WALKING CONTEST BETWEEN
LEARNING COMMUNITIES STARTED
MONDAY MAY 7TH!
It will run for four weeks from May 7th through June 1st.
There are two prizes of a one-hour pool party at the St. Albans Recreation Pool next to our school
1. Be the learning community with the most number of laps completed on the walking path (1-hour pool party).
2. Be the learning community with the highest number of walkers/bikers tallied on Walking Wednesdays over that time period (1-hour pool party).
All laps must be completed on the ½ mile gravel walking path. Laps indoors, around the gyms or beyond the school campus on field trips will not count! Tally sheets will be left on clipboards on a table next to the recess shed.
The success of this contest depends on the honesty of all participants. Only record the actual amount of laps you completed. Thank you.
On SBAC testing days all laps around the walking path count double towards the contest. The people doing the tally at the end of the week will double your laps for you on SBAC days.
Tally sheets will be analyzed each Monday and updates on the contest scores will be provided each Tuesday in our announcements.
BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY IS MAY 9TH
Get your bike out. Pump up the tires. Find your helmet or get one from Mrs. Wade in the Library. Then bike into school on Wednesday.
Bikers will receive a snap-on reflective wrist band LINK TO 8-SECOND-LONG VIDEO

MIDDLE SCHOOL DISTRICT MUSIC FESTIVAL REPORT
Students from northwestern Vermont gathered at MVU on Friday May 4th and Saturday May 5th to learn and make music together. The Middle School District One Festival was made up of 6th, 7th and 8th graders who participated in the Concert Band, Wind Ensemble and Chorus. The Ensembles were taught by guest conductors from around the state. A concert was held on Saturday afternoon for the community. LINK TO 16 PICTURES
Thank you Ms. Hartman for the photos
We had excellent weather for the first day of the walking contest. Temperatures were in the high 50s, and we had sunshine and little wind. Amazing! Teams came out in droves to complete laps.
With the first real day of springlike weather, kids really enjoyed their recess. LINK TO 12 PICTURES
Mr. Barker's Pre-K students practiced writing the letter "G" in the first hour of school on Monday 5-7-2018. On one table shaving cream was spread onto the surface and children got to play with the foam as well as practice their writing skills. LINK TO 12 PICTURES
Students working with Ms. Bertucci in the makerspace created reflective stickers to add to bicycle helmets. The gently used helmets were recently donated to St. Albans City School by Local Motion. The goal is to hand out those helmets to students who need them and who will use them. Helmets can be gotten from Mrs. Wade in the library and at the sign-in table on Walking/biking Wednesday this week.
Here is a quick photo check in on the Barker class pets. The little pups are no longer teeny. Every rodent was energetic and very curious to see the camera pointed their way.
