Hi Friend in Solar,

I'd love for you to join me and my friends at Waterbury LEAP and Crossett Brook Middle School to celebrate and observe the ongoing installation of Vermont’s largest school solar system. 

At our “Solar Show & Tell” event we'll be talking about this exciting solar project and how much money the school will save on their electric bills. You'll also have the opportunity to join other Waterbury and Duxbury solar homeowners and benefit sustainability education at Crossett Brook by taking the Solar for Scholars Challenge!

Over 13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. The documentary film BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.  The CBMS PTO is showing this film on Thursday, Nov 7th, beginning at 6:30PM in the Cougar Cafetorium.  A brief discussion will happen after the film.   BULLY is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a different facet of America’s bullying crisis. Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year, BULLY opens a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied kids, revealing a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders. It documents the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy “kids will be kids” clichés, and it captures a growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities and in society as a whole.  Parents play a vital role in supporting their kids, promoting upstander rather than bystander behavior, and teaching and modeling empathy in the home.  Please note this is rated PG 13.
