Dear Silverhawk Families,

Welcome back to a new year at Windy ridge K-8, the proud home of our Silverhawk scholars! We hope this year is memorable for all of our students and families.   Our goal is to build a positive and meaningful learning environment for your child to support their success during their time here at WRK8.  Our school offers rich experiences that foster academic achievement and extracurricular opportunities, built through meaningful relationships.

As an International Innovation School we pride ourselves on four pillars of excellence; Citizenship, Language, Arts, and Science.

Citizenship – Our students will engage in leadership opportunities both in school and in the community to develop them into strong leaders of the future.  Students will engage in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations Member States through project-based learning in grades K-8.  Ultimately we would like for students to immerse themselves in multicultural experiences by traveling outside of the U.S. to experience and learn about other cultures and societies. 

Language – Our students will engage in second language acquisition in grades K-8 to build their skills as future global leaders.  Students will also explore multicultural literature as they learn about other cultures.

Arts- Students at WRK8 are able to explore their interests in both fine arts and performing arts.   Our fine arts department includes; dance, band, orchestra, strings, and general music offerings.

S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) -  Our students will engage in curricular and extracurricular S.T.E.M. opportunities during their time at Windy Ridge. Our S.T.E.M. programs are focused on Aeronautics and Aerospace Engineering along with  Agriculture and Mechanics. 
 
We know your student will have a comprehensive educational experience at Windy Ridge as they embrace these pillars and become the leaders of tomorrow.  In addition to these pillars of excellence, our students have opportunities to participate in extracurricular student organizations and sports including; soccer, volleyball, basketball, and track. 

We encourage each of our families to talk about how to get involved in our school this year in either curricular, extracurricular, sports, clubs, or parent organizations. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your child throughout the year please don’t hesitate to reach out to your classroom teacher or any of the student support staff including administration so we can help to support your child. Should you need anything please email [email protected] or call us at 407-296-5100. 

 I look forward to meeting all of our Silverhawk families and leading our school to another year of continued success! 

Sincerely,

Dr. Karena Chunoo
Proud Principal of Windy Ridge K-8
