Reminder Announcements:


TikTok Videos

Mr. Morrison is receiving information from parents that students are creating videos on campus and during the learning day. Taking videos of other students could be a technology user agreement and/or privacy violation. This could result in your phone being confiscated and a parent meeting. Please remember you should not be on your phone during the learning day. The exception is the last five minutes of the day. A phone is available in the office if you need to make a call. A parent announcement is being shared about TikTok too.

VT Statewide Math Fair:

We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2020 Statewide Math Fair, to be held at the University of Vermont on April 4, 2020. After consulting our 2020 Math Fair Flyer, encourage your K-12 students to participate by registering at the link below:

2020 Statewide Math Fair Registration Form

Students may submit a project individually (1-2 students) or as a class (3+ students), however, be advised that only 1-2 students can present the project on the day of the fair. We also highly encourage teams of students to come dressed to impress in their best mathematical outfits. Last year, we had multiple schools come in math team t-shirts and attire and this year plan to award the best dressed school/team/project! Otherwise, the math fair event schedule, scoring, and resources will be much of the same as in past years. All of this information and much more can be found on our event webpage
