East-West Elementary PTO

Parent Teacher Organization Last Updated: 1/6/2020 7:07 PM
The East-West Elementary Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) comprises a supportive group of parents, guardians, and staff. The PTO sponsors number of events throughout the year to raise funds to enhance and improve facilities and experiences for the students of East-West Elementary. In addition, the PTO supports two subcommittees: The West Arts Council for Children (WACC) which enriches students' lives and education through exposure to and participation in the cultural and performing arts; and the Health and Wellness Committee which strives to create a culture of healthy choices in the school community. This committee works to plan wholesome food choices for school functions, school garden activities, healthy family events, and more.
