2023-2024 BACK-TO-SCHOOL

August 1, 2023

Winship Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 academic year at Winship Middle School! I am thrilled to serve as your principal and look forward to an incredible year of learning, growth, and success together. Whether you are a returning student or joining us for the first time, I extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you.

At Winship, we believe in providing a nurturing and inclusive environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our dedicated team of educators is committed to fostering a love for learning and helping students reach their full potential. As we embark on this new school year, I want to emphasize the significance of a positive and respectful school culture. We expect all members of our school community to treat one another with kindness, empathy, and respect. By fostering a safe and inclusive environment, we can create a space where everyone feels valued and supported.

Please note the daily schedule for students (8:40 am to 3:31 pm) with the exception of Mondays for teacher collaboration (8:40 am to 2:28 pm). You may reference the enclosed bell schedule for start and end times.

Please take note of some specific dates to keep in mind over the next few weeks:

August 17th - 6th Grade Back-to-School Meet and Greet (1:00-3:30): If you are unable to come at your scheduled time, please call the office for further direction.

August 18th - 7/8 Grade Back-to-School Meet and Greet (12:00-3:00): If you are unable to come at your scheduled time, please call the office for further direction.

I hope that you will take every opportunity to become involved with our Winship School Community, through volunteering in a variety of ways such as: joining our PTSA, School Site Council, ELAC, or attending and supporting school events. Please “Like” and “Follow” the Winship Middle School Facebook page to receive updates regarding upcoming events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child's education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.

I am privileged to be a part of this school community. It is the people that help to make Winship Middle School a wonderful place! When school and family work as partners towards the same goal, every child will succeed. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to schedule an appointment with me through our school secretary to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you would like to share to help make this school year great!


Kristi Puzz, Principal
