We're celebrating 50 Years as TigerScots! In 1973, the Athena and Weston schools embarked on a trial merger of the junior high and high school systems, bringing two close rivals together. Grades seven, eight, and nine were taught in Weston, while grades ten, eleven, and twelve were taught in Athena. The merger resulted in the formation of the Weston-McEwen Tigers and Scots. This experimental merger was closely watched statewide, as it offered a potential solution to the financial challenges faced by other small schools. The positive attitude of the students played a significant role in the merger's success. Faculty found the transition smoother than anticipated, partly due to the students' cooperative approach. The collaboration between the parents and citizens of both towns was crucial to the merger's success. Students benefited from new additions such as a student lounge and a hot lunch program. The larger student population allowed for increased competition, individual activities, and club involvement. The merged school became one of the larger institutions in its league, presenting more opportunities for curriculum enhancement and student engagement. With the beginning of the 23-24 school year, we want to highlight this milestone. The AWSD is proud of our 50 years of cooperation and growth. Thanks for being a part of our community!

Welcome to Mrs. Moore's Art Classes at Weston Middle School, where creativity is in full bloom! Our students have been busy this spring, painting watercolor bookmarks just in time for Mother's Day. Our ceramic tile projects just got fired in the kiln and we're sharing the results. Take a stroll down our hallway and you'll see a dazzling display of Foil Repousse and "jeweled bugs" artwork, with pastels and markers adding pops of color. And don't miss the wire sculpture figures created during a visit from artist Emily from The Studio Pendleton. We're so proud of the hard work and dedication our students put into their art, and we can't wait to see what they create next. Thank you for supporting our art program at Weston Middle School! https://youtu.be/8OeCVTC2Kuo #WestonMiddleSchool #athenaweston #AWSD #artclass

Thank you to everyone who came out in support of the basketball games, and for the exciting return of the Pipe and Drum show! — About the Pipe & Drum performance: This school tradition, which began in 1950, showcases the talents of our students and celebrates the local ties to Scottish heritage. Weston-McEwen High School Vice Principal Morgan Rauch noted, “We are excited to have our current students perform our iconic halftime show again. This legacy connects our students to each of the generations over the past 70 years.” This year's show, built around the iconic song "Amazing Grace," is dedicated to our First Responders and the medical community who bravely serve the area. The show featured performances by our bagpipers, highland dancers, and a new section of pipers. #tigerscots #athenaweston
