WHS Parent Participation Organization (PPO)
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 have been setting 2 annual scholarships to deserving students continuing their education to CEGEP or University.
We meet once a month at school, and any parent or guardian is welcome to attend. Our meeting schedule is set for 7pm in the staff room right across the administration office as follows: February 6th, March 15th, April 5th, May 17th, 2017.
Here’s what we are working on this year:
Grab A Seat Campaign
"Grab a seat" and let us tell you about our fundraiser campaign to refurbish the chairs in the auditorium of Westmount High School!
Our auditorium is the epicenter of our school: it’s where we hold assemblies, music concerts, plays and other performances. It’s also where families with prospective students gather when they first arrive at the school. But the hall is showing its wear. Many of the seats are held together with duct tape! They are in desperate need of repair.
The Grab a Seat Campaign aims to raise $80,000 to reupholster and repair the chairs. We are reaching out to parents of students present and past, and to members of the community at large, to raise the necessary funds.
Go to: www.grabaseat.myevent.com and there are two ways to donate:
1) You can “buy a chair” for $100 and have a name of your choice engraved on a commemorative plaque on the back of the chair.
2) You can give money in any amount.
We thank you for your help!

WHS will be hosting our next large fundraising event, all to benefit the Grab A Seat campaign.
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.
