Dear Parents, August 20, 2015
We hope you have had the opportunity to play, visit and enjoy the summer with your children! For the past few weeks, the custodial staff and the teachers have been busy unpacking supplies, cleaning, organizing and getting the school ready for opening day. The teachers will have a workshop day on August 31. The first student day will be Tuesday, September 1 for children in grades 1-4. Our Kindergarten students will have a visit day with their parents on Wednesday, September 2 at 9 to 10:45 am and will come for their first complete day on Thursday, September 3. Our school day starts at 8:20 and ends at 3:15 except on Wednesday when school ends at 12:30. There is no school on Friday, September 4 or Monday, September 7. School will resume on Tuesday, September 8 for all students. A copy of the student handbook can be found on the school website. (www.windham.k12.me.us )This handbook outlines rules and expectations for our students as well as the district's mission statement. If you do not have access to the Internet, please ask the office for a copy of the handbook.
There are some new staff members at RES this school year. We welcome Mrs. Kayla Vangelist to our third grade team! We also welcome Mrs. Leesa Smith as our PE teacher on Thursdays. Mr. DeSarno will continue to be RES PE teacher on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Jen Wescott, our noon time/playground aide, has also left to pursue other interests. If you know of someone who may be interested in a ten hour a week position helping to supervise children on the playground, please contact me.
Please mark your calendars for October 4, 2015. RES will host a Color Run Fundraiser for children, families and friends. More information will follow. Our Holiday Wreath Sale last year was very successful and will once again be selling wreaths for the holidays in November.
The new bus routes will be posted on the RSU Windham/Raymond Website, and the Windham Independent. Any changes in a student's bus schedule needs to go through Mike Kelly at the district office. (892-1809)
