Direct Donation Drive

Hello Windy Ridge Families,


Next week is the start of the PTA fundraiser!  Due to Covid19, fundraising will look very different this year and your support is more important than ever. Did you know that nearly all of the money raised for PTA goes directly back into Windy Ridge staff and academics?  We are starting our fundraising efforts with this direct donation drive so that we can fund the following essential items:

  • Academic Support: Science, STEM, Literacy, and Spanish
  • Visual and Performing Arts: Music, Strings, Band, Drama, Art
  • Health and Well Being: Clinic supplies, Guidance, and Physical Education
  • Teacher Mini Grants: such as flexible seating, webcams, innovative curriculum

We are kindly asking for a $10.00 donation per student.  It is our hope by keeping the contribution at $10.00 per student that we have 100% participation.  If you are able to make a higher contribution, this would allow us to put money into student reward programs like Sunshine State books & the Hawk store, classroom/grade level parties, school beautification and add additional funds to mini-grants. As the year continues, we hope other support opportunities such as Spirit Gear and a Silent Auction, will be available.  Your contributions now will allow us to continue supporting teacher and student needs as the year goes on.

To make it fun, next week students have the opportunity to participate in the following School Spirit Days:

Monday September 28th – Friday October 2nd

Your child can participate virtually or face to face.

  • Monday, September 28th Hat Day
  • Tuesday, September 29th Crazy Sock Day
  • Wednesday, September 30th Wacky Clothes Day
  • Thursday, October 1st Theme Park Day
  • Friday, October 2nd Pajama Day

PTA Meetings

PTA 2020-2021 Meetings

Hello Windy Ridge Families!
              This year we will be conducting our PTA meetings via Zoom. Hopefully, at some point we will be able to meet again in person, but for now we will be virtual. Each month we will be offering both a morning and an evening meeting. The morning meetings will involve PTA business and school updates. Our evening meetings will be mostly PTA and school updates, with a little business as necessary, and we are planning to hold a Round Table discussion on a variety of topics. As we get our Round Table discussions organized, we will post the topics in the PTA Newsletter.
              Because we are using Zoom, you will need to register ahead of time for the meetings. Once you register once, you do not need to register again for each meeting. If you have any questions or feedback please feel free to email us at
