Parent Teacher Organization

West View’s PTO focuses its efforts in conjunction with District 6 to promote literacy throughout our school and help families “make memories” during their student’s formative years.  Family dinner night, Breakfast with Santa, Fall Carnival, and numerous other opportunities throughout the year provide an opportunity for parents to meet the students, teachers, and other families to build community spirit.  Whether you’re reading to a child, baking during South Carolina day celebration, or volunteering at any number of fundraising opportunities, your influence will positively affect your children and the children of others.  

 

PTO Events and Programs

 

Fall Carnival 

This is our main fundraiser and you are going to love it!  Since this fundraiser will kick off a start to another successful year, we need for you to consider supporting the product we have chosen for our wildcats and their families.  Look for important information surrounding this fundraiser to come home with your child at the beginning of the year!

 

Scholastic Book Fairs

In association with Scholastic, West View is proud to offer a Fall and Spring Book fair where children, teachers, and parents can purchase books while giving back to the school through Scholastic bucks redeemed for equipment and books for our students. 

 

General Mills Box Tops

Collect and send in Box Top proofs of purchases to earn cash and educational/recreational materials for West View. Visit www.boxtops4education.com to register and West View will earn bonus points. Use their Box Tops Marketplace to purchase items at your favorite online retailers (Lands End, JC Penney, Gap, Home Depot, etc.) and we earn more bonus points! Clipping and submitting box tops is an easy way to make hundreds of dollars for your school.

 

Local Business Programs

Another easy way to financially support your PTO and your school is by registering your frequent shopper cards to West View. All you need to do is visit the customer service desk of your favorite grocery stores and then shop!  Once registered, for every dollar you spend, the store will donate a percentage to West View.  Stores that offer these programs include:

  • Bi – Lo Bonus Card (West View is 2962),
  • Ingles “Tools for Schools”
  • Publix

*Please note that Bi-Lo and Ingles require that you update your school choice annually.

 

Papa John’s Dough for Dollars

Cooking is hard, boring work.  Do yourself a favor and take every 1st Wednesday and Thursday of every other month off.  Pick up a pizza from Papa John’s instead.  Simply purchase dinner at Papa John’s, send in the attached stickers with your child the next day, and West View will receive 15% of your purchase!  Collect and send in stickers from these days from family and colleagues too!
