The Westside Community Council provides an opportunity for Westside families to work together toward a common purpose and shared vision.
It is our goal to be minimalist in what we undertake as a Council so that we accomplish that which is our priority as well as possible.
With the help of our Principal, the teachers and the Board, we have focused our attention on opportunities for parents to enhance
the learning environment for our children and build community among our families.
The following is a description of volunteer opportunities that we hope you will consider. Each of the leadership roles on the
Westside Community Council will be co-chaired because we believe that we all work better in teams. The co-chair positions allow for
one person with previous experience in the role and one person new to the position.
If you have a particular area of interest or expertise but cannot afford the time commitment, please come to us and we will help find a way for you to contribute. We hope to engage as many Westside families as possible because service in our school community provides a unique
opportunity to get to know other families better and create a more positive learning environment.
There are many opportunities to get involved at Westside, especially in the classroom; in addition to the list below, each teacher
communicates specific classroom needs to parents. If you don't see something here that suits you, please know that multiple chances
to help will be available throughout the year.
