Your WestWood PTC Update
Here's what's been happening at WestWood...
The Ice Cream Social was a successful night! Thank you to everyone who attended to make it a fun night of socializing with other WestWood families, playing on the playground, enjoying delicious treats, and winning great prizes. Thank you to Gina Gertner for organizing and everyone who helped at the event.
Our annual Read-a-thon Fundraiser kicked off on October 6th. Please make sure that you have this information (the big envelope!) from your child and know that this is our biggest fundraiser of the year! The first step is to register at www.thegetmovincrew.com. Then spread the word to family and friends and watch your child's pledge meter online AND check out the Amazing Race race track at school to view each grade's progress. We appreciate your support!
A Milk Moola volunteer has stepped forward! Thank you Jenni Reimers! (Please remember to save your milk caps and box tops!)
Family Movie Series tickets sales are complete - thanks to Kelly Malecha for organizing and everyone who purchased tickets. Enjoy the shows! ~Secret Life of Pets ~ Sing ~ Smurfs ~ Captain Underpants ~ Dairy of a Wimpy Kid: Long Haul ~ Despicable Me3
Spirit Week brought about some extra school spirit with pajamas, crazy hair, and more!
Superintendent Dr. Teri Staloch presented to all Prior Lake-Savage elementary PTCs at a joint meeting; it was great to have such community energy together.
Kindness in Chalk was a fun surprise for students on Monday morning! Thanks to Amy Crespo for organizing the smile makers.
The WestWood Student Directory will be available soon. Thanks for all who submitted contact info - friendships are a good thing! Note: The document will be secured through Schoology logins.

We are now looking for an Overall Coordinator and a Games Coordinator. Let us know if you are interested!
