Fall FESTIVAL

Fall Festival is Saturday, November 3rd , and we have several new booths planned for this year’s festival. One new booth is “ALL THINGS WILDCAT ” which will feature gently-used Westwood items for sale. 

As you begin cleaning out closets, please donate any t-shirts, jerseys, cheerleader uniforms or sweatshirts that your student has outgrown. Remember, anything WILDCAT or orange/white will be available for sale. Other suggestions for donations include stadium seats, car magnets, ribbons, pom poms or caps. You may send these items to school in bags labeled “PTO” now or until the festival. 

If you missed the Open House/PTO meeting, you can join by returning the completed form to your student’s teacher. We are still in need of volunteers to help plan the festival, teacher appreciation events and other PTO projects. Please email tucker.laurabeth@gmail.com

“Westwood PTO promotes and encourages a supportive relationship between parents, students and teachers, in order to support the quality educational programs at Westwood Schools.”
