Outside Recess

Children will go outside for recess every day unless the wind chill is below 0 (zero) degrees. Please help your child remember to wear a warm coat and bring gloves, hat, scarf and boots so that recess will be an enjoyable time outdoors!

Reflections Art Program

Thanks to all students who entered the Reflections art program for 2017. Your work is inspiring and truly unique! Next step is local judging and then on to State competition in January. Those entries who move along in the competition will be notified by email and recognized in the Winchester Weekly, as well.

Best of luck to all who turned in entries! Please contact me if you have NOT received an email confirmation that your entry was received.

Science Olympiad ~ Grades 3-5

Science Olympiad is an enhancement to the math and science curriculum taught here at Winchester. It is open to 3rd – 5th students and gives them the opportunity to explore the various science based topics listed below with a group of other interested students. We need the support of interested parents & students to make this wonderful program work. The program is run by volunteers who coach each Science Olympiad event. Your student may join as many events/topics as they would like for a one-time supply fee of $30. See attached flyer for more information and sign up form.

Holiday Cookie Exchange

We love our Winchester staff and we know our families do as well! We are planning a "We bake it, you take it holiday cookie exchange" where the parents bake the cookies and the teachers and staff can take them home to share with their families. We are looking for 40+ volunteers to bake 2-3 dozen cookies and bring them in to school on Thursday, December 14th.

Please sign up below to help make this cookie exchange a memorable one!

Thank you to all our wonderfully giving families. ~ Angie Armstrong and Kate Wiest, Teacher Appreciation Committee
