Welcome to Windfern’s 2018-19 School Year!
Students and parents, my faculty and staff join me in extending our warmest welcome to you as we begin our new school year! My name is Martha Strother, and it is my distinct pride to serve as your principal. I look forward to getting to know you, our future graduate, and your parents who are supporting you in that pathway. Windfern School of Choice is excited about the new opportunities we have to build relationships with students and to help them find their way to the graduation stage.
Windfern’s Campus Culture of Cohesiveness
From Windfern’s beginning in 1995, our school was designed to be a small-size campus for the purpose of providing highly individualized attention for students. Because of this, we are at a distinct advantage in keeping our school safe and secure. With only 300 students, we are able to keep our finger on the pulse of our student population and to recognize concerns as they develop. We routinely train our students in a safety pledge, asking them to be our eyes and ears in helping us to be proactive with any possible concerns. We continuously guide our students with “If you see or hear something, say something.”
Getting to know our students in meaningful ways is our most reliable way of ensuring that they will feel comfortable enough to share safety concerns with us. From the first day of school, we work to create a sense of belonging for each student. Our students need to know that they matter, and that they each have a meaningful place in our school learning community, and that more importantly, their time with us will leave a lasting memory. Our students validate our efforts with them when they describe us as a family more than a school. That makes it all worthwhile!
Bottom line, the campus culture we have built at Windfern is, in fact, the foundation of our safety and security. However, there is so much more that we rely on to ensure that our students are safe and secure.
Here Are the Security Measures We Have Had In Place All Along
Here’s What We Must Put In Place In Today’s World Because We Love Our Students
In today’s world we must do more than we ever have. Change is hard, but we must respond to our current reality with layers of diverse measures. No single measure of security is enough.
In closing, we look forward to many joyful moments with you, our students! Believe it or not, we learn as much from you as you learn from us! We have so much to be thankful for because you chose to apply to Windfern. Just remember during your time with us, that you must keep the fighting spirit of “Whatever It Takes” in everything you do, especially safety, all day, every day!
