The warm weather has the entire school filled with a buzz. It’s great to see classes taking advantage of outdoor learning opportunities.  It’s also fun to see and hear the student excitement around the Prom that is coming up this Saturday.  Prom night for seniors is symbolic of the past four years of learning, friendship and school spirit. It also marks the start of a long line of celebratory events, as we slowly wind down their high school experience and they move toward the beginning of true adulthood. 

Prom 2022, An Enchanted Forest: PA Prom 2022 will be held on Saturday, May 14, at the Mansfield Barn in Jericho.  The Grand March will begin at 6:30 and there will be dancing from 7-10pm.  Tickets are on sale now during lunch in the cafeteria, or students may purchase tickets from Michele at any time. The deadline for purchasing tickets and registering guests is this Thursday, May 12th.

Please help in ensuring that your student’s parties, prom, graduation and other end of the year festivities are memorable and safe. Please join us in making every effort to prevent alcohol or other drug use. Alcohol and other drugs, such as marijuana, over-the-counter, and prescription drugs, impair judgment, perception and motor coordination skills. Youth often underestimate the impact that drugs have.  In order to provide a safe environment for your children during year-end events, but also year-round, consider the following strategies:

  1. Talk about expectations around alcohol and other drugs
  2. Monitor your teen
  3. Spread the word and make connections with other parents
  4. Know the warning signs of a problem

Learn more about these strategies and how to take action from ParentUp (http://parentupvt.org/), an initiative of the Vermont Department of Health.

The truth is no matter how much we support or shelter our children, they will face situations and stresses that can open the door to substance abuse and other serious issues. While students may complain about our concern and vigilance, studies show that the key reason kids give for not drinking is that they don’t want to disappoint their parents. The truth is that children care deeply about their parents’ opinions—even if they don’t show it directly.  Thank you for your anticipated assistance and cooperation.

Lamoille South Family Engagement Survey:  The Lamoille South Unified Union School District is working to provide every child with a high quality education in a safe and supportive environment. We would like to survey our families to see how we are doing when it comes to parent and family engagement. We ask that you please complete a separate survey for each school you are involved with. The results of this survey will be used by district and school-based leadership teams to set goals for the upcoming year. The Community Advisory Council helped develop this survey. If you could please take a few minutes to complete this survey we would greatly appreciate it.

Yearbook 2022:  Limited copies available.  If your student has not yet reserved a copy they should do so NOW by making a down-payment or paying in full with Michele in the main office.  The total cost of the yearbook is $58.
