February's Principal's Message Dear Parents,

Let’s talk Attendance.  In order for us to avoid a demotion from the state on our state report card due to Chronic Absenteeism we must achieve a high attendance rating.  We are shooting for 96%! Every week on the announcements we are congratulating the classrooms that are meeting that goal. It used to be almost every classroom, but for the past few weeks we have only been able to congratulate a few rooms.  We really need all students at school, ON TIME, every day. Yes, tardies and early sign-outs count against your child’s individual attendance and against our school-wide attendance as a whole. Of course, if your child has a fever or is vomiting, he/she needs to stay home in order to get better.  The typical cold; however, is not usually something that requires a day off of school.  

Please, please, please do your very best to get your child to school on time each and every day!

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong

January Principal's Message:
Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! It was so wonderful to see the school bustling with happy and energetic faces again! I am truly blessed to work with such amazing adults and children! There are a few things to keep in mind. Please make sure that you are encouraging your child to do his/her homework. Homework is typically practice or review work that is necessary for the students to master the material. Not completing homework can have a drastic effect on school performance.  Your child should also be reading nightly at home.  Don’t forget to ask them about the story as they read.  Conversations about what they are reading are just as important as the reading itself!  Remember, our theme for this school year is “We’re All Wonders.”  Talk to your child every day about how he/she chose kindness at school and how they appreciate the differences in others.  For parents who pick up their children in the parking lot every day, please remember if you want to pick up your child at the door you must park in the parking lot. There is no parking in the pick-up lane. If you are in the pick-up lane, please continue to pull your car forward until you are at the back of the car in front of you. Gaps in the line make it difficult to keep everyone moving. If you do see a gap in the line, please don’t let that person’s mistake affect your choices. Do not get out of line and cut in front of everyone else.  

As always, please reach out to us and let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong

December Principal's Message:
Dear Parents/Guardians,

Brrrr! It’s getting very cold outside. Please make sure that your child has appropriate winter clothes for outside recess. This includes our young ladies who need to have tights on under their dresses or skirts. We will go outside for recess unless the temperature drops below 20 degrees or if the playground is covered in snow or sopping wet. 

All students should be reading at home every night. This is an expected part of their homework and for many it counts as part of their grade in class. Please ask questions about what your child is reading. Things like: Tell me about the story. Who is the main character? What other book is this one like and why? If your child/ren hesitates or stumbles in providing the answers, then there’s a good chance they are not reading for understanding, and they might need to read it again.

If I don’t see you between now and winter break, please have a safe, happy and wonderful time with your family and friends over the holiday!

Mrs. Megan Lee-Wilfong

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ November Principal's Message: Hello Families!

I simply cannot believe that it is November already!  We are so very busy working and learning each and every day that time is truly flying by. The first grading period has come to an end. Report cards have come home. 

As the holidays draw closer, we will have a lot of activities here at school. Please make sure that you are checking backpacks every night.  Please make sure that you are filling out and sending in the RSVP’s to our events when they are due. We would hate to run out of materials or food due to people coming who have not RSVP’d. 

We are continuing to focus on “Choosing Kind” this school year.  This year we have added the focus that “We’re All Wonders.” This means that we are choosing kind because we appreciate how different we all are.   Please continue to reinforce with your child the importance of what they say to their peers. Words cannot be taken back, and so it’s incredibly important that we are teaching our students to think before they speak.  Please continue to talk to your child about that concept at home. This also applies for social media. If your child has any social media access, please be mindful of what they say on social media as it does leave a digital footprint that can’t be erased.

Thank you for your continued support, and don’t forget to reach out if you ever have any questions or concerns!

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong

Principal, Windemere CLC

October Principal's Message: Hi Families!

We are really flying through this school year. The end of the first grading period is Oct. 25th.  Report cards will come home around Nov. 6th. For parents of students in grades 2-5, don’t wait for interims and report cards to check your child’s progress.  You can do that every day using Home Access. If you aren’t familiar with Home Access, please call Mrs. Ake in the office and she will gladly help you get that set up.  For the month of October we kicked off Anti-Bullying Month by wearing blue shirts on Oct. 1st. We are celebrating our school theme that “We’re All Wonders” this year by embracing our differences and choosing to be kind.  On Oct. 24th, we are showing our support of Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink. Don’t forget that you can buy bracelets for $1 every Wednesday to support this cause as well.  

At any time if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher or myself.  We are here to help and we are committed to working together as a team to see each of your children grow and thrive!

Thank you,

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong
