As announced previously, all Weston Memorial Day fundraisers and festivities have been cancelled this year. It was a decision that was not made lightly. The impact of this decision on our PTO is a financial one. Historically, this event raised on average $17,000 for the PTO to add to its philanthropy fund. We hope that you will consider supporting new and old fundraising efforts initiated by our PTO in the months to come to help make up this loss. If you have fundraising ideas or are interested in getting involved in any of our existing works, please reach out to me or any of our board members.
Enjoy what is turning out to be a beautiful month of May.
With warm regards,
Dear Teachers and Staff,
The PTO and the Hospitality committee are so sorry that we will not be able to celebrate you all with an end of the year luncheon. It is truly one of our favorite events of the year and we will miss not being able to serve YOU ALL for a change. Please know we are all grateful for your hard work and the time you put into teaching, mentoring, protecting, engaging and motivating our children. We really do appreciate every one that works at Weston High School!
In the meantime we will keep our fingers crossed that there will be some kind of opening in the Fall and that we will be able to provide you with a luncheon at back to school. When you do return you will also find a gift card to Peter’s Market in your mailboxes. We know it is not the same but we wanted to do a small something for you this spring because we do appreciate you!
