One Last Note! 6/17/15

On Monday we graduated twelve 8th graders: Maya, Shadda, Aleah, Linaea, Liam, Mason, Frida, Aidan, Walker, Adaylia, Makayla, and Mercer. Each of these students has brought unique gifts to our school community. We will miss them. Brattleboro Union High School and the Compass School will be lucky when they arrive in August as 9th graders!

Computers Available

We will have at least a handful of computers available to families that need them. While we don’t have all the details at the moment, if you are interested in bringing one home for a small donation, please set aside some time from 3-6 on Thursday, July 9th.

 

We’ll have full computers with keyboard and mouse as well as several extra monitors and possibly keyboards. None of this is new equipment, but will function fine as a word processor, especially in homes without internet access – or spotty access! Combine with an inexpensive thumb drive and you can transfer files to/from school or work. Donation amounts are up to you, but will help us purchase new tech equipment.

Open Position

Marlboro School seeks a classroom assistant (.5FTE)/special education one-on-one paraeducator (.5FTE) to work in the Primary class for 2015-2016.  Please submit a letter of interest and a resume to Francie Marbury – fmarbury@marlboroschool,net –  by Friday, June 26.

News from Girls on the Run

GOTR, as many of you know, promotes mental and physical well being for girls in 3rd-5th grades.  One of the curriculum requirements of GOTR is to complete a community service project.  This year our girls chose the think outside the box and promote a similar running program in Ethiopia called Girls Gotta Run (GGR).  The girls shared their powerpoint presentation at the Learning Fair, with family and friends.  We are very excited to announce that they collectively raised enough funds to sponsor a GGR scholarship recipient for one full year!  A beautiful demonstration of community support for young girls worldwide!   Our program will be matched with a girl and her family from either the Bekoji or Sodo Ethiopia GGR program sites.   Some of the things that our sponsorship provides her with are:

  • Full Scholarship to attend secondary school, including healthcare for student and her mom, daily meals, uniform, books, tutoring, access to school clubs and library, showers and space to wash clothes on the weekend.
  • Completion of the GGRF/CCL Life Skills Curriculum developed to create safe spaces for girls and provide experiential learning modules on family planning, financial literacy, HIV/AIDS awareness, nutrition, healthy relationships, leadership, and creative expression.
  • Running clothes, shoes and healthy snacks for the year
  • Entrance and transportation to Ethiopian races throughout the year
  • Oversight of a coach and running mentor

Throughout the coming year we will have letter correspondence with our sponsored girl  as well as academic progress reports.  What a unique opportunity for our girls to witness positive progress and growth alongside their own!
