PTA Corner

As your new PTO Co-Presidents, we would like to welcome you to the start of a great year at West Rocks.

We’ve had a busy start to the year with a great Food Truck Social (Thanks to Julie Christinat!), two open houses (one in the midst of what felt like the middle of summer!), our fall “mum” sale and our first School Dance.  The PTO is excited about working together to make this a great year for the students, faculty and administration. In order to do so, we need your help with our biggest fundraiser of the year….our auction, which will be held in April.  We need help with decorating, ordering food (come on, we’re ALL good at that!!), soliciting donations, putting out publicity about the event, helping to work at the checkout tables at the end of the night, setting or cleaning up, tracking donations, creating a program….the possibilities are endless!  As it stands, we do not have nearly enough volunteers to help get this important event off the ground and, without it, we will not be able to continue to provide our students, faculty and facility with the resources needed for our kids to be successful. Please let us know if you’re able to help in any capacity.

We have a number of exciting events coming up this fall that are fun for the kids and for families (and they’re great volunteer opportunities as well!).  The Emoji Fall Fundraiser, Bingo Night and Photo Day, to name a few, and our next PTO meeting is on November 8th at 7:00 p.m.  Please come and join us!

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, ideas or suggestions.
