When will the snow go away? Please remember to have your students bring appropriate clothing to school for recess. We have had crazy weather.
The Alburgh Community Education Center will have our Internal Field Review (IFR) on April 17th - all day. We will be having visitors from the Vermont Agency of Education, administrators and teachers from other school districts walking through our school observing the learning that is taking place and interviewing students, staff and parents. The IFR is part of the Education Quality Review (EQR). The Vermont Agency of Education reviews Education Quality Review (EQR) to help assess the degree to which the Education Quality Standards (EQS) are being addressed in Vermont schools, identify best practices and to support the continuous improvement of our schools.
As I have stated in my previous principal letters: Please continue to talk with your students about the school rules. The rules are: Be Safe! Be Responsible! Be Respectful. When analyzing our SWIS data, there has been an increase in referrals this month. Our school has a ZERO tolerance for bullying, harassment and hazing. I thank you for this support to ensure a community where students feel safe, have a sense of belonging and succeed academically and emotionally.
All 8th grade students will be required to pay for the 2019 ACEC yearbook. If this is a hardship to your family please give me a call at school. The yearbook has been completed and will be printed soon. Thank you Mrs. Lavallee and the yearbook club for making this happen.
If you have any questions regarding the budget please do not hesitate to call me at school.
