Exciting Events!

We had a wonderful Community Gathering on Friday afternoon, celebrating students and our school community for being Safe, Respectful, and Responsible.  Ms. Bachelor's Dance Expert performed at the gathering as well.  We celebrated fall sports athletes and students who taught Unbound courses this term.

On Thursday, three 8th graders attended the 4th Annual Rowland Conference at the Davis Center on the UVM campus.  These students listened to an inspiring Keynote speaker, Angela Duckworth, and in the afternoon they presented their digital portfolios to teachers from all around the state.  They made us proud with their poise and confidence!  Each of them had to present their portfolio 4 times!

On Saturday, our top spellers attended the Regional Spelling Bee in South Burlington, Lily, Tanner, Lena, and Edward did stellar and came in a VERY close second to Tuttle Middle School.  This was an exciting day for these hardworking students.  Congratulations!

We had a shout-out to Maliah and Jade for volunteering to listen to kindergarten students read.  This was noted in the "CAPTIONS FROM KINDERGARTEN weekly letter.  Thanks girls, for helping our young students!

Today marks the beginning of the 2nd quarter.  We have a new receptionist in the office, please be sure to welcome Ms. Megan Herman when you call or stop in.
