Western Avenue PTO

Hello from the Western Avenue PTO!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We are very excited to start off our year with a full schedule of PTO events on the Calendar.  With Covid, it has been a challenging couple of years for the PTO.   We thank you for your support and for sticking with us.  For anyone new to Western or new to a full schedule of PTO events, welcome! The PTO would also like to thank the WAS families and staff that generously give their time to make our school great.  We invite all of you to take a look at what the PTO has to offer and get involved if you can!  

The PTO is a group of committed parent volunteers that sponsor a variety of school committees, some designed to raise money (for such things as enrichment programs, classroom needs, and field trips) and others designed to enhance your child’s learning experience. Both are essential in making Western Avenue School a very special place for our children to learn and grow.

The PTO makes money from fundraising. Our top two fundraisers take place in the Fall and Spring, so there are plenty of opportunities throughout the year.  The Clothing Sale which runs in the fall, and Duck Duck golf, which runs in the spring, bring in a majority of our budget for the year.  We also accept donations via the WAS Webstore donation link. Please see the “committees” tab on the left to learn about the different options for participation within the school. If you would like to join one of our many committees, please use our Signup Genius Link,  any time after 10:00 A.M. August 26th.

The PTO meets bi-monthly on Tuesdays at 7pm.  All meetings will be held in the LMC(Library). A WAS Connects reminder will be sent out the day of the meeting.  The agenda is published in the Western Weekly the week before and the minutes will be posted to this page after the meeting. Meetings are the best way to learn what’s new and have your voice heard. Parents are encouraged to join!

Please contact the PTO if you would like more information about anything at all!

2022-2023 meeting dates: 9/13, 11/15, 1/17, 3/14, 5/9
