Note from Francie 1/20/17

Living in Vermont we embrace winter and all the wild weather it can bring. On Wednesday the wet snow made for perfect conditions for snow sculpture building. We divided into our multi age teams, rang the recess bell 15 minutes early, and headed out to the field to create animals of every size and description – sea tortoises, a cat, a sea serpent, and several mythical creatures. At the end we walked around as a whole school as the judges (Ellen and I!) pointed out amazing features of each beast. It’s great to be in a small school where creativity, cooperation, and fun are valued!

More creativity, as well as skill, persistence, patience, and care will be on stage Tuesday evening for the Winter Instrumental Concert. See you there at 6:30!

Thank you to John Bentley and the adult volunteers, Malcolm Moore, Randy Knaggs, Eric Dennis, Liza Mitrofanova, and George Leoniak. and Junior High volunteers, Zinabu,  who pulled off the Climbing and Open Gym session on Wednesday evening. John plans to host another of these evenings in the near future.

Please join me in congratulating Vera and parents Jeremy and Kayla on the birth of baby Margaux. We look forward to welcoming Margaux to the Kindergarten class of 2022!
