Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey for 7th and 8th graders

January 23, 2015
Dear Parent:

Our school is participating in the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) sponsored by the Vermont Department of Education and the Vermont Department of Health. The survey gathers information about health risk behaviors of 6th through 8th grade students. The survey includes questions about nutrition, alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, physical exercise, injuries, and sexual behavior. Schools, communities and state agencies will use the results of the survey to evaluate programs, plan new programs and to secure future funding.

We are planning to administer the survey to 7th and 8th graders on March 5th.

Note from Francie 1/23/15

Hats off to all of you who, despite cold and ice, made up an appreciative audience at the Instrumental Concert.  The strings program at Marlboro has gotten stronger and stronger with students continuing to study violin right through Junior High.  David Tasgal had the students playing a number of pieces in several parts.  This allowed the youngest musicians to play a simple part while the more experienced played advanced parts.  The Marlboro String Ensemble stole the show with Vivaldi’s Spring. Then Michael McKinney’s band students played a number of pieces – acoustic, rock, and more traditional band.  Despite technical difficulties, they brought down the house with Take Me to the River.  Congratulations to all the student musicians and special appreciation to 8th graders Aidan, Linaea, and Frida.

Food Drive

Thank you for your contributions to our Deerfield Valley Food Pantry drive. We had four full boxes to donate! Some food arrived too late so we have decided to continue with an ongoing collection throughout the school year. The food pantry often gets forgotten at other times of the year, so we thought why not keep it going! We will leave one box in the hallway and, when it’s filled, I’ll drop it off. So if you have any extra cans of food or buy a couple of items to put in the box, we would appreciate it! Thanks again!                                      The Primary Class
