White River Valley High gets its New Colors
Thanks to Jim Hewitt and his crew for doing a knockout job for the Green & Gold. Shortly after summer started they repainted the gyms, the main entrance and a few other projects.
South Royalton – WRVHS Transformation Team
Lori Eggum and her team have done an amazing job managing an array of projects to transform SoRo into WRVHS. Special thanks to custodian Kevin Moran and new custodian Darrell Colsen for all their hard work in the summer heat. Sophomores Carder Stratton and Jake Berry also contributed to the terrific work this summer to get our school ready to re-open next week. Credit to Danaher Floors for our refinished gym floors and contractor Bruce Tibbetts for our new Science Lab and retrofits of other spaces. If you get the chance to personally acknowledge their work please do so. Also do your best to appreciate their efforts by respecting our place.
Kudos to the 25 students who turned out over the summer for our two Student Retreats. The combined six hours of thinking has gone a long way towards shaping the future of our new school…and training its new administrators! Among the exciting decisions and work done has been the plan to have Morning Meetings at the beginning and end of each week. We’ll continue our work reconfiguring our student leadership structure and planning for great new traditions once school starts. We expect this to be the beginning of a positive new school culture characterized by student voice and choice. Thanks to Co-Curricular Director Murphy, Guidance Counselor Hannah Glass-McShinsky, and teacher Tim Fitzgerald for their help facilitating our work.
Enrollment: We’ve had many new students visit the school this summer to enroll. Including this one who stopped by after hours.
Thanks to Hoyt Bingham for helping to keeping our office staffed part-time this summer, while we completed the process of hiring a new office administrator.
