The Annual Back to School Family Cookout

Hope you joined us at the September 24th cookout at Happy Hollow School. Rain Forest Reptiles shared their fabulous animals. Games like tug of war and 3-legged/bag races challenged our participants, face/henna painting, craft table, basketball, a sprinkler and a delicious grilled lunch featuring a cake celebrating Wayland's 50th year as a METCO town was enjoyed by all.
Pictures coming!  

This event was sponsored by The Village Bank, the Wayland PTO and
the Boston Parent Council.

The Metropolitan Council For Educational Opportunity (METCO) was founded in 1966. It is a state funded, voluntary educational desegregation program designed to eliminate racial imbalance through the busing of children from Boston, MA and Springfield, MA to suburban public schools in the 38 communities where the program operates. There are approximately 3,300 children attending suburban schools through the METCO program. Approximately 130 students attend Wayland schools in grades 1 through 12.
