Your WestWood PTC Update
Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!
The PTC welcomes you to WestWood Elementary for a great year!
Back to School Night was a fun night for students to meet their teachers and see their classrooms. Thank you to the teachers and staff who prepped the school and organized us for learning! The PTC distributed pre-sold items to classrooms and sold planners and t-shirts in the cafeteria. Thank you to our volunteers who helped!
Student Benefit Dollars have been distributed to staff members to assist with the cost of new classroom supplies for our students. Hooray!
PTC Calendar of Activities has been sent home in a backpack near you - post it at home!
School Picture Day was Tuesday, September 19th. Thank you to our PTC volunteers who helped capture those great smiles!
Our annual Readathon Fundraiser will kick off on October 6th. Please watch for more information and know that this is our biggest fundraiser of the year! We appreciate your support and look forward to prizes, silly teacher stunts, and a fun reading event!
