Your gifts to WFEE ensure that something exciting and innovative is happening at every school in Winchester. 

  • Award winning authors and illustrators visit each year, encouraging a love of literacy, showing our children how to succeed as writers

  • WHS students facing learning challenges now have additional support mastering curriculum thanks to WFEE grants

  • Elementary students are enjoying increasingly diverse book collections 

These are just a few of the WFEE funded grants that are impacting students every day thanks to gifts from our community. Educators tell us that WFEE's grants make ours a stronger school system. 

“It is empowering as a teacher to know that I have a support system in addition to the district to help me bring big ideas to reality in the classroom.”  Anne Bianchini, Lynch Educator

WFEE also helps students turn their big ideas into reality with our Student Innovation Grants. Given at all levels, elementary through high school, the $1,000 grants fund everything from technology to Buddy Benches. 

Inspiring innovation, supporting creativity - that has been WFEE's mission since 1993. Thank you for joining us in making a difference! 

Authorfest

Thank you to the 16 authors and illustrators who visited all of our elementary schools and McCall Middle School. 

"Authorfest provides students a chance to see authors as people who have worked hard at improving their skills. They came away thinking where their hard work might lead them."
Elementary Library Media Specialists

Revising, editing, character development, having fun with words, all of that and more was presented by our authors. 

"Our students were tremendously engaged and inspired by Authorfest. Thank you!" Carolyn Plosky

Buzz Bee-Gins

 

After two years of virtual Trivia Bees it is time to "bee" in person! 

 

The Bee in a Bag was lots of fun but gathering the hive on a cold winter's night is even better. This will "bee" the 20th year that the Winchester community has come together to either test their spelling skills or their knowledge of trivia. 

Sign up now!  Teams of three will compete on Wednesday, Feb. 8th at Winchester Town Hall. The fun starts at 7:00pm with our Fifth Graders, chosen randomly at each elementary school. The play one round then the adults take over. Learn more.  Costumes, while not required, are encouraged. 

A very big thank you to longtime Queen Bee sponsors Barrett Sotheby's International Realty and Moriarty Construction. Don't "bee" late to sign up!
