The CBMS Climbing Club will begin its 4th year with a brief slide show and chance to find out what this activity is all about on Friday, Sept 30th in the library from 2:30 to 3:00 PM.  5th graders and their parents are welcome. You do not need any equipment or any experience to join - just a spirit of adventure!  We'll learn the basics at school, then go to the two climbing gyms in the Burlington area, then outdoors in 2017 when warm weather returns.

Organizing 2016-17 Odyssey of the Mind teams - The Waterbury-Duxbury Odyssey of the Mind program is forming teams now for this school year. OM is an extracurricular creative problem-solving activity open to K-8 students at Thatcher Brook and Crossett Brook schools. Teams typically have 4-7 student members and two volunteer parent coaches. During the fall and winter months, teams meet regularly to prepare their problem solutions that they present at the Vermont State OM Tournament in March. OM involves brainstorming, storytelling, art, building, acting and lots of creativity and cooperation. K-2 teams focus on fun and working in a group. Third graders and above do the same while competing against others at their grade level.  This year’s problem choices can be found at If your student is interested or just curious, come to an organizing meeting Monday, Sept. 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the CBMS cafeteria. If you cannot attend or have questions, please contact program coordinator Lisa Scagliotti at (This meeting is mainly for NEW OM team members. Teams from last year will be contacted by coaches to decide their plans for this year.)
