Westside Wishes 2018

What is Westside Wishes?

It’s that time of year again when we request your support of our teachers through the PTO’s “Westside Wishes” campaign. We asked our teachers, “What item do you really need for your classroom or program that will improve students’ learning experience?” You can help to provide the requested items! Click here to visit our Go Fund Me page. Visit https://tinyurl.com/ydfhdsdw to see the items requested by teachers.

Teachers requested items to support student learning in academic subjects as well as learning through activities. Building sets for Theater productions will go much faster with several new drills--$120 each. Drill team will kick for joy with a new portable sound system--$180. Signs and display boards for $170 will help the college center point students to the pathway of success. Building independence and life skills for special education students with cooking, cleaning and laundry supplies is way for a small donation of $7-$30 to make a big difference. It is not all work and no play, a request has also been made for a $175 couch.

Look through the list and see what calls out to your interest and budget. Donations of any amount are appreciated. For example: $75 can purchase a dry erase board for the College Center

There are many ways you can help.
Donate to the Go Fund Me page or by check made to “Westside HS PTO” with “Wishes” in memo.
If you wish to sponsor a specific item listed through donation, please leave a note in the comments, PTO Co-Treasurer, Pamela McCullough,
If you wish to purchase a requested item, and physically deliver to the school to Helen Tran’s attention and let Pamela  McCullough know. Some parents have remarked this is a great way to search for online bargains or use credit card “points” toward purchase such as Surface Pro 3 or Ipad mini. Receipts can be provided for donation of goods.
One of the items requested was gift cards for student incentives. This can be in amounts of $5-$20 for Starbucks, local restaurants and fast food, stores. (Gift cards are also welcome for Westside Friends for students in need.)

Help us spread the word of Westside Wishes. The fundraiser will be extended until later in April.



Thank you,
PTO
