Marlboro School Students go to the State House

IMG_0832The chandeliers sparkled, the rugs were red, the pillars a clean white, and the dome dazzled gold. The stakes were high for a junior high class discussing a mock bill. We felt out of place in the Montpelier State house. Twenty students from a small school in the southernmost part of Vermont, traveling three hours to the Capitol where our laws are made.

Francie’s Note 11/20/15

Thank you for your patience with the late bus run on Monday. There are many advantages to owning our buses and having teachers able to drive for field research. It means your children can take trips to Montpelier and the Eric Carle Museum as we did on Monday. It also means that every once in a while a bus may have mechanical problems and we don’t have a backup bus to substitute.  Thanks to bus drivers Andrea Howe, Peter Barus, and Angela Mousseau and the staff members who handled the situation. By the time I arrived back at school with the Junior High everything was under control.

Rent A Kid

IMG4702From raking leaves to stacking wood to  babysitting, the Junior High has it covered with Rent-a-Kid. We can do many things and you can make a contribution to the JH’s class trip this year to Washington DC. We have kids that have taken babysitting classes and are safety certified in case you were worrying about your child. You can give us a day that works for you and we will give you days that will work for us.

We would appreciate it if you called the School and asked for Olivia Romo with any work that you might need to be done. You can also call us for more information about Rent-a-Kid.   Thanks!

VT Safe Routes to School

Many of you have expressed concerns about traffic safety in and around Marlboro School. We have exciting news about an effort underway to improve this area. Sue Burt, grandmother of Cyrus and Roxanne, contacted VT Safe Routes to School, to see if they can help. As a result Maren Hill from VSRTS met with Sue, Jeff Burt, Evan Wyse, Mike Purcell, and Gail Chaine to gather information about our concerns and to develop a plan for addressing them. Many thanks to Sue for getting this off the ground. We’ll let you know what comes of it.
