Starting on January 23rd, 2017 and running until February 17th, 2017 there will be a change to the Green/White day Calendar as published in the beginning of the school year due to a pilot daily schedule that we will be trying out over the course of four weeks in the Middle/High School. Students will have a combined green and white schedule on Mondays which includes all eight classes with a new time schedule. They will have Green Days on Tuesdays and Thursdays and White Days on Wednesdays and Fridays. The class times have not changed. The reason for the pilot schedule is that it will allow us to test how well a consistent schedule with green/white classes on the same day every week would help with outside service providers as well as students that learn outside the building. Eight blocks on Mondays will allow three class contacts a week. We will be getting feedback on the Pilot Schedule, and evaluating it to look at the benefits and possibility of future implementation. Keep in mind the eight block Monday schedule when making appointments for your child(ren). *Please note the blocks alternate on Mondays.  Download the attached pdf for more information.

We're so proud of our students who earned recognition as part of the Vermont affiliate for the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  This is a prestigious national program that offers exhibition opportunities and scholarships to young artists and writers.  From February 18 through March 5, 2017, Brattleboro Museum and Art Center will exhibit this year’s award-winning work by students from throughout the Green Mountain State. An awards ceremony will take place Sunday, March 5 at 12 p.m. The awards ceremony is free and open to the public.

Rebecca Stead, author of Goodbye Stranger, gave a presentation in the WUMS auditorium for the middle school's culminating activity of the all-school read of her book.  There was an author meet and greet in the library before the assembly where students had the opportunity to ask questions about the book, the author's experience as a writer, character development and literary devices the author used.  For the assembly, Rebecca Stead gave a presentation on the other books she has written including the 2009 Newbery Medal winner, When You Reach Me, how she maps out her stories, how she plunges into her writing and how she got the idea to write Goodbye Stranger. Stead opened the discussion up to questions, gave a lot of great advice to young writers, explored friendships and relationships formed in middle school and the hard choices teenagers are faced with.  Her visit was made possible by a Woodstock Union High School Endowment Grant and a partnership between the Rhoda Teagle Library at WUHSMS and the Richmond Middle School Library in Hanover, NH.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.  Visit http://www.rebeccasteadbooks.com/ to learn more about Rebecca and her work.
