Welcome to the Westside PTO! We have many fun activities planned throughout the year to make the school year fun! We also do two major fundraisers and some mini-fundraisers to help our school pay for much needed items such as books, art supplies, apps, classroom incentives and even numerous Chromebooks for Mobile Classroom Labs. Last year alone we were able to put $14,000 back into Westside!!
The best ways to make sure you are informed of what’s happening with the PTO throughout the school year are to:
Everyone is invited to our PTO Meetings!! Please come and offer your ideas, opinions, or help! They are held in the Westside Library at 11:30 on dates to be announced.
