Works to collaborate with seven of our neighborhood schools: Harris Elementary, Blanton Elementary, Andrews Elementary, Bertha Sadler Means YWLA, Gus Garcia YMLA, LBJ High and Northeast High Schools. Its primary goal is to increase communication with our public schools and advocate for our neighborhood with AISD leadership. It recognizes teachers during teacher appreciation week and provides scholarships to graduating seniors. It also looks for volunteers in the community to provide tutoring or to present during career days at the schools. Members also participate on the Campus Advisory Committees of the schools in order to understand better what is happening in the schools and be more aware of opportunities for the neighborhood to be involved.

Our school’s committee meets every 4-6 weeks, and meetings are open to all Windsor Park residents. Please email us if you’d like to attend our next meeting.
