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

Ivy’s winning model clay and toothpick structure and freshly baked pumpkin seeds from our carving of pumpkins last week!

Outdoor Adventure

Ms. Sally and Mr. B will return to Windham Elementary School on THIS Monday, October 26th to continue their Outdoor Adventure class with the students. Looking at the weather, we will have some rain showers on Monday, please be sure your student comes to school with appropriate clothing (i.e. rain jackets and boots) for that afternoon. This past Monday, the students worked on their outdoor plots and also did some leaf identification. Do you know the difference between a red maple and a sugar maple leaf? Ask your students to identify the two leaves below!

Snow Days

Since the onset of the Covid virus, schools around the country have found that teaching remotely, although certainly not ideal, can continue to keep the education of our students moving along. Therefore, it has been determined by the WCSU district that snow days will be REMOTE learning days this year and not days off from school. 

Ms. Sara and Mr. PJ will reach out to families via emails in the morning on snow days with a check-in email that will provide information on what each of your students should work on during that day. In order for your student to be marked as present for attendance on the snow day, we will need to receive a response back to the email that is sent. No response back from the email, your student will be marked absent for the day.

Canvas Still Needed

As the students finish their outdoor classroom lean-to, we are in search of anyone that might have and would be interested in donating a canvas that we can add to the outside of the lean-to. The canvas that is being asked for is the type that teepees/tents use for weatherproofing.
