The Jr. Class Fundraiser


Please support the WHS CLASS OF 2018 (current Juniors) by purchasing a Weston spirit Bleacher Seat for $15 (navy blue with yellow W).

This navy blue folding seat cushion is made to make sitting on the bleachers more comfortable (it is great for when the bleachers are cold or wet) and its soft material acts as a good cushion to put over a stiff chair.  In addition, the back has the yellow Weston logo printed on it and also acts as a pocket.

The profits from this fundraiser go to the Student Government Class of 2018 in the High School and will be used to fund its annual student government spirit events including holiday decorations, spirit weeks, events such as Prom and so much more!
