Click “sign-in” in the upper right-hand corner of the event website to register as a non-attendee. This will allow you to bid remotely on silent auction items and/or be assigned a proxy bidder for live items. Bidding opens for the silent auction on Monday, September 26, at 10am.
Parents Night Out! Book your babysitters! Save the date to come gather with fellow Woodland parents at our upcoming Parent Community Night Out – Wednesday, October 19th from 6-9pm at Lookout Farm in Natick. $25pp will go towards appetizers and drink tickets. Thank you to the Mofenson Family for hosting! Funding available to cover ticket prices if needed – please reach out to Emily Malenfant.
Woodland School Council Opening: Woodland School has 1 open seat for a 2 year term open for School Council and we need your help! This is an important and exciting opportunity for parents to get involved! Every public school in the state is required by law to have a School Council made up of various representatives, including elected parents to assist in adopting educational goals for the school that are consistent with local educational policies and statewide student performance standards, identifying the educational needs of students attending the school, reviewing the annual school building budget, and formulating a school improvement plan. The school council meets several times during the school year as a group to discuss these topics.
If you are interested in running for School Council, please send a candidate statement to Meghan Covington – firstname.lastname@example.org by October 4. In your candidate statement please include information such as:
Where your children are in school
Other volunteer commitments
Other work experience
Other community involvements
Why you are interested in School Council and what contribution you can make
School Council Elections will run from October 11th to October 14th.
Woodland Website: In addition to the Woodlandwolves instagram, Woodland School also has its own website! For lunch menus, updates and schedules, this is a great resource. https://www.westonschools.org/woodland/
Weston Elementary Tee Shirts: This year, the PTO is selling Weston Elementary tee-shirts that bring together all three elementary schools, with a map of Case Campus on the back. They are heather grey, and sizes are unisex (they do run slightly small). We have both youth and adult sizes available (except we are sold out of youth small and have limited youth mediums remaining). The cost is $25 per shirt, and you can order them here. Please Venmo @Jessica-Grasshoff or email email@example.com for other payment options.
If you haven’t already, don’t forget to join or renew your PTO membership. PTO members have access to the online directory through Membership Toolkit. There’s also a Membership Toolkit app that you can download to your device for access on the go.
Have a great week!
Meghan Covington & Emily Malenfant
