" Every day is a GREAT day to be a Bomber!" ~ Jeff Stanley

Welcome Back, Windham Family, We've Missed YOU!

We are excited for another successful school year! The first day of school is Monday, August 27 for all students, and we are proud to have YOU as a part of the new and exciting changes here in Bomber Country. Highlighted below are some new curriculum and staff additions to Windham:

Literacy Collaborative: This framework will begin in grades K-2 and will continue to be implemented in grades 3-6. Because of Literacy Collaborative's individualized approach to instruction, students saw increased improvements within their reading and writing skills.

Did you know that at the end of the 2018 school year 65% of our 3rd and 4th grade students were reading ABOVE grade level?

CPM Math: Grades 6 math classes through Geometry will take on a new framework with engaging, conceptualized learning. CPM math prepares our students to become problem solvers in both a collaborative and individualized learning environment.

Kimberly Curl,Children's Advantage: With the effort of all 12 Portage County Superintendents, the county was granted money to help better support mental health services in the schools. Windham and Maplewood Career Center will share Kimberly Curl, a Prevention Case Manager from Children's Advantage. She will work with families and students who need additional services with anger management, problem-solving skills, social skills, coping skills, and many other things. We are excited to have her as a part of our family!

Communication will be sent out on a regular basis as we strive to keep our community and schools connected. Check out our website, www., for any upcoming events, school news, athletic schedules, and important documents your child may need!
