The Weston Weekly August 27, 2021

Picture Day ~ Friday, September 3

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

Next week is the last week of the PTO’s mum sale! All order forms and payments are due no later than a week from today, on Friday, September 3rd. The orders that have been turned in so far total $1,000 (100 mums). Our goal is to sell 350 mums to reach $3,500! Keep up all the hard work! We appreciate you helping us work toward this goal! Please contact us with any questions at ptowestonelementary@gmail.com. Thank you for your support!

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”.
