A Message From Your Majesty
It is hard to believe we are nearing the end of March! They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb and the weather next week reflects that! As we move into warmer weather, please make sure your students are wearing school appropriate clothing. The uniform expectation is: navy, black or khaki pants, skirts or finger-tip length shorts along with black, navy, light blue, yellow or white shirts. Spaghetti straps and bare midriffs are not appropriate and alternatives will be required to be worn. The free store is open and parents are free to shop for possible uniform options.
As always, we are here for questions, comments or concerns.
VICE PRINCIPAL TATE
Teaching for Equity Requires Collaboration
Dear Caregivers and School Community,
We have had another great week together at Windsor and as you can tell, spring is definitely right around the corner. Thanks to our staff, we seamlessly welcomed back our 6th grade cohorts. As a school, we are extremely pleased to watch our students follow school routines and procedures that maximize our learning and support a positive climate and culture. On behalf of the staff, I want to say thank you for partnering with us to work towards a strong finish for this last quarter of the school year. We still need your help getting the students to school for in person learning and making sure they are logging on when learning from home. Next week, Grades 3-5 will have designated days and times for testing , and all tests will be administered during regular classroom time in the classrooms on chromebooks. Please encourage appropriate sleep and screen time. All other grades will adhere to their regular schedule. We look forward to our time with your children. I’m confident we will have another productive week ahead.
