Hello, Warrior families! It was great to see so many of you at last night’s Back-to-School event! I hope that everyone left with a sense of optimism and excitement for what the school year will bring for you and your child.
Parent feedback is a crucial element of the work we do at Western. It’s important for me to hear from you regularly about what is working well and also about areas we could be focusing on for improvement. With that in mind, I would like to invite anyone who is interested to a conversation on Thursday, September 26 at 6:30 here at WAHS. Our parent council rep, Amanda Alger, will be here to give a brief recap of the work of Parent Council this year and will seek your input on upcoming parent council topics such as school safety and the school division budget process. I’d like to hear from you about how the year is going. Also, I’d be very interested in seeing if we have parents who would like to serve in leadership roles on the Western PTO this year. Currently we do not have an executive board for the PTO, and having this support and advisory organization is important.
I promise we’ll keep things informal, and if you’ve got some ideas to share and/or some interest in helping with the PTO, please plan to attend. I look forward to seeing many of you that evening.
Patrick J. McLaughlin, Ed. D.
