*Saturday, March 4th. An Evening on Ice! Back by popular demand...Daly Rink, Newton 9:00-11:00 PM. Hockey sticks are permitted. Rink will be divided into Free Skate & Game areas. Details on WHS Bulletin Board. Sign up via WebTrac. We understand that some families have been having difficulty accessing permission slips they are attached below. Once completed, please hand in to Gretchen Gugliotta in Guidance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
*Saturday, May 13th. PROM! Marriott Long Wharf. The Prom Committee has selected "Great Gatsby" as this year's theme. An invitation design contest is underway. Available to all students. Entries due by February 27th. Guidelines available via FaceBook or by contacting any class officer.
Parents for Prom: There are many ways to be involved in creating and supporting the highlight of our students' Junior year. We are all WHS prom veterans. In April, we will email families a packet of information including timelines to help you put all the pieces together. Pieces that include ticket sales, tux rentals, and flower purchases. Another part of the evening is Opportunity Draws. Opportunity Draws are themed offerings. For example: Concert, event or sports tickets, Car Care package that may include gas card, car wash card, etc. Possibilities are endless and out-of-the-box ideas welcome. Students will be able to purchase tickets both online and at school the week prior to Prom. Winners will be selected near the end of the evening and must be present to win encouraging students to remain at Prom while also serving as fundraising for our graduation overnight. SOS!: We need parents (2-3 or 4)to lead this endeavor. Responsibilities include soliciting and coordinating donations. Please consider talking to other class parents and join forces to provide exciting groupings for our students. We are beginning to plan decor. As we identify needs, we will reach out for assistance. In the meantime, if you have thoughts to share, let us know.
As students' excitement begins (or escalates), their enthusiasm is contagious. We need families to share their time, talents and treasures!
On behalf of all our students, we thank you.
Brian, Caren & Debbie
SUCCESS! Saturday November 19, 2016, we weighed in at over 2,108 lbs. of books and food. Volunteer students, small in number but large in spirit, collected, divided and delivered books to More Than Words and Italian Home for Children. Representatives from Weston Police Department attended our weigh-in and gathered our food donations to distribute to COA food pantry. We know recipients are grateful for our support. We are proud of the Class of 2018 students' efforts and thank all the families that contributed to this campaign. We look forward to additional opportunities of community and service.
Giving Thanks to all,
Brian, Caren & Debbie
Together with Faculty Advisors, we support each year's class officers' responsibilities that include Fundraising, Social Events, and Community Service. We are writing to share activity items with you:
Throughout our 4 years at WHS, we host fundraising efforts. Proceeds from each program are deposited into our class account. All funds are ultimately used to offset the Graduation Overnight. Such an evening typically ranges from $35,000-$40,000. It is our intent to plan an extraordinary evening, at the lowest possible out-of-pocket expense as the final community event for all graduates. Honestly, we are falling short of our fundraising goals. To that end, we are looking for larger opportunities. We would like to host a "Sports Replay" event. The logistics include collecting items, pricing and selling equipment during an afternoon TBD. Such an undertaking will require more than the 3 of us, if you are interested in taking an active role or have other ideas, please email us directly.
Encourage your student to support these opportunities and/or share other ideas with officers.
PROM: The highlight of Junior year. PROM is May 13th.
We will begin detailed planning after the 1st of the year; asking for parents' to share
time and talents to help us host a spectacular evening.
Thank you for your support as we coordinate a campaign to feed minds and bodies!
