Thanks for your generosity!

We know our Winchester students love and appreciate our amazing teachers, and Teacher Appreciation week is the time for us to show them! Please print out the attached flower template and have your child decorate it and write why they appreciate their teacher! Naming the teacher would be great, so the flowers can be given to the correct teacher after they are displayed in a school bulletin board for the week. Feel free to have your child make more than one and for any teachers! The more flowers for our “garden”, the better!

Flowers can be turned in to the office anytime before Friday, May 3rd. Any questions, please email Andrea Couture at

Rollerskating Party

Winchester has a skating party scheduled for Thursday, May 2nd from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. This will be our last one this year and our split party, meaning half of the admission will come back to the Winchester PTA! Last year we had around $150 donated back to us from this party. Our goal, as always, is to have fun! Please join us if you can and bring the whole family.
