Traffic Safety Awareness Walk

On Wednesday, May 4th at 11:30 am. We will observe Walk/Bike to School Day. Of course, students won’t be expected to get to school by biking or walking as our location makes that so challenging. We will use this day to call attention to the traffic situation on Route 9. As you know we’re working with the town and the state to try to lower the speed limit during arrival and departure hours and to put into effect other measures that will increase safety. To call attention to our efforts, the whole school will walk along Route 9, with an escort by the sheriff, and then down South Road to the Post Office. Please join us if you can!

Note from Francie 4/29/16

What a great turn-out for the Learning Fair! The students did a wonderful job of preparing their exhibits and then guiding us all through them. Thank you for attending and for being an appreciative audience.

Community spirit was strong as we prepared for the Learning Fair. Our custodian, Jesse, had a death in his family and was unable to do the final cleaning. Everyone pitched in – staff and students and the school looked great. Special thanks to Gail for organizing this effort and to Lois for going above and beyond!

The Spring Art Show

If you are looking for opportunities to fulfill your School/Home Contract I would encourage you to volunteer to help with hanging the art show. This is the culminating showcase for the artistic growth of our children throughout this school year. The excitement is growing! Our theme for the show this year is ‘Things With Wings’! Students will also exhibit some of the artwork they did earlier in the year related to our visit to the ‘Van Gogh in Nature exhibit at the Clark Museum. If you can lend a hand on Saturday May 14, or Sunday May 15, please send Sue Aldridge an email: saldridge@marlboroschool.net , put a note in my mailbox in the office, or feel free to call 579-1283 (eves). Thanks for supporting our young artists!

Ticks are out!

Most of us have had, have now, or know someone dealing  Lyme disease. Vermont has become #1 in the country with cases of Lyme disease. About 50% of ticks carry the bacteria that causes Lyme, Borrelia burgdorferi. What is one to do??? We cannot avoid time in the woods or gardening or hiking. We can, however, get educated and “BE TICK SMART – REPEL, INSPECT, REMOVE”
