We'd like to thank Westowne parent, Flavia Oleniewski, for photographing Westowne Drama Club's Beauty & the Beast, Jr. performances. She donated her time and expertise for the second year in a row! Please feel free to share and download the photos for your own personal use. If you share online, please tag Flavia's Photography.
Flavia would like to offer a $50 donation to Westowne PTA with every Westowne family photo-shoot booking. She is currently booking spring portraits for April and would love to meet some new families. Please see her website or Facebook page for more information.
Board of Education & Voter Registration
While there are many political activities a PTA may not do as a non-profit organization, there are many things we can do. Currently, your PTA board is working with other PTA’s in the SW area to coordinate a District 1 Board of Education Candidate Forum this spring. We will keep you updated once the date/time/location is firm.
We encourage you to vote on June 26th for the Primary Election and on November 6th for the General Election. If you are not currently registered to vote, you can register online. Voter registration forms will also be available at our March 27th PTA meeting.
Save the date for Friday, April 13th for a Pizza and Movie Night. See Coco (PG), a beautiful movie about family, Mexican culture, and music.
Many thanks to Becky Bass for running these free family events for us for several years now. We need a volunteer to take over for next year. This is a twice yearly evening event with a small amount of prep. Please let us know if you are interested.
