Homecoming parade update

Red Cross Pillowcase Project Students show their customized pillow cases.

The American Red Cross visited the Junior High students to work with them on the Pillowcase Project, which is sponsored by Disney.  Students were educated about emergency situations and how to respond when faced with one. Students in Mrs. Harrah's class had the opportunity to learn about various emergencies and create a personalized pillowcase. The Red Cross speaker offered suggestions, tips/tools, and a preparedness toolkit to students. The students worked on their pillowcases during the class period and reviewed vital supplies they should have in their pillowcases in the event of an emergency. The pillowcases and fabric markers were graciously donated.

One of our school goals is to teach students about real-life situations while inviting commuity members and organizations into the classrooms. We thank the American Red Cross for volunteering their time to Windham.

Straight A Grant Recipient

 

A Straight A Grant has made its way to Northeast Ohio, and the Windham District is one recipient of the grant. Campbell City Schools was the lead applicant on the literacy grant, but included a consortium of school districts including: Austintown, Beaver Local, Brookfield, Newbury, West Branch, Windham, United Local, and Youngstown Community School.

This literacy grant, known as the Northeast Ohio Consortium Straight A Grant, is one of only 23 awarded by the state, from a pool of 141 applicants. The grant is based on a highly successful program, Literacy Collaborative, through The Ohio State University.  Literacy Collaborative uses the award-winning work of early reading experts Dr. Irene Fountas and Dr. Gay Su Pinnell.

The grant will allow for the hiring and training of literacy coaches at Katherine Thomas Elementary and the implementation of a proven program that is backed by decades of research.  One coach will be trained for the 2016-2017 school year as an intermediate (grades 3-5) coach. During the 2017-2018 school years, another coach, specializing in grades K-2, will be trained. Full implementation will take three years.  

We are proud to bring this program to our district as we continue to improve our instruction and achievement!

Social Studies teacher, Stephanie Parish-Smith, accompanied the students to the ceremony.

The second ribbon cutting ceremony took place at the grand opening of the Mahoning County Educational Service Center at their new location in Canfield. Students from 21 districts attended this event along with local officials and community members. The students participated in the ceremony as they cut their own ribbon to celebrate the new building. This state-of-the-art building is over 35,000 square feet where it will provide teachers and administrators with professional development and other services to continue providing students with high quality education.

Easy Way to Help Us Raise Money!

Help us raise money for our schools!  The Junior and Senior High is participating in the Tyson Project A+™ program, a fund-raising program sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc. Through this program, we can raise a significant amount of money for our schools! It’s an easy way to raise much needed funds by sending Tyson Project A+ labels from products you probably already buy.

Here’s how it works: Just clip and collect Tyson Project A+ labels from participating Tyson® product packages and send them to school with your child. We’ll collect the labels for the remainder of this school year, and it will continue into next year. We will send the labels to Tyson Foods, and Tyson Foods will send our school a check. Each label is worth 24¢!

If you have any questions about the program, call Kathy Gutherie in the Junior High Office. You can also find details online- Click Here!  

We hope you’ll join us in collecting Tyson Project A+ labels and spread the word to your friends and relatives. It’s such an easy way to raise funds for our schools! Thanks for your support and all that you do for our schools. #windhamfamily
