Westchester PTO Facebook Page
As a PTO, we are committed to putting as much as we can on the Westchester PTO's Website. However, Facebook remains an effective platform to communicate day to day messages to a large cross section of our community. Please follow the Westchester PTO's Facebook page for up to date information on events, and things happening at Westchester.
Grade Level Facebook Pages
There is a lot going on at Westchester that is not captured on this website. The Grade Level Facebook Pages are a great place for connecting with other parents, finding out about activities, and getting some news about what is going on inside your grade level's community. You should also keep an eye on these pages to learn about the formation of Soccer, Baseball, and Basketball teams; swim and dance classes. Click on one of the six links below to get to your child's grade level facebook page.
The Westchester WE Give Campaign
WeGive is the primary fundraiser for the Westchester PTO, and is 100% tax deductible.

Kirkwood STEAMFest and St. Louis Science Fair
STEAMFest is the Kirkwood School District’s science fair to pre-qualify eligible projects to advance to the annual Academy of Science St. Louis Science Fair. Students in grades Kindergarten through 12 are invited to share and celebrate their STEAM projects. Learn more about Kirkwood STEAMFest and the St. Louis Science Fair here.
Westchester VEX Club
Robotics is not only the future, it is also the present. The Westchester VEX club provides 4th and 5th grade students with an opportunity to learn how to program, work with sensors, and hone the critical thinking skills they will need to succeed in both the 21st century workforce and everyday life. Beyond learning math, science and engineering principles, VEX Robotics solutions encourage creativity, teamwork, leadership, passion, and problem-solving in groups. Our hope is to have at least two teams, and maybe more depending on interest and availability of parent volunteers.
