BioBlitz is an annual event at Marsh Billings Rockefeller national Historic Park that engages students in exploring biodiversity, technology associated with field-based science, as well as mentoring leadership between older and younger students.  This year WUHS 9th graders joined forces with 2nd graders from around WCSU to discover and catalog flora and fauna within Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historic Park.  Some of the breakout groups included were forest flora, mushrooms & mycology, stream-aquatic macro invertebrates, salamander & herps.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.

This is a Prezi developed by members of the First year team at Woodstock Union High School.  It provides a historical context for the widely changing educational landscape in the entire state of Vermont (Act 77 and EQS) as well as four main categories of learner voice (PLPs), learner choice (Flexible Pathways), learner assessment (Proficiency-based Learning) and learner supports (MTSS) at Woodstock Union High School.  There's alot of information to digest here.  Don't be afraid to pause, rewind, view multiple times, or just reach out, contact us and ask some questions.  We welcome you to the conversation!  Let's keep talking and working to create and support this wonderful learning community for our students!

Personalized Proficiency Paradigm @ WUHSMS

This past winter break our Interact students traveled to southwestern Nicaragua to participate in several community service projects.   Projects included working on an elementary school and working on an artificial reef.  For the school, students, chaperones and locals built a water tower, installed sinks in the classrooms, painted inside and out and purchased the supplies to put plumbing into the outhouses.  For our 2018 trip, we are working on installing internet capabilities into elementary schools.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.

 You can sense that spring is in the air when we start tying our flies for fly fishing.  Two volunteers from Trout Unlimited visited our high school health and physical education classes this week to demonstrate how flies are tied.  TU brought several fly tying tool kits and lead our students through tying tips, tricks, and tutorials.  We can't wait for the snow to melt a little more for us to go outdoors for a fly casting session along the beautiful banks of the Ottauqueeche river.  Kudos to Mr. Thomas for inviting TU to visit us.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.

We're welconing spring with beautiful student artwork throughout the building.  This just gets us excited about our annual Spring Art Show that is fast approaching in May.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery of amazing work. 

Curtis Lessard Earns Vermont 2 + 2 AwardsWUHS senior Curtis Lessard has earned the covetted 2+2 Scholarship.  Curtis was one of five Vermont students to receive the award.

Vermont Technical College and the University of Vermont announced the 2016 Farm and Agricultural Resource Management Stewards (FARMS) Two-Plus-Two scholars during the Green Mountain Dairy Farmers annual Statehouse reception last week.

The 2017 Two-Plus-Two scholars were chosen for their academic potential, their interest in a bachelor’s degree in dairy management, and their commitment to the agriculture industry.  The students were honored at the Statehouse event by Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Diane Bothfeld, House Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Partridge, Dean of UVM’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Tom Vogelmann, and VT Technical College President Dan Smith.  

The FARMS Two-Plus-Two scholarship is funded by the State for Vermont for students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in dairy and agricultural resource management through the unique VT Tech-UVM partnership.  The program funds half tuitions for two years of study at Vermont Technical College and full tuition for two subsequent years at the University of Vermont.  The program includes a semester at Miner Agricultural Research Institute in Chazy, New York.

Over 70 Two-Plus-Two scholars have graduated in the past 16 years and are now active in agribusiness industries and on farms across Vermont.  

Congratulations to Curtis for all your hardwork!
