Black History Month Creative Writing Contest Award Winner

Drop Off Procedures

Additional reminder to parents - please be cognizant of our drop off procedures in the morning. If you are dropping your son/daughter off at school, please be sure to keep your car in the lane closest to the sidewalk and be sure that your son/daughter exits the vehicle onto the sidewalk, ONLY. The adult "helpers" outside are there for one reason - SAFETY for all. Please follow their instructions and assistance at all times – especially being waved to move up to the front of the line nearest the sidewalk leading to the crosswalk. This gives cars more room to move away from the long line of cars on Abbott Road. Thank you for understanding and assisting us.

Makerspace News

We are collecting donations for the Windermere Makerspace. Please sign up and send an item into school with your child. Thanks in advance for your support!

ESL Potluck Supper

The 12th Annual ESL Potluck Supper was held on Thursday evening. Families brought dishes from their countries to share. The event began with a parade of flags. The students then performed for all the families and staff in attendance. Such a special event!

Rock Your Socks

On Wednesday, March 21st, #WorldDownSyndromeDay, we participated in Rock Your Socks to support the rights, inclusion and well-being of people with Down Syndrome in our school, community and around the world. It is the hope that rocking our funky and mismatched socks can spark conversations about the ways in which we care about and celebrate the things that make each of us unique! As we continue to 'look for the good' at Windermere School, it is important to recognize the different gifts everyone possesses.

Windermere is special because...

Happy 50th Anniversary
