EVENTS OR NOTICES
Team Triumph needs your empty plastic bottles (2 liter, water bottles, soda bottles, etc.) for a science project that we will be engaged in after the break. Mrs. Levine & Mrs. Morrissey would love it if you could bring them in for us at any point between now and the end of March. We will gladly be around to collect them if that works best for you, or you can deliver them at your convenience. Thank you for your support!
By Wednesday the 21st we wanted three things to be handed to the Yearbook
Committee. If you have not done that already, please do so today.
1. We would like baby pictures emailed to Mr. Craib, Yuki, or Pilot. If not emailed
please bring them to Mr. Craib and we will digitize the photos.
2. Superlatives will be handed out on paper and those need to be turned into Renee
3. Lastly, we need your yearbook surveys submitted.

PICTURES AND REPORTS
The Renaissance community has been studying climate change. We made a podcast to help educate others about it.
Many of our students contributed to the audio recording with research and our voices. This is the LINK TO OUR PODCAST. It is approximately 20 minutes long and you might want to try at least a minute or two of it to see what you think.
HOPE (Hands On Practical Education)
PRESENTED TO THE MAPLE RUN SCHOOL DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD
HOPE has long been engaged in engineering and completing a range of incredible projects here at St. Albans City School: benches, bridges, stepping stools, signs and much more. Now HOPE is involving a substantial number of students in their program through "internship" experiences of 1-5 hours per week. HOPE students use math, computers, and tons of hand and power tools to build impressive products. On Wednesday night, HOPE interns and teachers presented what they are doing to the MRUSD School Board. Their work and goals were well received and encouraged. The two projects displayed for the board were a maple sap collection sled and the outline of a new school sign. LINK TO 21 PICTURES
Mrs. Walsh's students experienced a visit from Jessica Frost of RiseVT. She played several games with the students and read the students a book, all focused on healthy food choices. The students were very attentive and eager to take part in everything Jessica offered. She received a big hug from everyone just before she departed. Today's visit was a reward for achieving Bronze status on RiseVT's checklist for achieving healthy life choices. Mrs. Walsh's students will earn two more fun and instructional visits from Jessica before the end of the school year. Is any other classroom interested in doing stuff with RiseVT? Talk to Mr. Craib if you are. LINK TO 100 PICTURES
