Windham Elementary School Newsletter

Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to learn”

We are letting the kids run and play in the tall grass right behind the sandbox. We do not normally do this because of ticks. They love it and are running, laughing, chasing each other and hiding. If this is a problem, give us a call and we will keep your child out of there. Remember to check them before they go to bed at night.

Attached to this weeks newsletter is a letter from the Norse House about Ski rentals for this winters ski program. It is best is you lease the rentals in the time frame they recommend. (before Thanksgiving). Getting there before Thanksgiving guarantees you a better selection and makes sure you have what you need for the JISP program.

Mrs. Kehoe's class went to the Grafton Nature Museum on Thursday for a program on ants and what hard workers they are. With a little bit of knowledge and reading to them before hand they are right in tune with what is presented.
