When the leaves hit the ground in the fall so do the students athletes at Woodstock - running over the hills and valleys as members of the cross country teams, drilling the ball in the net as teammates on the girls field hockey teams, roaring up and down the field on the varsity football team, or putting the ball in the net on the soccer teams. Here's an early fall sports photo sampler. Stay tuned for more great sports pics coming soon. Thanks to Micky Corrow! Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
Ninth grade Integrated Environmental Science students continue their participation in a joint research project funded by the National Park Foundation and supported by Dartmouth College, the Schoodic Education and Research Center, and Saint Gaudens and Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Parks. Students will become stewards of the environment by developing testable hypotheses about how mercury moves through the environment with a focus on dragonflies. Students traveled to the "Pogue" within the MBR National Historic Park this week to collect water samples and macroinvertibrates. Click on the photo to view the entire gallery.
We're so lucky to live, learn and work so close to the Appalachian Trail. The trail is part of our nation's national park system and is 2,160 miles in length, extending from western Georgia to northern Maine. Mr. Thomas's health class explored a section of the AT Monday, September 8th and discovered bog bridges created by fellow student Graham Melville as part of his eagle scout project. Bog bridges prevent hikers from having to walk or wade through boggy or swampy sections of trail. They also help preserve sensitive wetland habitat from damage caused by walking directly on the plants and stirring up mud. Click on the photo to view the entire gallery.
Ninth grade students spent the day at Farm & Wilderness camp on Friday, August 29th as part of our annual freshman orientation program. Students participated in goal-setting and team-building activities throughout the day in order to kick off the year and become more familiar with teachers and classmates. We welcome the class of 2018 and wish them a fantastic year! Click on the photo to view the entire gallery.

We were so pleased to have The Mike Bono Group stop by and spend some time with our students. We set up a cozy corner in the Teagle library and Mike Bono (guitar), Jimmie MacBride (drums) and Josh Crumbly (bass) played a short set on their way to the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival in Burlington, Vermont. In this video, the group plays a composition titled "The First Dance". Special thanks to music teacher Jody Henderson.
