Another award for Lake Windward!
This week I received a letter from the Governor's Office of Student Achievement. The letter states that Lake Windward ES has earned the Platinum Award in the Greatest Gains category for exhibiting high growth in student achievement, meaning our academic growth over the last three years has been in the top 1% of schools in the state. In addition, we also earned a Gold Award in the Highest Performing category for exhibiting high academic performance, meaning that our overall achievement over the last three years has been in the top 3% of schools in the state.
The letter goes on to say that we are one of only 29 schools in the state to receive the 2016 Platinum award for Greatest Gains and one of 26 schools in the state to receive the 2016 Gold award for Highest Performing.
I am incredibly proud of our school community and your dedication to our students. This kind of success doesn't happen unless students, staff and parents, are onboard and committed to high levels of learning for all students.
We will be receiving a banner to hang in our school soon showcasing these achievements. We have already received certificates that will be displayed once we get our new display cases.

Lake Windward earns top CCRPI score for elementary schools!
The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) released the results for the 2016 College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), including the scores for Fulton County Schools. Two schools in the county were mentioned specifically for "exceeding the bar" – Lake Windward Elementary and North View High School – with scores of 100.4 and 101.2 respectively. Superintendent Jeff Rose said, "I'm encouraged that so many of our schools continue to excel, in particular the two schools that earned perfect scores."
Mrs. Julie Morris congratulates the students and staff for having the top CCRPI score for elementary schools in the district, and the second highest score in the district for all schools. Way to go, Lake Windward!
