Pajama Spirit Day
Our monthly Pajama Spirit Day is tomorrow, March 3rd. This month you can show your Westowne pride by getting read for March Madness. Wear clothing or colors from your favorite sports team instead of or with your PJs!
Your PTA organizes Pajama Day. We encourage those who can to make a donation to fund fun and educational events like Literature Night and Field Day. The donation is very appreciated but entirely optional. If desired, please send cash or check made out to Westowne PTA in your student’s folder on Friday, March 3rd.
The class with the most donations will get a class party at the end of the school year! The current class leaders are:
- Ms. Jones $176
- Ms. Rotolo $175
- Ms. Durm $93.50
Please see the book fair Volunteer Spot to sign up to help.
Thank you to Riggs Distler for becoming a Platinum Level Event Sponsor for Book Fair this year! Also thanks to Westowne parent, Megan Shawker, for connecting our PTA with Riggs Distler.
