The staff and faculty of Westchester Intermediate School would like to take this opportunity to offer a sincere THANK YOU to our students, their parents, extended families and community members. Without your continued support, our programs and initiatives for our students would not be possible. Again, THANK YOU!!
With that being said, we would like to mention a few different ways for families to continue their support of WIS and our community with some simple fund raising efforts.
Please feel free to dispose of all your recyclable paper products in the green paper retrievers on the south side of the building. We can accept newspapers, gift wrap, magazines, catalogs, and fax/office paper, but please do not put any cardboard in the dumpsters as this is not recyclable through Abitibi.
This program is run through our PTO and benefits our school by providing funds for various PTO sponsored events. Flyers are sent home monthly with the students in their Thursday folders. You may order from the flyer and return it with your student, or place an order online at marketday.com. Pick up is on the third Monday of each month.
Simply use your Red Card for purchases made at the Target in Valparaiso and WIS will receive a percentage of the purchases on a quarterly basis. If you don’t have a Red Card, sign up at the Customer Service Desk.
Sign up for a “Fun Funds” card with Gordon’s and a percentage of the purchases made are rebated to WIS. Forms are available at Gordon’s and will be available at WIS very soon.
Our newest fund raising effort with the support of our local Dairy Queen that’s delicious and practical. Just visit the Pendleton’s Dairy Queen on Indian Boundary Road on December 13th from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. order anything hot or cold, and WIS will receive 20% of all sales. We are anxious to start this monthly program, not only to have a tasty treat, but to also see some of our students and their families enjoying a DQ treat too. Join us on December 13th, and again on the following dates: January 13th, February 7th, and March 14th. The students will be reminded during morning announcements and it will be on our calendars that we send home as well as on our website.
