Attention Parents of 7th Graders - Our yearly Lift-Up Letter Project is upon us! Please take a few moments to read this information to learn more about our letter writing project for this year's 7th-grade students. Letters are due in late April, but the details of the project need your attention now. Thanks for taking the time to participate, and for encouraging your family members and those close to your 7th-grader, to do so as well. Letter to Parents 2018 Jen Hempey, School Counselor

Middle School Volleyball Club for 5th-8th graders​ - Volleyball is the 4th most popular sport in the world and is also the most popular girls high school sport in the United States. It is so popular that many high schools in Vermont are starting to add boys teams, too. Mark your calendars for May 8th from 5-7 PM for the first meeting of the CBMS Volleyball Club. We will have a short organizational meeting for parents and students at the first session, then get on with the fun! All interested HUUSD Middle School boys and girls, grade 5-8, are invited. We also invite parents with volleyball experience to attend. The club will meet every Tuesday from May 8th until the end of the school year, from 5-7pm. Harwood varsity coach David Stapleton, along with varsity players and experienced parents, will focus on teaching the fundamental skills and rules of the game. We also hope to continue to meet in the fall/winter, and to eventually assemble a team to participate in the Chittenden County Middle School March Madness Volleyball League in March/April 2019. Students interested in playing and experienced parents interested in volunteering can contact Dona Culver at

"What is Gained and What is Lost When We Move?" The evening will begin with a "Gallery Walk" celebrating Harwood’s links to the International community. From 5:00- 6:00 members of the Peace Alliance and the International Relief Club will share their projects and initiatives, and Harwood's international students will be answering questions bout their experiences in Vermont. Chris Urban's Golden Cage photo exhibit and the work of Global Studies students will be on display, and there will be interactive activities for all participants to investigate the myriad of ways in which our school and community are linked to the greater world. From 6:00- 7:15 there will be a Socrates Cafe discussion focusing on the question,"What is gained and what is lost when we move?" Students from Noble Academy in Chicago will be participating as well as well as members of our local community. This event is open to the public, and refreshments featuring local Vermont products as well as international fare will be served. It is sponsored by our Harwood library, the Joslin Memorial Library and the Waterbury library. Come and support the work of our students who are working with care and compassion for the benefit of our global community.
