As the time of year approaches for good cheer and happy hearts, Fair Haven Grade School invited students and families to join us in Lighting up FHGS with Kindness! We asked for candles to be filled out with a random act of kindness that your child has done and then send the candle back to school. We also asked for candles to be sent in with gratitude notes for teachers and staff. Our FHGS community really delivered! We received many MANY candles. All candles received have been displayed in the hallways at FHGS. Thank you for your help as we strive to strengthen the connection between home and school and to show our students the importance of generous, considerate acts towards one another.
Fair Haven Grade School would like to share our December Newsletter. https://5il.co/13i71

December 16, 2021 Dear Slate Valley Staff and Families, On December 15, 2021, we were informed by the Agency of Education of non-credible (social media-based) school threats that alluded to some potential school violence taking place on December 17, 2021. At this time there are no credible threats in Vermont. These same types of social media threats have taken place in other states across the county. Furthermore, this is not an uncommon pattern that we have seen in other non-credible social media-based threats. The Vermont Intelligence Center and our state’s law enforcement partners are aware of these non-credible threats and will continue to monitor these situations and provide updates to school leadership as needed. As you are aware we take any threat seriously and each incident is evaluated to determine its level of credibility. We have a very close relationship with local and state law enforcement and work with them to assess each situation. As always, please, if you see or hear anything that you are concerned about feel free to reach out. Safety is all of our jobs. Regards, Brooke Olsen-Farrell The full letter can be viewed here: https://5il.co/139sf
This week, Mrs. Cacciatore helped our 7th and 8th graders work with the Ozobots. The Ozobots travel on paths students create and will perform different movements and tasks based on the colored codes they travel over.
As part of this week’s Hour of Code, Grades K through 2nd practiced coding during Library Class. They played a life size version of Robot Turtles where Mrs. Rampone acted out the Robot Turtle, and Ms. Cacciatore played the Turtle Master.
In Library Class 3rd and 4th grade students created Bristle Bots with Mrs. Rampone and Ms. Cacciatore after hearing the story "Facts vs Opinions vs Robots". https://youtu.be/RhJ9Oi8VlBw
