Please plan to join us for the next PTA meeting on Tuesday, January 9th at 7:00. Fifth grade parents, plan to attend so we can kick off the 5th Grade Committee projects.
Did you know that the PTA's 5th Grade Committee raises funds each year by selling concessions and game tickets--then funds t-shirts, memory books, and a Recognition Ceremony? We welcome all 5th grade parents to pitch in. Let's work together to make this last year at Westowne extra special.
We are offering Art History on Friday afternoons starting tomorrow, the 5th. We are also offering Lego Robotics on Thursday afternoons beginning January 11th.
Registration is now closed. Slots were awarded to a random selection of students. Students who were placed on the waiting list have had their funds returned. Please check your email to see if your child was enrolled in one of the clubs.
Thanks for your interest and support.
We'd like to thank the following businesses for supporting the Westowne community this school year:
Platinum Level Event Sponsor
- Focused Support, LLC
Gold Level PTA Sponsor
- The Catonsville Cooperative Market
Chipotle Restaurant Night
Box Tops for Education Drawing
Each completed collection sheet of unexpired Box Tops submitted by Friday, January 19th will be entered to win a Peace a Pizza gift card. The homeroom class that submits the most Box Tops will also win an end of year party. The top homeroom classes so far are:
- Ms. Jones
- Ms. Connolly
- Ms. McIntosh
Tuesday, January 30th 6:00 - 8:00 PM
This event is free for all Westowne families. It will be held at the school, in the gym--not at the Science Center.
Thanks to the many who pitched in to help us wrap up 2017 with Holiday Shoppe, Cookies & Cards, and a catered Holiday Luncheon for all the faculty and staff. Also thanks the Bass family for their generous donation. Direct donations allow the PTA to do less fundraising, while providing more for our school and community.
