The Windham Elementary School offers an inclusive, educational environment serving students in grades K-6.  Currently, we have 9 students enrolled in K-6.  Mickey Parker-Jennings is the school principal and full-time teacher.


The school’s academic programs are closely aligned with Vermont’s Framework of Standards, the Common Core State Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards. These programs are supported by numerous activities and learning opportunities. In addition, the multi-age groupings provide frequent occasions to learn from peers, both older and younger. The small student body allows for more personal attention and academic support for the students.


 As a school community, we strive to create an atmosphere which encourages acceptance, respect, and caring, while teaching students to become responsible citizens in today’s world.

    Habits of Mind: “Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to Learn”


    Ivy’s winning model clay and toothpick structure and freshly baked pumpkin seeds from our carving of pumpkins last week!


    Outdoor Adventure


    Ms. Sally and Mr. B will return to Windham Elementary School on THIS Monday, October 26th to continue their Outdoor Adventure class with the students. Looking at the weather, we will have some rain showers on Monday, please be sure your student comes to school with appropriate clothing (i.e. rain jackets and boots) for that afternoon. This past Monday, the students worked on their outdoor plots and also did some leaf identification. Do you know the difference between a red maple and a sugar maple leaf? Ask your students to identify the two leaves below!


    Snow Days


    Since the onset of the Covid virus, schools around the country have found that teaching remotely, although certainly not ideal, can continue to keep the education of our students moving along. Therefore, it has been determined by the WCSU district that snow days will be REMOTE learning days this year and not days off from school. 


    Ms. Sara and Mr. PJ will reach out to families via emails in the morning on snow days with a check-in email that will provide information on what each of your students should work on during that day. In order for your student to be marked as present for attendance on the snow day, we will need to receive a response back to the email that is sent. No response back from the email, your student will be marked absent for the day.


    Canvas Still Needed


    As the students finish their outdoor classroom lean-to, we are in search of anyone that might have and would be interested in donating a canvas that we can add to the outside of the lean-to. The canvas that is being asked for is the type that teepees/tents use for weatherproofing.

    Monarch Release! 


    On Friday last week we had our first three monarch butterflies emerge from their chrysalis! Then the remaining 7 butterflies were waiting for us on Tuesday morning when we arrived at school. Due to the rainy weather on Tuesday, we were unable to release them, so Ms. Sara took them home to release them at her house on our remote learning day. With the warmer days few and far between, we wanted to make sure that they were released sooner than later to give them the best chances of starting their journey south. 


    The students were able to identify the differences between a female butterfly and a male butterfly by noticing the thinner veins and black spots on the male vs no spots and thicker veins on the female. See photo sample below!
