MUSIC IN MS. DENNIS' CLASSROOM Ms. Cameron-Muscente teaches music to our youngest students, often going from classroom to classroom to sing and play instruments with the children. These pictures were taken of one multifaceted session in Ms. Dennis' classroom where her students, sang, danced, and played various basic musical instruments. One of the songs they learned from Ms. Cameron Muscente was performed using sign language. LINK TO 32 PICTURES
POSSIBILITY OF A NEW SWIMMING POOL AT HARD'ACK LINK TO ARTICLE on the VT Digger News Site.
Construction of a new pool would be a collaborative project between the City and Town of St. Albans.
The pool would be covered in winter so that swimming could take place year-round.
There would likely be free van transport up to the pool from the more distant parts of the city.
The old pool next to St. Albans City School would be removed - presumably after the new one was finished. The current St. Albans pool is too old to maintain.
User fees have yet to be determined.
It could start being built next summer.
WEATHER Dress warmly for outside recess.

VEGETABLE OF THE MONTH - WINTER SQUASH
Delicata, Acorn, and Butternut... oh my! There are a plethora of winter squash varieties just waiting for you to try! Here's an extensive list, for those curious enough to try them all. What makes winter squash different from its summertime counterpart? The rind. Winter squash is harvested in the fall when the seeds have matured fully and the skin has hardened into a tough rind. This thick, protective layer allows the squash to keep throughout the winter, making it a staple in dishes during the colder months. The skin is inedible in all winter squash varieties EXCEPT delicata squash, which can be eaten rind and all. What is your favorite kind of winter squash?
