PTO


Do you remember the anticipation you felt as a child when you knew that there was a field trip the next day?  Or the excitement when you got to school and found out there was an assembly? The parents of the West Rockhill PTO work hard to give these same experiences to your children.

Field trips and assemblies are not the only things the PTO does for the school. Below is a short explanation of additional fun events: 

 

Mountain Lion Festival

At the Mountain Lion Festival you can purchase tickets for carnival games to win prizes. There are tricycle races, pie eating contests, pumpkin decorating, and a raffle for gift baskets. The cafeteria will be selling hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, and other snacks. 

 

Race for Education

This is our big fundraiser for the year. The students ask family and friends to sponsor them in a race around the bus circle in front of the school. The PTO takes care of mailing out the paperwork and the collection of the donations. There are prizes for the most laps run and the most donations collected.

 

Bingo Night

This is an exciting night of Bingo in the cafeteria. Prizes are gift cards for Target, Walmart, and other local businesses. There is also a bake sale.

 

Family Fun Nights

These are monthly activities with a nominal cost for the families of West Rockhill. Activities we have had in the past include a movie night, a ceramics night, and a night at a “bouncy” (inflatable) place.

 

Book Fair

This is a book sale that takes place in the library. Your child will get a chance to purchase books during their library period and also one night after school. The proceeds go toward the purchase of additional library materials. 

 

We also have the School Store for students to purchase school supplies every Wednesday morning in the lobby before school, and the Yearbook. We collect Boxtops for Education and Campbell’s Soup Labels. We also organize parent volunteers for lunch duty and Field Day.

 

Come out to our meetings or volunteer to help at our many activities. We appreciate any and all participation!!!
