Activities and Fundraising

To help support activities and equipment that are not normally included in school budgets, we do some fundraising throughout the year. This year, our money will go toward art education and classroom supplies as well as other items to help support our school family.

Our fundraising activities for the year include:
  • A kickoff Mabel’s Labels campaign in September (Mabel's Labels Campaign)
  • A Regal Christmas Catalogue campaign in October and November
  • A Family Fair celebrating Westy’s birthday on November 15, 2013 including a silent auction and lots of fun kids activities.

Thank you all for your support last year, the new musical instruments are wonderful, the library renovation looks great, the new online ordering system is a time saver and very convenient, and the new technology including RaspberryPi and Lego WeDo Robotics is starting to arrive.

As a parent at Westwood you are automatically a member of the Home and School Association. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions or ideas. We would really appreciate any help or input you have to offer. Thank you!
