Attention parents, Weston middle school will have parent teacher conferences the week of Oct 21st. You should receive a letter or a phone call if teachers need to schedule a conference with you about your child's academic progress.

The Helix Middle School will be hosting a Halloween dance for students in grades 6-8th grade on October 25th from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Don’t forget to dress up!
We will have a signup sheet for the dance on the front counter in the office. Please take a permission slip from the red hanging file at the office. The cut off to sign up for the dance will be Wednesday, October 23rd. You will need to be eligible with grades and behavior, meaning you need to be passing all subjects, and you cannot have any major referrals. We will be pulling grades on October 24th to see if you are eligible to go. The cost is $1 if you wear a costume and $2 if you do not, paid at the door.
The bus will arrive in Weston at 6:20 p.m. and will depart at 6:30 p.m. The bus will arrive in Athena to pick up students at 6:35 p.m. and will depart at 6:40 p.m.
After the dance, the bus will drop students off in Athena at 10:30 p.m. and will drop off in Weston at 10:40 p.m. Students MUST RIDE THE BUS UNLESS an activity release form is turned into the office by October 24th. Previously signed athletic release forms will not be accepted. A new release form is needed for the dance.
We will need four parents to chaperone, so please let parents know to contact the office and let us know if they are interested. If we do not have chaperones, our students will not be able to attend.
The annual Weston Potato Show is scheduled for Saturday, October 26th. At the show, the Weston Middle School Parent Group conducts a raffle and helps support the running Bingo game by selling Bingo cards.
This event serves as the main fundraiser for the WMS Parent Group. The Parent Group supports the school in many ways such as funding Student of the Month lunches, assisting to bring assemblies such as OMSI to the school, helping with special requests of teachers, and continuing to make upgrades to the library.
If you can help, please sign up! It is a fun way to spend a Saturday!
