Dear Windsor Middle School Parents,

The 2016-2017 school year has arrived!  I hope that your summer was relaxing and your family was able to spend valuable time together.

My name is Karl Shininger, and I am the Windsor Middle School Principal.  I have been very fortunate to serve the Windsor C-1 School District as a teacher, coach, and curriculum coach.  In addition to my time at Windsor, I have also worked in the Jefferson R-VII and Festus R-VI school districts.  Although I grew up in northwest Ohio, my wife and I have been living in Jefferson County for the past eight years.   We have a two children and one on the way.

Our district mission is to inspire all students to develop a vision within themselves and become contributing members of society, by providing excellent educational opportunities founded on the fundamentals of a caring family, school and community.  We take our role in carrying out the district’s mission seriously and hope to work closely with you to help your child become the best that they can be.

Windsor Middle School has adopted a code of conduct which will be incorporated into many aspects of our daily activities.

I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor will I tolerate anyone who does.

I will treat everyone with dignity and respect.

I will not bully others, nor will I tolerate anyone who does.

I will leave every situation better than I found it.

I realize that there are consequences to my actions.

I will accept those consequences.

I will not blame others for the consequences that result from my actions.

I will look to encourage and help others in all situations.


I am very excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to meeting you and your child.  If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  If you see me at activities or events, please don’t be shy.  Come up to me and say hello!



Karl Shininger, Ed.S.
