A Final Note from Francie

On Monday the 8th graders will graduate. All week they have been presenting their graduation portfolios organized around the Marlboro Realms of Learning: Problem Solving, Communication, Civic and Social Responsibility, Personal Development, and Knowledge. I learn so much about each of these students as they reflect on their learning and the work they’ve done at Marlboro School. They are well prepared for their next step. Ben, Samantha, Jordan, Lilly, and Sloan will go on to Brattleboro Union High School; Forrest and Nieve head off to the Compass School; and Merou and Broden will attend the Putney School. Congratulations and best wishes to the 8th grade class!

Dear Marlboro School Community,

You may have heard that this year will be my final year at MES.  It has been a wonderful 6 years.  Marlboro Elementary is a great place to work and play.  I feel so fortunate to have been the PE teacher here. The school, the students, their families and the staff at MES have been so wonderful to work with.  It has been a great experience. Thank you for your support and for the opportunity to work with your children.

Sincerely yours, John Bentley

Ticks are Out

I have put some interesting information on the Parent Bulletin board in the hallway. Please help yourself to it! Some of the info is from the CDC and some has a more alternative approach to prevention and taking care of yourself. There’s also a pamphlet about the various tick-borne illnesses. It’s not just Lyme that is out there! Take good care! Nurse Susan
