Westmoor PTO

Westmoor PTO


My name is Amy McArthur (family name, Theisen- pronounced “Tyson”) and I am the incoming President of the Westmoor PTO. I hope you had a wonderful summer!

In this Back-to-School issue of the Westmoor 
Weekly, you will find valuable forms and information to help you get ready. Please read each page, noting key actions to take, or key dates to note in your family calendars. 

Important this year, please take special note of the document related to the Paperless PTO website and APP because ALL volunteering (including classroom and library volunteering) and all purchasing of pizza lunches, PTO dues, and Spirit wear will be done through this site.

We will no longer be using Sign-up Genius for any of our WM activities. The APP is also the location where you will easily be able to access class and staff directories and notify the school if your child will be absent.

Please take a minute to open and bookmark the westmoorpto.com website because you will be accessing it a lot throughout the year. More information about accessing Paperless PTO and the APP is included in the PPTO document.

If you are new to the school, WELCOME! We look forward to welcoming you to the Westmoor family! Please reach out to me or the new family liaison, Ena Chang, if we can help with any questions as you get familiar with our school and community.

Each year, VERY generous family donations of time and money allow the PTO to continue to provide so much for our kids, families, and teachers to enrich their learning experience, including: 

  • School Supply Sale
  • Science Fair
  • Class Parties
  • Spirit Wear
  • Special Lunches Days
  • Pizza Lunch Thursdays
  • 5th Grade Musical Cast Pizza Party
  • Multiple Assemblies
  • 5th Grade Yearbook & Party
  • Year-End Family Picnic
  • New this year:
    District-wide Parents Only Night out
  • Back-to-School Bash 
  • Book Fair
  • Grade Level Family Fun Nights
  • Field Trips for each grade
  • Artist in Residence Program
  • All School Art Fair 
On Saturday, September 29th, from 11 am1 pm, we will hold the Back to School Bulldog Bash at Westmoor. This event will be a great way to reconnect with one another and a nice way to meet our new Westmoor families. Mark your calendars!  
If you haven’t gotten involved yet, we have many committees such as Hospitality, Book Fair, Fun Nights, and Science Fair that can always use just an hour or two of your help, so even if you work full-time, there are many things you can fit into your schedule.

Please email me, Missy Lyons, or Julia Mateja (Co-VPs of Committees) if you are interested in getting involved – we’ll help you connect with the right committee to fit your interests and time availability!  

This year, we are going back to Friday afternoons right before pick-up for our PTO Meetings – the first PTO Meeting will take place on Friday, September 14th from 2:20 pm-3:20 pm in the Large Conference Room. We hope you will join us as we kick off another great year at Westmoor!
