What a first week! The heatwave threw us a curveball but we made it through. It was wonderful meeting many of you at our PTO Welcome Tables on Thursday and Friday - and at our Kindergarten play date on Saturday. What a turnout! To the families and guardians new to Belmont and/or Wellington, we welcome you! We’re jumping for joy to have you in our community.
Tomorrow, Thursday September 14 from 5pm-7pm, join us on the Wellington Field (the grass next to the blue playground) for our Fall Back to School Picnic! This is a beloved Wellington community event and a wonderful way to meet other students and families. Pack a picnic or order from the Food Trucks; Trolley Dogs and Chubby Chickpea will be there!
Remember to mark your calendars! Fall ASE Registration opens on Monday, September 18 at 7 am. Please discuss class choices with your children so you’re prepared for registration. We have an exciting line up for this first term!
2022 Fun Run participants warm up!
The Wellington library relies on volunteers to help out throughout the year. We are doing sign-ups differently this year, so please read below before signing up.

Lucy Seche, PTO Fundraising VP, for organizing our first Wellington back-to-school supply kit fundraiser. Launching anything new is never an easy task. Lucy did a fantastic job organizing many moving parts to ensure our students and teachers received their supply kits on the first day of school. Thank you to the Wellington community for participating in the pilot program!
The PTO runs on our volunteer engine and we have many opportunities throughout the year for families and guardians to participate and support our students. The best place to start is by completing our PTO Volunteer Interest form - here.
We will also post open positions and volunteer opportunities here in our Whaley Weekly, starting with:
Important note to all volunteers: Everyone will receive a CORI form (one per household - feel free to make a copy) in your Communications Folder. If you can support the PTO and would like to volunteer, CORI forms are required for every parent volunteer. You must bring the completed form and a form of ID to the Wellington office to complete the process. CORIs are valid for three years! We highly recommend you get these completed early in the school year.
