Happy December, Lancers! In this issue of The Pride Post, we take a look at a couple of exciting events that took place this past week. On Wednesday, several students took a bus to Castleton University. Toward the end of the week, students spent time in the computer lab for Hour of Code during the day, and many also participated in the Winter Dance Recital in the evening. Keep reading below for more information on those events!

Questions also answered in this issue: What's NHS up to? Is there really a day dedicated to helping our seniors fill out their college applications? What exactly is a gap year and what can you do with it? What is The Pride Post's #LUnice FEAT. of the week?

Read on to find out...


Trip to Castleton

This past Wednesday, Ms. Braggins and Ms. Legere took a great group of students on a trek to Castleton University. Despite some bus trouble, everyone made it there in one piece! They ate a great lunch in the college dining hall, met up with some old friends from Lamoille, took a tour of Castleton's campus, and learned all about what it takes to become a Castleton Spartan.

Did you know: Castleton students create their own mini snow park on campus in the winter, and they make their own skating rink under the largest outdoor pavilion in Vermont!

Hour of Code

On Thursday, Lamoille students from the high school and middle school participated in our hour of code. Students and teachers learned coding together through ozobots and online games. Thank you Hour of Code team for putting this together!

Winter Dance Recital

On Thursday and Friday evening, Lamoille hosted the Winter Dance Recital, put on by Ms. Lafaivre and her talented dance students. There was modern dance, hip hop, jazz, and so much more. At the end of the night, audience members and students alike got up and danced together to the Cotton-Eye'd Joe. If you didn't get a chance to see them this time, keep an eye out for their next performance!


Each week we will feature an act of kindness spotted somewhere in our school, so be #LUnice and get caught in the act! This week's feature is...

Feeling stressed and in need of some encouragement?

Feeling great and want to spread the love?

Stop by and Take What You Need.

Designed by the always caring and creative library staff, the Take What You Need board is available for anyone looking for that little extra something to get them through the day. Stop by right outside the library doors and take a sticky designed for what you need. If you're feeling particularly inventive and generous, offer to create some more stickies for other people!
