Windmill Springs School's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
At this time Windmill Springs does not have a PTO or a PTA. If you are interested in starting up a PTO for our school please reach out to Mrs. Roussin. We would love to get it up and running again to support our students.
Windmill Springs School's Monthly Coffee with the Principal
Windmill Springs School hosts monthly parent meetings one Thursday a 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. If you have ideas you would like to hear about please email Mrs. Roussin.
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 will meet on Monday, September 24, December 3, February 25, and April 8 from 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm. To become a part of the School Site Council, submit an application to the front office.
The English Language Advisory Committee's purpose is to advise the school on how to support English Language Learners. Any parent can attend ELAC meetings to be better informed.
ELAC meetings are scheduled for Thursday, September 27, November 8, January 17, and March 14 from 8:20am-9:20 a.m. in the cafeteria.
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:
