Hello all WES Family and Friends!!
It's going to be a great year at Windsor Elementary School. I look forward to seeing the students and families as we celebrate the start of the 2016-17 school year. The maintenance department has been busy this summer painting the entire school, as well as waxing and cleaning all of the floors to get our school ready for the teachers and students to return. We are going to be "Digging Deeper" into learning this year and it is an exciting time to be a student in IWCS!!! We also have a new reading series for grades K-2 through American Reading Company. Open House will be held on September 1 from 2--7 pm. This is a great opportunity to meet your child's teacher. Kindergarten screening will take place on August 25 9 am-1 pm.
Here are a few reminders that will help with making a smooth transition back into the school routine:
The mission of Isle of Wight County Schools and Windsor Elementary School is to prepare our 21st century learners for educational excellence. WES teachers and staff are more than prepared to meet this challenge head on as we guide students toward achieving academic success and encourage critical thinking, problem solving skills, and positive character traits along the way.
Remember, your child’s academic success takes teamwork and my door is always open to make sure that it happens. We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure a productive and safe learning environment that promotes the highest levels of student success.
Mrs. Ellen Couch, Ed.S.
IWCS has zero-tolerance for bullying and all of our schools are bully-free zones. As educators, we play a critical role in ensuring that our children are learning in a safe and healthy environment. As community members, it is our duty to stand up and speak up against bullying. I encourage anyone that is being bullied or has witnessed a bullying incident to notify an adult immediately or contact our School Information Tip (S.I.T.) line by calling 757-357-0908.
As always, my door is open, and I encourage you to give me a call if you have any questions. Thank you for your support.
