Dear Westwood Families,

In collaboration with our PureEdge partners in social emotional learning and PUSD’s Mindful Moment, we are sharing some of our favorite Brain Breaks with you to ease the stress of the season. Please feel free to use these Brain Breaks as you choose with your child and as a family. Mental health and wellness is a top priority in Poway Unified School District and we hope that you are safe and well.

In Partnership,

Jennie Mikels

Pajama Day is coming up on Friday, December 18th! This is our first spirit day of the 2020-2021 school year, brought to you by the Student Council. Wear your favorite pjs to show off to everyone and have a cozy last day before winter break. Just a reminder to the on-campus kids that they are still required to wear a mask and appropriate shoes. No slippers lease. . Have fun!

Westwood Elementary Foundation

The Foundation needs you to volunteer. We need several board positions to be filled to continue to operate.

We are currently looking for a Secretary, Director of Special Events, Director of the Dining for Dollars program, Director of Community and Donor outreach, Director of Social Media/ Electronic Outreach and more volunteers to help plan and coordinate special events, Dining for Dollars and many other activities.

We’ve operated for years with a very small group of volunteers who have done a lot of amazing things. Currently, though, we don’t even have enough Board Members to operate per our legal charter.

We need the above board positions and four additional volunteer positions to be filled before the end of December.

If you are interested in keeping the Foundation operating then email wwefpresident@gmail.com
