A Message From THE KING

Hello parents, This has been a great week at Windsor. We introduced the Windsor Cafe to our students during lunch. We are using restaurant etiquette during lunch, which includes our voice levels, staying in our seats, thanking our wonderful lunch ladies, and making sure we keep our areas clean. Each lunch period we select our Windsor Cafe Champions, who have demonstrated the qualities and expectations in the cafe.

I also am very proud of our parents during our arrival and dismissal procedures. Please be sure to stay in your cars and we will help get your student out and safely into the building. If you need to park please do so right across the street to ensure we can keep our arrival and dismissal line moving as smoothly as possible. I appreciate you all and remember we are all on the same team and I am always available to answer any questions or concerns.

Just a few reminders:

Parents/Guardians, please remember to record your student's attendance each CLICK day in Infinite Campus. If you are having trouble with Parent Portal Access, call the CCS Help Desk:614-365-8425. Additionally, P-EBT Cards are coming soon in the mail to the address listed in Infinite Campus. This card is permanent; for more details, click on the P-EBT link listed below.

Best part about working at Windsor:

The best part about working at Windsor is the wonderful community! Over this service year, I want to learn how to best use my unique gifts and talents to serve the people and communities around me, right now in Columbus, and wherever I end up in the future

One thing you want to learn from this experience (Windsor/ City Year):

Windsor is such a caring place and is filled with a lot of people who are committed to improving each other and our community. Therefore, I hope to learn more about the importance of care and love for my community during my time at Windsor. There is no better place to learn about the values of community than right here at our school!

Fun Fact/ Hidden talent of yourself:

I once performed for Paul Simon of Simon and Garfunkel

How has working in a pandemic changed your life:

Working in the pandemic has been challenging for me in a multitude of ways, as it has been for almost everyone. However, I’ve also gotten the chance to be so much more creative and innovative in my service than I ever would have been had it not been necessary! I’m hopeful for things to get back to normal soon-ish, but this last year has certainly not been a waste, and there is still much good work to be done!

Happy Black History Month From Librarian Mrs. Jordan


Buffalo Soldiers originally were members of the 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, formed on September 21, 1866, at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. This nickname was given to the Black Cavalry by Native American tribes who fought in the Indian Wars. Buffalo soldiers were African American soldiers who mainly served on the Western frontier following the American Civil War. Six all-Black cavalry and infantry regiments were created after Congress passed the Army Organization Act. EPIC SCHOOLS


As the daughter of a father who was in the Air Force, hearing his stories of being in the Vietnam War was fascinating to me. So when I learned about the Buffalo soldiers, I was mesmerized. Their story is of perseverance, strength, courage and bravery. To see my son, who is in the Army follow the footsteps of the men in his family, makes me one proud mother!
