Woodland School Council Volunteer Position
We have one opening on the Woodland School Council for a parent representative.  No experience needed.  The Council (a combination of principal, parents, PTO and teachers/staff) meet once per month via zoom to support educational goals, review annual school building budget and formulate a school improvement plan.  If interested, please contact Courtney Farkas at or Meghan Covington at by October 8.  School Council elections will run from October 12-15. 

Weston PTO Creative Arts Volunteer

Weston PTO is looking for new members to join the Creative Arts Committee. We bring professional performing artists and authors to the students of Weston.  Programs are funded through the generosity of WEEFC and the Weston PTO.  Members collaborate with teachers and administrators to select performing artists and authors that support and enhance curriculum, as well as provide enriching art experiences.  There are different levels of engagement and volunteers should expect to commit between 2-5 hours per month as a committee member. Responsibilities include attending monthly meetings to share ideas and resources, attending previews of performers at local schools and showcases, and acting as liaison to Weston schools to book artists.  Please contact Heidi Estrada ( for more information.
