“Education commences at the mother’s knee, and every word spoken within the hearsay of little children tends towards the formation of character.”

~~ Hosea Ballou

With thanks ….

At last week’s assembly for students in grades K-2, we discussed the many things in life that we are thankful for. There was much discussion about home, sprinkled with some school thanks (mostly about the monkey bars), and many, many good ideas. Students then wrote their thanks on a “turkey feather” which are now on display in the main hall at Winthrop. Take a look!

Superintendent Search

The School Committee is currently in the process of creating a Superintendent Search Committee.  Details about this process can be found on the district website, or directly here.

For our part, the Winthrop Site Council is actively seeking parents who are interested in being part of this exciting process.  If you are interested in serving on the Superintendent Search Committee, please email me a letter of interest before Wednesday, November 23rd.  Your email should include your name, your student(s) name(s), the reason you are interested, and what qualifications you would add to the committee.

Anything missing from your home?

Look at what’s been found around Winthrop! Anything look familiar? I’ve double checked for names on items and returned anything I could, but all these items are nameless and headed for a local charity.
