The Westport Parent Teacher Student Organization (WPTSO) is an organization whose purpose is to strengthen, enhance and nourish all aspects of the educational and social environment of WCS. Its goals are to complement the school experience by providing additional opportunities for parents, teachers and students to learn, socialize, communicate and grow.
The WPTSO is made up of general members and board members.
The WPTSO operates on an annual budget, which is approved by a WPTSO Membership vote.
The money used to sponsor WPTSO activities is raised through WPTSO fundraising events and initiatives.
The WPTSO has an annual meeting each year to review its mission and structure, assess its effectiveness within the school community and make any necessary changes.
The general Membership includes parents, teachers, students and community members who are all welcome to help carry out the organization's mission.
The Board is composed of ten members who are either elected or appointed to the positions listed below. The number of board members can vary based on the needs of the group. Term limits for each position are one year with the option to be nominated again and extend the term.
3 Officers (President, Secretary, and Treasurer)
2 Student Members
2 Faculty Members (one of them filing the Teacher Liaison role)
2 Additional Members (one of them filling the membership coordinator role)
The current WPTSO would like to recognize and thank the hard work and dedication of past WPTO members--the most recent being Holly Mitchell who faithfully served as secretary and an active member for over 7 years. Holly's professionalism, candor and giving nature saw the PTSO through transition and much growth (keeping us on track and accountable throughout). Thank you for Holly for your time, your inspiration and your committment to this school and this community.
