Family Weekend


We're looking forward to you joining us again on campus when we gather to welcome everyone to Family Weekend.  Over the course of the weekend, you will have opportunities to celebrate accomplishments in and out of the classroom when you meet with the teachers and advisors that help to shape the Winchendon School experience. You'll get to learn more about the Winch Way and connect with the parents who form our wider community.  As the weekend approaches, you will continue to hear from us about events and receive news on how to schedule teacher meetings, etc.

We do have several events planned we want to share with you now. 

Over the weekend you're likely to find students competing on the fields, rehearsing for performances, and being recognized for their academic work. Their work is important and we want to be sure you highlight these events on your schedule. On Friday, October 18th, we will begin the important work of finding the right fit college with a College Counseling Round Table, all students and families are encouraged to attend. Friday evening, we will induct members into the National Honor Society, to be followed by dinner-theater student performance. Saturday morning, we will hold a workshop on deconstructing how standardized testing fits into the college application process.
