Windermere Primary

From the Principal

The End Is Near

We are very close to the end of the school year, but there are VERY important things happening in your child's class each day! We are completing our end of year assessments in Math and Reading. It is important your child is well rested and at school on time each day, even on the last week of school! We want to enjoy every last minute with our kids!

Beat the Summer Slide

Research shows that most students lose some of their reading and math skills over the summer. If books and learning opportunities are not provided to our students over the break from school, they are in danger of losing up to 50% of what they learned during the school year. Our children cannot afford to come back behind. It is extremely important to engage with your children and make sure they are reading and practicing math every day throughout the summer. This week we sent home a WPS Summer Slide letter that has information about our incentives for students who participate. I truly hope we are sliding when we come back on a GIANT BLOW UP SLIDE and NOT letting our skills slide over the summer!

Early Release - June 1st - Last Day of School - Students go home at 12 noon.
