News from the Principal

Dear Families,

We have had a great week at MCS!  Our MCS students have been reading the Dorothy Canfield Fisher books all year.  The Dorothy Canfield Fisher (DCF) award celebrates excellence for children’s literature.  Each year there is a list of about 20 books that have received this honor.  Each spring, ANESU hosts a DCF tournament.  Students who attend need to answer questions related to each of the DCF books.  Our students did a very nice job representing Monkton at this event on Tuesday.   

Also on Tuesday, all students and staff enjoyed the Vermont Symphony Orchestra A cappella group.  Thank you to Richard Sherman for arranging for this special presentation for our students.  Did you know that the VSO can sign “rap”?  What a treat to enjoy a live vocal presentation.

Our Wednesday Early Release day was very productive.   Our staff engaged in school safety planning. It was helpful to have the time to practice and debrief what we would do differently to keep students safe and calm, in the event of an emergency.  Teachers also had the opportunity to collaborate with their grade level team members to support their work.  We value and appreciate this time together.

Yesterday was Outdoor Classroom Day.  Our students enjoyed many learning activities outside.  It was wonderful that the weather cooperated for this event.   Ask your child what learning activities they did outside.

Tomorrow is our Garden Work Day from 8-12 in the morning.   I think that the weather will cooperate for us to complete our “to do list” before the raindrops begin.  Should it be inclement in the morning, please check the Monkton Central School webpage. If  the event is cancelled, an announcement will be posted.  Please consider joining us for the whole time or a portion of the morning.   Thank you to our coordinators Joie Crary, Emmalee Cherington, and Stacy Carter for helping to organize this event.   I hope to see many families on Saturday!

Enjoy the weekend.

Betsy
