Students have off this Monday for a professional development day. Enjoy the long weekend, Westowne families!
High Five Orioles Game
Westowne's going to Camden Yards on Sunday, September 25th, at 1:35 for the last home game of the season. Tickets are $15 each and support the PTA's 5th Grade Committee. Sit in Westowne's section, see our school on the jumbotron, and kids can run the bases after the game!
Fill out the form below and return it with payment no later than tomorrow, Friday September 9th. You will receive a confirmation email, and tickets will be available for pickup at sweetFrog (852 N. Rolling Road) from 5:30-6:30 on Thursday, September 15th. While you're there, get some yummy treats to support Westowne PTA, too!
Parents are encouraged to check with their teachers periodically to find out what classroom supplies they may need. Feel free to share the need in the PTA's Facebook group so other parents can help, too.Here are some of the recent requests:
- Ms. Kim (Kindergarten) would like shoe boxes.
- Ms. Johnson (Media Specialist) needs cube-shaped tissue boxes to stock the library for runny noses.
- Ms. Ritzes (Pre-K) would like toilet paper and paper towel tubes.
- Ms. Martin (Health Suite Nurse) needs elastic waisted shorts and pants (used, clean condition is fine) and brand new, sealed in the original package underwear for boys or girls, sizes 4-12.
Box Tops for Education
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 in Catonsville. Just turn in completed sheets to school by tomorrow, Friday, September 9th. Additionally, the class that collects the most throughout the school year will win an end of year party.
Keep on clipping!
Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 29th from 3:00 - 6:00. It will be a family-friendly afternoon full of games, entertainment, a raffle, a silent auction, concessions benefiting the PTA's 5th Grade Committee, and more.

Bring the flyer you will receive in your children's folders or just mention Westowne at the register. Invite family and friends!
