Our PTA wants to provide fun and further enrich the education and health of all students and families of Windsor. School administration has oversight over any PTA activity held at Windsor School.
- BIRTHDAY BOOKS. A gift to every student from PTA on (or around) their birthday. Students visit the main office to choose a book of their very own to take home and enjoy!
- JUNIOR GREAT BOOKS. Small reading group discussions lead by volunteer parents. For students who enjoy reading, practicing critical thinking and learning about other cultures.
SUPPORTING THE Arts
- AUTHOR VISIT & CULTURAL ARTS PRESENTATION. Each year our PTA strives to further enrich student learning by funding a unique, all school assembly presentation(s) in partnership with our school.
- REFLECTIONS ART PROGRAM. A yearly art competition with a unique theme selected by the National PTA. Local Unit Reps (as part of the Reflections Committee) advertise the program and theme, rules of entry, guidelines and collect/package student projects for delivery to council for judging. Students are recognized and projects may advance beyond council to region, state, or national.
- DANCE PARTY. Annual dance party typically in late January (about the time when cold weather is making us antsy). Sensory friendly time precedes the the main dance to offer a more relaxed option. The theme is determined by the Dance Party Committee and school administration determines the start time/duration.
- ACTIVITY NIGHTS. Separate one-hour activity nights for our youngest Wildcats in kindergarten and 1st grade. Theme and format is determined by separate grade-level committee chairs.
- HALLOWEEN & VALENTINE CLASSROOM PARTIES. Supported through Room Rep in their beginning-of-year organization; each classroom party is planned (w/ teacher blessing) and delivered by parent volunteers.
