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


First Snow Fall



The weather has turned colder and we have had our first snowfall. Please make sure both younger and older students have clothing that will keep them warm. We do go out on recess even when it is cold out, so please confirm that they have mittens, hats, warm coat and snow pants and boots when there is snow on the ground! It is important that all students have a second pair of shoes to use when in school to save the wear and tear on the rugs.


Vermont Student Assistance Corporation’s (VSAC) 802 Future YOU contest


Our K-6 students entered VSAC’s 802 Future YOU contest last month. They each drew a picture of a job that would like to explore when they get older. The jobs that they were curious about included, game/web designers, YouTuber, artist, fireman, and a farmer! Each week 2 random winners were selected to receive $50 in takeout from their favorite local restaurant and 9 random winners would win $200 to start a 529 college savings plan, sponsored by VSAC. 


Windham Elementary has two students to congratulate on being randomly selected! Bryson Combs won a $50 takeout gift certificate and Ivy Packard won one of the 9 $200 529 college savings plans!
