Congratulations to the Village School of North Bennington Class of 2020! We are excited to honor and celebrate our sixth graders with a special video graduation ceremony that was aired for the first time on Wednesday, June 10. It is available on the school’s YouTube Channel.

The video features many elements that are a traditional part of the Village School’s annual graduation ceremony, including: speeches, awards, individual student recognition, a special guest speaker, and a student slideshow at the end of the video.

Some members of the Class of 2020 are the first students ever to have attended the Village School for all seven of their elementary school years since the school’s establishment as a town academy. We are further excited to celebrate this milestone!

Thank you to videographer and Village School parent Michael Beach for producing this video and to our very own Amanda Bickford and Laura Cary, who put together the slideshow.

We invite you to share notes of congratulations on our school’s YouTube page, Facebook page, and also at NorShaft Lions Park, where families and friends can add signs to the park’s chain-link fence.
