Building Construction Continues
Westowne's new building construction continues as the old building is gradually demolished. Check out this aerial footage from the end of the school year. The photo below is more recent, after demolition of the older building had begun.
Westowne PTA maintains a calendar for you to reference whenever you need a date for an upcoming event. For example, want the details on Westowne's Sneak a Peek and Back to School Nights? See our calendar.
Westowne PTA invites local businesses to become sponsors for the 2016/17 school year. Sponsorship is a form of advertising with an educational and community benefit.
Your company will appear as a sponsor for the school year on our website, on Facebook and Twitter, and in our email/online newsletter. New this year is the opportunity to become an exclusive event sponsor. Event sponsors can choose to financially support a specific event, with added business promotion opportunities. As always, all contributions are tax deductible. Please email us for details.
Westowne PTA is now on Twitter. Follow us for updates about our PTA, school reminders, and local community news and events.

Box Tops Summer Collection
Westowne PTA raised $1647.10 last school year, 10 cents at at time, thanks to you clipping and turning in Box Tops for Education labels.
Let's have some fun while raising funds. Each completed summer collection sheet (available below) turned in by Friday, September 9th, will give your student a chance to win a prize. Additionally, the class that collects the most throughout the school year will win an end of year party. Keep on clipping!
