It is another busy week at WW and Bales – here are a few reminders from your PTO team!
Spirit Store: The WW and Bales Online spirit stores are now open!!!
There are two way to get your spirit store items from WWB. Check out the instock store first! These items are ready for delivery on a weekly basis. If you can’t find the shirt size you are looking for there then you can preorder your items on the preorder store
Items will be delivered weekly on Thursday/Friday from the in-stock store. Families with students or staff at WW or Bales – your orders will be delivered to your homeroom based off the above schedule. Families who do not have a student or staff member at WW or Bales – your items will be available for pick up at the WW front office based off the above schedule.
Items ordered from the preorder store will be available about 3 weeks after the store closes. The store closes for pre orders on SEPTEMBER 6th. Those with students at WW or Bales, your shirts will be delivered to your homeroom. Those who do not have students at WW or Bales will be able to pick up your items at Inked Designs (off 2351 close to La Casita).
Thank you and happy shopping!!!!
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 than one school in FISD. If you have any questions please reach out to the counselors.
DEADLINE THIS FRIDAY NO EXCEPTIONS – 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!!!
Both schools will open to allow for lunch visitors TOMORROW. Pack your patience and your Driver’s License! The check in process can take some time – as our wonderful front office team has to scan your DL every time you come in to school. The suggestion is to arrive early so you are not late to lunch.
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 only 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!
Thanks! Go Mustangs!
