Welcome Back to School

Windermere PTA would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning Mustangs. We look forward to a wonderful school year and are excited to have you on our team!

Our calendar is a good guide to the important events that help us kick off the school year. Please take a moment to review the important dates and add them to your phone or personal calendar. Did you know you can add our calendar directly to your Google or Outlook calendar to always keep up-to-date on school and PTA events?

We are always in need of parents with enthusiasm and a willingness to give — please consider volunteering your time and talents. Orange County Public School’s volunteer program is called ADDitions. Every parent must be pre-approved to volunteer at the school. Please apply today at ocps.net.

Join us on Thursday, August 16th at 9:00 am in the cafeteria for our ADDitions Volunteer Coffee to discover more about our programs and volunteer opportunities.
