The West Dodge Station PTO is made up of our members, the executive board and committee chairs. We rely on volunteers to accomplish the work we do each school year and would not be able to achieve our mission of supporting WDS families, students and staff without these volunteers. 

Who Are Our Members?

All parents/guardians of current West Dodge Station students, West Dodge Station teachers, and West Dodge Station administrators are PTO members and shall have voting rights. No dues are required for membership.
What Do We Do?
We raise and distribute funds throughout the year to support the school. We fund grants for the school, teachers, and classrooms and coordinate events for families throughout the year. Our annual Fun Run Fundraiser event is held in the fall and this is the main event for students to be involved in raising funds. Families can also support the school by participating in other opportunities such as family dinner nights, TAGG, Amazon Smile, Box Tops for Education, and more. Annual events are a carnival in spring and a family bingo night in winter. We also coordinate volunteers for other school functions such as book fairs, classroom parties, and health screenings, and meals for teacher conferences. A week is set aside during second semester for special teacher/staff appreciation and celebration.
