Walking Wednesdays!

September 3, 10, 17 & 24, October 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29

Change Your Way. Walk UA!

Why walk?
• Physical activity
• Teach safe walking skills to children
• Awareness of how walkable our community is and where improvements can be made
• Concern for the environment
• Reducing traffic congestion, pollution and speed near schools
• Sharing time with community parents and children
• **Earn a PJ Day! (see below for details)**

How do I participate in Walking Wednesdays?

You can meet at one of the four designated locations (on the back of this flyer) at the specified time, or join a group en route, or walk to school with your family. Or hop on your bike or scooter!

Bus rider? No problem! Have a parent take you to one of the four route starting points.

Our parent captains will escort you and your classmates safely to Windermere.

Receive a punch on your passport for each Wednesday you walk to school. (Passports will be distributed to each class on or before 9/2.)

Need more incentive? There are 9 "Walking Wednesdays" this fall. Every student who earns at least 6 punches on his/her passport will be rewarded with a **PAJAMA DAY!!** What could be better on a chilly day than coming to school in your comfy PJ's, slippers and robe? Walk your way to a PJ Day!!

Parents: After walking to Windermere on 9/3 and 10/1, please join us in front of the school to chat, have a cup of coffee, & grab a bite to eat. Walking Wednesdays are great for the whole community!!

Fall Family Fun Night

It was GREAT to see so many of our families Friday night at the annual PTO Fall Family Night! What a wonderful Windermere tradition. There was so much for the kids to do all evening, and can't thank our amazing PTO volunteers enough for their time, dedication and efforts for all that they do to put this community event together. The weather was perfect and what a great kick off for the season. Thank you to Crisi Acker and her co-chairs, Andra Gillum, Monica Moyer, Colleen O'Hara, Carol Allaire, and Michelle Hughes.

We would like to thank those who supported Fall Family Night:
• Huffman's Market donated all 500 hot dogs and buns.
• Kuhlwein Farm offer the hay bales and pumpkins at a great rate.
• Super Games provides inflatables at a deep discount.
• Giant Eagle covered $75 worth of food.
• Kroger donated a gift card of $45.
• Swan Cleaners donated $60 for the winners of the chili cook-off.
• Mr. Hudson, Mr. Kerstetter and Mr. Voldrich would provide campfire songs throughout the event.
• Our talented face-painters, Jason Howe and Brittney Burkey.
• Windermere parents and Hasting Middle Schools who volunteers their time and donated mums & firewood.

We also appreciate everyone who entered the Fall Family Night scarecrow and chili contests. The winners of our scarecrow contest were Teen-age Mutant Ninja Turtle (McCormick family), Darth Vader (Hudson family), and Darryl the Scarecrow (Skinner family). Congratulations to the winners of the chili cook-off: Teresa Petersen, McNair/ Drobny Duo and Patty Petersen. Not sure if they'll share their award-winning recipes!?!

We hope everyone who attended enjoyed the evening! It was a fun way to enjoy an evening as a school community and welcome in the fall season!

In addition, a special thanks to Jen Plahuta for another AMAZING book fair!!!
