Dear P.A.W.S. Families,


Thank you for a PAWSome first week of school!  It was wonderful to welcome our P.A.W.S. families during the Orientation and Visit Days last week and to see the children so excited to come to school this week! P.A.W.S. is humming with students learning!

Tea with ‘Becca (Survey)

For the first Tea with ‘Becca, on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 9:00 a.m., we will welcome the Wellesley PAC.  From the PAC Website: The Wellesley Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of parents, and caregivers of children with disabilities from pre-school to age 22 attending Wellesley public schools and private school settings. The purpose of the PAC is to support families whose children receive special education services. We work with the Wellesley Public School Administrators and town committees to help kids on Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) have a positive learning experience. Wellesley PAC provides general information through meetings, lectures and online resources. We support each other by offering our ideas and guidance. 


Additionally, we would like to hear from you! Please complete this brief survey to let us know what topics you would like us to bring to the Tea with ‘Becca series each month.


Resources to Share

Sometimes we find resources that are useful and share them, in case they might be helpful to our families.  Feel free to take a look to see if any of these resources are helpful to you.

Thank you to our PTO Board Members Elizabeth Nelson, Nicole Martinez, and Katherine Hala for their help and support in kicking of the year with enthusiasm and dedication to our amazing school!  If you are not getting weekly updates from the PTO, please be sure to email  Also reach out, if you would like to help with the PTO.  Everyone is welcome!

Please join us for the first PTO meeting of the year on Friday, September 13 at 9:00am in the PAWS teacher’s room.

Last year, for CPK Day, one parent had an idea to gather at California Pizza Kitchen in Wellesley, for lunch with some of the other parents in the class.  This sounded like a fun way to get to know the parents in her child’s class, and to support PAWS, too!  Bring in this flyer when you dine in or take out, to give 10% of your bill to PAWS!


Thank you for your support! Your positive participation, partnership, and care helps to make P.A.W.S. its very best!
