Todd M. Armelin, PrincipalGreetings Winship Elementary Parents and Students!
Welcome to a new and exciting school year! I hope you had a wonderful summer break, filled with opportunities to learn and grow. The staff is thrilled that each parent has entrusted his/her child’s education to us. We will make every effort to help your child achieve academically and socially. It is our goal to create an enriched, learning environment that engages each student. Of course, we need and welcome your support and cooperation. You play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore, school/parent communication is vital.
Winship Elementary has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge. The staff is dedicated to providing a safe, compassionate community of lifelong learners who are scholars, creators, critical thinkers, and problem solvers. We believe high expectations yield academic excellence for all students.
As the leader of our Winship Family, I strongly believe that every child can learn and achieve the highest level of academic success with proper preparation and support. To ensure a successful school year please:
1. Make your child’s prompt attendance to school a priority - INSTRUCTION BEGINS PROMPTLY AT 7:55 AM DAILY.
2. Expect homework Monday through Friday, and projects on a regular basis.
3. Allot time for reading and practicing basic math facts with your child on a nightly basis.
4. Return all requested forms and documents to school in a timely manner.
Our instructional program will be far more effective with your active participation. Your presence is not only welcomed; it is greatly needed! My staff and I look forward to working with each and every one of you. Together we will make this an outstanding school year!Welcome to the Home of the Wildcats!
Brenda Kieso - Assistant Principal
Welcome to Winship! My name is Mrs. Kieso, and I am so excited to be part of the Winship family! This is my 23rd year in education and I started my career at Twin Creeks Middle School teaching Theatre Arts. I have been in administration for the past 13 years. Being a part of Winship is like “coming home”. In fact, many Winship parents are my former students, making their children my GRANDstudents! What FUN! All three of my own children got a great educational foundation at Winship and still love to come visit!
I am passionate about kids, and committed to doing what is right for them! Please don't hesitate to call, or email if you have any concerns, questions, comments, or brags. I would love to hear from you! Working together is the only way we can provide the best learning opportunities for "our" kids!
