Principal's Letter

Dear Lake Windward Families,

It's been a fun, busy few weeks at LWE! We had a successful outdoor movie night hosted by our PTO, an informative and fun Healthy Habits Week (a.k.a. Red Ribbon Week), and our big Boosterthon fun run is tomorrow! If we hit our goal of $20,000 tonight, the LWE Admin team will be racing tomorrow afternoon in inflatable costumes!! I can't wait to see how this turns out!!

Thank you for your support of our wonderful school. All the money raised will be going toward a Media Center makeover and school improvements. We appreciate all who have participated!

Have a great week!

Warm regards,

Julie Morris

Morning Carpool/Arrival Times

Morning carpool starts at 7:10 am. Please be aware that the tardy bell rings at 7:40 am. Our instructional day begins at 7:40 am. If you arrive after 7:40 am, you need to park your car and walk your child inside to get a tardy slip. We are having A LOT of families come right at 7:40 am and after. We need your help with getting your student(s) here earlier in order to be on time for morning routines and instruction.

**Please note that the staff assisting with carpool have to come inside at 7:40 am as they have students and other assigned responsibilities that they need to get to.**
