Principally Speaking

What a fantastic beginning of school we have had at Windy Hills! I can't remember a more successful start to a school year. I know we are going to have an awesome 2021-22 year!

Our Wildcats have been working very hard the last couple of weeks learning routines, developing community, and focusing on learning new curriculum. The staff at Windy Hills have committed to providing each student with engaging educational experiences, learning key reading strategies, developing number sense and mathematical problem solving skills, along with challenging Science and Social Studies activities.

It is an honor to serve as the principal of Windy Hills Elementary! Thank you for trusting us with your children each day! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher or myself directly.

As always, we do things the Wildcat Way at Windy Hills!

Mrs. Botts' Spot

Have you ever watched children riding on a see-saw? They have to work together. If one child gets off, the other can't ride. That's a good way to think about your relationship with your child's teacher. If you work together, you can build a strong partnership. This partnership starts when you fill out the forms your child brings home . The teacher needs to know how he or she can contact you. If your contact information changes, let the office know.

You should also find time to talk with the teacher about your child. Plan to attend parent-teacher conferences. If you can't make the event, ask the teacher if you can meet another time.

If is also important that you share information about your child with the teacher. Open communication is one key to your child's success.
