The 3rd Annual PLP Expo is fast approaching. The PLP Expo is a capstone event for Stowe Middle School students to share and present their learnings through a passion project. All students are expected to present or be available to participate in a display for a gallery walk.
Based on feedback from last year’s PLP Expo, we have decided to split the event into two nights. Our hope is that this will better accommodate the large turn out.
For 6th & 7th graders, the event will be on April 25 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
For 8th graders, the event will be on May 7 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
Yearbooks are now on sale! This year you can purchase them online for $15. Click here to make your purchase, or go to http://www.schoolannual.com, and click “Buy Student’s Yearbook” to search for Stowe Middle School. The order deadline is May 10th!
Are you looking for opportunities to visit college campuses? On May 23rd, the School Counseling Department is hosting a field trip to meet with admissions representatives and to tour the University of Vermont and Champlain College. This is a great opportunity to experience visiting both a big and small school to see what style of campus might be the right fit for you.
Details: On May 23rd, students will depart from school at 8:15am and return to school at 2:00pm. This trip is open to students in grades 8-11 and there are a limited number of spaces available. 8th grade students should sign up with Ms. Nicole. High school students should sign up with Tarah.
** IMPORTANT: Students will need to bring a bag lunch due to the limited dining hall options at both schools. Unfortunately, we will not be able to leave the group to seek out lunch food if you forget to bring your own lunch.**
Permission slips are due back by May 17, 2019 to either the SMS or SHS office.
