The Westview School believes that the involvement of parents and caregivers is crucial to the educational process. All parents in the school are members of People of Westview (POW). There is no membership fee. POW provides support for the school throughout the year. They are an active part of The Westview School and assist in many ways to support the mission of the school. 

Families are encouraged to participate in POW by attending meetings and social events, and volunteering as their skills and opportunity allow. Parents are also given the opportunity to volunteer on many POW committees including membership, supplies, hospitality, teacher appreciation, yearbook, Family Fun Day and more. If you would like to participate on a committee, please contact Emily Watts, POW president by email at

One Thursday per month is set aside for POW meetings. These are held immediately following morning carpool. All parents are encouraged to attend. Monthly meetings are a great opportunity to connect with other parents and to learn about ways POW is currently supporting the school. It is an open and friendly atmosphere where parents can connect with other Westview families. Younger siblings are welcome.

“Being a member of the POW is always having someone by your side that shares in your child’s triumphs. It’s having another momma that is only a phone call away during those difficult moments of being a parent to a child with different abilities. The POW is a support system unlike any other. It is one more blessing in this miraculous, challenging journey to remind us that we don’t have to go through this alone.”

Stefanie Rugaard, POW President 2023-2024
