Thank You Mr. D!

St. Albans Representative Corey Parent stopped by to share a resolution to honor Mr. DesLauriers for his 42 years of teaching and his many contributions to the St. Albans community.  Team USA is proud of Mr. D and his many accomplishments. Thank you for all you do for our community.  Good luck!

Lost and Found Jewelry (and other items)
Over the school year the front desk has accumulated a large amount of jewelry (bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings). We also have one watch, two sunglasses, two keys and one pedometer. All items remain unclaimed. If you lost any of these items during the school year, please stop by the front desk and describe what you lost. After the school year, unclaimed items will be considered part of the lost and found.

Open Doors Video/slideshow
Here is a collection of pictures and videos from various Open Doors programs that ran throughout the 15-16 school year, we hope you enjoy!   3 minutes long.   Link to Video

Exemplary Codesmyths Work
We would like to present the work which a Codesmyths student, who wishes to remain anonymous, was involved in this past year. Not only is it a great Haiku reflection, it does a great job describing what most Codesmyths students got to work with and teach themselves how to use this year. It also shows the student's own ability to learn (as she taught herself how to make this video), and her persistence (as she had to rework the video many times until she got the result she wanted). Two solid qualities of a life-long learner: the enthusiasm to try new things, and the determination to do it well. Enjoy!

—Ms. Tagliamonte, Mr. Roland, and Ms. Bertucci

Kindergarten (Lawyer) Made Homemade Mozzarella Pizzas on 6/9/2016
Mrs. Lawyer's students tried making mozzarella with Mrs. Smith for the second time, this time with great success. This mozzarella was added to english muffins with tomato sauce. Quite a few students gave the homemade mozzarella a try while others preferred to stick with the more familiar store-bought option.
