Dear Windham Southwest Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. We are very excited to have you and your children as part of the Windham Southwest community. Every staff member has been working very hard to prepare for the return of our students. We have set very high expectations for this year, and there have been many changes in the district as well. We have new buildings, teachers, administrators, as well as a new Superintendent and we are all looking forward to the start of the new school year. The school year starts on Wednesday, August 27 for Stamford and Readsboro, Thursday, August 28th for Twin Valley Elementary, Halifax Elementary and Wednesday, September 3rd for Twin Valley Middle /High School. All the schools in the Supervisory Union use their websites as an important communication and resource tool for the community and families so, please visit them frequently.
Academic success for each student is the main goal of every staff member and administrator in WSWSU. We believe that every student achieve at the highest level and we are prepared to offer more time and support to each and every student in order to prepare them to be innovative learners. I ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging your child to read on a daily basis, monitoring your child's homework, and asking your child to share what he/she has learned at school each day.
Some of the schools, and most recently Twin Valley Middle/High School, have had construction, renovations and updates in order to provide students and teachers the space and enhanced technology they need for 21st century learning. In the near future we will be having an Open House/Celebration at the Twin Valley Middle/High School as the official opening. We hope that you can all join us.
Christopher A. Pratt
WSWSU Superintendent of Schools
