WHS as a part of the community

Students performing community service is one way that WHS engages in our town, but the school is an important member of the Town of Weston in other ways as well.  
 
The WHS community so appreciates the support of voters and private donors who have funded important facility improvements over the years.  From the turf fields to the new Science Wing, we now enjoy the highest quality facilities to support our educational mission.  At the same time, we have spaces that are accessed by town organizations and private groups on a regular basis.

This past year, WHS was a focal point for the largest events of the town's celebration of its tercentennial. The Weston300 Field Day took over the campus on Saturday, June 1, 2013. Children could “touch a truck” and appreciate antique cars in the HS parking lot; visitors enjoyed games, entertainment and amusements on the tennis courts and athletic fields; a fishing demonstration and clinic was held at the pond; art and history were on display in the Science Wing; a film festival was screened in the auditorium; and alumni gathered in the Library.  Of course the football field was the site of the firework display, accompanied by music performed by the WHS orchestra.
 
Although this was a special year, the town relies on our spaces every year.  Weston Youth Basketball, Soccer, Lacrosse; and Little League baseball and softball use the gym and fields for pre-season warm up, practice and games; Weston Dad’s camped out with their children on the fields; residents host charity events such as the Marathon Sports Charity Road Race, Special Olympics Basketball Tournament, Relay for Life and Twilight Track Meet on our courts and fields; Weston Police host area exams and the Community Chorus rehearses in HS classrooms. Proudly, WHS hosts the most important event of the year: Town Meeting (this year beginning Monday, May 12, 2014).
 
Students plan and host many events that have become annual highlights for townspeople.  Extra-curricular activities teach students important leadership and organizational skills that will benefit them well once they leave WHS.  The annual Spring Fling coming up on Saturday, May 3, is one example.  This event requires extensive organization on the part of the WHS Student Council.  Many WHS clubs are involved in providing the many activities that will entertain members of our community.  While proceeds benefit a selected charitable organization, their community service goes beyond charity.  Begun decades ago, Spring Fling has become a much anticipated event among the town’s younger set, providing a way to celebrate the sun and open space of our Town Green and to enjoy multi-generational interactions with family, friends and neighbors.  Other community oriented events include Pumpkin Fest on the Town Green in the fall and the choral performances at Regis College in the winter.
 
Finally, the community is always welcome to attend school events and many take advantage of the sports and art events.  The Theater Company’s spring musical is a particular favorite for theater lovers who want conveniently located, quality performances at family-friendly prices. Don’t miss this year’s production of Ragtime, the High School version, May 8-10.  
 
Whether it’s outside or inside, we look forward to seeing you!
