Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO)

Upcoming PTO Events:

Dine-to-Donate Get dinner for you and your family at Hometown Classic Pizza on Monday, October 25th to support the PTO through this dine-to-donate! A portion of the restaurant’s proceeds from 4-9 p.m. will go to our PTO. You do not need a flyer with you to have your order count!

Holiday Festivals. As we are approaching the holiday season when the PTO would normally be hosting events such as the Halloween Festival this month and Donuts with Santa in December, we wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that unfortunately, we will not be hosting those events this year. Our Covid restrictions are very similar to last year so we will not be holding our in-person festivals/events. We know many children (and adults!) look forward to joining us for these fun times and we are sorry to not be able to celebrate with you this year! We hope to continue these in a future school year. Thank you for everyone’s understanding as we work to keep all of our staff and students, and their families, healthy!

The Weston PTO would like to wish the following wonderful Weston staff member a very happy birthday!
