Welcome Winthrop Families and Friends!



Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week


Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is coming up (May 6th through the 10th)! FOW Volunteers are preparing to host an amazing week for Winthrop Teachers and Staff. Please consider donating to help FOW make the week even more special for each of them! All donations will go toward Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, so the more we raise, the more we do for them.


Yearbook Information


Yearbook orders will be taken through next Wednesday, May 1st, 2024. Click here to order your yearbook ASAP!


We are in the process of building the yearbook! Please take a little time to go through your pictures to see if you have anything you would like to share for consideration for the yearbook. Using the "Places" map on your phone is a great way to find photos from school events like the Back to School Social, Halloween Happenings, Holiday Boutique, Family Movie Night, even last year's end-of-the-year events, etc. Please send any photos to Victoria at FOWYearbook@gmail.com.

Thanks to our amazing community, we don't have to ask families to go door-to-door to sell cookies or wrapping paper, but we need your help. How Can You Help Winthrop School?

  • Volunteer! We need families who are willing to help both in the classroom and at Events, especially Holiday Boutique, our biggest fundraiser.
  • Come to meetings to stay in-the-know.
  • Read communications. We send out emails, newsletters, flyers, and are working on community boards for staying in-touch with other classroom families. We also regularly put reminders in the weekly Winthrop Update.
  • Enjoy our Events!
  • Donate to Cultural/Curriculum Enrichment to help with field trips and other events!
  • Donate to the 5th Graders to help them have an amazing end-of-year celebration!
  • Other Fundraisers
    • Crosby Receipts
