Westbriar Elementary School PTA

Your PTA Thanks YOU


 

  • Thank you to Elisa Clifton, our Walk to School chair.  Elisa organized and promoted a very successful Walk to School event on October 2nd.  We will have several more Walk to School Wednesdays this fall and spring, during which students who walk to school can pick out tokens for their W2S necklaces.  Keep on walking -- it's so much better for our environment than driving in your car!

  • Thank you to Jennifer Sellers, who managed our spirit wear orders this year.  She designed the options, managed and promoted the ordering process, collected all payments, and sorted and handed out all of the different orders.  Now we're all decked out as Falcons!  Thank you, Jennifer!

  • Thank you to Anahita Kamjou, who has set us up for our first Falcon Arts program this year (the replacement for GRACE Arts.)  Anahita recruited volunteers from every classroom, edited artist info and projects for presentation, and ordered all the art supplies for the year for the entire school to enjoy the program.  Special thanks as well to Stenwood PTA, for sharing their Creative Bee program with us, so we didn't have to reinvent the wheel.  Thank you, Anahita!  And thank you, Deanna Heier(Stenwood PTA President) and Lisa Mak(Stenwood PTA VP of Social Affairs.)

  • Thank you to Angie Gutenson, Hina Jumani, Gulcin Ross, Trish Vanstory, and Valerie McFalls, our bylaws committee, for putting together a new set of proposed bylaws for our PTA to adopt this year, nicely in time for our bylaws revision due date!

  • Thank you to Natalie Lueders, Brooke Edwards, Olga Feschenko, and Sang Hee Kim, our Display Case committee.  They are doing an excellent job of creatively decorating our PTA display case in the front hallway.  Their work informs, sparks interest, and lightens up the hallway for all to see!

  • Thank you to Jenni Bae, who organizes Westbriar's #iCare inclusion program, for her work in putting together a school-wide curriculum teaching inclusion for all.

  • Thank you to Crystal Petersen, Valerie McFalls, and Jessica Chen, who are our parent volunteers for Science Olympiad this year.  They have recruited students for teams and are organizing and prepping them to compete in the regional Science Olympiad this fall.  Good luck, Westbriar!

  • Thank you to Roopa Chowbey, our Odyssey of the Mind chair.  Roopa has recruited teams and coaches who will prep throughout the year and then compete in the spring.  The student teams gather regularly with their coaches.  They learn how to solve complex problems in a group setting, and they get to know one another, too.

  • Thank you to Nandita Kalyan, our Spelling Bee chair.  Nandita has registered Westbriar in the Scripps Spelling Bee competition.  Soon you'll hear more about registration for our Westbriar Spelling Bee, which is set for February 20th.
