Thank You for Your Generosity!

I wanted to extend our gratitude to all of you who donated during the Brendan's Friday Backpack food drive. We collected over 3,000 items for the program. These items directly benefit Windsor students, as well as other students in Jefferson County. Thank you again for your kindness and selflessness.

Character Words of the Month: Perseverance

Perseverance is continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.


This month our students will be learning about and focusing on perseverance. Our character goal for this month is "I can keep going when I make a mistake." We want to encourage our students to always try their best while still teaching them that mistakes are inevitable learning opportunities.
