How We Do It …YOU!

The West Elementary PTO is a successful and enthusiastic organization because of phenomenal parental involvement. Not only are all PTO programs, events and initiatives managed with 100% volunteer power, all PTO initiatives are 100% funded by charitable donations from parents and friends of West El.
