May 14

7th and 8th grade French in 12-13 will be an elective, with 7th grade French being Tuesdays/Thursdays all year long, and 8th grade French being Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays.  Look for sign-up forms coming home with current 6th and 7th graders prior to June 1.  

Early Release Day on June 20th- this is the last student day, and dismissal will begin at 12:10- please expect your child home roughly 20 minutes after a "normal" early release day.


This Wednesday!  Please come join in for Waterbury's 1st-ever Ride of Silence to honor those who have been killed or injured riding bicycles on roads to ride together, show our appreciation to folks who love to bike downtown & around Waterbury, & help raise awareness of the need to have safe roads, bike paths & trail systems helping to connect us from place to place.   Folks are asked to arrive at Rusty Parker at 5:30 with their bike and helmet -  (I'll have sign-in sheets/release forms & stickers)  Route:  Depart Rusty Parker / Park Row, Left onto South Main St, Left onto Demerritt Place, behind GMCR, out Railroad St., to Stowe St, Right to High Street, right onto High & up around Thatcher Brook via Armory, up to and around Hillcrest Terrace, back down Armory & High Street, left onto Stowe St to lights; Left onto South Main St, right down to Randall St, right around back of State Complex, right onto South Main St. Right onto Rte. 100 up to across from Crossett Brook School, turning right up and over the hill to Duxbury village where pavement meets dirt roads.  At that point, on school grounds, I will take a break with the group for a couple minutes, read a few names, take a moment of silence, and direct all those who have only road bikes to follow Peter Plagge who will lead a group back into Waterbury with one more loop up and down South Main St. while I take the dirt road, down the River Road, over the Winooski Street Bridge, right onto the Cross Vermont Trail, behind the State Complex, back onto Park Row & back to Rusty Parker by 7PM.  To learn more, go to:  http://www.rideofsilence.org/main.php

Also this Wednesday!  "How Much is Too Much Internet, Texting, & Games?"  6-7:30 at the Waitsfield Elementary School.  Free childcare.  Call 496-9715 for more information.   Whether you are the parent of a 19 year old or a 4 year old, it is likely that technology is here to stay.  Come and learn about the benefits and costs of technology and media for today's family.  This dynamic and engaging workshop will both challenge and entertain as we look at how these little devices have become such powerful players in our culture and, more importantly, our families and relationships.
