A Friday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

It's hard to believe we have already been in school for a month. The kids are doing extremely well—they have acclimated to new teachers, friends, schedules, and homework. I see happy faces in the halls and students that are engaged and ready to learn. Westshire is a great place to be!

I have exciting news to share. First, we are adding a second kindergarten class. We are so happy that we have 24 awesome kindergarten students, but in order to give them the best experience, we are hiring a part-time teacher who will work in the mornings with half of the students. Please join me in welcoming Sarah Molesworth to the Westshire team. Sarah is a community member who lives in West Fairlee and has two children in the district. She taught at the Fairlee School as a kindergarten teacher and when the district formed, she continued to teach at Rivendell.

Secondly, I'd like to introduce two other people who are supporting the staff and students of Westshire. Robert Bryant has provided crisis response services for schools and hospitals and youth service organization in the northeast during the past twenty eight years. His work with Rivendell utilizes his skills as a coach in support of all staff. He helps staff support students and is a member of our education support team at all three schools. The majority of Mr. Bryant's work is in helping staff to learn new ways to respond to challenging behaviors.

She will also be a support to families that may need services outside of school.
