Taking a break from merchandise Fundraisers?  You are welcome to donate without purchasing an item during several of our fundraisers.  

During a fundraiser, simply select the option to decline an item but donate a dollar amount and the PAC will receive funds through Cheddar Up.  We do recommend the e-check option over a credit card due to a lower transaction cost.  There is also the option to donate via physical check.  Simply drop off checks made out to the Shawsheen-West PAC at the front office of either school.


There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year.  For events where volunteers are in direct contact with the students, a CORI form must be on record.  These last 3 years and are valid in all of the Wilmington schools.  See the front office at Shawsheen or West with your license to fill out a form.

West School Store

Parents of students at the West Intermediate School have the opportunity to help on Fridays at the School Store.  Please email the PAC with any questions or to get involved.


While the parent volunteers are managed by the schools directly, we are happy to help spread the word and answer questions about volunteering for lunch and/or recess.
