PRESIDENT'S LETTER

_________ Winter, 2014 _________

Dear Families and Friends,

If you are not already a member, we hope you will consider joining the Weston PTO.

We support teachers in and outside of the classroom through extensive volunteering that includes organizing back to school nights, planning teacher appreciations events, chaperoning field trips and much more.

We find PhD scientists and mathematicians to work on fractals and biology experiments with our high school students and organize day-long science fairs and evening science workshops for our elementary students.

We bring in professional performing artists and artists-in-residence who work hand-in-hand with students on school-wide projects such as weavings and murals.

We help teach our children about giving back to their communities through outreach to local groups such as Bristol Lodge and the Blue Hill Boys & Girls Club.

We bring in nationally recognized speakers on important issues such as grit and resilience in children through our Parent Education series.

We keep you informed through Westword about the important information you need to know about our schools.

We support our teachers so they can do what they do best – educate our children to the highest possible standards while encouraging individual growth, creativity and a passion for learning.

The PTO is you, and we need your energy and ideas to continue to support and sustain excellence in our schools.

If you are not yet a PTO member, please email us today and join the hundreds of Weston parents who already are.  Please join – and volunteer – today.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Parkhill
Weston PTO President 2014-2015
