Hello Weston Families,
 
I hope the start of the school year has been a success for your family.  The reason for my email is to inform you of the Weston Boosters fundraising efforts that are beginning for the 2014/15 school year.  As you may or may not know no school sponsored athletic programs fundraise individually and rely on the Weston Boosters to fulfill their fundraising needs unlike many of our neighboring communities. Additionally, most of these same communities require families to pay an athletic user fee, upwards of $300 per sport in many cases, something Weston does not require. The Weston Boosters through their fundraising efforts contribute to the needs of every Weston High School and Weston Middle School athletic team as well as provide assistance to Weston elementary physical education teachers by assisting with additional athletic equipment.
 
With 58% of the Weston High School student body and over 60% of the Weston Middle School student body participating in athletics this fall your generous financial support will help provide our student-athletes with a wide range of assistance including essential financial scholarships, sports equipment, team uniforms, coaching assistance tools, and playing field equipment. The need for this support continues to grow, and the benefit of this support is seen and experienced by most every student at WHS, WMS and the Weston Elementary Schools.
 
The Weston Boosters are an integral part of Weston Athletics. We hope that every Weston family can contribute to this year's fundraising efforts and help us continue to provide for our athletic programs. Please feel free to click here to make your tax-deductible donation online today.
 
Thank you for your time and continued support of Weston Boosters.
 
Sincerely, 
 
 
Michael McGrath

First Annual
W-Day Challenge
Saturday, September 27, 2014, 1-9pm
Weston High School
 
Sox vs. Yankees, Bruins vs. Canadians, Patriots vs. Jets, Celtics vs. Lakers, Weston vs. Wayland. These are called deep rooted rivalries.  For the past 80 years the Weston Wildcats and Wayland Warriors have been battling on the sports fields.  Two suburban towns located just five miles apart share a fanatical pride in the sports teams that represent their town.  On Saturday, September 27th these two communities will again come together in the first annual W-Day Challenge.
 
Over the summer months arrangements were made to set a day aside where each school's fall sports teams would compete. Each of the day's winning teams will receive points and the school at the end of the evening with the most points will be awarded the W-Day Challenge Bucket. This bucket will stay with the winning school until the next W-Day Challenge. 
 
There is much more to this day than just a handful of games. The hope is that not only will W-Day enhance the rivalry between the two schools athletically, but will bring the two communities closer together.  There will be a fall captains cookout on Friday evening prior to the start of the boys soccer game at 7:30pm.  During halftime these same captains will be introduced by sport walking together to mid-field. Additionally, in an effort to give back there will be large bins throughout the Weston campus where teams, spectators, etc., can drop off used sporting goods. All collected items will be divided and sent to the charity of choice for each school. Both schools hope this becomes a yearly tradition.  
 
This year’s W-Day Challenge will be located on the Weston High School Campus on Saturday, September 27th beginning at 1pm (please see below for a full schedule). Come enjoy a fun filled day that will include great high school athletic compaction, food, music and much more.
