What does the Fun Run Fund? ENRICHMENT! We are at 48% of our goal!The Fun Run and other PTO events fund enrichment programs within our classrooms, such as: Acton Discovery Museum (K-3), Tanglewood Marionettes (K - 4), Mass Audubon Pollinators, authors, storytelling, and musical guests. We are at 48% of our goal ($9,635 of $20,000), with about a week to go!
Here's how you can help us reach our goal:
On Monday, October 16th at 7pm we invite you to join our virtual PTO board meeting for a special presentation from Superintendent Jill Geiser to learn more about the emerging needs for our upcoming budget season. Following the presentation, we will have Q&A and open discussion with Superintendent Geiser. We encourage the community to join if you can and stay informed as we learn about our town and school funding. Join using this Google Meet: https://meet.google.com/gkb-jzgv-cfb

And to Jess Morgan, our Hospitality Coordinator, for organizing our first teacher appreciation day last Friday as part of our Monthly Acts of Gratitude for the Wellington teachers and staff!
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.
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.
