January 9, 2015 Newsletter

"The New year: A time to bring from the past all that is right and good, to give to the future the best we have to offer."

Welcome back to school!! I am excited about starting our second half of the year. This is the time of year that I talk to each class about doing quality work. I remind them to keep giving their best. If your child is in kindergarten through second grade ask them about "Miss Quality." If your child is in the upper grades, ask them about winning attitudes and Olympic Training Centers and giving 100% and why 99% is not good enough. I hope to see my quality bulletin board filled with lots of quality work. Hopefully you will be seeing a "I do quality work at SME" magnet come home with your student soon.

Winter Recess Reminder

Please remember to send gloves, hats, boots, snow pants with your child. We will go outside every day the temperatures are above single digits and there is no rain.

Also please remember that if a child is well enough to be in school, he/she will be expected to participate in physical education class or recess. A doctor's note is required to be excused from physical education class or recess. This is stated on page 18 of the Handbook for Parents and Students. The only exceptions are after a concussion or broken limb.

School Compost Monitor Position Now Available

Samuel Morey started composting this year. With the help of Central Vermont Solid Waste Management we have done training for our students and have been working on a system to compost food scraps from breakfast and lunch.

Many schools that compost have a cafeteria and the composting is a little bit easier than when the students eat in their classrooms. The sixth graders have been great helping to collect the composting buckets.

To help us with our new composting procedures, Central Vermont Solid Waste Management will hire a School Compost Monitor. This position is part-time for two hours per day, five days a week during our lunch periods. The time is from 11:30-1:30.

In this position, the person will monitor how the school organics program works, assist students and staff by answering questions, supervising the diversion process, and serve as the on-site contact for Central Vermont Solid Waste Management.

If you know someone who would be interested in this position, please contact:
