The BWMPO and PTO is thrilled to host a Parent Night Out in Boston.  It’s been a while, so we are excited to laugh and eat to further connect as a Weston community.  Join us on Saturday, April 30th, from 5-7pm, at the Blarney Stone in Dorchester, MA.  We are hoping for sunny skies to allow for patio seating, but will be inside otherwise.  Capacity is limited so RSVP HERE asap.  (deadline Wednesday, April 27th).  Ticket price of $25pp will cover apps and a drink ticket.  Please make payments to Venmo @bwmpo1 and include “parent night out” in the memo. Contact Mindy Wright, BWMPO Chair, should you have any questions.  Hope to see you there!!

8. Weston PTO Drive to Support Ukrainian Refugees  👕

The Weston PTO and Give Back Box have teamed up to support the over 2 million Ukrainian refugees who fled to Poland with nothing but the clothes on their backs!  It’s easy to help!  First, grab your kids, and together pack a box weighing up to 40 lbs of clothes, shoes, and blankets ONLY (in new or very good condition).  Next, get a UPS shipping label.  We have 150 FREE labels available – EMAIL HERE to request one or CLICK HERE to purchase a label for $15.  Finally, drop your box(es) off at any UPS Store.  If you need a box or box pick-up, call Theresa Nibi at (617) 519-5010.  Boxes will be shipped to Chicago and then loaded onto a container to Poland.  If you can’t ship a box or want to do more, DONATE HERE to help defray the $5,000 cost of shipping a container to Poland.  Questions?  Contact Theresa Nibi (617) 519-5010 or Stacy Simon Gilman (781) 789-5927 or go to www.givebackbox.com.
