Westwood Elementary School's PTO has been an incredible source of support to the school, the students, and the faculty and staff this year. Despite the struggling economy in our county, this group of parents and teachers has raised amazing amounts of money. Beginning in the fall of 2009, the organization set goals and within the hours plans were underway to run the concession stand during basketball games on campus, an order was placed of new WWES logo spirit wear to be sold at Family Night, the Fall Festival, and every monthly PTO meeting.  Members have been dedicated to participate in monthly organizational meetings, gatherings, brain storming, and committee meetings. Knowing that funding is placed right back into the classrooms, new parents and teachers are more encouraged to participate. The PTO committee members surprised the faculty with gift cards from Wal-Mart to purchase items for their rooms. They also conducted their own "Extreme Teacher's Lounge Make over" in February 2010. Thanks to donations from family and friends of Westwood and the continuous sells of the very popular spirit wear, the PTO was able to assist in a project that many had wanted for a long outside dining experience, just outside the school cafeteria. With the PTO in full gear, they have planned the first Westwood PTO Open scheduled for Thursday, June 11th at 9AM at Mountain Aire Golf Course in West Jefferson. The golf tournament format is Captain's Choice and the entry fee is only $60 per person. Participants can enter as an individual or a 4 person team. Registration forms may be picked up at Westwood Elementary or print from the school website Registration deadline is June 1tth. For questions regarding the golf tournament, please contact Ashley Brown at 336-877-2921. For questions regarding Westwood’s PTO, please contact DeAnna S. Lewis at 828-964-3930.
