Preparing for the FHGS Parade. The 5th and 6th graders did their parade line up in the cafeteria to prepare for the parade! Great job everyone!
FHGS held their own Thanksgiving Day Parade! Thank you 5th and 6th graders for all your hard work!
What an amazing last day before break we had! The 5th and 6th grades created float projects that required them to use a wide variety of skills including teamwork and engineering! We even had our own FHGS Parade!! Before we get to the parade photos, here is a behind the scenes look!
Reminder: School will be closed for Thanksgiving break November 22, 23 and 24. We will resume Monday, November 27th!
Kindergarten students listened to the book, "If You Find a Leaf". They used their listening skills to retell and make connections. Then they used their imagination and fine motor skills to turn a leaf into something different. The children made boats, hammocks, rocket ships and more.

SVU teachers, who are also alumni of Castleton University, came together to share their experiences in the field with two Vermont State University-Castleton classes. The classes were comprised of future educators who are either currently doing their student teaching or will be in the spring. The panel of Slate Valley teachers responded to the following prompts: What surprised you about teaching during your first few years? What successes have you experienced in teaching, and what allowed for your success? What do you wish you knew before you had your own classroom? What advice do you have for those who are soon to enter teaching? It was another great collaboration between Slate Valley and Castleton University.
Kindergarten students are learning to match numbers with the correct tally marks, and they are doing a great job!
