Dear Families,

VUES is excited to announce that we will be having a 5th and 6th grade Spelling Team this year. Our goal is to have a team of 6 students that will compete in the district wide Spelling Competition with the chance to move on and compete at the state level.
We will meet on Tuesday’s from 3:30-4:30 in Mrs. Paquette’s room starting September 27 and ending November 15. This will be part of the Fusion program as well, so the Fusion paperwork needs to be filled out. Any student who is interested is encouraged to be part of the team. We need a team of 6 and will choose the top 6 spellers out of the group to compete. We will learn and practice strategies to compete in the VPA sponsored spelling bee as well as, play games and practice, practice, practice. Before the district competition we will hold an in house practice meet which will determine the top 6 spellers that will go on to the next round and compete for our school. Here is the link to the Vermont Principals’ Association webpage. It provides information about the competition and word lists:
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me, Nicole Paquette, Spelling Bee Coach.

Thank you,
Nicole Paquette or (802)877-3761

Hi All,

  • Please check student backpacks for field trip permission slip and school newsletter. 
  • Some students have not brought the White Tee Shirt 100% cotton for best results in Tie-dying.
  • We are also looking for earbuds or headphones for some students. We will be using the chromebooks on a regular basis especially in math and social studies since we have online access to the book. 
  • The school also sent several forms to complete on the first day we will need some of that information on the field trip. Please complete and send them in with your child.
Thank you enjoy the long weekend with your family.
