SPEECH TO 7th AND 8th GRADERS
Dear St. Albans City School Families:
On Tuesday, September 17th at 11:30am in the gymnasium, our 7th and 8th-grade students will have the opportunity to hear John Halligan, international speaker and author, address the impact of bullying and harassment in schools. His presentation connects with the work of our teachers and school counselors to support the social and emotional health and wellbeing of our students.
SOCCER GAME AND PRACTICE PICTURES WANTED.
Please share them with Mr. Craib. firstname.lastname@example.org
IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION
Children are assigned to one route and one stop only (unless already approved by the administration for daycare situations). For the safety of your children, bus passes will not be given unless for an emergency and at the discretion of the administration. Please make alternate arrangements other than changing a bus. The process for changing any dismissal plans for your children is challenging and difficult and we want to be sure your child gets where they need to go.
Please go over these rules with your children: LINK TO RULES
We are collecting paper box tops for education and submitting them the last week of October. We will do one final paper submission in the spring. Paper box tops are going away and will now be digital. To participate please download the app. Please turn in any collected box tops to Ms. Vaillancourt @ the front desk.

(from the chicken managers of team USA)
We’re very excited about the chickens becoming part of the St. Albans City School family!
1. Be gentle with the chickens. When picking them up, hold their wings down or let them perch on your arm or shoulder
If they seem like they do not wish to be picked up, please respect their space. Grabbing at them can hurt their wings or pull their feathers. They may peck you or claw you.
2. No more than 6 students in the coop at one time. Too many people scares them; please take turns.
3. Please do not spread food in the chicken coop. You can leave fruit in the glass dishes for the chickens to eat.
4. Place the chickens back in the coop when you leave. It is okay if the chickens leave the coop; you can leave the door open. It will get closed at the end of the school day by Team USA.
5. All of the chickens have names. Ask Team USA students what their names are and keep your eyes out for pictures!
6. When you leave, make sure to use the hand sanitizer.
7. If you see a problem, let someone in Team USA know and we’ll take care of it!
8th GRADE PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR BOOK FAIR
We are looking for parents of 8th graders who would like to volunteer with the book fair. It is held on September 26th from 7:30am until 7:00pm. All proceeds go to benefit the 8th-grade class trip. Please contact Margaux Vaillancourt @ email@example.com. Thank you!
WALKING SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM STUDENT LEADERS
Selected and potential leaders meet in the Library Space Thursday, September 12th at 7:45 AM to get an update on the program.
RENAISSANCE NEEDS YOUR COMPOST!
Renaissance wants your breakfast and snack compost from your classrooms. Please bring it to the Renaissance community and dump it into the buckets at the end of the hall by 2:00 pm each day. Renaissance will compost the food waste to make nutrient-rich soil for the school gardens.
Please make sure there is no dairy or trash in the compost.
