Note from Francie 9/12

It’s been a great week at school.  Our big news is that David Holzapfel is being recognized as the Vermont Humanities Council Educator of the Year!  David was selected from a pool of talented educators, most of whom teach high school.  The selection committee was particularly impressed with David’s study of immigration connected with the NYC field research trip and his community history project in which his students interviewed many Marlboro residents who live and work in town.

The award will be given at the University of Vermont in Burlington on November 15.  Congratulations, David!  We are so proud.

All School Directory – Opt Out

Traditionally Marlboro School provides a directory of Student Names sorted by Classroom, along with Parent Names, Home Phone Number, and Mailing Address and E-mail address, to all students’ families. We do this to facilitate communication in our small, yet geologically far spread school community. If you, DO NOT wish to be included on this list, please notify Gail Chaine at 254-2668 or gchaine@marlboroschool.net, before Sept 18th, and I will remove your name from the list. I will send home the all school directory with Sept 19th Friday Notes.

Parking Lot

Providing a safe place for students to arrive at and depart from school is a priority!  You will notice that we’re using a bit of a different procedure with the busses loading and unloading at the “back” of the lot near the dumpsters.  We hope to free up the area where cars pull in and we ask your continued help and attention in the following ways:

  • pull over to the split rail fence to drop off or pick up your children
  • or park diagonally by the chain link fence and walk your children across the lot
  • keep the travel lane open so that other cars can get off of Route 9
  • pay attention to Gail and other traffic attendants who are there to help

Thanks for your help with these important safety concerns.

Thanks!

David’s  Class would like to thank our chaperones for helping to make the Woodford overnight a blast.   Thanks to Admirals Evan Wyse, John Bentley, and Tom Hudak for their expert canoeing skills.  And big thanks to the overnight and hiking crew: P’tricia Wyse, Carie Kowalski and Jeff Burt.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.
