Families, community members, and teachers are invited to come together Friday, January 25, 5:30 to 7 p.m. to celebrate our unique, international community and the many countries it represents. We invite you to bring a dish or dessert to share (enough to feed 5 or more people.)
Volunteers needed: We are also looking for helpers during the event to set up, clean up, assist with art projects and hand out desserts.
Return the bottom portion of this Potluck Dinner Signup slip (downloads to your computer) to the office by Friday, January 18th. Contact Carla Pinto at email@example.com or (802) 857-7738 for questions.
Guide for families about when to keep your child home from school. As members of the Hiawatha community, we are all responsible for the health and safety of our students.
During the winter months, please send your student to school with:
If students do not have boots and snow pants, they will need to stay on paved areas of the playground during recess. This is done to keep them dry.
Also, please pack shoes for your student to wear inside the school building. Wearing wet snow boots is not only uncomfortable but makes for wet floors, which can lead to injury.
A steering committee was formed in the fall of 2016 called Voices for Education (VFE). Made up of students, teachers, school administrators, community members, and school board representatives, VFE is in the process of being actively involved in helping to facilitate dialogue and other engagement opportunities to help the EWSD. Learn more about VFE and the activities that they are taking part in.
Join VFE as part of a celebration on Monday, January 28 from 7-8 p.m. to help develop plans for a better, more welcoming community!
Starting this past fall the EWSD initiated Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), a research-based practice whereby teachers are brought together under a set of facilitated protocol to discuss student learning each Tuesday afternoon.
The EWSD has a variety of opportunities available to families in order to access prekindergarten for their children.
