2020-2021 Invest in Excellence Campaign
Invest in Excellence is the PTSO's way of NOT selling items. It is a straightforward request for a tax-deductible donation in lieu of any third-party or social event fundraising. Those avenues to raise funds are typically reserved for the Athletic Boosters and the student clubs. Invested money is used to support academic needs at WHS.
Membership: Your donation to Invest in Excellence includes a $25 membership to the PTSO. Membership money (along with money generated from Harris Teeter's VIC card program, Publix Reward Program, and AmazonSmile) are important for covering our expenses for staff appreciation, care & concern, graduation, scholarships, and operating expenses. ("Senior Events" is self-supporting through donations from senior parents.)
