The Weston Weekly September 3, 2021

Happy Labor Day! We hope you enjoy your long weekend. We will see everyone back at school on Tuesday, September 7. Always make sure to scroll through the entire newsletter. There are many announcements & great things happening in the community that your student can take part in! A Homecoming spirit week is also coming up with a Smencil sale. Please see below!

COVID - 19 Update

Homecoming 2021 ~ September 13

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.

Sports, Clubs & Community Involvement

Kindergarten and new students to Weston should have received their card this week. Returning Weston students received their NASA card last year.

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

The classrooms just finished their bully lessons. Below is some additional information for families.

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”.
