Care Package for Mr. Baker
Our head custodian, Mr. Baker, is recovering from surgery. The evening custodial crew has asked us for donations for a care package for him. He likes Western movies and well wishes from students. Send in items to the PTA box.

To keep you in the loop regardless of whether you are free on Tuesday evenings, we share the notes from the monthly business meetings. Check out our blog for the May meeting details.
5th Grade Class Gift
Thanks to the 5th Grade Committee and graduating class for the gorgeous watercolor of our current building! Thanks to Archival Arts Inc. for the matting and framing. The painting will be hung in the new school.
Screen Free Day
Save a piece of Westowne's history for your home garden.
On Wednesday, May 25th, the Green Club will host a grounds cleaning from 4:00 until 5:00 PM. Bring gloves and any gardening tools you have. Students who are not current Green Club members will only be allowed to stay if a parent/guardian is with them. Designated bulbs and perennials that cannot be used in the new building's landscaping will be available for a donation to the PTA.
Additionally, a Peace A Pizza Discount Night will be held from 4:00 to 8:00 that evening. A coupon for 20% off your eat-in or carry-out order will be sent home that day.
On Thursday, May 26th, wear green and bring a reusable water bottle to school. Take care of yourself and the earth by participating in Westowne's single use water bottle ban.
Pillowcases for Patients
Through last year's “Pillowcases for Patients” initiative, Westowne donated over 200 pillowcases for pediatric patients at The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. During the month of May, we will again collect new, colorful, child-friendly pillowcases, as well as child-friendly band aids for the Kids Helping Hopkins program.
Please drop new pillowcases or bandages in the box in the lobby labeled "Kids Helping Hopkins." Please contact Mrs. Ritzes with questions.
