The Weston Weekly August 20, 2021

Happy Friday! Good luck to our Cougars this evening. They have their first home football game this evening against Plainfield. Our PTO mum sale continues! Please help spread the word. All proceeds go right back to the students and staff to enhance learning.

Food Service Update ~

As you may know, food manufacturers and distributors are experiencing major shortages in labor and food production related to COVID-19, which is affecting our active menu to varying degrees. It's always our hope to stick as close to the planned menu as possible. Although our breakfast and lunch menus at GC are always subject to change, these challenges facing our food manufacturers are causing us to choose alternative items we can get in stock.

Mum Sale Fundraiser

Happy Friday, Weston Families! This school year’s PTO Mum Sale is going on now! Your child has brought home a packet that includes a flyer with information, an order form, an envelope to return the order form and payment in, and a sheet of pickup reminders for you to give to anyone that buys mums from you. You can contact us with any questions at ptowestonelementary@gmail.com. Thank you for your support! We appreciate you!

Sports, Clubs & Community Involvement

Riley Festival

The Riley Festival is a little over a month away. There are many contests and events your child may participate in. Please click this link to learn about these opportunities.

Social Work Corner ~ Mrs. Miller

Each month at Weston Elementary, we highlight a different character trait. Students learn about the trait through morning announcements, activities, and role modeling throughout the building. As we talk about teamwork during August, we will also highlight associated characteristics involved, such as ways to be a good communicator, collaboration with others, a willingness to share new ideas, being open to feedback, and demonstrating initiative. Your child will internalize these characteristics when they are also reinforced at home. You might share a compliment such as “I liked how you looked at me while we were talking” OR “You really showed teamwork when we were working together to fix your bike”.

Shoes & Clothing ~ Journey Bags is a community organization that provides free new and gently used clothing for children in need. A week’s worth of clothing & underwear is provided, as are some hygiene products. Families may contact Tammy Caldwell at 812-473-6451 or Tcaldwell631@gmail.com

If you are in need of school supplies for your child(ren), please contact Mrs. Terry Miller @ Weston Elementary. She will gather needed supplies for your child and get them to your child on the first day of school. Mrs. Miller’s email address is temiller@gcsc.k12.in.us. Please indicate your child(ren)’s name and grade level in the email.
