Message from the President

Dear West High Families,

The PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) welcomes the West High community to our 2022-2023 school year.  Our theme this year is “Refresh”.  The last two years have been extremely challenging for everyone.  The upcoming school year of 2022-2023 will give us an opportunity to “Refresh” the PTSA and get back to all the wonderful things we do for our children’s education through advocacy and support of the students, the teachers and the families at West High School.

PTSA is for everyone!  Parents, guardians, students, teachers, grandparents, administrators and all community members are invited to become members.   Some of the activities the PTSA funds are used for include: Library support, our Warrior Welcome, Reflections Arts Program, Teacher Appreciation Celebrations, Parent Education Nights, Scholarships and Grad Night.   In addition to supporting the PTSA through your Membership and Direct Donations, there are many opportunities to volunteer for PTSA sponsored events.  These opportunities range in time and commitment, giving everyone a chance to be supportive however they can. We would like to see everyone become part of the West High PTSA team.  Please remember, PTSA, and the activities it funds for our students, does not exist without your help.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported the PTSA this past year through financial and time donations. This allowed the PTSA to continue with the funded events and in addition, funded a generous gift to the school.  

Become a PTSA member by clicking on WHS PTSA Webstore or TOTEM or see the attached Membership/Direct Donation drop-off form. (Cost is $9 per membership)  Seniors applying for a PTSA sponsored Scholarship must be a member.  Consider a donation by clicking on Direct Donation and select the box for Donations or use the Membership/Direct Donation drop-off form.  Please remember to check with your employer for Corporate Gift Matching.

Let’s Refresh our commitment to the West High School students and teachers by joining the PTSA! 

We need you. 

They need you.

Let’s Go Warriors! Class of 2023!

Kate Brewer
West High School PTSA President 2022/2023
