Hardwick Elementary Preschool still has openings. Stop by the office and see Christine for a registration packet.

Preschool Registration Guidelines for children in the towns of Craftsbury, Greensboro, Hardwick, Stannard, Wolcott, and Woodbury

Registration opens on February 1, for the 2018-2019 preschool year. Area preschools have limited slots, with some programs giving preference to 4 year-olds. Early submission of your registration increases the likelihood of receiving a slot in the program of your choice. In order to register, you must provide child’s proof of residency, child’s current and updated immunizations or exemption form, and child’s birth certificate.

Parents/guardians who seek a prequalified program* need to contact that program as well as register at the school in their town of residence.

The full list of prequalified providers is available at http://www.brightfutures.dcf.state.vt.us

*Under Act 166, children who are 3 or 4 by September 1, 2018, are entitled to 10 hours/35 weeks of no-cost-to-you preschool education that is provided in a prequalified program.

Acceptance is determined in the spring.



Principal Survey
This survey will be available online until Wednesday, March 21, 2018. Paper copies are available in each school's main office. I have printed some on green paper and will be sending them to the schools along with a white master copy if you need more. I will email back for a reminder to send the surveys here. Please remove the link from your site on March 22nd.

In the book, Wings, Christopher Myers' protagonist, Ikarus Jackson has wings that both make him different and potentially vulnerable. Christopher Myers explores the idea of embracing the things that make us all different and using this strength to rise above those who may hurt us or mock us. This analogy can speak to many different students struggling with many different issues surrounding difference, friendship, multiculturalism, and bullying. (taken from Christopher Myers' web site) 
In this video, Manny Fliegelman reads Wings for our Community Gathering at Hardwick Elementary.

They shared a nice write up along with pictures!
Connecting with community partners and modeling collaboration is an important part of being an artist and teacher.  So when Juedevine Youth Librarian, Diane Grenkow forwarded me a link about a project that Community Allies member Rhonda Barr was involved in called "Hardwick Rocks!", I brought the idea to 5th Grade Teacher Lisa Forbes and her students who wanted to be involved too. 

Fifth Graders are creating their own "Kindness Rocks" and placing them around the school and community.  Their goal is to spread kind words and bring joy to others through their art making.  If you happen to see a "Kindness Rock" we hope the message will make you smile, have a good feeling inside, and think about how you can be kind to others too.  Collaboration Rocks!

Mrs.Trautman's Class having fun!
