The Fourth Grade traveled to Schenectady, NY, to explore the miSci Museum. Among the exhibits is currently a “Design Zone” highlighting the importance of science and mathematical thinking in areas critical to building creativity and innovation: art, music, and engineering.
This week we sent home an “Important Planning Survey” letter to parents/guardians of students in grades K-5, asking if your child(ren) will be returning to the Village School for the 2023-2024 school year. It’s very helpful for our planning process to know how many students we can expect in each class.
If you prefer to complete this planning survey online, please click here to use our digital form. We would greatly appreciate your response by Friday, April 14th.
If you have any questions or concerns about the current school year or the year ahead, please call me at 802-442-5955 (ext. 201) or email me at email@example.com.
Enjoy the Easter and Passover weekend!
