White Day


The following students need to meet Mr. Legge outside of Fuller immediately after Chapel today: Greer Kennedy, Brooke White, Nico Sipples, Norah Blakenship, Shelby Lizotte, Jupiter McGregor, and Hayden Stephenson.


9th grade Health classes — all classes will resume in normal locations today unless you have Mrs. Urie or Ms. Bailey. Those classes report to Fuller basement for CPR training.  Mr. Legendre’s C block class should report to Fuller Basement as well.  


Student Government Petitions — if you need one, please see Mr. Ryan, that is, if he is not busy working on his lecture about procrastination. Please turn in completed petitions to Mr. Ryan by tomorrow at noon!


As part of her Capstone about the value of interacting with animals, Emma Holt has arranged for a therapy dog to be brought on campus this week before exams. They will be on Brantview Lawn today, and Friday, May 19th from 2:30 to 3:30. Come say hi Rueben and let him help you relax!


Don’t miss out on the last Outing Club trip of the year! For this adventure, we will be going rock climbing and scaling some vertical walls of granite using nothing but our fingers and toes! The weather is going to be incredible so don’t miss out on this trip! No experience is necessary, and this trip is of no cost to you. This trip is Saturday, May 20th and will depart from Brantview drive at 9am. See Mr. Holden and Mr. Weiss for details and to get your permission slips. Dare to explore!


For Bryn Whitehead’s Capstone, she researched domestic violence and its effects on children. May is Children’s’ Mental Health Awareness Month and since domestic violence is a form of child abuse, it effects children’s’ mental health. She made green ribbons for students to wear, so please help this important cause! Bryn wants to thank you for supporting her project! Feel free to continue to wear these ribbons throughout May!


Join our SJA team for the Out of the Darkness Walk this coming Saturday at the St. Johnsbury School. Our school team is: UMatter@SJA. Questions? Contact Ms. Cote or stop by Tinker Health Services.


Thank you for your generous support during last week’s Riverside Rescue fundraiser. A special note of appreciation to some Tech Comm 2 students and the Woods/Hubacz advisory for their financial support as well — we bought some kitties delicious kibble thanks to you! Donations will be taken to the rescue after school tomorrow, so if you still want to make a last-minute contribution, it can be dropped off in Mrs. Morris’s room, Ranger 212, or with Ms. Anson in the Guidance office by tomorrow morning. Remember: you make it better!


Did you know that across the world there are 132 million girls who do not attend school, which is almost half the population of the US; that one girl under the age of 18 is married every two seconds, and that girls spend 40% more time on chores than boys. She’s the First is a global organization that provides the chance for girls across the world to decide their own future; many of whom are denied education, forced to marry at a very young age, enslaved, and blocked from leadership opportunities. She’s the First’s primary goal is to raise tuition money for girls, as well as educate our local community on the importance of this issue. To kickstart our club, we will be holding a yard sale this Friday at Spring Day. All funds will go to helping a girl in need. Throughout this week, we will be taking donations of gently worn clothing, bean bags, posters, sports equipment, books, and other small items to sell at our yard sale. Please avoid donating clothing with holes, rips, or tears, or anything dirty or in bad condition. You can drop donations off in Mrs. Drew’s room, Colby 204 by the end of conference period on Thursday, May 18. Thank you in advance for your donations!


Spring Day is coming this Friday, and in addition to games and fun, there will be food sales and a yard sale! Save up for this fun occasion!


If you have a beef with Spring Day because Ultimate Rubber Chicken, the Know Your Friend Game, and Dodge Ball are awkward, you are 100% correct in your judgment. However, please recognize that walking past somebody you don’t know in the hall, asking somebody to the prom, and figuring out who to sit with at lunch on the first day of the semester is also awkward. In fact, can’t you just argue that your life is just a series of awkward moments? The more you embrace the opportunity to have fun and interact with others, things become less awkward, except for the Hula Hoop Challenge, which pretty much stays awkward every year!


Happy Birthday today to Julius Metzger and a special Happy Birthday to Cody Bradley from his advisory!
