ACTIVITY, EVENTS and PROGRAMS DESCRIPTIONS- TBD and may be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Studies show that students do better in school when their parents are involved.   Parent volunteers are critical to the success and continuation of the many academic and community-building programs PTO sponsors annually. Chairing an activity is a great way to collaborate with friends and meet new people in the process. If you have any questions, please email president@westergardpto.org
