Dear Western Avenue Families,
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! On behalf of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) we would like to THANK all the Western Avenue parents, faculty, and staff who give so generously of their time and talents throughout the year to make Western Avenue the fabulous, fun, and fantastic school that it is!
What does the PTO do, anyway?
The PTO is a group of committed parent volunteers that sponsor a variety of school committees some are designed to raise money (for such things as enrichment programs, classroom needs, and field trips), and others are designed to enhance your child’s learning experience. Both are essential in making Western Avenue School (WAS) a very special place for our children to learn and grow! Without support from parents like you, we would not be able to offer these wonderful opportunities to our children.
Online Volunteer Registration!
We are always in need of Committee Volunteers and no amount of time is too small to help make a big difference! Our goal this year is for each WAS family to volunteer at least 4 hours of their time each school year or provide a suggested donation of $40 to the PTO. You may register to volunteer for the committee/s of your choice using our easy online system, SignUpGenius.com.
Visit the Committees page for the link and additional information.
Bi-monthly Tuesday evening PTO Meetings
We hold bi-monthly public meetings. They are in the WAS LMC at 7 pm on the second Tuesday of September, November, January, March and May. The agenda will be published in the Western Weekly before the meeting and the minutes will be made available on this page the week after the meeting. These meetings are a great way to learn what we are up to and have your thoughts and ideas heard. Parent participation is encouraged!
Please feel free to contact any member of the PTO Executive Board if you have any questions about WAS, the PTO, or any of our committees. We look forward to a rewarding and successful school year. Please join us and have some fun!
