White Day

 

Students — now that cold weather is upon us, your C-block classroom will be open as an indoor dining option. You will still need to go to the dining hall to get your food, but you are able to bring it back to the classroom to eat inside if you wish.

 

Jenks Studio has decided to return today and tomorrow, as there are several students who have not had their photo taken. If you are an underclassman, and have not had your photo taken, please stop by Fuller Hall during your study hall or free block today! As a reminder — even if you do not plan to place an order with Jenks, we still need your photo for the yearbook.

 

Are you taking English second semester? Would you still like help and support to participate in the Poetry Out Loud competition? All students are welcome to take part and have a chance of competing to take part in the annual Graham S. Newell Declamation.

Congratulations to Hannah Angell, Ashley Fox, Maddie Hurlbert, and Silas Pearson for their participation in the Rotary Youth Leadership Conference (RYLA) this past June, held virtually over 3 days. These four students were selected by St. Johnsbury Rotary for this honor based on their experiences with leadership and interest in the program. RYLA brought together youth from VT, NH, and Quebec to share, evolve, and learn to be more effective and self-confident leaders in their schools, teams, communities, and everyday life. Congratulations to Hannah, Ashley, Maddie, and Silas. You may pick up your certificates from RYLA at the Headmaster’s Office.
