The News Semester Brings New Changes

Dear Families,

Welcome to 2018! January has been quite a ride. The New Year brought two additional students, with a third arriving later this week. Campus has been busy as students completed semester one, began semester two, continued training daily on hill, as well as competing locally and afar.

Stepping into the classroom as students were finishing semester one was like walking into a factory running on overtime. I could practically see their brains churning and steam coming out of their heads! Kids focused with a common goal……just love it! For our seniors, they’re entering the last semester of their high school experience. We have nine seniors to say goodbye to in April. That’s a milestone to celebrate.

Senior parents, graduation in April 25, 2018 at Timberline Lodge. I’ll have more information in the next few weeks but, check the date…. you’ll be busy that day!

Our head life coach, Donovan, is moving on to a great adventure. He will be a head skateboard coach for one of the Chinese Olympic skateboard teams and is moving on to China! Brandon Sorel, a former life coach at Windells, has taken over for Donovan. Brandon has an established relationship with Windells, and our kids appear to like and respect him.

How does a summer term sound? Our academy now has a three-month summer term beginning May 7th and ending August 3rd, as well as a shortened summer term from June 18th to August 3rd. Not only that, Windells Academy has expanded the horizon and will be introducing aviation to our roster of disciplines.

Working with Hillsboro Aero Academy, we are offering a summer aviation program from June 17 to August 3rd, as well as a new aviation program beginning next fall. Students now can become a certified pilot by the time they graduate from high school. If you know any prospective students, please pass on the information. The information is also on our Windells Academy web page.

Thank you again for trusting Windells with your precious students.

Sincerely yours,
Ann Scott, Headmaster
