November 2020 PTO Updates
Scholastic Book Fair
The Scholastic Book Fair is COMING SOON!
This year we’re offering both IN-SCHOOL and ONLINE ordering options. Children can attend the in-school Book Fair during the week of November 2nd-6th. Or anyone can order online from October 25th-November 7th through our Scholastic Homepage.
Save the dates and look for more details to come soon!
Book Fair VOLUNTEERS needed!
We need volunteers to assist students with book purchases and operating the cash registers throughout the week. (A brief five-minute training session at the start of your shift will have you operating the registers like a champ.) Days have been divided into morning and afternoon shifts, but if an effort to reduce the number of different individuals in the building, we’d be super grateful to anyone who can commit to volunteering an entire day. Please take a moment to view our sign-up sheet to see what dates and time slots you can help.
Setup a Book Fair eWallet in advance!
Give your child a safe, cashless way to shop the in-school Book Fair, with contactless checkout. It’s easy to create a free account and funds are available immediately. Plus, family and friends can now contribute, too! Visit https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/…/parent-how-it-works… to learn more about the eWallet option and set yours up today!
A huge THANK YOU to Erin Stevenson for volunteering to chair the Book Fair this year and to past chair Angela Farmer for her guidance. This year’s Book Fair wouldn’t be possible without their efforts!
Hopefully everyone (kids, parents, and staff) survived the first week of remote learning with few tears shed and all hairs intact. Your PTO Board met this week to discuss planning and budgeting for this school year. And while 2020 has certainly presented its challenges, one thing we’ve learned is to remain adaptable and hopeful. So while things may look different for us, we’re striving to still provide support and encouragement to our Westwood Family as best we can.
Be on the lookout at the end of next week (8/28 or so) for the PTO membership form within Mrs. Nanney’s weekly family newsletter. This form will allow you free membership to our PTO and provide a source of contact info for each family (if you wish).
Monthly PTO member meetings will occur virtually on the second Thursday of each month, beginning September 10th at 4pm. Events will be created on our Facebook page and reminders will be sent out via email/newsletter. A Zoom link will be provided in the week leading up to each meeting.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact any of your PTO Board members:
