Top TEN News @ Weston

September 6th, 2019

1. Our Success Groups for 1st grade began this past week. Success groups are a time that we ability group our students into small groups during Reading & Math time. These groups allow us to really focus on your child’s strengths and weaknesses to ensure proper growth. If you have questions about this please contact your child’s teacher. Kindergarten will begin on Sept. 9th.

2. IDOE's literacy team has created Literacy Family Guides for each elementary grade level K-5. These guides share grade level skills and ideas for how parents can get involved in their child's education. Click here to view the Spanish translation! These can also be found on the Weston website under the Parent Resources tab.

3. Donuts with Dad breakfast! We would love to have your student and their dad, grandpa, uncle, or special friend join us for some donuts on September 13th between the hours of 6:45am and 7:30am. The cost will be $2 per person. Please RSVP to the event here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8h3w7x5 We also ask that you park in the designated spot for this event. See the attached map. The doors will open promptly at 6:45am and we ask that you say your goodbyes to your student by 7:30am so they can get to their classroom to start their day!

We are also looking for a few volunteers to help with this event. If you are interested in helping, please follow this link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508044BACA623AAFA7-donuts1
