Donate to Invest in Your Child 

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

Donate to Invest in Your 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.

Westwood PTO Happenings

Posted in Uncategorized

Parents and families are SO important to a school’s success, and Westwood PTO is a key way parents can help support our school. Westwood is fortunate to have a great body of families and teachers who support our school. So far this year, we have purchased new coolers for field trips, 2 new BIKES for prizes, NEW spirit wear, supported staff appreciation events, and are getting ready to finalize the final phase to the security upgrades. BLINDS for the cafeteria! THANK YOU for making this happen.

Additionally, we are looking forward to supporting the PBIS system in a new way this year with student experiences at Westwood. Teachers will have the opportunity to request new equipment and/or materials for their classroom through our new grant system. Finally, we will continue our community building events such as Trunk-or-Treat, Santa Breakfast, Glow Dance, and Movie Night. It’s going to be a great year at Westwood!

We have three main fundraising opportunities this year. These include our “Invest In Your Child” campaign as well as our traditional City Saver book sale. These are underway and Westwood greatly appreciates your support thus far. We are also seeking Corporate Donations (Tiger Partners & Paws Partners) this year as well.

We will invest these funds back into Westwood to further enhance the learning experiences and opportunities at Westwood. Additionally, we need volunteers. Please consider giving 2 or more hours of your time to the PTO this year! Be on the lookout for links to our Sign Up Geniuses for more opportunities to help with our community events and other happenings at Westwood. We currently have a Sign Up Genius available for City Savers for the next two weeks. Thank you for all of your support!
