PAML in Montpelier Recently!

On January 21st a couple of ML students and a HS student testified against the marijuana bill. This was a unique opportunity for these students and they came back with the feeling that they made a difference.

That same day, Dylan Haskins was lucky enough to attend the 2016 Governor's Budget Address with his family, and even made the news - about 1:16 into the video link above you'll see him enjoying the address.

On Jan. 27th, seven Middle Level and two High School students were invited to take time out from Prevention Awareness Day activities (at the state capital) to have lunch with Speaker of the House, Shap Smith.  Prevention Awareness Day is a highlight for students who have been working with Peter Hathaway.  Highlights of the 2016 event included:
  • Displays by youth coalition members who have taken action to help their peers make healthy choices and improve the health and safety of their communities.

What's Happening?

We are off to a busy start in 2016.  You will be receiving report cards in the mail soon, as the 2nd quarter ended last week.  

We had a successful dance on Jan. 15 and LOTS of photos were taken in the photo booth.  These will be printed and made available to your students later in the school year. 

I want to thank everyone who has helped make the new drop-off / pick-up pattern work so well.  We hope that in the interest of student safety, this will be a more effective process at PAML and PAHS.  If you have any questions about it, just ask!

Last week we had our Golden Ticket celebration, where we had muffins with all students who had no office referrals for the month of December.  It's great to recognize students who are safe, responsible and respectful.  They are also funny, silly and loud! Here's a video a few students made while doing a dramatic reading of the Golden Ticket...enjoy!
