West Elementary PTA Silly String Fundraiser!

Our annual Silly String fundraiser is underway!

Please check your student’s backpacks to participate in the fun, end of the year activity.  All donations are being used to enhance the technology at West. Our goal this year is to purchase 999 cans of silly string.  When we reach our school-wide goal, Mrs. Mills will take a pie in the face!  The students enjoy stringing up the teachers and celebrating the awesome 2017-2018 school year!

 If you need an extra form please let your child’s teacher know or you can e-mail npwestpta@gmail.com and we will be sure to get you one.  Orders are due on May 18th.

Thank you for supporting West Elementary!
