Message from the PTG President:
Dear West Siders,
The West Side Win Raffle is one of our two major fundraisers which allows us to fund the many wonderful events throughout the year such as: Halloween Dance, Ice Skate Night, Sports Game Night, Ice Cream Social and the Movie Night, just to name a few. The money raised also allows us to provide many more cultural arts programs for our children, which are not in our district budget. Along with the West Side Run held in the Spring, we are able to do all of these things as well as purchase a gift for the school which will benefit our children. Last year we purchased the tables and umbrellas for the patio outside the library. That space has been converted to a comfortable sitting area which may be used on a pleasant day for class instruction or for the friendship club to meet outside for lunch.
With the purchase of a raffle ticket you not only have a chance to win cash prizes but you are also invited to join us at the Win Cocktail Party held on Friday, October 14th @7pm at the Vardy-Stearn residence. There will be cocktails, food, a live DJ and great company! It is always a fun night to see old friends and meet new families. Winners of the raffle will be announced at the party.
Please consider purchasing your ticket today! We want to continue these wonderful traditions and cannot provide all of the amazing events and programs without your support!
I hope to celebrate with you all at the party!
Thank you to Ingrid Wright and the parent volunteers for assisting our children on Photo Day!
