Every current parent in the Winsor Community is a welcomed and valued member of the Parents' Association.
With a mission of "fostering a warm, welcoming, and inclusive community for all Winsor families", the Parents' Association seeks to strengthen the connection of parents with Winsor and each other. To this end, the PA sponsors parent socials, meetings with faculty and administrators, diversity forums, and guest speakers throughout the academic year. There are also a tremendous number of volunteer opportunities available to suit your schedule and interests.
Volunteering through the PA is a great way to meet other parents and to contribute to the school in a significant way.
