Who: YOU! And family, friends, and businesses: Invest in your child, Westwood, and your community
Why: To support events, experiences, and upgrades happening at Westwood
How much: Our goal is $70/child (tax deductible) to help fund our budget of $35,000. For more information visit westwoodpto.com
Where does the money go?
• Security upgrades: currently installing blinds in the cafeteria
• PBIS experiences: rewarding our children for their hard work and behavior
• Teacher grants: supplying classrooms with updated materials to help our children thrive
• Classroom supplies
• Community events: ice cream social, boohoo/yahoo breakfast, trunk or treat, Santa breakfast, glow dance, movie night
• Teacher appreciation
Goal: $70 per child
This amount remains consistent with last year’s goal. We are aiming for 100% participation this year. We appreciate any amount that you are able to contribute. The Westwood PTO offers the Invest Campaign as an alternative to the traditional fundraisers that require you to sell a product and only a portion of the proceeds return to the school. We will continue our traditional fundraisers at this time, as our PTO is growing and evolving. Invest allows 100% of your donation to go directly back into the programs that support the school.
Many of our events, activities, rewards, and security upgrades are because of YOU investing in your child and school, but it takes ALL of our families to make it happen. If a financial donation is not feasible at this time, please consider helping us reach out to others in our community. If you know of a business partner please refer them to our corporate donation page at westwoodpto.com.
