Around the School

Around the School, In the Classroom

Dear Parents/Guardians, 
Students reflecting in journals

Stowe Rescue EMT Julian Harrison
This week I want to share a class I observed in Mr. Mark May's Health and Physical Education course this morning. As you can see from the attached photographs, students are deeply involved at the moment in learning cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Mr. May not only organized community resources to implement this lesson, but, he also pays close attention to integrating writing into his curriculum. Students are responsible for specific journal entries designed to assist them in drawing meaning and relevance from the demonstration.

Got One Hour? UVM’s Adolescent Health Improvement Project needs 15 students, aged 13 – 18  to spend one hour talking with them about why they do or do not seek recommended well-child exams annually.  Each participant receives $20 for their time. The event is scheduled for February 13 from 3:30 to 4:45 including a 15-minute registration. Parents are encouraged to participate on their own from 5:30 to 7:00 that evening. Parents receive $50. All participants must contact Joyce at or call 1-802-656-9190 before February 13. Our school nurse, Eileen Crawford, RN has arranged for us to host this event in the name of school wellness. The event is sponsored by the University of Vermont College of Medicine.
