Roses 2

 
Thank you to the Westhill community for coming out to socialize and celebrate at our first ever Westhill Social Fundraiser!  The event was held on 
November 4th at Pellicci’s restaurant and was a tremendous success, raising just about $13,000 for WHS. The funds raised will support our many WPTSO programs, such as Donors Choose and After Prom, with a portion going to each grade level to support their fundraising targets.

 Thank you to our community businesses and 
Westhill parents who contributed so generously.   
 A very special thank you to Toni Brennan and Jennifer Edwards for chairing the event with a lot of help from Virginia Prial, Jennifer Marchetti,
 Judy Klym, Cindy Ottaviano, and Anna Hallet.
