Please Join or Renew Your Weston PTO Membership

It’s time for the Weston PTO’s annual membership drive! If you have a child in the Weston Public Schools, please join or renew your Weston PTO membership for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year!  Our goal is 100% participation by all of our families! Don’t forget to update your contact information when you join so our directory is accurate (but please DO NOT update your children’s grades – that will take place automatically later this summer).  You can secure an annual PTO membership for your family here.

WHO WE ARE

The Weston PTO is an all-volunteer, parent-run, non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the education of our children and fostering community within our schools. We keep parents connected and engaged by facilitating a closer relationship between the schools and home and by serving as a communication link between the two.  

HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS THE PTO DELIVERS

  • We support educational programs spanning all grades K-12 and coordinate visits by select authors, artists and performers, like the Tanglewood Marionettes and authors Kate Messner and Jennifer De Leon.
  • We sponsor parent education events with guest speakers representing various disciplines, like Dr. Jill Walsh on helping our children establish technology boundaries.
  • We coordinate back-to-school parent socials each fall helping to build important grade-level parent connections.
  • We organize community outreach drives supporting local charities, like Bristol Lodge and the Lincoln-Weston Food Pantry, while offering kids and families the opportunity to engage in social responsibility and philanthropy.
  • We host regularly scheduled parent/principal coffees to build and maintain important connections with school leadership.
  • We organize social events for parents and children like the Halloween trunk-or-treat, elementary schools drive-in movie night, Middle School art show, and High School graduation events.
  • We sponsor faculty/staff appreciation events throughout the year at each school.
  • Our parent volunteers who serve as school chairs, class parent advisors and room parents create a critical liaison between the PTO, parents, teachers and school leadership.

BENEFITS OF PTO MEMBERSHIP

The annual membership fee is $75 per family. By purchasing it, you support the many ways the PTO engages with our community. Your membership also:

  • Keeps you informed through a subscription to the PTO’s Westword weekly electronic newsletter listing consolidated school and community activities and events.
  • Enables you to purchase a printed version of the PTO school directory for $15 each.

IF YOU’D LIKE TO GET INVOLVED…

Please let us know! There are many opportunities, and we welcome short and longer-term commitments. Whether it’s helping to organize a class event, bringing performers, artists and authors to our schools, volunteering at a STEM Fair, welcoming new families to the community, helping our Green Team’s sustainability programs, our website and communications team, or serving as a school chair, we have a place for you!
