Week at Windsor 12.22.19

Looking back and ahead at Windsor news and happenings...

Dear Windsor Families,

Hoping this weekend's message finds you well. Here is our final Week at Windsor for the year 2019!

We had such a fun and festive week here at school. We included some links but please check out our school Twitter page. It definitely captures the many different highlights!

We hope you and your children have a safe and wonderful winter break. As a reminder, students return to school on Monday, January 6, 2020.

As the year 2019 nears its end, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have contributed to the success of our school. It is a privilege to teach your children each day and to serve such a supportive community.

In this spirit, we say simply but sincerely…Thank You and Best Wishes for the New Year!
