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

Mr. PJ’s class build bird houses last week and this Tuesday, they painted them some pretty wild colors. You may be the recipient of a bright bird house that will attract all sort of birds.

The first farmer’s market day at the West Townshend Country Store will be this Friday, May 27. There will be a raffle featuring a cord or firewood, brunch at the 4 Columns Inn and other great prizes. There will be a Maypole and raffle (from the cancelled spring festival.) The farmers market begins at 4:00PM. The Maypole will be at 6PM weather permitting.

Mr. PJ’s class is going to the shore on Tuesday, May 31. Mrs. Kehoe, Lisa and Mr. PJ will be driving. They have been studying different sea/shore life for a couple of weeks, so they will be able to quickly identify what they find. This will be a tremendous day for them.


 The Walkathon will be Wednesday, June 1st in the afternoon starting at 1:00 PM. The whole school will participate. We will be raising money for Heifer International again this year. Please join us if you can and support your children in getting sponsors. Forms were sent home last Friday. Children can get pledges per mile or a pledge for participation. They can walk up to 4 miles. Children should bring their pledge money in by Friday, June 3.   They do not have to contribute a lot of money. If each child brings in $3.00 we can buy flocks of chickens for three families in need. Thanks.


Windham School Field Day will be after lunch on Thursday, June 2nd. If it is warm weather do not forget to send an extra set of dry clothing and shoes.


Mr. PJ’s class is working with Weston Playhouse every Wednesday and Friday. They are writing the script, building and constructing costumes and background.   They will be the actors and actresses at their production at Weston Playhouse on Saturday, June 4. Students will have to be at the playhouse at 1:45. The performance starts at three.


Windham Elementary Spring concert is Monday, June 6 at 6:30.  There are no graduates this year. This will also be our all school awards ceremony evening and showing of artwork done during the year.


School Picnic will be the morning of June 7, our last day of school. We will leave at 9:30 and school will be over after lunch.  We have our lifeguard so we will be all set for swimming. I have sent the food list. Let me know if you would rather bring something else.
