Vergennes Union High School
Spotlight on Student Voice
On Wednesday, we took time to be with each other in circles! We listened, we learned, and we grew together. At our Vergennes Full Send meeting we had about 30 students come together and share their thoughts on how to build a stronger community. This student leadership group will be meeting every Friday with some teachers and administrators to collectively think about how to make change for the better.
Please encourage your students to join us, we have so many new adventures to dive into!
Cheers to a better world!
