"WCSU will provide member districts with the leadership and resources to ensure a strong educational system for all students."

Welcome to Windham Elementary School!

The Windham Elementary School offers an inclusive, educational environment serving students in grades K-6. There are two classroom teachers; Sally Newton K-3, and Mickey Parker-Jennings, 4-6. Currently, we have 13 students enrolled 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”

    Fridays to the Kehoe’s pond was delightful. They hiked/walked up, and as soon as they arrived their Friday pizza was there. After pizza, milk and one cookie each they set out to catch polliwogs. Due to all this rain the edge of the pond was quite wet. One big plus to hunting critters with nets is the kids had to stay calm, walking and stalking with nets and had quite a bit of success. Sally and Mrs. Kehoe set up big containers for them to collect in. There was a limited amount of nets, and everyone was good about sharing.

    We hope you all enjoyed the concert. The kids work really hard. Sometimes they get so intent when they are singing or playing the ukuleles they forget to smile. Three years from when Sally started with the ukulele classes they are doing great.

    Wednesday, the 7th our fourth graders went on a field trip to the Bennington fish hatchery. Not the best time of year, because most of the fish have been stocked in rivers and lakes.  They were given a short online preview of what they would be seeing when they toured it (minus big fish). The people there said there were not many fish, but Jake said there were 40,000 in the first building they went into.

    Well, our sixth graders got a hint of what next year will be like when they had to be ready for the bus at seven on Wednesday.  Step-Up Day gives them a small clue of what school with the big kids will be like. Of course, right away some of the third graders wanted to know when they were going to get a day in Mr. PJ’s class. 

    Wednesday, June 14th. Sally’s class will be going to Billings Farm.   If they are not back in time for the bus, we will deliver your child home.

    Field Day, Thursday, June 15thThere will be water games so the kids need a change of clothes, or a bathing suit.

    Graduation is Thursday, June 15th at 6:00 PM.

    Friday, June 16th is singing at Valley Cares.

    Last day of school is Monday, June 19.  Picnic at Hapgood Pond. This is always a half day. Unless it is really cold, it will be rain or shine.

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

    Tonight (Friday) at the Farmer’s Market we will do the Maypole, weather permitting. There will also be some kids’ activities

    Saturday, June 3rd the upper class students will be performing at the Weston Playhouse. Students got to watch a preview at school Wednesday morning. Your child should be at the Playhouse by 12:45 on Saturday, if they are performing.

    The Spring Concert is Monday, June 5th at 6:30.  If parents want to bring fruit, cheese, or cookies we will provide the juice.

    Tuesday’s hot lunch of shepherd’s pie was a hit. It was excellent and when it got to kids wanting third’s they had to run it by the teachers first. Each week more of the kids count on pizza on Friday and come in hungry.   Chris from West Townshend has got it down to cucumber slices which make a nice side veggie.

    Move up day at Leland and Gray will be on June 7. Mr. PJ and the sixth graders will spend the entire day there.

    The Walkathon date is set for Thursday, June 8 in the morning. This is their PE class for that day. We have sent home pledge forms so kids can start raising money for Heifer International. We will have popsicles for them when they get back.

    Friday, June 9th.  We head to Springfield Rec for swimming. Back to school for pizza at lunchtime. Then the plan is to have a bicycle, scooter, and perhaps skateboard fun time out in the driveway. There will be a course set up for going safely up the driveway and back around to prevent confusion and accidents.  Kids will need to wear helmets

    Wednesday, June 14th. Sally’s class will be going to Billings Farm.   She would like to make it a day with students and parents. They will participate in two programs, one about trees and the other about how horses and oxen were used in early times. She wants to leave school at 8:20 and return around 4PM. It will be a full day and she is looking for a couple of parents who can drive and act as chaperones at the museum and farm. Please let Sally know if you can help with this.

    Field Day, Thursday, June 15thThere will be water games so the kids need a change of clothes or a bathing suit.

    Graduation is Thursday, June 15th at 6:00
