“Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to Learn”


Wednesday morning it was cold enough to walk on the snow.  Some of the students were at Meadows Bee Farm for their weekly time. The rest of the school went for a walk with Sally out in the back field and woods. They found tracks and signs of beaver cutting small trees.  Watching them from back at the school, a couple of the kids were jumping on the pogo stick on the hard crust. When they rejoined back here there were happy smiles, and chatter about the great start to their morning. They were just as happy as all the chattering birds in the tops of the trees. 


Many, many thanks to our Parent Group for the three new basketballs for use outside. The boys were having to pump up the balls at least twice in a half hour of play.  A basketball isn't much good if it won’t bounce back to the players.


Mrs. Nau wanted to share part of a letter she received from Lisa Helme, Director of Financial Literacy with the State of Vermont.  It reads: “Congratulations! Your work promoting the Reading is an Investment program with your school community, and sharing the curriculum with your students, has helped your school become more financially literate. We had another record-breaking year, in terms of the number of students completing the individual reading requirements for the program. This year, we received more than 5500 completed logs compared with 4100 last year. Your students’ success would not have been possible without your hard work.  Thank you.”  Mrs. Nau would like to thank Lillie, Mary, Jed, Elijah, Sam and Myah for making this possible. Good job everyone.


We have sent along pictures of the kids at Meadows Bee Farm. Hope you can open them to look at.


Sally’s kids are studying the birds and squirrel that are feasting on left over seeds left on the ground. New kinds of birds have shown up this week.
