The WES PTO is organizing the annual teacher appreciation luncheon scheduled for Thursday, May 16th, 2019. 

To help cover classrooms so teachers can enjoy the luncheon together, please sign up here. We are in need of at least 14 volunteers and as many as 28 people just to cover the classrooms. Thank you to the five volunteers who have already signed up! Please consider assisting with this special event to recognize the efforts of our staff. 
Thoughts On Stewardship and Self-Direction 

This fall, the WCUD School Board approved five characteristics for the Profile of a Graduate of Windsor Central Schools. The traits are (in no particular order) academic excellence, self-direction, stewardship, skillful communication, and critical problem solving. As we think about how to introduce these traits to our elementary students, the ideas of stewardship and self-direction come to mind as things parents can be encouraging at home. In our WES preK classroom, three and four year olds have self-directed choice time where they have access to a wide variety of learning opportunities and they choose what to play and when they want to have snack. In grades K-6, we are preparing for an Earth Day clean up, practicing stewardship for our school and community. If you are looking for inspiration at home, here are some ideas of ways children can be self-directed stewards at home: 



  • Summer SOAK sessions are now up on the website so that you can sign up.
  • Health and registration forms are also on the website.  Please complete those prior to registration so that the process of registration goes easier for you.  You can send it all in now.
  • Credit cards are accepted this year for payment for Summer SOAK.  Parents have asked for this for years and we are finally able to do this.  You will see this option on the registration page of the website.
  • A Summer SOAK Fundraiser is being planned for the first Saturday in June.  We would like to offer the community a water park similar to the one we have for our Summer SOAKers with even bigger water slides.  If you are interested in helping with the planning and day of the event, please email us at

  • Remember, registration is not complete until we have your health forms, registration form and payment.
