Welcome Back

Dear Parents,

It is with great honor and pleasure that I begin this school year as the new superintendent for Athena-Weston Schools. It is my professional commitment to partner with community members, staff, parents, and students to develop a safe and welcoming school environment.  I maintain an open door policy and am excited to become a partner in the Athena-Weston school community.

School begins on August 25 and we will be welcoming an estimated 567 students through the doors of our three buildings; Athena Elementary (grades K-3), Weston Middle School (grades 4-8) and Weston McEwen High School (grades 9-12).

As we begin this academic year, I invite parents, staff and students to ponder the following question:

What do I hope for this school year? (for myself, my students, my children)

Here are some of my hopes...

I hope that every student and staff member is excited to come to school each day.
I hope that every student discovers that they belong and are cared for.

I hope that every family understands how valued they are as our partners.
I hope that I end each day having made a difference in the life of a child.

We thank you for sharing your children with us and welcome you as we celebrate and work together for a successful school year!

Yours for Kids,
Laure Quaresma, Superintendent

AWSD - Results of Testing for Lead in Water

The Athena-Weston School District conducted comprehensive lead testing to ensure safe drinking water for our students and staff.  The report findings identified three sources indicating levels that needed additional testing and potential action.  Concerning these results, immediate action was taken as follows:

- Removed unused locker room fountain at Athena Elementary

- Replaced sink faucet in the Weston Kitchen and re-tested

- Replaced and retested sink faucet in concession stand at Weston-McEwen High School

All three identified testing sites have been addressed and re-tested.

I would like to commend our Facilities team for their proactive attention and keeping the safety of our students the highest priority. 

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 541-566-3581.

Yours for Kids, Laure Quaresma

2016 Bond Passes

The Athena-Weston School District would like to thank our communities for their support of the 2016 School Bond!

Our bond measure would not have passed without the support of parents, community members, both employee associations, and the Citizens for Athena-Weston Schools Committee.

Over the next couple of years, the District will complete the projects outlined in the bond measure. The District will also create an oversight committee to ensure the $8,000,000 is spent on the proposed projects approved by voters. This committee will also be responsible for giving regular reports to the Board of Directors and the citizens of Athena and Weston. Keep up to date with bond progress via the 2016 Bond Information page on this website.

From the superintendent:

I am very thankful the voters in Weston and Athena supported our bond measure. With 77% of the voters supporting our bond measure, it is clear community members take great pride in supporting our students, our schools and our communities. I would like to commend the Board of Director for their courage to place our bond measure on the May ballot to address the needs of the District.

Way To Go TigerScots !!!

Interim Superintendent
