Dear Winslow Families,
Thanks to everyone who donated to our coin drive last week! As I shared, all proceeds will be donated to The Willie Bee Foundation. This is a great example of how we are teaching our students how to be socially aware. Be sure to check out the Important Dates section below. We have included event dates from now through the remainder of the school year. The PTO decided this past week to have a Talent Show and Family Dance, and we moved our End-Of-Year Picnic to Friday, June 9!
Here are some additional items for the coming week and beyond.
Winslow’s Battle of the Books Continues
Winslow's Battle of the Books continued this past week! Each week, students read two books and then vote for their favorite on Friday. This past week, students read or listened to “Mommy’s Khimar” and “John's Turn.” Watch this video for a preview of the books battling this week. https://www.wevideo.com/view/
District Music Festival
