment and fun for the whole family. Guests enjoyed an international buffet while watching dances from different parts of the world. Many adults and some students also donned international attire (pictured above) to enhance the spirit of the event.
