This Week at Windsor...
October 14th, 2022
Just a reminder that there is no school Wednesday-Friday of next week. If you have not yet signed up for a parent-teacher conference, please do as soon as possible via the links below, the conference links will close at noon on Monday, October 17th.
Reminder to parent volunteers, please only go to the location in which you are volunteering. Many families have more than one child at Windsor, you cannot visit your other child or that child's teacher during the school day. Teachers are not able to meet with parents unannounced and it can be very distracting for students if parents stop by a classroom unannounced.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mrs. Anastacio and Mrs. Soprano

Pack the Piggies Fun-raiser!!!
Are you ready to Pack the Piggies? The Arlington Heights Council of PTA’s (AHC-PTA) funds $10k worth of scholarships each year. Over the last 50 years, the AHC-PTA has given over $500,000.00 in scholarship money away! The scholarships are divided into $9k for graduating D214 seniors, and $1k given to D25 elementary students for the AHPD. In our inaugural “Pack the Piggies” fun-raiser last school year, we raised over $9k in scholarship money! We are about to embark on our second annual contest!
The contest begins October 24 thru the 28th. Each school will have a goal of raising $1k, with the district goal being $9k. If the district goal is attained, each school will win its predetermined prize chosen by the principal. Please help your students reach their goal by having them bring in coins, cash, or checks(made out to the AHC-PTA) to pack their school’s piggy! Let’s have some fun for a great cause!
On Tuesday, Dr. Bein emailed you asking for your feedback and thoughts on the following prompt: Please share your thoughts, feelings or questions about your sense of belonging, value, and inclusion in the District 25 community.
There is still time to give your feedback, and to review and rate other responses!
Please take a few minutes to complete or revisit this short survey (linked here). If you already completed the survey, please spend a few more minutes reading and rating other responses from around the community. This survey is completely anonymous.
*Please note, any targeted comments or comments that name individuals will be removed.*
