OUR MISSION

To enrich and maximize the education of every child at Westergard Elementry School.

We do this by building relationships between the faculty, students, and parents through fundraising and funding educational enhancements.

The Westergard PTO is a collaboration between parents who have children enrolled at Westergard, teachers, staff,  and the school administration. We work together to provide enrichment and opportunities to support our children’s educational experience. We do this by supporting programs that the district does not fund or providing teaching materials and learning opportunities to supplement our children’s education. We deeply appreciate your dedication to your children and your support of our school. Your commitment helps to give our students the best possible education. We look forward to seeing you at our future events!

2022-2023 President's Message

Hello Westergard Families,

On behalf of our Parent Teacher Organization, I would like to welcome you to the new school year! It is my privilege to serve another year as your PTO President. 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a non-profit volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. We work together to provide enrichment and opportunities to support our children’s educational experience. We do this by funding programs that the district does not fund and providing teaching materials and learning opportunities to supplement our children’s education--all of which is only possible through the generous donations of our Westergard families!

Last year, through your generosity and support, we were able to provide all our teachers and department heads with generous classroom stipends, fully fund our PE and Art program, support our school technology needs, and much much more. 

Please consider taking the following steps towards being actively engaged in your school community.

#1 Join the conversation! Help shape your child’s educational experience by participating in our quarterly PTO meetings where we look ahead at defining new goals and putting resources to our existing ones! Our first meeting is on Tuesday, September 13th at 3:30 in the school library.​

#2 Volunteer with PTO! No experience is necessary, we only need your commitment to our students. There are 

many opportunities and needs for you to get involved whether it is once a year, once a month, or every day. (WCSD yearly volunteer clearance required)

#3 Donate to support student learning! We make sure every dollar donated works for our students and expands and enriches their educational experience. We have two main fundraisers planned for the year, but you can make a donation anytime on our website.

We hope you will be inspired to join us in whatever capacity you are able and can donate to support students at Westergard!

Sincerely,

Jasmine Croarkin
