"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”

     

     

    Mr. PJ has been advised by the superintendent to remind you all that picture taking at the end of the year picnic should only be done with permission from the people you are taking pictures of.  Some students, as well as some adults, may not want to or be allowed to be photographed.  If you do get permission to take a picture, please ask if the subjects are okay with that picture being shared, if you plan to post it to some sort of social media.  Thank you for considering others if you plan to take any pictures at our year end picnic.  This is always a wonderful event for the staff, students and families to end the school year with.  

    Our Spring Concert and Art celebration will be Monday, June 11 at 6:30.  We will have a lot of art work the children have created here at school. If children have art work they took home or did at home, including the cloth bags they made, they are welcome to bring it in on Monday to display.

    The school Field Day will be on Wednesday June 13 after lunch.  It is usually a big water game time. Change of clothes for after would be nice.

    Please help your child collect some sponsors/pledges for Heifer International. The Walk-A-Thon is next Thursday the 14th from 9:30 to 11:30. There will be water stations for the kids to get drinks along the way. Can anyone send in popsicles or watermelon for the kids when they are done with their walk??

     Friday, June 15, Mrs. Kehoe and Mr. PJ will be taking his class to the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center in the AM. They will meet us on the Townshend Green to have a picnic lunch from the Townshend Country Store. After lunch we will be going to sing at Valley Cares. South end kids will be home early with the high school kids, but we will remind you again as the time gets closer.

    On Monday, June 18, there will be an awards ceremony for our students during all school meeting in the morning. Then we will spend time picking up and cleaning rooms.

    Tuesday, June 19 is the last day of school. As always we will be going to Hapgood Pond. Leaving at 9:15.  School is over at noon time for anyone who cares to leave. I will be sending out a list of foods needed for the picnic.

    From now through year end the newsletter will be a calendar of upcoming events:

    Thursday, June 7, we leave at 11:30 to go to the Retreat Farm in Brattleboro. We will be driving in cars and will drop students off on the way home. Pack your child a picnic lunch and plenty of juice, or water especially if it is hot. Important: We will be staying there until 3:00.  So children will not arrive home until around 3:45.

    The kindergartners will go to the Grafton Nature Museum Friday, June 8, in the morning. This month’s program is water and all the benefits we derive from water.   Make sure your kids wear their water boots and perhaps bring along a change of clothes.

    Our Spring Concert and Art celebration will be Monday, June 11 at 6:30.
