Westlake Elementary PTA
My name is Sarah Camden, and on behalf of Westlake Elementary School (WES) PTA, I’m thrilled to welcome you to our inaugural year! Over the past two years, PTA members from across our community have been working together to design and build a strong PTA organization that will support our school and enrich our students’ experiences. Our 2019/2020 WES PTA board is excited for the year ahead!
This year, all four of Westlake’s former elementary schools join together under one new roof. In recognition of this change, and in an effort to unify our elementary community, WES PTA’s theme for the year is, “All 4 One.” Throughout the year, you’ll see activities and events designed to build unity and connections across our school community. Our Summertime Meet-up chairs kicked off these activities with grade-level meet-ups during summer break. Here’s a sample of activities you can expect to see when we return to school this fall:
- We’ll celebrate the students who completed the summer reading program.
- We’ll welcome back teachers and staff with a “back to school” luncheon.
- We’ll host the “All 4 One Fun Run” which will engage all students while raising funds for PTA-sponsored efforts.
- We’ll offer the first spirit wear sale.
- We’ll sponsor school parties including Halloween, Winter and Valentine’s Day.
- Adults are invited to an evening out at “Night at the Races” on Friday, November 22 at 6pm at St. Demetrios in Rocky River.
- We’ll sponsor staff grants to support teacher-led initiatives that benefit our students. And this is just the beginning!
PTA relies on the support of our Westlake Elementary families and staff. Joining PTA is easy (just visit http://bit.ly/WESPTA2019 to sign up online). From there, you can be as involved as you’d like to be! The weekly eblast will notify you of upcoming events, provide updates from the principals, and share volunteer opportunities. All are invited to join our PTA membership meetings – generally the first Thursday of the month at 7pm. Any updates to the schedule will be published in the weekly eblast. This is certain to be an exciting year for our children and community, and PTA is thrilled to be part of it. We hope you’ll join PTA in supporting the exciting journey ahead. All 4 One, Sarah Camden WES PTA President, 2019-2020 firstname.lastname@example.org
