February is Heart Healthy Month at The Windward School. Windward celebrates Get Fit February annually with several activities on each campus to increase awareness about the importance of a heart-healthy lifestyle. This year, students raised money for American Heart Association.
Manhattan Lower School
The academic curriculum at the Manhattan Lower School campus mirrors the Windward program at the Westchester Lower School campus. All faculty members receive the same expert instruction and training from the The Windward Institute, which has a facility in the Manhattan building as an annex to the main location in White Plains.
While we enjoy hosting visitors and showing them our building and our program, currently, we are only able to direct you to the virtual tour or encourage you to register for an info session and download an application.
Each year, the Windward Parents Association generously sponsors author/illustrator visits for Windward students. This year, Evan Turk visited middle school students on February 19, and Mac Barnett visited lower school students on February 23.
Lunar New Year celebrated across Asia and around the globe, and second-grade students learned about the holiday's history and the traditions associated with the holiday.
Across all campuses, Windward teachers acknowledged World Read Aloud Day by inviting authors for a virtual presentation encompassing a read aloud of one of their books plus Q&A time with the students.
