The day got off to a sweet start for Winstead Elementary parents November 1 and 2 at the annual Pastries with Parents event.

For the fifth year, parents were invited to spend a few minutes of their day enjoying a donut with their children and explore the book fair happening in the library.

“They’re so appreciative,” said Winstead Elementary PTO President Consuelo Hawkins. “Parents love coming in and just sitting down with their children. It’s 10 minutes of their day. It’s not rushed. There are no phones, and they can just sit down and talk. It’s an easy thing for us to do, and parents just enjoy it.”
