      Principal's Welcome Message - Ms. Meghan Ward

      August 30, 2022

      Dear Students, Staff and Parents:

      I am so thrilled to be here and have had such a busy summer getting the lay of the land and meeting all of the wonderful people who contribute to the success of students at Weston High School. The warm welcome I have received is such a positive reflection of all this community has to offer and the value Weston places on the high school experience. Weston has maintained a tradition of excellence throughout its history. As a graduate of a rival SWC high school I know well the reputation of WHS and will endeavor to do all that I can to maintain traditions while propelling us into the future and becoming better than ever.

      As we embark on a new school year it is important for all of us to remember what it means to be a True Trojan. We at WHS will expect you to Team Up With Your School, Respect One Another, Own Your Actions, Join Your Community, Act With Integrity and Notice the World Around You. These principles are the foundation of our daily interactions with each other. There is no doubt that aspects of high school will continue to be challenging. Your commitment to these core principles will help you persevere during tough times and allow all of us to enjoy all that WHS has to offer. Thank you for your continued commitment to being a True Trojan!

      I am happy to be here and look forward to meeting each and every one of you during the opening days of school. I’m hoping you are feeling refreshed this summer and are excited to start another school year. Everyone always says high school goes by in a flash…try not to get caught up in what others are doing, stay true to yourself and be curious! I assure you that in the end what matters most is making healthy decisions that lead to your own happiness. See you soon!

      Kindly,

      Ms. Ward
