Global Diversity Fair: Global Diversity Fair: This Thursday, January 26th from 5-7pm at Field School – the Global Diversity Fair is back! We have an incredible collection of volunteers from our community featuring booths that represent countries around the world and in person performances throughout the event. It is the first time we have done this event with all three of the elementary schools together and it is sure to be fantastic! The fair will be an open house style, and siblings are welcome. Come learn more and celebrate the global diversity represented within the Field, Country, and Woodland School communities; sample delicious foods, participate in engaging activities and demonstrations, and even bring home a souvenir of your world journey! Thank you to all of our volunteers and to Event Chair, Catalina Salebe for their incredible planning and preparation. Please reach out to Catalina at with questions. We hope to see you there!

Elementary Coding Night: The Weston PTO STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Council will be hosting a Coding Night for elementary school families in the Woodland Cafeteria and Gym on Thursday, February 9 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Earn prizes by completing various coding games and challenges!  No coding experience necessary.  Children are required to be accompanied by an adult.  More details to come as the date approaches.

The PTO STEM Council is looking for volunteers to help set-up/break-down the event and facilitate moving children through the various activity tables.  Volunteer roles will vary from “no coding experience” to “some coding experience” required.  Please sign up here if interested or email Alison King,  Mark McKnight, BJ Grattan, or Stephanie Mazitschek
