Showcasing Our Schools: The Windsor Way at Windsor High

I've been highlighting a school each week in my blog, and this week it is Windsor High's turn.  On my recent visit to WHS, I spoke to teachers, students and administrators and heard about the Windsor Way. What is the Windsor Way?  See for yourself by watching the video below.  Go Dukes!

Showcasing Our Schools: GREAT Students and GREAT Staff at Hardy Elementary

A few weeks ago I started a series of blogs where I highlight one of our schools each week.  So far, I've featured Carrsville Elementary, Georgie Tyler Middle and Windsor Elementary.  This week is Hardy's turn.  I recently visited Hardy Elementary and got to speak to the students and teachers, and even a retired teacher who comes back to volunteer.  There is so much positive energy everywhere you turn.  It is contagious! I have a video of my visit and I challenge you to watch it and not smile.  (I don't think you can do it.)    So see for yourself why it's always a GREAT day at Hardy.

Showcasing Our Schools: A Family Atmosphere at Windsor Elementary School

For this week's blog, I visited Windsor Elementary School, home of the Hornets.  I had an awesome time talking to the students and teachers and hearing from them what makes Windsor Elementary such a great school.

I also got to witness an amazing event.  Students from Georgie Tyler Middle School built a Reading Cottage for WES.  They held a special ceremony where they unveiled their final project.  The elementary students were excited to see their incredible new reading place and eager to start using it. Just see for yourself in the video and hear the reaction from the students.

Showcasing Our Schools: A Visit to our Newest School--Georgie D. Tyler Middle School

Last week I visited Georgie D. Tyler Middle School.  Opening in 2014, GTMS is our newest school, and it is a beautiful building with spacious hallways and lots of natural light. But a school is only as good as its students and staff, which is why Georgie Tyler is GREAT!  As I visited classrooms,  I could see teachers using the instructional framework in their lessons, and I saw engaged students who understood the what and why of their learning.  I had a wonderful time at GTMS.  I've put together a brief video of my trip to the school so you can see for yourself what makes Georgie Tyler so special.
