Greetings From Gail

May 15, 2015sme news 05152015 1

Samuel Morey received a grant from Vermont Rural Partnership this year to build classroom gardens. Now that our long, hard winter is over, we are ready to start our gardens. We will start with preschool, kindergarten, first and second this year and hope to build grades 3-6 in the fall.

A group of fifth and sixth graders attended the Learning in Place Conference which is the Vermont Rural Partnership conference. Last Friday. They presented the different themes for the classroom gardens. Students and adults from other schools in Vermont visited their display. They had three questions that they had to answer,

  • Why are classroom gardens important to Samuel Morey?
  • What will the students learn by having classroom gardens?
  • How do the classroom gardens connect to the curriculum?

A special thanks to Andrew Stimson and Mary Bryant for attending with the students and supporting our classroom gardens with their passion and expertise in gardening.

On Saturday, May 30th we will have a community garden building day. What we need is people willing to work—no expertise needed. A flyer will be sent home soon about this day.

Kindergarten Orientation

May 30th is our kindergarten orientation. If your child is five on or before August 31st, please call Angel to schedule a time on the 30th. If you know of another child that qualifies for kindergarten next year, please have them call the school at 802-333-9755.
