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


No school on Monday, January 16 for Martin Luther King Day.

No school on Monday and Tuesday, January 23, and 24.  The 23rd is an in-service day to prepare report cards. The 24th is a district wide development day at the Career Center. 

Sally sends a reminder: The West River Community Project is holding its 3rdAnnual Martin Luther King tribute at 6:30 tonight Friday, January 13 at the West Townshend Country Store. In previous years Windham kids have participated and I am hoping your child can join us to sing and/or read a short piece. Please let me know if your child can participate this Friday. Thanks, Sally

Many of the kids are heading tubing after school and then planning on continuing on to the Martin Luther King tribute.

Remember this Saturday January 14th at 6pm L&G will be hosting the Harlem Superstars. The team playing against the Harlem Stars will have some familiar names from our schools and the community on it. (one of them is our own Mr. PJ).  Come see them showcase their skills against some high flying talented hoop players! Let’s pack the gym and cheer them on. Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased at all home L&G basketball games or at the door. We look forward to packing the gym on the 14th for some great community fun!!!


At the bottom of the hill this coming Wednesday Jan. 18th from 4-6PM will be Mulligatawny Soup   It was created as a vegan British and Indian soup in the Victorian era. This soup has lentils, chickpeas, carrots, celery, coconut milk, rice and a very cheerful yellow curry! They will have the wood oven going for those who wish to bake bread. All are welcome! THE SOUP IS FREE!!


Lunch on Tuesday was pizza from the West Townshend Country Store. It was donated and it was delicious. Cheese pizza, pepperoni, pepperoni and sausage, mushroom, spinach, sausage and pepperoni. Oh yes, and of course gluten free cheese pizza. Not only did they provide the pizza but a huge tossed salad too. No one was here for lunch on Wednesday, so we heated the rest up for the kids on Thursday. Every last bite was cleaned up. This has come about because the West River Community Kitchen is now up and running.  Check out their website. It is a fine-looking kitchen and will be used for cooking classes.  


Spending time indoors due to the cold or wet this week the kids started playing hockey in the all-purpose room. They can play this outside when it warms up next week. If anyone has an old broom they want to get rid of send it in and they can play outdoors. Checking it out on the internet if we wrap duct tape around the broom it will make them work better hitting the ball.
