Message from the PTG President:

Dear West Siders,
A huge Thank You to Edra Tepper and her committee for organizing and assisting our children with their purchases at our annual Holiday Boutique. The children really enjoyed shopping for their loved ones!
On 12/9 is our Holiday Cookie bake which is a special tradition at West Side. We show our appreciation to our West Side staff with trays of baked cookies. Please consider bringing baked goods so we can give every staff member a nice tray and hopefully have enough cookies to make trays for the bus drivers.
With the holidays approaching, we would like to wish those who celebrate a very Happy Chanukah! Have a wonderful weekend.

Warm Regards,

We would like to thank our volunteers: Ingrid Wright, Ana Shammah, Diane Zahtila, Michelle Rampi, Katie Zarboutis, Kristyn Mulada , Lisa Baxter, Phil Castellano, Kim Parziale, Maryann Lombardo, Lauren Jasinski, Christin DeSimone, Emily Moriarty, Reagan Cornish, Nicole Boutis, Michele Coco, Christine Masata, Tara Kaufman, Blake Woodworth, Ann Marie Tighe and all of the parents and staff who helped our little ones shop.
