Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year

Sep 23,2020

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. We are excited to have all of your students on campus and back into their learning routines. Thank you parents for working with your children to help them transition to the new norm for the time being – mask wearing, lots of hand washing, social distancing and small class sizes. The students are showing resiliency and are working hard to learn these new routines.

Some reminders to help the school year begin smoothly:

Read all emails from school and respond as needed.

Respond to all requests regarding updated health information for your child. 

Inform school if your child has been exposed to COVID-19 outside of school. 

Be on time for drop off and pick up to ensure a smooth arrival and departure for your child. 

Make sure your child has at least two clean masks at school daily. 

Make sure all personal items are labeled. 

Take your child’s temperature in the morning. Report any illness to the school doctors. 

Support all measures in place at school for everyone’s safety.

We look forward to a wonderful school year full of learning and fun! Please pass by anytime – we welcome any comments or suggestions.

Hello parents to the last week of learning! It feels so odd to be writing the word June and there are no kids in school to celebrate these last days. Many year groups will be planning for small events this week so please pay close attention to any emails from your child’s teachers. Next week we will be collecting all books that are checked out from the school and at that time you can pick up any remaining personal items belonging to your child.
We wish you a wonderful, calm and healthy summer! Thanks for all your support of school and in these challenging times staying engaged and supportive.

Best wishes for a wonderful summer.

Perseverance! This is where we are now in the final weeks of distance learning. It takes perseverance for parents, students, and teachers to make this final push towards the end of the academic school year. Please pay close attention to emails from coordinators regarding student participation and upcoming information for the end of the term.

Library books can be returned any time as well as we will be collecting materials that need to be returned to the school. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I know it’s an easy time to turn off and we are all being pulled in many directions, so please communicate if you are feeling overwhelmed or need assistance in any area. Thanks for your support and we wish you a wonderful week.

We are now entering May and spring is all around us. The sights and sounds of spring lead us to know there is still happiness and rejuvenation around us. This may be one of the most challenging times in our personal histories and our families are showing perseverance and courage in these times.  Trying to keep students engaged can be challenging at times. Please feel free to reach out to anyone here at Windrose Academy if you need assistance, advice or even just a friendly voice. We are here to support our famillies and we will all emerge a strong community after these trying times.

Happy Ramadan to all our Windrose community. We hope this month is a blessed month for all. We are now using our Ramdan schedules for online learning. This is an important time to keep your children on a structured day and keep them engaged in their learning this month.

 

A huge show of appreciation for our Windrose faculty and staff who have been keeping learning alive and meaningful. Parents have been true partners in this unchartered journey. Students will reap the benefits of everyone’s effort and work in partnership.

 

If you have questions about this month’s schedules, please let your teacher or coordinators know.

 

Have a wonderful week!

As we move into another week of e-learning, we hope you and your family are finding a routine that works best for you and your circumstances. It ie helpful for children to keep some sense of normalcy and calmness in these times.

One way to help ease fears is to talk with them about what is happening in the world from a factual point of view. I found this article very helpful especially for small children.

Talking about COVID with your child

Our teachers have been working nonstop to keep your children engaged with school and learning. The whole world is experiencing events like never before so we are all in a learning mode ourselves as well. We approach each day with children at the forefront of all decisions and what is best for them at these times. Please feel free to reach out if you need support.

Have a peaceful week.
