--- Help Wanted ---

Rotating Restaurant Coordinator for WestWood Nights

The PTC is considering offering a monthly restaurant night. Coordinator is needed to help plan the details! Potential tasks would include deciding which restaurant and scheduling the night each month, as well as advertising to our families (flyers, FaceBook, PTC newsletter, Schoology). Local restaurants such as Buffalo Wild Wings, Noodles, Freddy's, and Charlie's are waiting to partner with us and offer some WestWood community building while they give back to our school. Please contact us at if you are interested in helping!
