Spring Book Fair - Volunteers Needed

Please sign up to help at Winchester's first Follett Book Fair happening April 22nd-26th.

As a thank you for your time, all volunteer's will receive 20% off of purchases at the fair!


Proper Shoes

For the safety of all students, please wear proper shoes to PE class. Tennis shoes are best!

In the warmer weather kids like to wear flip flops and sandals and in the winter boots

are often necessary. During these times, pack tennis shoes in your backpack so you

can change before coming to PE.

PE classes outside

Please plan to dress appropriately to be outside in PE. This means that in the morning
students shoes may get wet from the dew (pack extra socks or shoes to accommodate

the problem of having wet shoes/socks all day). You may also want to wear sun screen

to school since we will be outside whenever possible!
