The Social Studies Department is pleased to announce that the Boys and Girls State programs will run this summer. If you have an interest in politics, leadership, and public policy, this is a phenomenal opportunity. Four boys and four girls will be chosen to represent the Academy at this week-long conference over the summer. While learning about state and local government, delegates will run campaigns, serve in a mock government, and set policy for the great state of Vermont. The girls will meet virtually from June 20th through June 24th, and the program is now open to rising seniors, as well as current seniors. The boys will meet in person from June 20th through June 25th at NVU – Lyndon, and the program will only accept rising seniors. If you have any interest or questions, email Mr. Mantius at peter.mantius@stjlabs.com or stop by his classroom during Conference Period in Ranger 211 to pick up an application. All costs will be taken care of by sponsors and the Social Studies Department. 

 

Over break, seven Academy students participated in a Model UN Conference hosted by a school in Massachusetts. Their committees discussed topics as varied at the Fall of the Roman Empire, the French Revolution, weapons that use artificial intelligence, Brexit, and environmental refugees. Two of our student delegates were cited for their exemplary participation. Payton Molleur earned an honorable mention for his committee, and Hannah MacDonald was named ‘outstanding delegate’ for her committee. Thank you to all Academy participants. If you are not in the Model UN club but would like to be, please reach out to Mr. Ehrean. The club meets alternately on Mondays and Tuesdays.

 

Happy Birthday today to Clara Andre!
