Stella's Station

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Commons last night to experience Ready, Set, Design! with your family! This is a fun STEM activity that we've been doing at Windsor for several years now. The best thing about it is that even with the same prompt, students make something different every time! This is actually a fun rainy day activity that you could do in the summer with your children - creativity doesn't go on Summer Break! You can check out the directions for the activity and some pictures I took last evening by clicking HERE! Have a great weekend!

Notes from our Nurse...

All Illinois children in Kindergarten, Grade 2 and Grade 6 are required to have a dental examination. Each child is required to present proof of examination by a licensed dentist prior to May 15, 2022.


Please reach out to Mrs. Carpenter with any questions.

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!
