The Windham Elementary School offers an inclusive, educational environment serving students in grades K-6.  Currently, we have 8 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”

     

     

    A HUGE THANK YOU FROM Mr. PJ and Ms. Sara

     

    This school year certainly has been one that we are all happy to see leave, but also one to celebrate. Our Windham students came to school prepared and ready to learn back in September and they never once complained or questioned the rules that we had in place to keep us all safe from COVID. We took each day as it came and through it all, we were able to make some amazing memories during these last 168 masked school days. As our Windham Field Day T-shirts stated this year, each one of our WES students are All-Stars for showing determination and perseverance throughout the 2020-2021 school year. Congratulations to all our students and their families for a fabulous year! We are Windham Strong!

     

    Hapgood Pond THIS Monday

     

    From the RSVP’s we received please plan for approximately 30 at our end of the year picnic.

     

    Students can arrive at school at their normal time and Mickey and I will do one final gathering as a group in the school before we all depart to Hapgood Pond at 9 AM. 

     

    Families are more than welcome to depart at 9 AM with us. Before departing WES, Sara will take down all license plates of the cars entering Hapgood so that she can pay for parking for everyone upon arrival.

     

    The lifeguard we have hired will be on duty from 10-12. 

     

    We will plan on having a buffet style lunch and at noon will have a final good-bye ceremony for each of our kiddos, before school staff says good-bye for the summer. 

     

    Families are more than welcome to stay longer if they choose to, or they can leave as well at that time.

    Hapgood Pond

    Thank you to all our Windham families for going above and beyond to make this end of year celebration so wonderful for our students. Sara will be sending out an email early next week that will include the final details of the trip to Hapgood Pond on Monday, June 14th. In the email it will include a request to RSVP the number of members of your family that will be attending.  The total number will be shared with everyone so that those planning on bringing food items, can help plan accordingly. 

     

    Field Day on Wednesday 

    Our PE teacher, Carla West, is planning for the student’s Field Day to happen this Wednesday around 1 PM. It will be an afternoon dedicated to lots of fun games and activities for the kids to participate in outside in the back field of the school. Carla is asking that students please bring a bathing suit, towel and a plastic bag to put wet stuff in for some water activities she has planned as part of the afternoon fun. 

     

    Superhero Presentation and Music Concert

    A HUGE thank you to Susan Haefnerand Sally Newton for working with our Windham students to provide the wonderful theatrical and musical performances we saw Friday morning. In the midst of this last year, to have our students be able to express themselves on stage and enjoy the process of producing a play and singing/dancing their favorite songs was a joy to witness. 

     

     

     

     

    Spring Fling Week

    Thank you to all our Windham parents for helping our students dress up and participate in Spring Fling week. Everyone enjoyed the anticipation of each student's arrival to see how they dressed up for the selected day. Below are some group photos we were able to capture for each of our four days: Crazy Hair Day, PJ Day, Inside-Out and Backwards Day and finally Color Day.

     

     

     

     

    Herbal Medicine Badge - Tea Bags

    With just a few days to spare, we were able to finish the last herbal medicine project towards their badge. This project focused on learning about different types of herbal teas and what ailments they can help alleviate then learning how to take the leaves of two herbal plants and making them into tea bags to enjoy with their families at home. The herbal leaves the students were able to grind and make into tea bags were mint and raspberry.  

     

     

     

    Hamilton Falls Trip

    Thanks to Ms. Sally and Mr. B for bringing us to Hamilton Falls on Tuesday afternoon. Our day started with a beautiful luna moth that welcomed everyone’s arrival to school. The afternoon was then spent exploring the Hamilton Falls Natural Area as well as enjoying the water and the roaring sound of the falls. What a beautiful little spot so close to our little school to explore and enjoy.
