Principal's Corner
That Poetry Guy Visits!
February 5, 2016
 
 
Greetings! 
 
Our school is once again collecting donations for the Vermont Children’s Hospital through the Big Change Round-Up campaign being coordinated through radio station W.O.K.O.  Last year, our school raised 1,033.38 for the V.C.H.  This year—as a way to encourage even more donations to this most worthy cause—I have agreed to dye my hair red if we exceed last year’s total and to again have myself taped to the wall of the school if we are able to raise $1,100.00.  That was a lot of fun last year!  Thank you for your generosity.
