We are students, staff and parents working together to make West Best in all ways!
Thank you to everyone who has joined and supported PTSO this school year.
Due to flagging interest in our organization, this will be the last year that PTSO will exist. Erica Kegarise and the WAHS Activities Department will assume responsibility for PTSO activities.
Erica still needs parent support! She will be organizing a committee this summer to oversee next fall's Homecoming Parade. If you're interested, contact Erica Kegarise directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amazon Smiles Update. With the dissolution of PTSO, our organization can no longer receive donations from the Amazon Smile program. We suggest you direct your Amazon donations to other worthy West Aurora High School or SD129 district organizations; you can change your designation on the Amazon site. Organizations include:
- West Aurora Blackhawk Sportsboosters
- Aurora West School District 129
- Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)
- Fearn Elementary School PTO
- JH Freeman Elementary School PTA
- Jewel Middle School Parent Teacher Organization
- Washington Middle School PTA.
