May 13

Do you like to run? Come and celebrate the River of Light Parade through a local run to raise money for the parade.  On June 12th at CBMS, there is a 3-mile run and a 1-mile fun run. The registration is from 8:00 to 8:45AM, and the race starts at 9AM. The suggested donation will be $5 for kids and $10 for adults and -10 for families of 4 or more.  There will be a raffle and all the money goes to the River of Light Parade. The raffle costs will be included with the registration. There will be refreshments after the race and we will sell River of Light t-shirts at the race. This race is organized by Maisie Franke and Charlie Flint for a Brainado school project at CBMS. Thanks for your support!

Vermont School Board of Education Approves WWSU Plans for School Merger, by Brigid Scheffert Nease, Superintendent. On April 19, 2016 at the Capital Plaza in Montpelier, the State Board of Education approved the plan submitted by the WWSU Study Committee to merge our existing seven school boards into one. As most taxpayers know by now, the WWSU Study Committee, Executive Board, and administration have been meeting twice a month for almost nine months studying this law and its ramifications. Act 46 requires supervisory unions to merge into one board with one budget in what Act 46 calls a "preferred structure" that serves grades Pre K-12. We can do this now, with some local choice along the way, and receive incentives, or we can sit back and wait until the Agency of Education(AOE) and State Board of Education(SBE) merge us anyway by 2019. Doing it later means doing it their way, without incentives and enduring other serious negative financial consequences for several years.  To read the full Op-Ed, visit this link.

  1. Besides not recognizing CBMS the Y says their license ends at age 12.

    Suggest this be clarified.
