One School, One Book

There’s a secret hiding in the West Woods … let’s solve the mystery together!  Our One School, One Book week is officially May 13-17, but families have already started reading The Secret in the West Woods by local author Mary C. Ryan.  Mrs. Ryan will be doing assemblies for the students next week, and on Thursday, May 16 at 7 p.m. she’ll do a reading from one of her books and be available to sign your family copy of The Secret in the West Woods.  Join us!

One theme of the book is how many exciting adventures can occur in nature and in our local parks.  We hope you’ll catch the spirit of exploration for our Local Park Trek.  From May 13-26 we’ll have signs posted in four local parks — two in Russell Township, two in Chesterland — that families can go for a walk and find.  The flyer with the punch card was sent home with your student and is also here in PDF format.  Punches earn participation prizes and the opportunity to win one of our gift baskets, which are stuffed with swag from Westwood and the Geauga Park District, nature-themed books and exploration tools, and more.

PTO leadership for 2019-20

We have a great slate of candidates on the ballot for next year’s PTO Executive Board:

President: Christina Schaffert

Vice President: Michelle DeNigris

Treasurer: Pam Obratil

Assistant Treasurer: Eileen Moidell

Secretary: Danielle Gideon

Public Relations Representative: Stephanie Wright

Since we have only one candidate per position, this seems like a done deal, right?  Well, not exactly!  We still have an election coming up and need your participation to make it legitimate.  The election meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14 at 7:15 p.m.  We hope you’ll help chart PTO’s future by being there as a voting member!
