February 7, 2014 Friday Notes



  For Parents
 The Westminster Schools send home announcements and communication to parents in written form on the first Friday of each month. Classrooms, Programs, School Board, and all school announcements are included in the newsletter known as Friday Notes.  We send the notes electronically to those who have email, post on our website, and send paper copies home with students.  Hopefully, this electronic notification reduces paper and printing – and still meet the community communication needs. Westminster teachers also send home bi-weekly classroom notes. We will check in with parents to see if we are still meeting needs – and of course we can always have special editions!  Please let us know if you have ideas of how we can improve our communication.


For Visitors
Westminster is in southeastern Vermont, the third largest town in Windham County, with 3,210 people (2000 Census) and about 400 students enrolled in school. The town schools have 184 students in K-6th grade in two schools. Westminster has no public 7-8 grades, so students attend local public and private schools, many of the students attend the Bellows Falls Middle School (the closest public school and part of WNESU) and Compass School, which is located on Route 5 in Westminster.  Seventh and eighth graders also attend Kurn Hattin Homes (as day students), Dummerston School, Putney Central School, Putney Grammar School, and Hilltop Montessori.

The local public high school is Bellows Falls Union High School.
