Personal Learning Plans coming to the WWSU! It is with great enthusiasm that we inform you that CBMS and HUHS/MS are recipients of the Vermont Agency of Education Flexible Pathways Grant.  We were notified last week that we have received the full amount ($10,000)to begin the work toward implementing the Personal Learning Plan component of the Vermont education legislation ACT 77 - or Flexible Pathways. This money will be used to plan the design and implementation of personal learning plans between the two schools. The first tier of this work will be a personal learning plan work group comprised of students and adults representative of CBMS and HUHS/MS, grades 5-12, that will be tasked with this design process. There will be between twelve to fifteen members on the PLP work group. If you are interested in learning more about Act 77 or Personal Learning Plans, please visit this Agency of Education website.

Nordic Team Update:  The combined Crossett Brook and Harwood Middle School Nordic Team has continued to show their mighty talent! On Friday,January 24th, the team raced in their first home race of the season which was held during Waterbury Winterfest at Dac Rowe Field. Jordan Kulis was our top finisher, in which she placed 3rd overall for the Middle School division and 2nd for the Middle School girls. Wynne Plagge also competed in her first race of the season and did a marvelous job! 

On Wednesday, January 29th, the skiers traveled to Craftsbury to take on Peoples Academy. It was a beautiful day and the course was fast! Our top finisher was Kyle-Marie Hekeler as she took home 1st place for the Middle School Girls and 2nd place overall for the Middle School division. Jordan Kulis finished 2nd for girls and 3rd overall. Wynne Plagge had another great competition finishing shortly behind Kyle-Marie and Jordan. Congratulations to Kyle-Marie, Jordan, and Wynne on a job well done! Keep up the hard work! The Middle School Nordic Team will be racing this week at Morse Farm and Colchester.
