Weston High School values and depends on parental involvement.  Student performance is profoundly influenced by parental engagement in the educational process as well as in school life.  Teachers welcome hearing from parents and are available for conferences to discuss their student’s performance.  At the same time, there are opportunities throughout the year for parents to support classroom instruction, whether as a mentor for a science class, a speaker on Career Day, or to chaperone on field trips.

Read below to learn about the organizations that involve parents in the life and administration of the high school:

Volunteer to support Class Activities

Parents are often called upon to support student class activities.  Whether it’s helping to organize the Freshman Cruise, providing decorations for the Sophomore Haunted House; assembling masks for the Junior Prom, or contributing time to the Senior post-Graduation party, you can be as involved as your time and energy allows.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The Weston High School PTO Chairs serve as a liaison between the PTO, school principal and the parent community. The High School Chair and Co-Chair work closely with the school principal.  They meet regularly to discuss school issues, coordinate school events, teacher appreciation events, and attend School Council and Parent Advisor meetings and assist with special projects as needed. This is a two-member team in which the Co-Chair shadows the Chair for a year before taking on the leadership role the following year.

 The High School PTO is a subcommittee of the Weston PTO.  The HSPTO holds monthly meetings, typically the first Thursday morning at 8 am in the Media Center.  These meetings feature speakers, panels and other presentations designed to educate parents about the high school experience.

The Science Council is subcommittee of the Weston PTO that seeks to support the science curriculum in Weston.  At the high school this may involve soliciting mentors from Weston’s scientific community, who may become Senior Internship mentors, speakers on Career Day or to classes, and bringing enrichment programs to the classroom.

The Creative Arts Council is another curricular enrichment group, which focuses on bringing performances, lecturers and artists to the schools.
