Parent Feedback Survey

Again this year, our schools are conducting parent surveys about school climate that will provide valuable feedback to us. The survey was designed by Ellington teachers and administrators, and the data gathered will be used to ensure our schools promote positive learning environments and academic success for our students.

The survey is designed with a scale for responses from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree. There are 20 items in the survey and it should take no more than 5 to 7 minutes to complete. Summary data will be shared with the school administration. Your individual responses will not be identified. You may leave any question blank, but please try to answer as many questions as you can.

The survey window will be open from September 18th to September 25, 2017: Windermere Parent Feedback Survey

Mission Kindness Club

The Mission Kindness Club worked on the garden in the courtyard. To honor their teachers, each 6th grade class decorated a rock to place in the garden.



Makerspace

I’m sure you see by the projects coming home and the excitement from our children, that our Makerspace is a great room to learn and collaborate. Thank you for your generous donations to the Windermere Makerspace! We are currently restocked on the following items, and ask that you kindly refrain from sending these items into school until further notice:

  • cardboard
  • plastic bottles
  • gallon jugs
  • cereal boxes
  • toilet paper & paper towel rolls
  • egg cartons

We are still in need of the following items and we continue to welcome these donations:

  • building blocks (any kind)
  • Legos
  • tape (any kind)
  • toothpicks
  • cotton swabs
  • rubber bands
  • index cards
  • newspaper
  • clay
  • pom poms
  • Play Doh

In the future, we will ask specific grade levels to send in donations at certain times during the year in an effort to keep inventory levels steady and find adequate storage space for overflow supplies. We truly appreciate your support of the Makerspace! Our parents and students have been awesome! If you have any questions about donations please contact Jenna Dhandapani at jdhandapani@ellingtonschools.net

Drop Off Reminder

Please be careful when dropping off your child in the parent drop off lane and be sure not to drop him/her off at the corner near the 5/6 wing. It can be dangerous and cause undue traffic tie-ups. When dropping off in the parent drop off lane; pull all the way up to the median sidewalk rather than stopping right at the crosswalk. This will assuage the backup that occurs in this lane out to Abbott Road. Thank you for understanding and your patience with this process.
