The Weston Weekly May 28, 2021

It is hard to believe this year is over. It seems like yesterday we were trying to figure out how we could bring students and staff together safely and accomplish a learning environment. I can proudly say, WE DID IT! Our doors were able to stay open 180 days. It is nothing short of amazing.

I thank each of you for supporting us every step of the way and trusting us with your child. We look forward to welcoming students back Thursday, July 29, 2021. To our third graders, we wish you the best at GIS. You will do great things! Have a wonderful summer break! ~ Mrs. Welch

Community Involvement

Summer 2021 ~ Free & Low Cost Activities

Summertime is almost here and the kids will soon be saying "I'm bored". What to do....what to do???? Take advantage of some of the free and low cost activities that are available in Greenfield and Indianapolis. Everything from free Friday night movies to walking on the Pennsy trail to visiting a museum to participating in the public library's summer reading program. All of these activities are not only fun, but can be used to keep your child's academic skills sharp. Ask questions about what they see, what they read, what they feel. Spark their imagination!

Social Work Corner~ Mrs. Miller

Thank you to community partners ---- Over the course of the school year, there were many organizations with whom I collaborated and they all offered a willing hand to help Weston students & staff. This year, I'd like to thank Otterbein United Methodist Church who has provided school supplies, food for families, special lunches and gift cards for teachers, and water bottles for the school; Culvers who donated free Concrete Mixer certificates for our character winners each month; Weston PTO who financed our STAR reward program; Journey Bags for clothing, Changing Footprints for shoes, Park Chapel Church for winter coats, and the many other businesses, churches, and families who donated school supplies for students, and helped with providing Christmas gifts to families in need. THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT WESTON STUDENT!!!!

Summer Safety

The 80's.....most of us look forward to summer weather, but it also means we need to take safety precautions. Here are some ideas for staying safe in the heat:

  • Stay in a cool, shaded area.
  • Keep yourself hydrated.
  • Wear clothing that's loose and light.
  • Don't overdo it—work, play, and exercise more lightly than usual. Protect yourself from the sun with shade and sunscreen.

Summer Clothing Needs

  • Journey Bags is a local organization that provides a week's worth of new and gently used clothing and hygiene products for children in need. If your child is in need of summer clothing, or you would like more information, please contact Tammi Caldwell at 812-473-6451.
  • Changing Footprints is a local organization that provides new and gently used shoes for families in need. Shoes are available for all ages, infant through adult.

Please contact Mrs. Miller @ Weston Elementary for further information.

Thank you to all Weston families and staff for making the 2020-2021 school year successful! We all worked hard and got through it together by each person doing their part. We are grateful to the staff for going the extra mile to allow our children to be in school for the entire school year. We appreciate all the wonderful support that families showed to staff and students. We especially want to thank Mrs. Welch for her leadership at Weston, tackling her first year as a principal during a pandemic!

Best of luck to all the 3rd graders as they begin their new school adventure when they return from break! We know you’ll be awesome!

Have a safe, happy, healthy, and fun summer, Weston families and staff! We’ll see you at the end of July!
