Happy Friday! We all made it through the first full week – spirit stores, orientation, and so much student learning! Hope you all had a great week! This week’s email is pretty short and sweet!
Membership: A couple of years ago we asked parents to pay a membership fee of $5 to join the PTO. We no longer ask for that as a membership fee – we want all parents/teachers/staff to know they are a member of PTO by having a child(ren) at the school or working there or both! Instead, we would like to give parents the opportunity to give the $5 to help offset PTO operating expenses. If you can and would like to give more we would not turn your offer down. You can make an online donation here
VOLUNTEER SIGN UPS: You can see all of the open PTO volunteer opportunities here
VOLUNTEER TRAINING: This is done through the school district and the counselors. If you have not done volunteer training and would like to volunteer at any school in FISD click here . You only have to do one training even if you have multiple children in more then one school in FISD. If you have any questions please reach out to the counselors.
ROOM PARENTS: Don’t forget to turn your form in or sign up online here if you want to be entered in the drawing to be your child(ren) room parent. One room parent will be selected for each home room. You can find more info here. You only need to complete an online form OR a paper form. We prefer online as it guarantees we will get your submission on time. We will still gladly take paper forms as well. If you want to put your name in the drawing for multiple children you are welcome to do so – if you are chosen for more one child, we will only assign you to one class. We would not assign you to multiple home rooms. The deadline to enter is AUGUST 30TH! No exceptions!!!
LUNCH: Both schools will open to allow for lunch visitors THIS Wednesday, August 28th. Don’t forget to have your driver’s license when you check in that will be scanned every time you come into the school. Please also remember that you were only allowed to bring lunch for your child(ren) and no other child(ren) at the school. Lunch visitors can be an immediate family member (mom, dad, sibling or grandparent)
Don’t forget to check out the calendar on the school pages, or on the PTO page or the events section of the Westwood and Bales FB page to see all upcoming events!
Have a great weekend!
