FHGS Daily Announcements

Wow, it doesn't seem possible we are starting February! We had great January even with some snow days thrown in. We welcomed Mrs. Winn our new school nurse who is getting to know our students and families. Thank you for your support as she gets to know everyone. 
The winter Fountas and Pinnell reading assessment started in January. We are continuing assessments in February. This assessment is given three times a year. Grades 4 and 8 also took the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). This is a nation-wide measure and historically Vermont scores in the top 5 states. There are no individual student or school results. 
Winter activities are in full swing. Basketball teams are midway through their season. The FHGS BB Tournament is scheduled for the end of February. The Drama Program in underway for another season under the able Directorship of Michele Perry. She and the cast (large turnout for drama) are writing their own play this season combining acting and writing. The Girls on the Run program is also organizing for another season with Dr. Gail Raegan and her volunteers from Castleton University. A sign that spring will be coming!
