School Community Core Value Survey Available Online
submitted by School Administrative Unit 28, Windham The Windham School District is working on creating a strategic plan for our schools, and has assembled a group of volunteers from the schools and the community to lead the way in this venture. This plan will serve as the framework to improve educational experiences throughout our district for the next five years. In order to get input from the community, the Strategic Planning Committee is sending out a School Community Core Value Survey. This survey is available online at www.windhamsd.org
in bright red letters, and in hard copy at all Windham schools, the town library, town offices, the SAU Administration building, and the Senior Center. Survey collection boxes will be placed at each location. Those
who wish to mail a completed Core Values Survey may send it to: SAU 28 – Core Values Survey, PO Box 510, Windham, NH 03087. The survey will be available during the month of November.
The Strategic Planning Committee appreciates your willingness to participate in the survey. Your viewpoint will help identify the direction of education for the children of the Windham School District.

Windham School Students Learn about 17th Century Iron
submitted by Sherry Dufour, Windham Center School Students in Miss Dufour’s fifth-
grade class at Windham Center School visited the Saugus Iron Works in Saugus, MA. All fifth-grade classes attended this field trip during the month of October. Students learned about 17th century production, distribution, and consumption of iron in New England, and discovered the importance of the ironworks to our history. The children visited the blast furnace to witness a waterwheel operating 18-foot twin bellows to turn raw materials into iron products.
Center School Book Swap Draws Huge Success

School Media Center hosted a book swap last week, where students could donate books to the library and, in exchange, could take the same number of books home with them to keep. Last week, the Center School Media Center was busy with something different from the usual book checkout: students selected books to keep and add to their home libraries. In previous weeks, third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade students were encouraged to bring in up to three gently used books that they had finished reading. Then, during their library classes on October 25-29, these students were able to take home the same number of books as they had brought in, according to Joel Burdette, Windham’s Media Specialist. “Students were excited to pick reading material that was new to them, and to be able to keep it. Well over one hundred students participated in the swap. They were able to choose from many hundreds of donated books, spread across numerous tables and shelves,” stated Burdette. Fifth-grader Brett Simpson commented, “I need a book to read. I’ve read pretty much every book at my house,” while fifth-grader Meredith Richard and fourth-grader Nicole Letourneau liked the idea of getting books for free. Sponsored by the PTA, this event will be looking to repeat itself at the Golden Brook School this coming spring.
