Principal's Message

Welcome to Windham Center School! 

Dear Parents,

 

 Welcome to Windham Center School.  We are a 5th and 6th grade school with just over 400 students and a highly dedicated staff.  The staff works collaboratively to create highly engaging lessons that meet the diverse needs of their learners. They create an environment where both their academic and social emotional needs are met.  With educating the whole child our students meet high levels of achievement and growth.  

Our school will begin the initial stages of integrating Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to create and maintain a safe and effective learning environment while equipping students with the social skills needed to ensure their success not only in our school, but their community. We will follow the core values of R.O.A.R, responsibility, opportunity, achievement and respect. The purpose of this initiative is to establish a school climate where appropriate behavior is the norm.  We will model and teach positive behaviors and students will be recognized for showing the Wildcat Way. Throughout the school year all stakeholders will be involved in more clearly defining the Wildcat Way through our WCS Parent Council, WCS Student Council and staff professional development days.  

As a school community, we believe in fostering leadership skills early on.  Students in both grades 5 and 6 will have an opportunity to run for student council and represent their classroom and school.  As a representative, they will plan and organize some community service events such as making cards for veterans, the "unsung heroes" of WCS (nurses, custodians, office personnel) and the elderly, collecting candy for the deployed, Lazarus House holiday drive and more!

In addition to their classroom experience, we offer several clubs to further increase socialization among our students.  Throughout the year students can get involved in clubs like bowling, robotics, ski, floor hockey, book clubs and more.  After school activities are a great way for your child to continue to build long lasting friendships.  

The Fine Arts Department at Center School is also excited to be back in full swing in the fall.   We are looking forward to music students being able to perform again in band, choir and orchestra. The music team is  planning to bring back traditional performances that could not happen during the pandemic.  

Students in art class will be able to create three dimensional art including ceramics.  This was not something we could accomplish during the pandemic.

 

 There are always exciting things happening in our classrooms and on our campus.  We continue to encourage you to get involved by joining our parent groups, volunteering at school activities and taking an active role in your child’s education.  

 Windham Center School is committed to the success of all students.  We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year.  


Sincerely,

 

 B.J. Martin
