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

Teachers say Thanks!

Hundreds of Winchester families ended the school year by making a tribute to a favorite educator. Those tributes came with flocks of flamingos that landed on every school's lawn on the last day of the year. 

 

Nothing says love like a flock of multicolored flamingos but teachers really treasure the tributes. 

 

"Thanks for teaching me all the things I never dreamed of knowing."

"Thank you for being an amazing mentor."

"You have inspired me beyond what this flamingo represents."

 

A very big thank you the sponsor of this project and the Head of the Flock, Winchester Savings Bank!
