Your WestWood PTC Update
March 2018 (In like a lion as we head out on Spring Break)
What's up at WestWood?
Family Fun Night was indeed a fun night! Thanks to all who joined us for games and community! We could not have done it without the great volunteers that showed up for their shifts selling tickets, running the games, selling pizza and snacks, and helping at our Silent Auction. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS! A big shout-out to the organizers Tony Hauschildt, Rachel Carlson, Brooke Lizarraga, Jessica Olstad, and Becky Smith for the hours spent planning the event - you rock!
Butter Braid orders are in process! Please make sure to turn them in before Spring Break. Thanks for your support! Top sellers will enjoy a lunch with Principal Zwolenski. And thanks to Kelly Malecha for organizing this delicious fundraiser.
Box Tops have earned WestWood over $1000! These funds go direct to the school and are much appreciated. Keep saving those box tops and turning them in to your classroom. (Sometimes coordinator Leah Goss has fun prizes involved too!)
Want to be more involved? We'd love that! We are beginning to plan for the 2018-19 school year (*gasp*) and are seeking individuals who wish to make a difference and join our board! Attend one of our few remaining monthly meetings (schedule below) or reach out to us for more information about the board positions or coordinator roles available for next year. Don't be shy!
ENJOY YOUR SPRING BREAK!
DID YOU KNOW???
Types of opportunities vary during the year - from helping at Picture Day or Vision Screening Day to bringing a dish for the conference dinner for the teachers. Sign up to know when we need you - we ALWAYS appreciate your help and generosity!
The tool is easy to use and even has an app to use from your mobile device. It sends reminders too!
