6. BWMPO/PTO Parent Night Out! 🍻

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, at mindypinto@gmail.com should you have any questions.  Hope to see you there!!

7. Weston PTO Drive to Support Ukrainian Refugees – UPDATE! 👕

Thank you to everyone who participated in the PTO’s drive to support Ukrainian refugees!  We distributed 140 free UPS shipping labels in addition to the many $15 shipping labels people chose to purchase.  Unfortunately, we have noticed that many people have not used their free labels.  As the labels were paid for, we would appreciate it if those who received a free label but have not yet used it please ship their boxes.  If you are now unable to use your free label, please let Theresa Nibi (theresanibi@gmail.com) know and email the label back to her so we can offer it to someone else.  Thank you for your consideration!
