The third graders will make their way through the school with the hallways lined with the Country School staff and student body cheering them on. They will continue onto the blacktop by the playground, where families will gather to clap and cheer for them. Parking will be tricky between early dismissal and the 5th-grade parade – please plan accordingly.
-3rd Grade Graduation Pool Party!
Please join us at the Weston Memorial Pool (6 Alphabet Lane, Weston) following the Country School Graduation Clap Out on June 21st to celebrate our graduates! The pool opens at 11:30am. We will have a specific area reserved for 3rd graders and their families to mingle and enjoy pizza, drinks and popsicles. If you feel inclined to contribute money to the provided refreshments, please Venmo Erika McAuliffe @erika-mcauliffe and reference the 3rd-grade pool party.
Memorial Pool Fees: If you have a pool badge entry is free. If you do not have a pool badge, entry is $10/person (up to a max of $30 per family). Thank you to the Third Grade Room Parents for organizing this fantastic event!

We will have Lost & Found items outside for families to access during the CS All-School Picnic and Clap Out. The items will be outside the CS Gym on the blacktop, overlooking the CS playground. All remaining items will be donated.
5. BWMPO John Hudson Scholarship Fund for the class of 2023 Update!
BWMPO is so excited to partner with Dr. Henry, award-winning poet and English teacher at Weston High School. He has generously agreed to donate 50% of the pre-sale proceeds of his third book to the John Hudson Scholarship Fund for the class of 2023. We have a one-month window to share the link with everyone we know and purchase multiple copies of Dr. Henry’s book. It will make a great holiday or birthday gift. Please share with your networks and purchase the book!
