The teachers are awesome and the curriculum accelerated. The PTA is strong with 100% parent participation. The first week of school, a packet filled with information is sent home. Questions of all sorts can be answered in this packet. The front office has extra packets on hand for families who come at a later date. The PTA is open for all to join. This year there are several new board members. The PTA brings all sorts of programs to the school-- After School Enrichment, Fall Festival, Gingerbread Shop, Helping Hands, Kindergarten Round UP, Mentor, Parent/Teacher Kickball, Ready Reader, Reflections, Super Summer Sign-ups, Teacher Appreciation, Veterans Day, and Walk to School Day, etc. We are lucky to have so many volunteers that work well together earning thousands of dollars over the years to put towards computers, playground covers, teacher grants, and more. The PTA has a web site that is easily assessable at www.westchasepta.org. I don t know how the military family that stated such harsh words about the Westchase PTA came to the conclusion they did. Websites, fliers, and emails aren t for everyone when it comes to communication.
