Congratulations to Mrs. Bazin

The 37th Annual UVM Outstanding Teachers Day took place on October 12 at the Davis Center on the University of Vermont campus. The 2017 Outstanding Teachers from every school district in Vermont were honored. We are proud of Mrs. Bazin for being recognized as at Outstanding Teacher. She joins an elite group who have earned this honor.

Friday All School Hike Change of Destination

We will be at school for lunch and recess times on Friday. We are going to hike from the Chivers Center at Vermont Academy to the Arboretum.  We will have fun in the field and then return back on a loop hike. Parents are welcome to join us. There is parking available in the lower Chivers lot. The Chivers building is beyond the ice rink on the opposite side and looks like a ski lodge. We expect to be back in school 2:20 – 2:30.

Picture Day October 4th

A photographer from LifeTouch will be at our school on Wednesday morning to take individual photographs. Students have taken home flyers with information for parents.

Vision Screening

This morning all students in attendance had their vision checked using a SPOT Pediavision screener. The Lions Club of Springfield, Vermont has purchased this equipment and coordinates with school nurses to bring it to schools.  Thank you, Lions, for your support.

Sept. 13 Walk to School and PTO

We will meet at the Saxtons River Village Market starting at 8 AM and leave in adult led groups to Walk to School.  We hope to have everyone on the playground for 8:18 line-up.  Looks like a nice morning.

The first PTO meeting of the year will be at 6 PM.  All are welcome!  Meetings usually run less than an hour.  Come share your ideas.

Walk to School postponed

With heavy rain forecast for Wednesday morning, we will plan to do Walk to School on Wednesday, Sept. 13th. The first PTO meeting for the year is also that day at 6 PM. Everyone is welcome!
We have had a smooth start to school and lots of tree-mendous learning activities are taking place.
Thanks for helping all students arrive to school on time.

Wonderful First Day of School

Our students were ready for a “tree-mendous” first day of school! It was a successful day for everyone and we are looking forward to day 2 tomorrow. It will be a PE day for all classes and sneakers make the best footwear everyday at school.
Get some rest and bring your water bottle.

Welcome New Teachers!

We have two new classroom teachers.  Ms. Gauding is teaching Kindergarten and Ms. Manning is teaching reading to all students in grades 3 and 4.  She is also the grade 4 writing teacher, social studies, and homeroom teacher.  (Grade 4 students will have Mrs. Douglass for math and science.  Mrs.Douglass will also teach science to all grade 3 students, and Mrs. Bazin will teach grade 3 math and writing.  Third graders will have social studies with their homeroom teacher.)

Mrs. Monahan will be teaching reading.  Ms. Wells is our PE teacher.  Mrs. Audet is our school nurse on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  Ms. Stack will be our Title 1 teacher.

We are very excited about our new team members and how they will help all our students be successful.  We are counting the days until school begins.
