As we spend the last few days of summer (hopefully relaxing) at home, it’s hard not to prepare for the upcoming school year.  We are looking forward to an exciting new adventure as we welcome our new Executive Board members: Michelle DeNigris (Vice President), Pam Obratil (Secretary), Jen George (Assistant Treasurer) and Christina Schaffert (PR Rep).  Romkje McKeigan (President) and Karen Wright (Treasurer) are returning.  We also welcome two teacher representatives, Dan Reich and Beth Phillips.

We would also like to welcome all the new students, families and staff to the Westwood family.  We hope that you will enjoy Westwood as much as the rest of us.

This year, we are reducing the fee for PTO membership to $0.  We feel very strongly that all families should be part of PTO just as all students benefit from PTO.  We want to hear your voice and this is one way to make that possible.   Please come to the first PTO member event on Monday, August 27th at 8:45 am.  We will have a Meet & Greet in the MPR with light snacks, coffee and tea.  This is a great opportunity to meet other families and find out more about PTO.

Coming up also is the school supply drop off on Monday, August 20th at 11 am.  Stop by the PTO table to say hello and pick up your PTO membership enrollment form and order your t-shirts.

New Family Orientation is Wednesday, August 15 at 6:30 pm and Kindergarten Orientation is Monday, August 20th at 5:30 pm.  PTO will be at both of these events with lots of information about the upcoming events as well as membership enrollment forms.

As usual, look for updates right here on our website as well as on our Facebook page.

See you soon!
