5. The Weston METCO Fruit Sale is Back! 100% of the proceeds raised go to help support Weston High School METCO Student Activities. In the past we have been able to assist with field trip and AP exam fees as well as host special METCO student celebrations and community-building events! We would love to expand our effort and include supporting our Global Student Travel Fund, which offers scholarships to assist METCO Students’ participation in educational travel opportunities. Your orders will help to make this possible! Just click the following link to log on to our group fruit sale website: http://freshfruitorderorg/WestonMetcoFruit. The deadline for ordering fruit with a credit card online is November 20. If you would like to pay by cash or check, please contact Nancy Fournier at 781-786-5851 or fourniern@weston.org. Thank you for your support!

Cost is $13 per person or $40 for a family. Pay in advance with MySchoolBucks or pay at the door with cash, check, or credit card. The Haunted Hospital is hosted by the WHS Class of 2025. Bring everyone in your family; there will be amusements and fun for every age! Check out the Haunted Hospital and graveyard; baby and child-friendly spaces with games for all ages; selfie props; spooky treats for sale; taco stand; and Chick-fil-A. Support the Class of 2025! Visit the event website.

7. Trick or Treat for UNICEF: A Weston Elementary tradition is collecting money on Halloween for UNICEF.  Like last year, UNICEF is not providing the orange collection boxes for children to take door-to-door. However, Weston students can still Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!  Donations can be made quickly and easily by clicking here between now and November 2 to contribute to our Weston Elementary Schools fundraising page.  Your donation will help UNICEF deliver health care and immunizations, safe water and sanitation, nutrition, education and emergency relief to millions of children around the world.  Please reach out to Stacy Gilman at stacysimon21@gmail.com with any questions.
