GRADE LEVEL AMBASSADORS (GLAs)

We need one or two parents from each grade level to act as a communicator with other parents in your class. This is NOT for personal communication or intervention among parents, but only as an aide to communication relating to Westmark. Essential responsibilities:  Send out weekly emails or make phone calls to remind parents of upcoming school functions, sports events, parent education meetings, school trips, special dress days, etc.  Attend monthly WPA meetings  Act in conjunction with the school as a liaison for communication between the school, teachers, and the parents in your grade, reinforcing information they might send out or need sent out in a timely manner to the entire class. ​​

COMMITTEES

A series of parties hosted year-round by parents for parents. A wonderful opportunity to build community and meet families in every division. This is a great way to fundraise and support Westmark School. ​
Mailers and General Westmark School/Office Help: These volunteers will be called upon on an "as needed" basis to stuff envelopes, send out invitations, decorate for an event, or fill in as extra help with any of our school functions. This is a good opportunity for people with irregular schedules.​​
In association with the school’s multiculturalism efforts, the IDC plans to host events, speakers, and celebrations, as well as provide support throughout the school year.​​
WPA is responsible for the school Hot Lunch program. We need 2-3 volunteers EVERY SCHOOL DAY to check students in so they can receive their hot lunch from our vendor. Shifts are typically from 11:30-12:45 or 11:45 - 1:15 depending on the day. Sign up for a regular day each week, a week at a time, or periodically when your schedule allows.​​
Join the Hospitality committee and help with refreshments at WPA meetings and other events.​​​​
Help us sell Gently Used Uniforms at designated school events, and assist in sorting and returning Lost & Found items throughout the year. ​​​
We are expanding the scope of this committee beyond the one luncheon in the spring. Early stage plans include adding more mini-events during Teacher Appreciation Week, as well as the following efforts initiated last year: Breakfast for staff on the first day of school, breakfast on the first day back after winter break, and snacks during parent/teacher conferences. Plus potential other displays of appreciation throughout the year.​​​
