Studio Y Goes West Work Party!

 As we gear up and prepare for the exciting adventure that is our new program Studio Y Goes West, we could use some help.  While we could certainly prepare the grounds for use without help…we can prepare for EPIC AWESOMENESS with help.  Please consider coming out and giving us a hand.
The West School building needs painting indoors, and clean-up work on the grounds, in addition to the fabulous soon-to-be reality pavilion. This needs to be done in advance of Studio Y Goes West’s arrival with children and teachers beginning around November 1.
Scheduled work dates are Friday through Sunday, October 6 – 8. Yes, this is a super busy weekend, but swing by the West school if you can to lift a paint brush, pull a weed, or bring goodies for the workers! All three days from 9am to 4pm. Let me know if you can help at any point along the way, when, and what you will be willing to help with.


In the spring of 2017, Westminster Center School 4th graders visited the Westminster Historical Society Museum, located in our Town Hall.  The met representatives of the Historical Society, who guided us through the Museum collection, and sparked their curiosity about Westminster and Vermont history.

Students pored over the artifacts, iPad in hand, taking lots of photos.   They could do this, thanks to a 2016 Educate/Innovate Grant which awarded our school a cart of 20 iPads and a charging station to support our project, “Discover Westminster.”  The grant is administered by the VT Agency of Education and funded by the VT Lottery.

Back at school, the kids did further research, wrote and recorded comments about their favorite findings. We hope you will explore and learn from this VoiceThread presentation of their work. And please share your comments about our town’s history and these treasures from the past.
