FREE Family Movie night Tonight!

Hidden Figures:  Please come to the Jr. High Room on Friday, January 19th.  In conjunction with the Vermont Reads Program, which has provided thousands of people around the state with free copies of Jacqueline Woodson’s book Brown Girl Dreaming, the Marlboro Library Board and MES Library are sponsoring a showing of Hidden Figures.  Described as “uplifting in every way”, this is an award winning film about a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program. It is rated PG. Popcorn and cookies will be served.  Start time is at  6:30 and the film runs for 127 minutes. Come early for good seats and cookies while they last!  Commonsensemedia.org rates Hidden Figures for 10 year olds and above, with plenty of parent and kid reviews for slightly younger children.  https://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/hidden-figures

Community Meeting – Preschool

We had a very nice meeting last Tuesday and there was a good turnout even with the inclement weather.  Overall, parents were very excited about moving to a public preschool.  If you are interested in either being on the interview committee for the new teachers or helping to shape the programming, please let me know.  We will be starting this work in the coming weeks.  Here is the presentation from our meeting for you to review: Community Meeting – Public Preschool

New Public Preschool

Dear Parents and Community Members of Marlboro School,

January 9, 2018

Winter Sports

Winter Sports started on the afternoon of Monday, January 8. Whether skating, skiing, snowboarding, or exploring the woods in winter, students look forward to the physical challenge and exhilaration. While students and paraprofessionals are off on these adventures, teachers will engage in a variety of professional learning. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who help to make these events happen. Lunch is served early on these days, so please send in a few snacks for the afternoon. Also, we will do our best, but it is likely that busses will leave the school a little late and drop off times will be affected.

Hearing & Vision Screening

The annual hearing and vision screening will be done for students in grades K,1,3,5, and (just vision) in grade 7 in January/Feb. It is a brief, preliminary screening and for any abnormal results a note will be sent home for families to follow-up with their own practitioner. Also, if your child has an updated immunization and/or physical or asthma plan please send the information to me so that we may keep our records updated. Thank you.

Nurse Kathleen O’Neill

 Snow Cancellations
