Walking Wednesday Results

180 students and 19 adults (199 Total) walked or biked into school on Wednesday.  Team Triumph had the most participants. Forty six percent of their students came under their own power!  Impressive.  

These are about half the Triumph students that walked or biked yesterday

We have two more official Walking Wednesday's this school year.  Our last one, on June 1st, will be one where we try to get all but our youngest students, and most of our teachers here on foot.  We want that parking lot in front of the school to be as empty as possible on June 1st -our stewardship day.

Sunrise Club Students Present their Work in Montpelier

The Sunrise Club purchased, with money from a VPA grant that the school received, bird and bat shelters.  These can be seen along the walking path and school grounds.  Two students presented their learning experience last week at The Capital Plaza in Montpelier with a poster board and a video. These students in the club, represented the much larger group.  Information about the bird roosts and bat boxes can be found in the pedestals along our walking path.

Travelers Honey Bee Pollinator Project Update

We thought the bees were going to arrive several weeks ago. They did not. Now we believe they will arrive early Friday morning (5-20-2016). The Travelers have put out a sign to remind people to avoid bothering the honey bees outside of Travelers & Mr. Pac's room. This is not an aggressive type of bee. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

For Snacks Today we have Bananas

  • Bananas “trees” are actually the world’s tallest herbaceous plant. They can reach 20 feet in height. “Herbaceous” means there is no woody stem and all the plant matter above the ground dies at the end of a yearly cycle.
  • The fruits grow off the main stems in large clusters that can weigh over 100 pounds, with up to 400 individual bananas per cluster!
