We enjoyed seeing many of you at our Back to School Picnic last week. The sun came out and so did the community! What a great way to kick-off the year.
Wellington’s Curriculum Night is Thursday September 28th from 6:30pm-8pm. The PTO is organizing a Parent/Guardian Night Out following the school event. Join us at Olespana Whiskey & Tapas at 645 Mt Auburn St in Watertown immediately following curriculum night. We look forward to mingling without the kiddos and hope to see you there!
School Picture Day is Friday, September 22 for K-4 students.
What does the Fun Run fund? FIELD TRIPS! We are at 10% of Goal!
We believe families should not have to fund field trips out of pocket, so the PTO supports field trips for all students: Habitat (Kindergarten), Acton Discovery Museum (1st Grade), Museum of Science (2nd grade), Plimoth Patuxet Museum and Boston Tea Party Museum (3rd grade), Harvard Museum of Natural History and Museum of Science (4th grade). The Fun Run on October 13th is our most anticipated event and biggest fundraiser for our school community, and we are off to a great start, already at $2000 or 10% of our goal, with 10% of students registered!
Library Volunteer Sign-ups
The Wellington library relies on volunteers to help throughout the year. To run smoothly, we aim to have 4 primary volunteers. Many Kindergarten and Third Grade classes are still in need. If you have time approximately once per month, please consider signing up. Here are the sign-up links for each grade / class:
If you have questions or want more information, please reach out to our PTO Library Volunteer Coordinators: Erin Jones, Amy Heuer and Lara Lind (email@example.com).
Registration was bumpy on Monday. Our third party vendor has never experienced a surge of this much demand. They implemented a bunch of speed improvements over the summer, but these improvements were not enough to handle the traffic. We apologize and are equally frustrated. We are working with our developers to make sure that this issue doesn't happen again. We appreciate your patience. Thanks for your understanding.
There are still spots available for the Fall Session! Register today!

Jas Kaur and Maggie Croy, the PTO’s VPs of Community Events for organizing our fabulous Back to School Picnic Night! The sunshine brought us together and it was a great time reuniting with families as we kicked off the new school year. Thank you, Jas and Maggie for a great evening - and thanks Wellington for joining us!
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.
Here are our current open positions and volunteer opportunities::
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.
