National Assistant Principals Week

Below is a sample message from our daily message curriculum, Project Wisdom. It is appropriate as we head into this week before break, when many students are distracted by thoughts of travel and other fun experiences during their time off from school.


"Did you know that the average person can have thousands of thoughts a day? How do we concentrate when our thoughts are running amuck? We've all entertained thoughts that don't make sense, are negative, or even chaotic. Perhaps doubt or discouragement crept in and we got caught in a loop of negative thinking, which served no purpose but to zap our precious energy.


So how's this for a thought? Next time those uninvited, unhelpful thoughts enter your mind; concentrate on stopping them right away. Redirect your thoughts immediately to the task at hand.


Next time your thoughts get away from you, consciously redirect your attention. Be present to whatever life has given you in that moment."


Energy was high this week with the beautiful weather, which provided lots of opportunities for students to take their learning outdoors. I anticipate next week to be more of the same! Please remember that students are welcome to bring camp-style chairs to school for outdoor learning time, and sunscreen would be a great idea as well!


Have a great weekend, and enjoy the sunshine!

Ms. Roth

Report Cards

We experienced technical difficulty when attempting to print report cards today. We expect to send them home with students on Monday, April 12th. Thanks for your patience!

Save the Date!

The graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021 will be held on Saturday, June 5!


Details will be shared at a later date; we expect guidance from the state regarding end of the year celebrations and ceremonies to be released in early April.

8th Grade Murals

8th graders have started working on their murals. They presented to Mrs. Roth last week with a sketch and a proposal about their murals, their locations and reason for subject matter.

Notes from the Office

Substitutes Needed!!

If you enjoy brightening student's days and enhancing their minds, you might want to give subbing a chance. The days are flexible and the job itself is very manageable to do. Subbing would entail taking attendance and following the simple sub plans that the teacher you are subbing for that day would give you. If you are interested in subbing or getting more information, please contact Dottie. Email at dfisher@tvhs.k12.vt.us or call 802-368-2880. Thank you so much for your time; we truly hope you consider giving subbing a chance!


Student Information

Student information including phone numbers and addresses can be changed at any time. If your personal contact info changes, please notify the office as soon as possible. This helps us male sure that we can reach you in case of an emergency, and makes sure that you receive timely communication from the school on a regular basis.

Imagine a community where:

*Every youth feels connected and has a sense of belonging.

*Every youth is heard and feels their voice matters.

*Every youth has access to engaging spaces and activities.

Join us for a presentation about VYP and how we can implement it in our communities on Monday, April 26, 2021 at 5:30pm.

The Vermont Youth Project (VYP) is a statewide initiative sponsored by Vermont Afterschool to support communities with creating an environment that embraces positive youth development. Community members and youth come together to create local plans to address risk and protective factors of youth; support youth voice and engagement; and build partnerships and collaborations across the community. Communities that participate in VYP commit to empowering youth and creating healthy accessible spaces for youth to be themselves, engage with peers, learn new skills, and connect with caring adults.
