The Principal's Corner

Dear Winding Springs Community,

It is an honor to join the Winding Springs community as Principal. In the coming days and weeks I look forward to engaging with key members of our school community. I look forward to developing relationships with each of you and becoming integrated into this special community. 

During this transitional time, my primary commitment is to get to know the Winding Springs community and for you to get to know me. Trusting relationships will serve as the foundation of our work in the future. I hope to learn more about your hopes for the future as well as how you hope to see our school continue to grow in the coming year. Your perspectives will help me understand where our school has been and where it should go in the future. 

Given the uncertain times we find ourselves in, your input is even more important. As I work to get to know our school, I also hope to learn more about your experiences this spring with distance learning. It is important that I understand the needs of our community during these times so that we can plan for whatever the future may hold. 

The plan that follows details my commitments for getting to know the school and each of you. It includes the key actions I will take in the coming months.There are opportunities for me to meet with community members one on one, in small groups and through community survey opportunities. Please know that all meetings and information shared will be held in confidence. I encourage you to be as candid as possible in these opportunities so that I can get a full picture of Winding Springs to chart our path forward. 

I am grateful for the opportunity to build your trust in me. Please know that I am always here to answer questions. You can expect me to communicate openly, honestly and be responsive to any needs you have. 

Please feel free to contact me through email (, phone (980.343.5140), or set up an individual meeting with me at 

In partnership,

Katharine Bonasera
