Playground Play Dates

- This Saturday, August 19, 10:00 - 12:00

Tickets for this game will be purchased online instead of through order forms. If you'd like to sit with Westowne families, please choose tickets in section 368 and 370. Proceeds will benefit the PTA's 5th Grade Committee.
We hope to see you there!
School Supply Drive
Box Tops for Education are found on product packaging, like cereal and toilet paper. We collect these little labels all year long. Last year, we raised over $1300! Help us raise money for this school year, too.Attach your Box Tops to this collection sheet. Submit as many completed sheets as you can by Friday, September 15th, and your child will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate. Just include your child's name and your homeroom teacher's name on the sheet, and remember to use tape or glue to attach them (no staples!).
Dear Westowne Community,
This school year, your PTA board is excited to continue working with you to promote family involvement and educational enrichment for Westowne’s students. We will revisit our long-standing and beloved PTA events. These events include Fall Festival, educational and entertaining assemblies, Book Fair, Movie Nights, Holiday Shoppe, after-school clubs, and more. We also continue our commitment to both advocating for and meeting needs in our school community.
We invite all returning and new families to be involved in the PTA.
- Become a new member or renew your annual membership. Membership is the first step to participate in the PTA’s cause: supporting the school community, including the faculty, staff, families and most of all, students. A membership form may be printed from our website.
- Come to our monthly meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, October – May at 7:00 PM.
- Join us on Facebook. Follow our Westowne Elementary PTA page for information and join our Westowne Elementary Community Forum to be part of the conversation.
- Subscribe to our weekly newsletter, The Blast, by emailing us a request.
- Visit our website at http://www.westownepta.com/ for the latest news.
- Take part in our fundraising programs so we can continue to pay for family events, academic enrichment for our children, and more.
- Volunteer a little or a lot. All efforts are greatly appreciated!
- Attend our events and have a good time with your family and friends.
Your PTA board is comprised of parents who know supporting our school benefits our children and our community. We believe we make Westowne great together. This school year is the second year of our term. Please consider stepping up for a position for the next term. A strong PTA means a stronger school. We’ll share much more on this opportunity later this year!
Welcome back to school, Westowne!
Your PTA Board, 2016 - 2018
