Annual Popsicles with the Principal Event at Windham Primary School by Kyle Rhoads

I am inviting all Windham Primary School families to join me and some of the staff, for Popsicle and playing on the playground by the cafeteria on Tuesday, August 22. We will provide Popsicle, by the A-House Houplayground, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The rain date will be Wednesday, August 23. We hope you can join us for this fun, school community event.

When I became principal at Windham Primary in 2008, I used this event as one of my first opportunities to get to know the families of the students. The first Popsicle Event was very well attended. Families expressed enjoying this opportunity. 

The following summer, staff and families shared that they hoped I would continue the event and I decided to do so. When our new playgrounds were built, it also became an opportunity to celebrate and enjoy those as well!

Popsicles with the Principal Event highlights many important parts of our school community. This year we have the opportunity to meet our new assistant principal, Mrs. Diana Jordan. Often some of our new staff and returning staff attend this event and have the opportunity to meet families. Many teachers hold an open house right before the event so students can meet their teachers and see their classrooms and then head over to the playground.  

Many former students return with their younger siblings and it becomes a reunion. Most importantly, it provides a great chance for the students, staff and families to reconnect after summer and build new relationships while enjoying popsicles and our beautiful playgrounds!

We are looking forward to this opportunity to meet with the students and their families. The event is an indicator that school is returning and summer is winding down! Families attending should enter the school and playground by the road closest to the High School tennis courts.

Please call the WPS office at 892-1840 or email with any questions.
