As the year quickly draws to a close, we continue to work towards being safe, kind, respectful and responsible. Our continued work around responsibility comes with a specific focus on ‘perseverance’ and ‘problem solving.’ These are skills we use every day at Fleming School! We hope that for those students who practice perseverance and use healthy problem solving skills here at school, they will be able to incorporate these choices into their everyday lives at home and out in the community. Please ask your child how they have become more responsible citizens this year.
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.
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.
