Wizard Walk - October 12th
8:30am to 11:15am @ Westchase Recreation Center Field
On Friday, September 29th, your Westchase Elementary PTA kicked off Wizard Walk with an exciting student pep rally and we hope this year’s walk is even more fun than last year! The money raised will support these school improvements requested by our staff – replace current technology needs, replace the PE water fountains, upgrade the school water fountains, add a new shade cover to the other PE court and add new technology to our classrooms. Because Wizard Walk is fully-managed by PTA volunteers and school staff, more of the funds raised will directly benefit our school. The focus is less on toys and prizes and more on schoolwide and classroom incentives. So, get excited, get involved and reach out to friends and family to support you and your school! If every Wizard can raise just $55, we will be able to meet this goal.
