Principal's Letter

Dear Lake Windward Families,

In this season of thanksgiving, I am so thankful for our students' inquisitive minds, our teachers' desire and commitment to provide students with an optimal learning experience, and our support staff's unwavering dedication to our work. I am thankful for each parent who trusts us to teach their child and partners with us throughout their child's educational journey. It is indeed a journey, and the work we do is important. Together, we are preparing our children to be productive and kind citizens of our world, and I cannot wait to see how our Gators positively impact our world in the future!

I am also thankful for ALL of the families who supported our PTO's Boosterthon school fundraiser. We exceeded our goal and raised over $25,000 for our school. In addition to our students having a blast with the fun run, this also meant that the school's admin team got to race in inflatable suits... :)

I hope you are able to enjoy your time with family and friends next week during the Thanksgiving week break. Stay safe and have fun!

Warm regards,

Julie Morris
