Weston Middle 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 on the first Wednesday of each month. In addition, there are several organizations that help parents contribute to the life and administration of the Middle School.
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
The Middle School PTO is a subcommittee of the Weston PTO. The MSPTO works closely with teachers to organize parent volunteers. They also organize meetings that feature speakers, panels and other presentations designed to educate parents about the middle school experience.
The Science Council is subcommittee of the Weston PTO that seeks to support the science curriculum in Weston.
The Creative Arts Council is another curricular enrichment group, which focuses on bringing performances, lecturers and artists to the schools.
