Note from Francie 5/19/17

Spring is the season for stepped up Outside Works at Marlboro School! The South EL trip last week is a great example. Kudos to staff members Gary Keiser, Andrea Howe, Nancie Schwartz Angell, and Erik Schickedanz, and parent chaperones, Emily Walsh, Forrest Holzapfel, and Tara Brown! The three main activities took us all over Vermont – to Fort Ticonderoga, VINS, and the Montshire where we learned about history, natural history, and engineering! These activities were great, but an unexpected bonus to the trip was our time in Tunbridge. Andrea has lots of family there and, thanks to her, we were offered amazing hospitality. One of her cousins is the president of the Tunbridge World’s Fairgrounds and he worked it out for us to stay in one of the pavilions – a surprisingly comfortable concrete floor! Another cousin is an organic dairy farmer and he invited us to his farm at the end of the evening milking. The kids had a chance to learn about dairying and to meet the cows up close and personal. All in all we learned a lot about many different aspects of Vermont! Continue reading “Note from Francie 5/19/17”

Marlboro Elementary School Selects New Principal

Marlboro families, I am absolutely delighted to share this very good news with you. Enjoy the vacation! ~ Francie

The Marlboro School District Board is pleased to announce that they have reached agreement with Wayne Kermenski to become the principal beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. Mr. Kermenski was selected after a thorough process involving a variety of stakeholders. In the Fall, outgoing principal, Francie Marbury, hosted a series of facilitated conversation with students, parents and community members, and the school board to develop a job description for the next principal.

Open Library

christmas-books-001After seeing the success of the Summer Library Program begun by Jess Weitz (and support from CLiF and the Marlboro Alliance), we would like to invite pre-schoolers, homeschoolers and any other families living in Marlboro to come by on Friday mornings between 10 and 11:30. This is a good time to browse the collection, read to/with your own child and check out books. Students from several classrooms will also be in and out of the library choosing books, but there should be plenty of space for all!
