PARENT PARTICIPATION ORGANIZATION - WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?

The Westmount High School Parent Participation Organization, commonly known as the PPO, provides parents & guardians with the opportunity to be an active and vital part of our school community.  Working in conjunction with school administration, students and staff, we orient the PPO efforts towards helping WHS meet important needs. 

We participate in many annual school events including Open House, Parent/Teacher Night, Family Breakfast, Teacher Appreciation, Family Fun Day, Car Wash, PLUK (Previously Loved Uniform Kiosk) as well as special events and fundraising.   Past successes of which we are particularly proud include setting 2 annual scholarships for deserving students continuing their education to CEGEP or University as well as the fabulous "Grab a Seat Campaign" in 2017 where our community raised over $16,000 towards refurbishing the chairs in the auditorium which led to a complete renovation of the auditorium.

 

Upcoming and Ongoing PPO Activities and Events


PPO Meetings

We meet once a month at school, and all parents/guardians are welcome to attend.  Next meeting is scheduled for April 19th, 2018 from 6-7pm in the school library (located one floor up from the main entrance and to the left). Hope to see you there!

Note: Minutes from previous meetings (starting September 2017) can be found in the attachments at the bottom of this page.


Previously Loved Uniforms Kiosk (PLUK)

PLUK is one of many initiatives at Westmount High School designed to benefit our students and their families. This program started out of a will to increase recycling at WHS, one of the core values of our school.

As an added advantage, we are able to provide school uniforms at greatly reduced rates. All proceeds go to the PPO to support school initiatives and upgrades, all items are reasonably priced at $5 and $10, although cash only please.

Don't know what to do with your too-small uniforms? PLUK will take them! Simply drop them off or send them with your child to the front office, and they will give them to PLUK. Note: We are in particular need of skirts, sweaters, and small sized pants.

Date of next PLUK sale: early June, at the placement exam for students entering Sec I in September.
