Greetings Stowe Middle School Families!
As we enter the homestretch, I am excited to reflect on all that we have accomplished this year, what we’re doing now and where we are going in 2022-2023. First, I am excited to announce that we are returning nearly all of our faculty to Stowe Middle School next year! This speaks volume in regards to our school’s climate and culture for supporting our educators, parents and students. As I work with principal colleagues around the state they’re seeing high numbers of faculty positions opening at our school and we’re not at Stowe Middle School. Having high retention, dedicated educators and collaborative teams will help us come back refreshed and better than ever at Stowe Middle School in 2022-2023!
Above the amazing faculty and staff at Stowe Middle School!
I wanted to share with you that Ms. Lauren Conti, Stowe Middle School counselor was appointed to the full time Stowe High School counselor position. We appreciate Ms. Conti’s six plus years of counseling at Stowe Middle School. We look forward to sharing with you who will be joining us in this role in the near future. Additionally, Ms. Lindsay McNall will shift from a math program aide staff position to joining Mr. Charlie Gordon next year as a second math interventionist for Stowe Middle High School. You’re welcome to reach out and congratulate these educators as they move forward into their new roles.

Finally, 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. Click here to complete Lamoille South Family Engagement Survey! Thank you in advance for your time!
Have a great week!
Dan Morrison, Principal
