Winters Elementary – Principal Greg Moffitt “At Winters Elementary School, Back-to-School time has given us an opportunity to celebrate and build community. Before the school year started, the Rotary Club of Winters, the Winters Combined Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the High School Football Team, and other community members joined together for a Family Work Day that helped transform our school. When our community comes together, our schools and students benefit. We welcome community volunteers and encourage you to join our PTA or become one of our Reach Out And Read (ROAR) readers to listen to students read. “Back-to-School time also provides an opportunity to celebrate and connect with our students. Each day this year, we are making a Good News Call of the Day to let families know how lucky we are to teach their children. Each week, we also recognize students for demonstrating our school motto of “Working hard; Always being kind; Valuing others; and Expecting the best!” And each month, on the last Friday, we have special spirit days that bring our school community together. Our first one is Friday, Aug. 31, and it will be a chance to celebrate Identity Day. Students and staff will have an opportunity to show off who they are and what they love to do by wearing whatever describes their identity.” Winters Middle School – Principal John Barsotti “At Winters Middle School, we’ve been focused on students, families, and connecting them with technology since day one. Since the start of school, we’ve checked out well over 300 chromebooks to students and their families. We’re working hard to get technology into the hands of students and utilizing it to transform their learning. “In addition, we are working to support our English Learners with new courses. This year, we have six new English Language Development courses that will help our students learn English and meet their language needs. “We are also working to support our parents and are sponsoring the Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) again this year. Classes begin Wednesday, Sept. 5 from 6-7:30 p.m. and run for eight weeks. PIQE is a great program that helps families have conversations with their students about being successful in school and considering post-secondary options. Please contact the school if you’d like to sign up. “We invite families to our Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, Aug. 29 from 6-7:30 p.m. to meet our teachers. Starting at 5:15 p.m., Music Boosters and Outdoor School will host fundraisers and WMS spirit wear, yearbooks and student body cards will be for sale.” Winters High School – Principal Nicole Reyherme “It has been a wonderful start to a new school year at Winters High School! The halls have come to life with the hustle and bustle of student activity. “2018-2019 is looking to be one of the most spirited as our ASB students have worked hard to create school pride and friendly competition throughout our school. Fridays are spirit days and everyone is encouraged to wear their red and white. “With a yearlong class competition in place (and an end of the year BBQ at stake), the halls have never been redder! “We are gearing up for Back to School Night on Wednesday, Sept. 5 where our clubs will be on display and our classrooms will be open for parent visits, followed that Friday, Sept. 7, by our first home game at our updated stadium with new lighting and seating. We hope that you can join the Red Zone and support our team. Go Warriors!”]]>
