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



UPDATE - Edgar May Swimming Trip

We unfortunately did not come up with enough drivers, so I reached out to Kord to see if he had the time and availability to bring us all on the bus. He graciously agreed and so we will be leaving the school at 9 AM the 21st to head to Springfield to have an hour of swimming at Edgar May Health & Recreation Center. Thank you to those families that did say they were available, but we are now all set with transportation. There are still a few permission and release forms that have not been returned. In order for your student to swim, these need to be returned.


Volunteers needed: Holiday Craft Day

On Wednesday, December 22nd, the students will make holiday crafts from 1-3 PM. If you would like to do a craft with the students, please contact Cindy Kehoe at 802-874-7028. There are usually at least seven tables set up with different crafts, and the kids go from table to table making small gifts for the upcoming holidays. Even if you do not have a craft, you can come in and help at the tables. Please be sure to let Cindy know the general idea of the craft you would like to do as well as what materials you are expecting the school to supply (ie Scissors, tape). All participating volunteer adults need to be masked during this event.

Gift Exchange
If you need a reminder on who your student picked for the Windham Elementary Gift Exchange, please contact Ms. Sara. The gifts should be in the price range of $5 or less. We will plan on our gift exchange to happen on our half day of school (December 23rd) before break.
