Nov. 10 Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to wish everyone a happy Veteran’s Day - particularly to those who have given up so much to serve our country.  I would like to recognize three such individuals who are current members of the McCall staff. They are Phil Doucette, Sargent, United States Marine Corps, Larry Farelli, Corporal, United States Marine Corps, and John Gill, Captain, United States Army. Please join me in thanking these three staff members and all veterans in the for their contribution to the Winchester community and our country.

I would also like to take this opportunity to share some information pertaining to the McCall Parent Association (MPA). Congratulations to all of the parents who participated in the McCall Parents Association's One and Done fundraiser in October. I was very excited to see that $41K—nearly 80% of the total goal—was raised. Please accept my thanks on behalf of everyone at McCall. We are grateful that the MPA provides necessary items that are outside of our regular school budget. There is never an obligation to give, but if you would still like to donate to help the MPA fully fund its budget for this year, you can donate here.

McCall is offering spirit wear! From now until November 20th, you can order sweatshirts, t-shirts, and hats here. Items will be delivered to McCall by mid-December. I will be sporting a McCall hoodie soon....

As a reminder, while we do send out daily announcements via email, the MPA's weekly newsletter is another excellent resource for information about the school and the Winchester community. Their newsletter is sent via email on Monday mornings. If you're not receiving it (and it's not accidentally in the spam folder), you can subscribe to the newsletter by clicking here. The newsletter always is posted on the MPA's website,, too.

Thank you and enjoy the upcoming week!
