Students and staff at PA encouraged students to ‘Do the right thing, when no one is watching’ this summer and going forward at Peoples Academy and in life.

We are having a great final week!  Today we had our Final Community Meeting which included some student and staff recognitions and awards.  Below is the transfer of our beloved Goldie- The Golden Wolf, which is passed from TA to TA depending on who collects the most points  throughout the year, as part of our TA Challenges.  For the coming 2022-2023 school year Goldie will accompany Ms. Donovan’s TA wherever they may go.

The Peoples Academy Stage Company will perform their Spring play this week!  Come and see ‘The One About You’ A Romantic Comedy written by PA Alumni Marcel Freda.  There will be three performances this week, Thursday-Saturday at 7:00pm. Doors unlock at 6:30pm and entry fee is donation at the door.

From the Fall Musical – this Spring show will be UNMASKED!

Please Join Us:  On Tuesday, June 14th we will be having our annual Last Chapel Ceremony beginning at 8:30am. All students are encouraged to attend Last Chapel. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the only students who are required to stay are those with any missing or unfinished work that may not have been completed during our Assessment Schedule.  It is our hope that senior families will be able to attend and capture memories after the ceremony with the senior class photo. Seniors will have mandatory graduation practice from 1:00 to 2:00 pm that afternoon. On Thursday, June 16th we will have our traditional Commencement Ceremony beginning at 6:30pm.  After the ceremony the seniors will embark on a short parade through town followed by their annual Project Graduation celebration. Come out and show your support.

Summer Recovery: Peoples Academy will be able to provide limited learning opportunities this summer for students who haven’t quite met proficiency, but are close.  We will have teachers available throughout the summer for students who need some extra time and instruction to reach proficiency* in all or part of the course. In-person support options will be available depending on the circumstance.  Proficiency recovery will be individualized depending on the needs of each student and the availability of the teacher for that particular content area. Depending on individual needs, students may be given supported time to complete or improve specific assignments or they may be assigned  additional projects.

Students who are not close to meeting proficiency as their courses come to an end, will need to work with their counselor to either retake that particular course, or find an appropriate alternative.  Please reach out to Carrie or Lindsey in the guidance office if you have any questions or concerns.

Senior families, please review the Senior Schedule.  This letter includes important end of year information such as rehearsal and celebration times.  All seniors will be sent an email reminder which will include the same information. 

Student Devices will be required to return to school after their last exam on either Friday, June 10th and/or Monday, June 13th.  Collection will take place in the Library/Computer Lab space.  If your student requires a device over the summer, please make arrangements with their school counselor or Michele and hand in the device.  Once updated, it will be returned to the student for summer use.

PA & PAML Community Advisory Council:  This summer PA and PAML will be launching a Community Advisory Council.  This group will meet regularly (probably once a month) to help PA and PAML make progress toward our district’s goals (Instruction, Equity, Collaborative Teams) as well as to provide vital feedback necessary to keep both ends of our building moving forward in a positive direction.  We are seeking as diverse a group as possible to join in this effort.  

Please indicate your interest in joining by filling out the PA and PAML Community Advisory Council form.  It’s possible that we may have more interest than what is optimal for a well functioning group.  If we do get such a high level of interest (and we sure hope we do!) we will select a diverse and representative group from this list. 

Yearbook 2022:  YEARBOOKS ARE IN!  We have limited copies left available for purchase.  If your student has not yet purchased one, Michele in the main office will be happy to help.  The total cost of the yearbook is $58.

Co-Curricular Activities

Tonight we are wishing our baseball team the best of luck in the semi-finals at Bellows Falls.

COVID-19 Testing:  As a reminder, schools are NOT being re-supplied with covid-19 tests moving forward. In addition, with the school year ending it’s good to plan ahead for testing to keep family/friends/the community safe and healthy during the summer months.  Here is where you can get tests/tested https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/testing/where-get-tested

FREE HEALTH DEPARTMENT TESTING You can be tested at a Health Department testing site through the end of June, through your healthcare provider, or at many local pharmacies. People with or without symptoms can be tested at most testing locations.Free take-home tests that give you rapid results are available at many Health Department testing sites! Testing is recommended for people with symptoms, and close contacts of someone with COVID-19 who are not up to date on vaccines. We encourage Vermonters to have home tests on hand, in case they develop symptoms.  When you make an appointment, you can choose from three types of tests:  Take-home antigen, Take-home LAMP (similar to PCR), PCR.

You can get up to four antigen test kits for each appointment (there are two tests per kit, for eight tests total), but only one LAMP per appointment.  You can make an appointment (online or call 802-863-7240) or just walk in. An appointment guarantees you a test. ASL interpretation is available by video at all Health Department testing sites.
