Teacher Conference Dinner   
November 1        2:30 - 6 pm

PTO provides dinner for our teachers on the late night of conferences. We need donations of food as well as help setting up dinner at 2:30 pm that day.

We also accept monetary donations which we can purchase food items with. Monetary donations can be sent in an envelope to the main office labeled Teacher Dinner.

Below you will find sign-ups for food donations and set-up help. 






Fall Dance
November 9      7 - 9 pm
WSMSA Gym

This is a fundraiser for PTO. We need donations of snacks (chips and candy) to sell at the dance. Donations can be sent to the main office. Please do not send in anything with nuts or Skittles.

We also need chaperones and volunteers to sell dance tickets at lunch. Chaperones check students into the dance, walk around the gym, sell snacks or monitor the locker rooms. Chaperones should arrive by 6:30 pm. Dance tickets are sold during lunch waves and volunteers just need to take the student's money and highlight their name on the sheets provided.

The sign-up to help chaperone or sell tickets, please use the links below:

Items needed for donation to the Nurse's Office:


Our nurse, Ms. Zustovich, usually purchases these items herself but I am hoping that we can help her out. She needs the following items, during the year, for our kids. If you can help out by sending in any of the items below to the main office, she would greatly appreciate it. Any clothing item can be second hand. Here is the list of items:

Small Water Bottles
Saltine Crackers
Snack Size Goldfish Packs
Granola Bars
Boys Shorts (adult medium)
Girls Leggings (adult small, medium and large)
Sweatpants (adult medium and large)

Box-top Collection:

Box-tops are a great way for us to gather funds for our school with little effort. Please send your boxtops in an envelope, with your child's program and grade on them, to the Westside Main Office.



Role Model Mentors:

Kathleen Keefe, one of our Westside parents, works for Role Model Mentors. It is an organization that provides students with a trained high school mentor. If you think your child might benefit from a peer mentor, consider Role Model Mentors as an option. They currently have students from Danbury High School working with them, many of whom are Westside graduates.

If you sign up and mention Westside Middle School, they will donate $50 per referral to WSMSA PTO

Here is the link to their website: Role Model Mentors
