34th Annual Road Race

The Road Race was a huge success! 
Thank you to all that came out and supported our school.
The weather was a bit cold and damp, but just about perfect for an early morning run. Many of the kids who were hanging around between races had a blast in the bounce houses and ate some delicious snacks. 
A special thank you to Calli Thomas and Jessie Witcher for organizing the race and thank you to all the volunteers who helped out.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award

posted Apr 27, 2017, 6:33 AM by Tony Francescutti

Each  year, the State of Vermont  since 1957, Vermont students in grades four through eight have selected their favorite book from a list of 30 nominees. Student who have read at least five of these books are able to participate in the voting as well as see a local "game show" about the books. Some students, who have read at least 8 books, are invited to participate in the game show.
This year we had three students read all 30 books! Congrats to Brooke Bertrand, Jordan Bertrand and Isabell Stevens (our game show contestant from Sudbury). 
We are currently purchasing next year's book list and students can get a jump start on them for next year.

SCS students made a short trip over the The Compass Arts Center in Brandon the other day to participate in a collaborative art project with six other schools in RNESU. The kids used Sumi Ink to create a several thousand square foot mural on the walls of the main gallery space. Read more about it here and check out the story on WCAX.
