Socials are a great way to get to know other Winston parents. There are several to chose from below with more coming. If you'd like to host a social, whether you are a brand new parent or have had a student at Winston for years, we'd love to post your social idea. The hosts of each social cover all the costs themselves and the sign up fees go towards the auction proceeds. You can reserve your spot in any social before the auction by writing a check for the amount of the social and writing the social name in the memo portion of your check. Make the check out to Winston PTO. Drop the check in an envelope in the auction box to the left of the front desk. If you are attending the auction, you can sign up for all socials there, space permitting. For questions, please contact or .
