A Message From Your Majesty

Dear Windsor Families,

We have all been practicing social distancing, washing our hands and learning to support each other. We speak for the whole faculty when we say that we are truly excited to be back at school in the blended learning model. We love being with your kids and cherish the day-to-day interactions we have with them.

Obviously this significant endeavor would not be possible if it were not for our creative, inspiring, and dedicated teachers. We are proud and thankful for how they’re managing through this change by developing thoughtful lessons and activities for your children and by keeping your children connected on their asynchronous days.

Please note that most children benefit from predictability and routine. To the extent that you can support them on their asynchronous days, students are expected to log in and complete iREADY assignments and teacher created assignments in order to be counted as “present” for the day. It is important to note that just coming to school on in-person days is not enough to meet the attendance requirement so please work closely with your child’s teacher to develop a mutually agreed upon plan for your student’s success.

Thank you for all that you do!


Teaching for Equity Requires Collaboration

I just want to thank everyone in the building for having a very positive week. I was able to make my way to every classroom and I saw quality instruction and students engaged. Staff, the amount of collaboration was wonderful. This is truly how we can move the needle at Windsor. Working together, helping each other out, true collaboration! I hope to see this continued effort for the remainder of the school year. Special shout out to Ms. Shawntae and Ms. B for helping me with a major project without even being asked. They simply asked what I needed help with and they made magic happen, and for that I am truly grateful.

OUR WEEKLY SNAPSHOT 2/15-2/19/2021




Welcome to Pre-K! Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will begin Thursday April 1, 2021. So that your child can participate in Pre-K next school year he or she must be four(4) years old by September 30, 2021. Your first step is to register using the Columbus City Schools web site. You will click on the tab heading for Departments and select Early Childhood Education (on the left side)! Fill in the Online Registration and click the Begin Registration. You will have guided instructions to follow throughout this procedure.
