Welcome Back Students! For our seniors this is a milestone as it’s the official last welcome back from a high school break that they will experience. Congratulations seniors on making it this far into our untraditional school year and doing it with exceptional flexibility. The week before break some of our faculty decided to show their support during the morning arrival.
Some exciting for our students is the official announcement that Prom 2021 has been scheduled! Our Student Leadership Committee has been very patient in awaiting guidance on this and is eager to start finalizing the many details of this traditional and missed event. The date has been set for Saturday, May 29th and will take place at Good Old PA. Students will receive more details soon.
The Peoples Academy Class of 2021 Project Graduation is hosting a donation raffle drive and monetary donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Over 25 prizes valuing over $1,800 have been kindly donated from a variety of local businesses. Any PA Project Grad supporter who donates to the Class of 2021 from April 1st through May 1st will be entered into a drawing to win one of the amazing prizes. The drawing will take place on Green Up Day, Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 2:00 PM in the Morristown Municipal Parking Lot between the post office and MOCO. You do not need to be present to win. Donations of any amount can be emailed to Project Graduation Class of 2021, Peoples Academy, 202 Copley Avenue, Morrisville, VT 05661 or dropped off to Michele Walker in the high school front office. Please make checks payable to “Project Graduation” and include your name and telephone number so we can contact you should you win! Thank you for your support!
2021 Yearbooks: They have arrived almost a month early! Congratulations to the yearbook staff (Olivia Owen, Ethan Putvain, Ewan Putvain and Annie Boudreau) on a job well done. If you want to have one of these remembrances of our untraditional school year, contact Michele in the office to purchase one for only $55.
Spectators: As a reminder, current state guidelines for school athletics limit spectators size to 150 per event. Should we reach capacity, however unlikely, additional spectators will not be permitted to the facility. This number is expected to increase to 300 on May 1st. If you are interested in attending one of our home events, please ensure to maintain appropriate social distancing, and all spectators are expected to wear a mask at all times. Failure to comply with state guidelines will result in being asked to leave school premises.

SENIORS! If you would like to be considered for any scholarships that are given out at graduation time you must complete the Local Scholarship Application. Applications can be picked up in the guidance office, accessed via Naviance and Carrie has also emailed one to all seniors. The deadline to turn in your completed application is May 11th. If you do not complete the application on time and completely you will not be considered for any of the scholarships. NO EXCEPTIONS! NO EXTENSIONS!
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 this coming school year, but it will run a little differently than the current option. 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 in-person 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, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Lindsey, email@example.com, if this is something you wish to pursue or learn more about.
