Renaissance I AM Wall

The Renaissance community has been working on a project called the "I AM" wall. For this project we each wrote something that represents ourselves on pieces of paper to be placed on the wall. Each Renaissance student was allowed to write 5 or more adjectives. We also could write an emotion or a feeling that we're experiencing.  Recently, the Renaissance Community finished our "I AM" wall. We had everybody help put up the passages. We are very happy with how the wall turned out! The purpose of the wall is to show who you are and express your feelings. Many people opened up and expressed things that others would not know about them. It was fun to put up and many enjoyed the experience.

Tallying Transport Methods to St. Albans City School
Team Triumph received a small grant from the Vermont Energy Efficiency Program (VEEP) to study the energy cost of transportation to SACS. On Tuesday 3-15-2016, a half dozen Triumph students counted all the cars, SUVs, trucks and vans arriving at school with children. The school's video camera was also used to help count student arrivals at the back of the school. The fuel used for student transport by busing and personal vehicles will be calculated and estimated as accurately as possible. Team Triumph will share their findings within a month.
