Announcements 2-22-12

Vermont Writes Day

On February 7th, the birthday of Charles Dickens, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Sinclair Lewis, over seventy schools, including SACS, participated in Vermont Writes Day. Students were given a prompt and asked to write for seven minutes about it. We would like to share some of these pieces with you in the Daily Announcements.

Raider Athletics Awards Night

The award night takes place in the cafeteria at 6:00pm for Basketball players and Cheerleaders in grades 5-8.

Team USA's Culminating Event 

Team USA is extremely proud of our students day to day work ethic and classroom demeanor. It has been termed "controlled chaos" as our students seek their own answers to various problems using teachers as facilitators rather than purveyors of information. For our culminating event, we invite parents to stop in to our class this week, anytime, no pre announcement required, and experience a day in the life of a Team USA student. We will not put on a special show, we will simply show you what we look like everyday. (No make-up!)
     On Wednesday AM we are hosting a guest speaker with a Documentary crew. You are invited to that as well!
Stop in anytime: Parents/Guardians of current Team USA members,  potential future members, or anyone interested in how an innovative, successful team operates.
The students will have Math and LA in the mornings until 11:15, after that we have 21st Century time. Come and be a part of it!

Taste Test in the Cafe
