Good Evening Families,

Safe Delivery This link will take you to the instructions that we provided at the beginning of the year regarding the expectations for how our cars need to move in the AM and PM in the parking lot.  Please read them over to ensure that you are meeting our expectations.  If you do not pick up your child, please print this off and give it to the person who does.  Next week is the last week for the canned food drive.  The class with the most items will earn an extra recess.  This collection will go towards families in need in the Greater Akron area, so thank you in advance for your donations!  We are off on Nov. 27th - Nov. 29th for Thanksgiving, and Winter Break is December 23rd - January 6th.  There are a lot of fun events coming up between now and then so make sure that you are checking book bags nightly!

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Lee

Good Evening Everyone,

This is Mrs. Lee with your Friday evening email.  Thank you to everyone who came out for our Book Tasting event last night!  It was so nice to see all of you.  Next week, on Thursday the 14th, we have our monthly PTA meeting at 6:00pm.  We hope to see a lot of you there!  Picture re-take day has been scheduled for Nov. 20th.  A flyer will come home shortly.  Please donate whatever you can to our canned food drive!  The class with the most canned goods will earn an extra recess.  Students need to come to school wearing a coat, and hopefully gloves, now that the weather has turned cold.  With the time turned back as well, please do not drop students off before 7:50am.  There is no supervision outside, and it's too dark and unsafe for the children to be on the playground.  Make sure that you are reading nightly and checking book bags too.  We are well into the 2nd grading period already, and we want all students at Windemere to be successful!

Thank you,

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong

Good Evening Families,

This is Mrs. Lee with your Friday evening email.  Our pictures came today!  Thank you again for your patience.  We also kicked off our canned food drive today!  It will run until November 22nd.  The class that collects the most canned goods or non-perishable items will receive an extra recess. Remember that there is no school on Tuesday, Nov. 4th.  On Nov. 7th, we will have our Book Tasting event!  It's from 5:00-6:30.  You will be served three books to read and review, and then each Windemere student will also receive a book to take home!  We will serve a light meal of pizza to top off this fun event, so please put it on your calendar and come.  Please check book bags, because students who do not have an emergency card on file for the 2019-2020 school year have the instructions in their book bags for how to go online and fill it out.  All emergency cards have to be completed online.  Beginning on Tuesday, 11-5, any student without their emergency card filled out will miss recess until it gets completed.   Lastly, please make sure to walk in your child if he/she is coming to school after 8:30am.  They must be signed in to our office by an adult.  

Have a great weekend everyone!

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong

Good evening families, this is Mrs. Lee with your Friday evening email.  Thank you for doing a much better job of not parking in the pickup lane at dismissal!  We are able to mostly clear our lot by 2:40 every day when everyone follows that simple protocol.  I want to apologize for the delay in getting your school pictures.  This has never happened to us before.  Lifetouch is having production issues, and that's why we don't have our pictures yet.  Thank you for your patience.  Make sure that you have the Third Grade Guarantee meetings on your calendar.  Come to one at 9:00 or at 5:00 on Oct. 23rd.  This is for all families with children in grades KG-3rd grade.  Don't forget to wear pink on Oct. 24th to show your support for breast cancer awareness!  Our Halloween festivities are on the 25th.  The parade will be at 1:15.  A letter should've already come home.  

Have a great weekend, and we will see you on Monday!

This is Mrs. Lee with your Friday evening email.  In case you haven't heard yet, we are going to have to reschedule our picture retake day.  Lifetouch has experienced some technical issues with getting our pictures printed.  We will send out that date ASAP. 

We have noticed that students are not waiting outside of Door #10 any longer in the mornings, so we will not open those doors. Students can continue to come in Door #1 or come in and eat breakfast. 

Lastly, please remember that there is NO PARKING in the lane closest to our sidewalks with the white painted lines.  This is causing people to get stuck in a long line while a parked car sits.  All of us are here for the same reason, and we need to model good behaviors for our students.  Cars that continue to violate this rule will no longer be permitted in that lane and will be forced to park and walk to the door.  If you are having a grandparent or family friend pick up your child, please share this rule with them as well. 

Some upcoming events: October 23 is the 3rd Grade Guarantee meeting.  This is for all families with students in KG-3rd grade.  It's an informational meeting regarding the 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee.  On Oct. 24th, all students are encouraged to wear pink.  You student may be out of uniform if he/she is wearing pink.  Don't forget that pink bracelets are still being sold for $1 every Wednesday during lunch.  Our Halloween parties and parade are on the 25th.  Students may wear jeans and a brown or orange fall festival or Halloween shirt that day.  Information about the parade and lunch time protocol will be coming soon.  

Have a phenomenal weekend!

Mrs. Lee-Wilfong

Good Evening Families,

The teachers and I enjoyed an amazing day today during our many professional development sessions, but we sure did miss the kids!  We are eager to see them again on Monday.  Coming up next week, the PTA Walk-A-Thon is on Oct. 11th.  If you did not yet send in your money, you can up until and on the very day of the event.  Your child will just not also get the prizes on the 11th.  They will get them at a later date.  Looking ahead - picture re-take day is Oct. 15th.  The end of the first marking period is October 18th.  Two informational meetings regarding the Third Grade Reading Guarantee will be held on Oct. 23rd.  They will be at 9:00am and again at 5:00pm.  Any parent with a student in grades KG-3rd grade should attend in order to learn the required information regarding this law.  We will have our Halloween festivities on Oct. 25th.  PTA will hold their Halloween Boo Bash the following week on Nov. 1st.

That's all for now.  Enjoy the long weekend, and we will see you on Monday!

Mrs. Lee



This is Mrs. Lee with your Friday evening email.  Thank you to everyone who came up for Interim Pick-ups on the 26th.  All students should have their interims a this time.  The PTA Book Fair has been an amazing success.  Last chance buyers can bring money on Monday morning for a brief period of time before it all has to be closed down.  On October 1st, we will wear blue shirts to support Anti-Bullying.  Students may wear any type of blue shirt, but they must be in uniform on the bottom.  Beginning October 2nd, and continuing every Wednesday until we run out, Mrs. Crawford will be selling pink breast cancer awareness bracelets for $1 during lunch.  There is no school on October 4th.  It's a professional development day for the teachers.  On October 24th, we will all wear pink to show our school-wide support of breast cancer awareness.  They need to be in uniform on the bottom for this event as well.  On October 25th, we will have our Halloween festivities here at school.  Stay tuned for more information.  In case you didn't know, United Way sponsors a 2-1-1 call line for any residents of Akron who are in need of assistance with shelter, food, transportation or other support services.  That number is in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  That's all for now.  Have an outstanding weekend!
