Calling all Learning Garden volunteers!

It’s time to start the school year with some garden cleanup! The main learning garden, native garden, and butterfly garden need a little extra love after enduring the summer months. Please come help us prep our garden beds and spruce up the butterfly garden. No experience needed, and no amount of time donated is too small!

Students can help until first bell; parents and other volunteers are welcome until we’re finished!

Your PTO is Hard at Work…

Every year Windermere Elementary School PTO provides many different resources, programs, and special events to benefit the students and staff at Windermere Elementary School. Our calendar is filled with activities for all grade levels. Please take a moment to review the information we’ve provided for you on this web site.

Remember, we are always in need of parents with enthusiasm and willingness to give. Please consider volunteering your time and talents to the PTO!

You can find the most recent information about what we’re working on in our news posts.

Coming in 2019-2020

  • With over $75,000 of investment we’ve funded a comprehensive renovation of the Media Center, the hub of Windermere Elementary School, to greatly improve its function as a multi-use space. This will be the single largest capital improvement we’ve ever undertaken and we think you will be amazed by the results!
  • We are evaluating maintenance and improvements to the school’s playgrounds.
  • We are continuing to investigate further potential landscaping improvements to enhance the school’s appearance and create a more welcoming environment for the students. The strip of ground behind the car rider benches is high on our list.
  • Investment in our well-received Learning Garden program continues. We will be working hard to enhance and expand the garden and further utilize it to enrich classroom activities. We want to add signage, fruit trees, and more tools to help with maintaining the garden!
  • So many of our most popular programs require a substantial amount of volunteer work every year in order to come together — from the organizational, design, and decorating work involved with the Mustang Daughters Dance to the classroom participation of our Arty Facts volunteers. These activities and events may now seem like a normal part of the WES experience but they only happen because of the constant effort of PTO volunteers.
