The West Lake Elementary PTA would like to welcome all new and returning students as we look forward to a positive and memorable 2018-2019 school year! Your PTA board is already hard at work preparing programs and events in keeping with the National PTA mission “to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children”.
We are reaching out to you for your membership, involvement, fellowship and commitment this year. A strong PTA supports our children, our school and our community. This year, we are excited to tackle lots of big projects to improve the overall presentation of our school including the exterior, interior and continuing to install new technology throughout the classrooms.

More information will be coming home with your child soon but don’t forget to follow the West Lake Elementary PTA Facebook page for information as well!

The West Lake PTA is excited to announce the return of the Boosterthon Fun Run to help us achieve our fundraising goals for the 2017-2018 school year. The Boosterthon Fun Run is a fun, two-week character, fitness and leadership program that combines world-class and engaging character content with a fundraising event for our school.
West Lake Elementary’s Boosterthon event will kick off August 10th with a pep rally for Track 1, 2, and 4 students; a pep rally for Track 3 students will be held August 21st. The Fun Runs themselves will take place on August 17th (Track 2) and Aug. 25th (Tracks 1, 3 and 4).
To build student pride in this event, we will provide each student with a free t-shirt to wear the day of their Fun Run. This t-shirt will be custom for West Lake Elementary, allowing each student to have a school spirit shirt that they can wear throughout the year. (Don’t worry, you’ll still have the opportunity to order additional spiritwear for your family in the fall.)
Pricing options are as follows:
If you know of or are part of a business that would like to sponsor our t-shirts, please contact Dawn Earp at email@example.com or 919-395-8277 for additional information. We need a commitment from all sponsors by July 5th in order to have the business logos printed on the shirts. To learn more about the Boosterthon Fun Run, visit Boosterthon.com and watch the overview video. Thank you in advance for your support of this fundraising effort!
Space is still available for Parents’ Night Out, which will be held from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2nd. Participants will enjoy a pizza dinner, followed by open gym, craft projects, bingo and a movie.
This event is open to WLE students only, and space is limited. Cost is $15 for one student and $10 more for a sibling. There is a $30 maximum for families with more than two children.
