The Weston Weekly October 2, 2020

Weston Families ~ As we come to the end of our first nine-weeks, I wish to send a sincere thank you. There were many obstacles to overcome with transitioning the students back into the building, but it has been rather seamless. Our PTO was able to raise $2,896.67 through our mum sale. Your generosity will go directly back to the students! The staff and I appreciate your unwavering support. Enjoy the next two weeks off and we'll see everyone back Monday, October 19! Mrs. Welch

  • Arrival: A friendly reminder that the tardy bells rings at 7:40 AM. 7:40 is the time students are expected to be inside their classroom ready to learn for the day. Students arriving at/after 7:40 will need to come in through the front office for a tardy pass.

Anti-Bullying Coloring Contest

Congratulations to Rylan F. and Natalie B. for winning the Weston Elementary Anti-Bullying Coloring Contest. Third grade students talked about how to stay safe on the internet and colored T.H.I.N.K. pictures that were related to the topic. The girls are shown here with their winning pictures.

Approximately 9 million people who should have been eligible for federal stimulus checks earlier this year never received them. While there were a variety of reasons why people did not receive the stimulus checks (homelessness, incarceration in 2018 or 2019, not having direct deposit info on file, etc.), one of the biggest reasons involved people whose income was so low they were not required to file a federal tax return. Many people with disabilities fall in that category. The IRS has reopened its Non-Filers’ Tool to allow people to enter their information in an effort to still get the $1200 stimulus checks. https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here

Individuals can enter their information, including information on children under 17 which will change the stimulus check amount, in an effort to receive their stimulus payments, and individuals must enter their information by October 15. Individuals who are homeless and individuals who are in residential or institutional settings are eligible for this stimulus. However, please understand that people who are claimed as a dependent on someone else’s taxes are NOT eligible for a stimulus check. This also affects many people with disabilities.
