Good afternoon,

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!  Sunday looks like the pick of the weekend for weather.  To all of our Mom's, enjoy the day with family and friends!

JUNIOR COTILLION- Saturday, May 12th: Hello Class of 2019
We are super excited that tomorrow, Saturday, May 12th, is your Junior Cotillion! It is important to note a few specific details to help us all have great fun and a memorable experience!
  • Cotillion pictures will be held on the football field or in the cafe prior to attending Kimball Farm.  You can arrive at Westford Academy for 5:45 PM (High heels will not be allowed on the football field). Upon arrival at the WA Football Field, you will be asked to check in and you will receive a bracelet for Kimball Farm.  (If there is inclement weather, the cafeteria will be prepped and ready to go as an alternate place to take pictures.)
  • In addition to the field and/or cafe for pictures, we will be opening the W.A. Courtyard, which will is in beautiful shape and great for some group pitcures.
  • You must wear the bracelet so that you have access to all the activities (golf, photo booth, volleyball, and more).
  • Please arrive at Kimball's by 7:00 PM. There should be signs directing traffic to park in the back of Kimball's for easier access for all of us.
  • There will be trolleys and golf carts to get guests to and from the parking lot.
  • The Cotillion will end promptly at 11:00 PM.
Please remember that ALL SCHOOL RULES APPLY.  Even though we are off-campus, school rules still apply and will be enforced. Please come to the cotillion ready to eat, dance, golf, play volleyball, and have as much fun as you can! Finally, please remember, we will not be the only group of people at Kimball's that night. This is your chance to show the world how truly great Westford Academy and all of its students are.  We know we need not remind you, but we must - please show proper respect to the grounds, Kimball's, and other guests on this great night.  You want this to be a night you will remember!

Remember All The Balloons Last Year?
The Westford Education Foundation is doing it again. Send your favorite WA Class of 2018 graduates shiny maroon and silver Mylar balloons as a fun way to congratulate them on this big accomplishment. Imagine hundreds of balloons decorating mailboxes and front porches of WA seniors throughout town on graduation day.  Balloons are just $6 each.  An array of six balloons to the same address (ordered at the same time) is $30. The deadline to order balloons is THURSDAY, May 24, 2018.  Go to for the balloon order form. Be sure to include the gradsí names, addresses, and your own personal note for each recipient, and WEF will take care of the rest. Balloons will be delivered the day before graduation. Questions? Contact Kelly Guthrie at Proceeds from balloon sales help WEF fund a wide variety of innovative educational and professional development grants for Westford schools, as well as two scholarships to graduating seniors majoring in education. The Westford Education Foundation is grateful for your support.
