Stock up on cookies at the Cookie Walk, bid on gift baskets donated by Winthrop School classes. Enjoy a scrumptious lunch in the Winthrop Café (all food donated by local restaurants and caterers), and browse full selection from Scholastic Book Fair. Children will delight in doing their own holiday shopping with the help of some very eager elves in the Children’s Secret Shop where all gifts cost $6 or less. And most importantly, Santa will be on site!
The holiday boutique is the largest fundraiser for the Friends of Winthrop. 100% of the funds raised goes back to the school to fund new technology, cultural enrichment programs that enhance the curriculum, new playground equipment and field trips.
