Playground Workday on Friday!

Westview PTO needs your help! Last year we upgraded the K-2 playground, and are now it is the 3rd - 5th playground's turn!
The company overseeing the renovations will be working all day this Friday, October 6th, but we still need volunteers to help spread mulch. This a large job, and assisting will help cut some of the cost.
Timeslots are in two hours, but if you can only come for part of that, or there are no slots left in your desired time, just come on, we'll take all the help we can get!
Fall Fundraiser Kicks off Today

Throughout the school year we have many events to support our students, teachers, and families (AR party, Literacy Week, Teacher Appreciation, etc.). In order to ensure the success of these very important events, the PTO is holding a Fall Fundraising Campaign starting today, Oct. 2 until October 31!  Each family is requested to donate $25.00 or more to support Westview's programming. Cash or checks can be sent in with your student, and checks should be made to the Westview PTO.
Participation Bonuses:

The first 200 families to contribute $25.00 or more will receive a free car wash from the new Choo Choo Express Car Wash on East Brainerd Road. 


In addition, any family that donates $50 or more will be entered into a drawing to win one front row parking spot in front of the school this year. 


Lastly, each grade level room that has all families donate will receive a pizza party. 

Let the Fall Fundraising Begin! We can't wait to see what we can do together!
