There are still some open positions on the HES PTO Board for 2020-21!
If you are interested in taking any of them up, please complete the nomination form HERE.
You can also contact our President, Nicole Copans, at
, or the Chair of the Nominating Committee, Livia Berardinelli, at
. They will happily put you in touch with someone who has done the role before, who can give you more information on what it involves!
The Vice President is responsible for all duties of the President in her absence, and provides any help needed throughout the year. The VP also provides tours of the school, chairs the Long-Range Planning Committee, and is responsible for HES PTO sponsored programs.
A great way to get closely involved in all the PTO does! Anyone who is good with numbers can do it, and lots of support will be provided. We are open to different or new ways of doing this role, too, including splitting it between two people.
BOARD OF EDUCATION REPRESENTATIVE
The BOE Rep attends BOE meetings, and reports back to PTO members on proceedings – for example, by producing brief written summaries for inclusion in The Buzz. A great way to keep up with all important developments in relation to our schools! Attendance at the BOE meetings is currently shared between HES and WIS.
MEMORIAL DAY FAIR CO-CHAIR
The HES Memorial Day Fair Co-Chair runs this major PTO fundraiser – and the highlight of the town’s year! – jointly with WIS PTO representatives. This would be a great job for two friends to do together.
The Yearbook Chair does is in charge of compiling, selling and distributing the School Yearbook. A great chance for someone to be creative, and be responsible for creating a memento our children will always treasure!
STAFF APPRECIATION CHAIR
The Staff Appreciation Chair is responsible for all staff appreciation events.
ELC GRADE CHAIR
The ELC Grade Chair is responsible for all their respective PTO-sponsored grade and class activities/needs, such as room parents, class lists, field days, grade trips, etc.
The Wall Calendar Chair oversees the creation and distribution of that essential Weston parent item - the Weston Public Schools Calendar! This is a great position for someone with an eye for detail and design, and is a big fundraiser for HES PTO. It would also be ideal for two people to do together. It again requires work leading up to and at the start of the school year.
