Box Tops are a surprisingly important source of revenue for Westowne PTA. Pledge your support with your Box Tops labels during our Clipboard Collection Drive. Box Tops will generate a personalize collection sheet for you to print. Each collection sheet of 25 or more unexpired Box Tops will give your student a chance to win a gift card to sweetFrog. Just turn in completed sheets to school by Friday, September 9th. Additionally, the class that collects the most throughout the school year will win an end of year party. Keep on clipping!
Amazon Smile also provides an excellent opportunity to support your PTA while shopping. Spread the word to family and friends that they can support our PTA by shopping on smile.amazon.com and choosing Westowne Elementary. This program is now the best place to give with Amazon purchases. #startwithasmile

Student Art Display
Westowne student artwork is on display at Security Square Mall now through early September. It can be found in the hall that leads from the mall entrance between North American Trade Schools and Teppanyaki Grill, directly across the parking lot from the theater. Thirty-five projects are featured in the showcase. Thanks to Westowne art teacher, Ms. Cooper-Albert, for sharing our students' art.
Westowne values volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering at school or on field trips should complete the BCPS volunteer application and training.
