Eighth Grade Personal Learning Plans

Please join us on Thursday May 30th starting at 6:00 in Learning Communities with a reception in the Art Gallery from 6:30-7:30.

Listen to each student present in 2-5 minutes, their response to the prompt; ‘What is my future (aspiration, career, profession, job), what will it take to achieve it, and how has my time at St. Albans City School prepared me for my future.’

Students will be organized in their Learning Communities. There will be two sessions of speeches for each Learning Community (6:00-6:30) and (6:45-7:15). If you have a child in two Learning Communities, we will help coordinate so that you may attend both. Parents are welcome to attend one or both sessions, and we ask that parents remain for the entire session.

This is the first year that we are having students complete this performance task. We believe that helping them learn to communicate effectively will be very valuable as they emerge as young adults. Focusing them on their future will help them to see the value of their education, and help them persevere so they can reach their dreams.

Fitness Team

The team is traveling to Burlington today to compete in the UVM Fitness Competition.

Dance Tonight for Grades 4, 5 and 6

Team Triumph is hosting a dance tonight (4/19) in the cafeteria from 6-8.

Arrival and Dismissal from Dances:

Students enter through the gymnasium doors and sign themselves into the dance.

School Expectations (Safe, Achieving, Caring) remain at all evening events and that includes dances.

At the end of our dances, chaperones and staff will walk students through the building to our front lobby. We will dismiss from there.

Please be prompt for pick up as staff and chaperones need to get home too. If your student does not have a ride home, please don’t send them to our dances unless they have made arrangements before coming to the dance.

Please remember to be careful of the blueberry bushes as you are dismissed from the dance!
