Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to learn”

We are back. Our first day potluck breakfast was delicious, and finished off at lunchtime. Thank you for coming and bring all that wonderful food.

Important forms have been sent home for parents to sign. We are trying to get all this paperwork over within the first two weeks of school. Parents who will be driving on class trips will need to get us a copy of their automobile insurance and a copy of a current license. For those people lucky enough to have an insurance company that will fax it, our fax number is 802-874-4929 or it can be emailed to Thank you.

A phone call to us if your child will be absent is a big help. If they will be sick or gone for a few days, call their teacher and we will try to get their homework to you.

Same old same old to parents: Since the grass will be wet each morning from the dew, students will need a pair of inside shoes to change into after recess.

For parents who really want to keep track of their child's mittens, hats, jackets, either sewing a colored string or writing on the tag ion their clothes is a big help. Color coding in the past years has made it much easier for the parents and kids to find things quickly. It is a big help when we know what color to look for.

Handbooks will be coming home next week. A concern last year and this year is about leaving/parking running cars in front of the school. We now have a policy for this in this years handbook and would appreciate everyone's help making it work.

We have several new families at our school. If you did not already know, there is a town library at the Congregational Church right at the top of the hill. It is open every Wednesday from 3:00 to 5:00. They have great service. If there is a series you are reading, or a certain author you love to read, they will accommodate you. Check it out.

Anytime anyone has lost a calendar, the snow list or anything else we can help you out with, just let us know.

For those of you already wondering about school pictures, they are Wednesday, October 1st.
