MESSAGE FROM THE PTSO PRESIDENTS 

Thank you to those who donated in response to our special blast last week.  We are appreciative of the support for our students, teachers and staff.  If you have not given, there is still time and we hope you will consider helping out by donating online here.  

Also, the PTSO website has been updated to reflect upcoming PTSO meetings.  Please check it out and mark for your calendars for our joint meeting with the WMS PTO in Boston in January, our meetings on course selections in late January/early February and the movie  "If Only"  on drug addiction in March.

As always, please reach out to us at  whsptsopres@gmail.com with any questions, comments and/or concerns
