Where do we get our Trees from you ask?
Cool Springs Nursery will deliver freshly cut Frasier fir trees and wreaths direct from their farm in North Carolina. There are several sizes to choose from, with prices ranging from $85 to $120. Wreaths and Candles are also available for $30 and $10 a pack, respectively.
The Fraser Fir tree has a symmetrical shape and very tapered, sometimes described as an upside-down cone. The needles are soft and short, deep green on the top, and a silverfish-blue on the bottom. The branches are strong with a sweet fragrance, and it has excellent needle retention. Due to the branches turning slightly upward, it has somewhat of a compact appearance.
Why this fundraiser is so important. The Winnona Park PTA supports many offerings and initiatives including:
- Classroom libraries
- Teacher and parent grants
- Field trips
- Guest speakers for all students
- Facility enhancements
- Various community-building events
- School community garden
- Incoming Kindergartener tees
Got questions about the specifics of these areas of support, reach out to us we would be happy to share them with you so that you understand the vital importance of the PTA that makes Winnona Park Elementary School so Special.
Thank you for your support,
Winnona Park Elementary PTA

Who We AreThe Winnona Park PTA includes families and teachers affiliated with Winnona Park Elementary School, working together to build community through school events, committees, and initiatives. We elect a Board made up of WPES parents, along with our Principal, Ruth Scott, and several teacher representatives. The Board meets once a month to discuss upcoming events, goals, needs, and concerns raised in the WP community.
