Top TEN News @ Weston

December 13, 2019

1. December 16-20 we will have some building wide Christmas celebrations. Our theme this year is It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas. See the flyer below for specific spirit days. Please contact our office if you do not want your child to participate. We are also collecting food next week to make a Weston donation to our local food pantry.

2. If you would like for your child to receive a weekly BackSack from Gleaners, please contact Mrs. Miller, Weston’s School Social Worker. BackSacks contain shelf-stable foods that can be used during the weekends.

3. Families in need of Christmas assistance who have not yet submitted an information sheet, should contact Mrs. Miller ASAP. Her email is temiller@gcsc.k12.in.us or she may be reached at school, 317-462-1492.

4. With the holidays approaching, some parents have asked what teachers would enjoy receiving as gifts. While all of our teachers enjoy being with our children each day and do not expect gifts at the holidays, we asked Santa what the teachers had asked for this Christmas. We’re sending home a wishlist in case any parents would like to help Santa with his list. See the lists below in the download section.

We wish you a safe and wonderful holiday season!
