About the PSO


Our Westgate Parent Staff Organization (PSO) is part of the heartbeat of what happens at Westgate Elementary. The PSO is an all-inclusive, welcoming group of volunteer parents and staff working together to plan, organize and implement many of the fun and educational activities that happen inside and out of the classroom at Westgate Elementary. Because of the efforts of PSO volunteers, our students have been able to enjoy many educational and social activities that make our school so special and wouldn’t be possible without the support of the PSO.
