The PTO is a non-profit organization founded in November 2004 upon the opening of Westridge Elementary School. It is composed of parents and guardians of students attending Westridge Elementary as well as teachers, school administrators and community members who have an interest in the well being of the school and its students. All members present at the general PTO meetings have voting privileges. There is no membership due required to participate.
The PTO board consists of two Co-Presidents, the Treasurer, and the Secretary. The Co-Presidents preside over all of the meetings, set the agenda, and appoint various committee chairs. The Treasurer is responsible for the finances of the PTO and receives all monies, makes deposits and pays any invoices owed and reports to the PTO each month. The Secretary keeps accurate records of the proceedings of all meetings and makes them available when requested, prepares the minutes of the previous meetings and the agenda after it is set by the co-presidents.
The purpose of the PTO is to provide assistance and support to WRE’s school administration in providing educational opportunities, and to raise funds in support of academic and enrichment programs. To accomplish this, the PTO creates opportunities for, and holds, fundraisers; and, promotes partnership, understanding and communication among the Westridge School parents, guardians, teachers and community.
