Share Your Input with the ANESD Board - Renaming Committee
Residents of the Addison Northeast community voted last fall to form a unified school district. As we start the journey of building our new unified school district, one of our first opportunities is to identify a new name. We hope you will take a minute to suggest an idea. Creative ideas are welcome!
Some Vermont communities have stayed with their old SU name, like Addison Northwest School District. Other communities have gone with their high school name, like Champlain Valley School District. Still others have come up with an entirely new name, based on something their area is known for. Some examples of this approach are Maple Run School District and Slate Valley School District. We are looking for your input about what to name our new school district! Please put in your idea today!
There are two ways to share your ideas: you can either call 453-7171 and leave a message or take a brief survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ANESD_Name.
Please submit your ideas by Friday, May 5.
On May 9, the naming committee will review all your input and narrow it down to a few choices. We will then send out a second survey with a few final name choices. We expect to present a recommendation to the full unified school district board at its May 23 meeting.
If you would like to know more about the unified school district, you can find information at https://sites.google.com/a/anesu.org/anesu/home/act-46-unification-study, or join us at a regular meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month (except July & August) at 7 pm at Mt Abe. Watch for upcoming ways to engage with your new school board and share your input.
Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas!

News from the Principal
WOW! What a wonderful “Out of the Dust” Spring Performance! I want to express appreciation to Carina Ellis, Kate LaRiviere, and Kelly Pierpont for making the idea of this presentation become a reality. The sharing of a historical event through music, dance, and theater was powerful. All of our K-6 students had an opportunity to shine on stage. The expressions of joy on their faces and the audience’s applause demonstrate that the evening was a huge success. We were so glad that so many family members could attend. Thank you.
As you know, we launched our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) work through P (positive attitude) A (accept responsibility) W (work hard) S (safe choices) this year. Now is the time for us to reach out to families and get your feedback on how well we are doing with this initiative. In this newsletter, you will find a link and a short article from Ms. Tatlock describing our School Climate Survey. It is important that family members complete this survey so that we know in what ways we are successful and in what ways we need to grow our practice. We will be sending a team of four individuals to the BEST Institute in June to continue our work on our school behavior system. The information you provide on this survey will inform this important work in June. Thank you for your participation.
We have completed our Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) testing. I want to extend a thank you to Holly Esterline and Megan Mitchell for co-facilitating our work with this assessment tool. There was a lot of coordination between schedules and equipment. Thank you.
I hope your family will enjoy the vacation week!
