Introduction
Quarter 3 is officially over!  Congratulations to students, teachers and families for tackling this school year despite the hurdles we’ve faced this year.  As Quarter 4 begins and spring emerges through what little snow we have left, our students are shining like the sun with dedication, pride and perseverance as spring activities and athletics emerge. 

Quarter 3 Mastery reports will be mailed home as soon as we have them ready.  In an effort to communicate effectively with families about students academic progress as quickly as possible, we will soon transition to distributing students’ Mastery Reports electronically. This process will most likely begin with the 2021-2022 school year.  Mailed copies will be available by request. Quarter 3 student Mastery Reports will be available via the Parent Portal once finalized and we encourage you to try out this service.

The Peoples Press: Issue #3 2021 now available.  Check out our student generated ideas, opinions and concerns with the newest edition from our Journalism students. 

Healthy Lamoille Valley Survey:  It’s time for Healthy Lamoille Valley’s bi-annual community and parent survey! We need your feedback! Healthy Lamoille Valley and community partners will use the information you share to inform upcoming work around preventing and reducing youth substance misuse in the Lamoille Valley. Thank you in advance.  www.surveymonkey.com/r/HLVparent2021 

Bottle Drive:  Since PA Project Graduation had such a great turnout with the last bottle drive they have decided to see if we can do it again.  On Saturday, April 10th from 10:00-2:00 PA seniors will be collecting bottle donations in the lot across from MOCO.  We know our community loves to support our students and this small donation goes a long way.

Yearbooks:  Now is the time to order your copy of the 2021 Peopleonian! We only have a limited number of copies available, so please ORDER NOW.  The yearbook committee is hard at work finalizing the pages to document this interesting and different school year. A yearbook costs $55. Payment plans are available – just order one with at least a down payment to make sure you have one in June. Contact Michele in the office to order or with questions.

Athletics
All-Star Honors:  We would like to congratulate our All-Stars and “Dream Dozen” roster athletes.  The Vermont Basketball Coaches Association has announced Gracie Beck, Melaina Fogg and Shelby Wells for girls basketball along with Charlie Viet and Tamirat Tomlinson for boys basketball.  Way to go team!

Guidance Announcements
Dear Students and Families,

We are currently in the process of building our schedule for next year.  Students have been given course registration sheets and have been meeting with Carrie and Lindsey about their thoughts.  We want you to let you know that a fully remote option will still be available for students this coming school year, but it will run a little differently than the current opton.  We will still use VTVLC classes.  However, students will be managed through Peoples Academy rather than  the Lamoille South Virtual Collaborative Academy (LSVCA).  Please let us know as soon as possible if you are thinking about the fully remote option for next year.  VTVLC classes are also available to students who attend PA, but are interested in taking only one or two classes online.  This may be because of scheduling conflicts, making up for lost credit, getting ahead, or the class is something we don’t offer at PA and it sounds interesting.   Again, reach out as soon as possible to Carrie, carrie.felice@lsuu.org, or Lindsey, lindsey.yablonowski@lsuu.org, if this is something you wish to pursue or learn more about.

College Cost Junior Families Night: On Wednesday, April 7th from 6pm-7pm there will be a presentation for parents/guardians of Juniors to learn more about managing college costs. VSAC’s presentation provides an overview of how families pay for college and the different types of financial aid available. Everything you need to join the Zoom presentation is below. Please let me know if you have any questions (888-7551) and I look forward to seeing you there! ~Lindsey
