Greetings Stowe Middle School Families,

I hope you were able to participate in our recent parent conferences held last Friday.  We would love your feedback about how your experience was with this important component of our reporting system Please click this Survey link to provide your feedback.

We will be administering the statewide assessment, formerly known as SBAC this spring across all grade levels. Testing will occur during the weeks of May 3rd through May 17th. More detailed information about this testing will be forthcoming as we get closer to the testing window.

We are getting excited about the upcoming performance of Charlotte’s Web that our students have been working really hard on. To see a preview of the show, please click the following link to watch a trailer: ​ In addition, please click Here to check out the website and get your tickets.

Our spelling bee champ, 7th grader, Linden Smith competed at the state level and came in 4th place overall!!  Congratulations to her and all of our students who took the risk of competing.

This week, our 8th graders traveled to the State House and the Vermont History Museum in Montpelier. They enjoyed the opportunity to expand their learning outside of the classroom.

We also welcomed the Vermont Jazz Ensemble this week and the entire school had the pleasure of seeing a performance that included both of our music teachers and several students. Our band students got to work with these musicians during their band sessions as well.
