The Thomas Fleming 5th grade Spelling Team did a fantastic job at the 5th/6th grade VPA Regional Spelling Competition this past Saturday against 5 other teams at Waitsfield Elementary School!
While we did not win, it was a very close contest the entire time, and we are so proud of our team: Jacob Law, Ryan Alamatouri, Holden Friesel, Emma Hodgson, Sophia Lu and Drea Shepard. Thank you to Spelling Coach Amy Bigelow for her valuable coaching work with this group of outstanding fifth grade spellers.
Just a reminder now that the weather is getting colder, that students should dress accordingly for the day. We have morning outside time from 7:40 a.m. until 8 a.m. daily. Students are also spending spending at least a 30 minutes a day outside for recess.
Unless the temperatures with wind-chill factor reaches zero degrees F, students should be prepared to be outside.
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.
Nearly 80 participants came together to share their experiences and perspectives around the community that they live in.
