This Week at Windsor...

#WEAREWINDSOR

April 1st, 2022

Windsor Families,


I hope you all had a relaxing and fun spring break! The students earned a Wildcat Way reward for the month of March for being kind, safe, and responsible. They voted for a pajama day, so Monday, April 4th will be pajama day!


We are so excited to share that Windsor ended up being the top contributor for our Pack the Piggies Fundraiser! When we shared that we were $60 short of our goal of $1000.00, the community truly came through and we ended up raising $1739.99!!! So AMAZING!!!! There was no April Fools joke, today, the students got to see Mrs. Anastacio and Mrs. Soprano kiss a pig! A real pig! So many students asked us this week if we were really going to kiss a pig, check out the videos to see what really happened!

Please continue to check out the Save the Date section below as we have many fun upcoming events! Next Thursday, we will be hosting our first Open House since 2019! We are very excited to see this event back!


Today we kicked off BeYOUnique month. Throughout the month of April Windsor students will learn more about different disabilities and abilities. All students had the opportunity in their art class last month to design a handprint with what makes them unique. These handprints will be hung around the first floor of the building to show that we are all unique but we are all one community! Be sure to check it out when you come in for Open House next week.

Lunch Information


Please note that students who choose to pack a meal from home are invited to take a bag with milk that will also contain a fruit, vegetable, and grain at no charge. If your child has food allergies or food intolerances, please work with them to identify what they can consume from this bag, should they decide to pick it up.


All of these bagged items will be wrapped. If a student chooses not to consume all items, those may be placed on a table in the eating area so as to not be wasted.


As a reminder, lunch is free this school year for all District 25 students.


Thank you,

April- Move More Month

Did you know that April is National MOVE MORE MONTH?!! Kids should be moving their bodies at least 60 minutes a day, and adults should aim for 150 minutes of physical activity a week! Check out more information HERE! But the BEST part about physical activity is that it looks different for everyone! Riding your bike- that counts! Jumping on the trampoline- that counts!

Walking your dog- that counts!
