Teacher Appreciation Week
Westowne's teachers model good character for our children every day. Join us in showering our teachers and staff with gratitude the week of May 11th - 15th. Thanks to your financial support, we will be bringing in catered lunches twice that week. Thanks to the generous donation of Panera, breakfast will also be served one morning.
Please help us assure a fun, successful Teacher Appreciation Week:
- Donate gift cards for merchandise or services and new items that may be raffled off to teachers. We are collecting items now. Donations may be sent in your child's folder in an envelope marked with "PTA" or placed on the PTA mailbox in the school office.
- Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 12th and Thursday, May 14th, and put on your aprons! With your help, we will fill the teachers' lounge with homemade sweets those days.
- A template for letters and artwork is being sent home so students can create personalized thank-yous for their teachers and staff. Use the template or get more creative! These student projects should be sent into school by next Wednesday, May 6th, so we can feature them on teacher's doors and bulletin boards.
- There are volunteer opportunities for daily events starting Friday, May 8th through Friday, May 15th. Show your love and send us an email to sign up.
