ONLINE DIRECTORY

The Westport Schools directory is ready! Access to the directory is available upon registering and providing payment to each school where you have a child registered. Each Westport school PTA is a separate, non-profit organization that provides financial support and parent volunteers for a wide range of programs, services and social events that enrich our children's educational experience. By registering on AtoZ Connect you are joining the school’s PTA as a supporting member. Membership does not require volunteering but does fund the enrichment programs at your school provided by the PTA. We cannot do this without the support of all parents, teachers and staff within each school community.

Staff had the opportunity to have their blood pressure checked by Nurse Zimmerman. Parents attended an informative session on heart health in children and how to use an AED led by Mike Papale from In A Heartbeat Foundation. Together we also raised over $200 for this cause.
