Your WestWood PTC Update

January 2018

We put the FUN in Family Fun Night!

Family Fun Night Planning is underway! Thank you to all of our coordinators planning a fun carnival night! Want to be a BINGO caller or Plinko attendant at the event? Want to donate a CAKE or dessert for the Cake Walk? Watch for the Sign Up Genius email -- and then sign up! We love the help!

Silent Auction donations are now being accepted! Each classroom has a suggested theme for your donations - or be creative! Go big or small - all size baskets are being made! (And speaking of baskets or fun containers, we will take those too please!) Thank you!

Rollerblades are arriving in soooooooon - PE classes are about to go wheels up! Thank you again for your fantastic support of the Readathon to help us make this goal a reality.


The PTC expects to cover over $10,000 of field trip expenses this year? Now that's a lot of admission tickets and buses to get there!

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 (once/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!
