Winthrop Express

The place for all your Winthrop PTO news!

The Winthrop Express Newsletter was relaunched in January 2022 as a way to streamline communication between the PTO and parents/caregivers. The e-newsletter is distributed twice a month and features upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, school news, important links, and more.

More News & Notes from the PTO!

Here are just a few reasons to be a part of the PTO for the 2023-2024 school year:

  • PTO meetings offer parents the opportunity to know what is happening in the school and the wider community.
  • Participating in PTO shows an interest in your child’s education and activities, shows support for teachers and school administration, and helps foster the relationships between personnel and parents.
  • Our PTO does some amazing things for our kids and their school. It feels great to be a part of that and see the benefits.
  • It’s fun! You can be involved in ways that can fit your abilities and your schedule.

Please consider getting involved in the PTO.  Our school thrives because of our volunteers!

If you have a particular area of interest or have any questions, feel free to contact
