Windermere Weekly Parent Update
Happy Monday, Windermere Families! I am so sorry there was a delay in getting this out to you over the weekend. I sure hope you had a terrific weekend. It finally felt like spring might actually be here to stay. What do you think? This is my favorite time of year. I love seeing the flowers and trees bloom, the smell of fresh cut grass and most importantly hearing and seeing everyone come out of hibernation! The sunshine certainly helps me to better choose my own weather!
Have a great start to the week, Windermere.
Below are updates for this week:
Third Grade Math AIR Testing
Secretary’s Day! We are so grateful for Ms. Maria’s smiling face each day, aren’t we?! Thank you for all that you do, Ms. Maria!

ESY peer advocates (Kathy Lawton)
We are trying to recruit peer models for our half-day ESY program. We think it would be very beneficial for students with and without special needs to participate in our classes. Unfortunately, we only have a handful of student student mentors currently signed up. Please feel free to share this opportunity with your staff and building parents.
