Welcome to Teacher Support!  Check back here regularly for information about how you can best support our teachers and staff at Western.
 
We have retired our Adopt A Staff program, which many of you have participated in in the past.  We have received a lot of feedback that our teachers were not experiencing this well-intended program consistently and some were not adopted at all.  So in an effort to ensure all staff are assisted with their needs, we have started a new Teacher Support program. 
 
Here are some of the ways you can help:
 
  1. Donate to the Quarterly Supply drives (watch The Weekly Buzz and this website for information) - this is a new program and critical to our success in supporting our staff.
  2. Donate to our Monthly Dessert Lottery (watch The Weekly Buzz for monthly signup genius).
  3. Donate gift cards, which we will use as drawings periodically (ideally monthly).  You can bring gift cards to the PTSO meetings or place in an envelope marked "PTSO - Teacher Support" and place in the PTSO general mailbox.
  4. Purchase items from the Teacher Wish list for your child's teachers and give them directly to that teacher.
  5. We will periodically (at least quarterly) do a special treat day for our teachers and there will be donation opportunities for these events.
  6. Feel free to check in with your child's teachers regularly to see what they need.
  7. If you would like to do something special for your child's teacher; there is a "Preferences" sheet for many of the teachers in the office - feel free to look at that and provide a treat!
