How You Can Help

PTA Membership

Become a member and join us for monthly meetings in the school media center. You’ll not only support our school, but you’ll learn the latest about what is happening at Westchester and within CSD. Join here. Note: All donations to Westchester PTA are tax deductible!

Communications & Graphic Design

We always need help communicating all the great things going on at our school, so let us know if you’d like to help write or design for our newsletter, website, flyers, yearbook, spirit wear, etc. We are also looking for parents with a good eye and a decent camera to take photos at some of our fun events.

Spirit Wear

Nothing shows your school spirit better than a WE t-shirt, water bottle or wolf hat. Spirit wear typically is for sale during Community Circle on Fridays and at other school events - volunteers handle transactions. However this year we will be selling via this website with easy home delivery!

Grounds & Building

WE parents help keep our school looking great by cleaning up the school grounds, making repairs to playground equipment, light landscaping, and enhancing the common areas.

Budget/Audit Committee

Work together with the treasurer to create the next year's annual budget, meet with faculty and staff to identify funding wants/needs, and help review books as needed.

Safety Committee

Help our School Leadership Team (SLT) Safety Committee work with the City and transportation officials on ways to slow traffic on Scott Boulevard and make getting to and from school safer for our walkers and rollers.

Sustainability 

A green team leads our effort to reduce the environmental impact of the WE community. This includes everything from the food in our cafeteria and reducing the packing in our school supplies, to our comprehensive recycling program and our Earth Day service event.

Administrative

We need help putting together the PTA directory at the beginning of the year, as well as various administrative tasks throughout the year (counting box tops, assembling folder inserts, data entry/spreadsheet management, laminating, etc.). This is a great way to help at odd hours and from your home as your schedule allows.

Room Parent Coordinator

The room parent coordinator serves as the communication liaison between the PTA and room parents. This role involves distributing information about various events throughout the year to keep Westchester families in the know.

Community Outreach

Serve as an informal liaison with PTAs in the City Schools of Decatur, the Decatur Educational Foundation, and other community groups.


Walk & Roll to School (Bike Dudes)

Our wildly popular Bikes Dudes/Dudettes encourage students to walk and roll to school one Friday each month and are on hand at Community Circle to distribute marbles to those who participate!

Yearbook

Yearbook volunteers produce an amazing compilation of memories for our students each year. Several people are needed to coordinate all the logistics of the yearbook, including content, pictures, dedications and orders.

Passive Fundraising

Box Tops, Publix Partners and dine-outs at local restaurants are among the ways we passively raise money for the school. Volunteers are needed to help manage this effort and keep funds flowing into WE.
