Windmill Springs School's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Windmill Springs School's PTO is very active. Our current PTO president is Jackie Soto. The PTO does so much more than fundraise for school events, classroom supplies, and teacher appreciation. We are working to provide a sense of community and family involvement within the school. When you are involved, your child is involved and feels a sense of pride, ownership, participation, and community in his or her school. Stress the importance of education and community by joining the PTO and participating in events throughout the year. It is our goal to enhance the educational experience at Windmill Springs School in any way we can. We thank you for being involved and helping make all of this possible.
If you would like to become a member, please pick up a form from the front office. Please return the form to the front office or to your student's teacher.
Windmill Springs School's Monthly Coffee with the Principal
Windmill Springs School hosts monthly parent meetings on the Second Tuesday of the month from 8:20am and 9:20am. We want to make time for our parents and this is the perfect opportunity to hear school updates and meet with school administration. Each month, the school administration may include guest speakers or certain topics of discussion. Engage with us! We want to hear from you.
Windmill Springs School's Site Council
The School Site Council is a decision-making body made up of parents, community representatives, and school staff members. The School Site Council's primary responsibility is to oversee the funds the school receives under the School Improvement Program (SIP) act. The funds are designed to improve student performance as measured by standardized tests, the District's State & Federal Program, and classroom performance. The Council meets on the Second Wednesday of the September, November, February, and May from 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. To become a part of the School Site Council, submit an application to the front office.
Windmill Springs School's Volunteer Program
Helping in the classroom or around the school is a great way to stay involved and support our Windmill Springs School community. To volunteer in the classroom, please contact your student's teacher so a schedule can be arranged. The teacher will need to add your name in the volunteer log so your visit will be expected by the front office. Long term volunteers will need to be fingerprinted and TB tested. To visit your child’s classroom, please notify the teacher at least 24 hours in advance. To limit distractions to the educational environment, visits are limited to a maximum of 20 minutes per visit, unless otherwise warranted by the Principal. To volunteer around the school, please contact the front office. Here are just a few ideas of the kind of roles we need on a regular basis:
