|Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!|
Welcome to the Westchester PTA! Whether you're a returning family or new to our school, we are excited to have you as part of the Westchester community. We hope this site will provide valuable information on what we do and ways to get involved.
Please join the Westchester PTA today!
We encourage all families to join the PTA (and renew annually). Why? Your membership makes you part of a parent community that serves the diverse needs of our students, teachers, and staff by:
Providing the school with special items that are outside normal district funding, taking stress off our teachers and allowing our students to experience a more immersive learning environment.

- Multiple teacher grants; field trips + birthday celebrations for all students
- Community events
- Ongoing staff appreciation support + community event funding
