In Ms. Sanborn's French Class, students replicated stained glass windows as a summative project for their Middle Ages unit. What a fun way to understand the process and purpose of this art form.

During the months of November and December, the 7th grade students at FHUMHS focused on the value of gratitude. They learned about the positive power of being grateful and sharing that gratitude with others. As a culminating activity, the 7th grade students created children’s books with morals centered around the importance and power of practicing gratitude. On December 21st, the 7th grade students walked to Fair Haven Grade School and spent time with all primary classes, grades Kindergarten through third. The middle school students read their books to the younger students, along with doing a craft highlighting gratitude. Each book created was gifted to one of the primary classrooms to become a part of their personal class library. Great job 7th graders, you were all wonderful role models and mentors for our primary students. Click the link to see a slideshow of photos from this event. https://youtu.be/W7K2z-4LKf0

This week’s focus is on art. The three district art teachers have been exposing our students to various materials and techniques. At FHGS and Orwell, Ms. Ray-Mullikan has her students working on elements of line and how it can be used in designing various patterns. They have also experimented with using medium charcoal to draw a simple mountain landscape. Her younger grades are working on their observational drawing skills focusing on farm animals. So far they have mastered the nubian goat and highland cow. At CES and Benson, Mrs. Parrott’s students have been focusing on painting layered abstract art. First they applied their understanding of the color wheel and created some new colors for the project. Next, they worked week to week painting each layer with shapes, lines, and color in mind. They will finish this big project by using their abstract art to make an explosion style origami book. At the Middle and High School, Ms. Partesi has various projects unfolding. Students are using grids to draw a realistic image, taking sections one square at a time. Another class is exploring color theory and depth by making a 3D window box painting. Last week, FHUMHS students also enjoyed a field trip to the Carving Studio in West Rutland, where they were able to experience sculpting from marble.

Dear Slate Valley Families, With the recent increase in illness we are experiencing staff shortages, this is especially true with bussing. We are doing our very best to continue normal operations but please note that we may have to cancel bus routes from time to time. This issue is not just confined to Slate Valley. While schools are not required by law to provide regular school to home transportation it is something that we in Slate Valley are committed to doing. If a driver is out sick, there are no substitutes at this time, so we may need to cancel runs altogether due to lack of staffing. If your child can’t make it to school, the absence will not count against them and in some cases we may be able to combine runs or find other options. Principals will be notifying families when runs need to be canceled and/or alternative arrangements need to be made. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to work through this together. I know the bus company is trying hard to hire additional drivers and come-up with creative solutions. Please feel free to reach out if you have challenges getting your children to school in the absence of a bus. We will do our very best to work with you so your children get safely to school. All the best, Brooke Olsen-Farrell
