Appreciations

Congratulations to  Paige Bissaillon ’17, Eli Carini ’17, Eleanor Frost ’17, Lydia Morris ’17 and Alex Olszewski ’19 for fantastic Model UN conference at MIT. These students showed wonderful commitment, and put in considerable effort.  They even  braved a snowstorm while traveling back home.

Congrats to our Varsity Girls for winning recently against Rivendell.  We believe that this is the first TSA girl’s basketball team to ever beat Rivendell.  Go Phoenix!

Game Results

TSA Varsity Girls:

TSA 43, Rivendell 37,
Monday, February 13th. Go TSA! So Proud!

From the Valley News: Jasmin Johnson’s second 3-pointer of the night broke a 37-37 tie in the final minutes, setting the stage for Grace Dorman’s steal and go-ahead basket as Sharon Academy pulled a 43-37 upset of Rivendell Academy in a Central Vermont League girls basketball game on Monday night. In what Phoenix coach Gregg Nalette called “our biggest win, for sure,” Dorman produced her third big game in two weeks as Sharon (4-8) took a bite out of the Raptors’ postseason position hopes. Dorman’s team-leading 16 points was no surprise for Nalette. Mallory Lloyd and Jocelyn Johnson both scored seven points for the Phoenix, which hosts Williamstown on Wednesday. Rivendell entertains Chelsea, also on Wednesday

 

TSA Varsity Boys:

TSA 42, Rivendell 51
Tuesday, February 14th

From the Valley News: Harvey Kelley led Sharon with 14 points and Cordell Benjamin had nine. Rivendell led, 43-40, before closing on an 8-2 run. “They out-executed us,” Sharon coach Blake Fabrikant said. “Their outside shooting stretched the floor and they were able to stack the paint against us. We fought hard; our energy was great.” Sharon (10-7) hosts Mid Vermont Christian on Friday.

TSA 53, Rochester 21
Friday, February 10th. Way to go Sharon!

From the Valley News: Harvey Kelley put a defensive blanket on Troy Walker, the Rockets’ sophomore 1,000-point scorer, keying a solid two-way game for the Phoenix (106). Kelley kept Walker to four points through three quarters and 11 for the evening to slow down the visitors. Kelley also scored a dozen points for Sharon, second only to Sam Knoerlein’s 17. Fisher Kelley had nine points and Cordell Benjamin added eight for the Phoenix. “I’m really pleased with how we played,” Sharon coach Blake Fabrikant said. “The energy and the effort were excellent. I don’t see the silver lining from time to time, but this was an excellent job.” Rivendell plays Sharon a visit in a key Central Vermont League showdown on Tuesday.

 

TSA JV Boys:

TSA 28, Rivendell 59
Tuesday, February 14th.

Hunter Lahaye (‘19) hit 4 3’s to lead the team in scoring with 12 points and Scott Elderd (‘18) finished with 10.

TSA 29, Rochester 35
Friday, February 10th.

A tough TSA team battled back from a 15 point deficit at the end of the first quarter but ran out of time in the loss.  High scorers were Olly Skeet-Browning (‘20) 13 points and Scott Elderd (‘18) 9 points.

High School News

 

A Note From Stephanie Davis About Maternity Leave:

One of the great joys of parenthood has been being able to bring our daughter, Nora, into the TSA community. I feel grateful to be part of a community that is so welcoming to our daughter. And so, we are excited to bring our second baby into the TSA community later this spring in May.

It is interesting to be on the beginning end of parenthood and have conversations with and learn so much from so many of you who are further along on this journey than I am. Perhaps one of the things I hear most often is how quickly it all goes by. It is partly because of this oft repeated sentiment that I have decided to take a leave of absence from TSA for the 17-18 school year.

My husband reminds me how lucky I am to work in a place that is willing to be so flexible and supportive of me in making this decision. It is a decision that has not been easily made and comes after much thought and many conversations. We are thankful, though, to have this opportunity for our family at this point in our lives.

My last day for this school year will be April 28th and I will return for the 18-19 school year.

I will miss all of this.

Stephanie

Governor’s Institutes of Vermont:  GIV is offering 11 Institutes this summer.  GIV summer sessions are one week long, and take place at college and university campuses all over VT.  Applications are due March 15.  The costs of the session should not hold you back from applying, nor should grades.  Talk to Ellen Bagnato if you have any questions.  Also, check out the GIV website: http://www.giv.org/

Come see Richie Play! Our very own Richie Morrill’s Senior Hockey Game for the Hurricanes is February 25th at 1:45.  Come cheer him on!  $2 entry fee.

Would You Like Participate in a Science Expedition to Greenland or Antartica for FREE?  The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) to Greenland and the Joint Antarctic School Expedition (JASE) to Antarctica are two exciting polar science programs currently available to 11th grade students.  JSEP and JASE are supported by the National Science Foundation grant to Dartmouth College.  Travel, lodging and meals are provided at no cost to selected students. JSEP and JASE are targeted at students who have a passion for learning, strong interest in science and openness to other cultures.  And, both programs have proven to be life-changing experiences for selected students in previous years. JSEP is a three-week field experience in Greenland scheduled for summer 2017.  Selected students from the U.S., Denmark and Greenland live and work together while exploring current Arctic research and completing their own inquiry-based projects.  The program includes two weeks of extensive field experiences near Kangerlussuaq and a final week at Summit Station, the U.S. research facility located at the top of the Greenland ice sheet. JASE is a 1-2 week program that takes place in King George Island, Antarctica, scheduled for winter 2018.  Students from the United States join a Chilean high school expedition to Escudero Base on King George Island. The program includes visits to international research stations and field sites in Antarctica as well as the Chilean Antarctic Institute in the Patagonia region of Chile.  JASE participants must be fluent in Spanish. Both programs are open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the 11th grade at the time of application. Students may apply for one or both programs using the same application. For more information, please contact Dr. Lauren Culler at lauren.e.culler@dartmouth.edu or visit http://dickey.dartmouth.edu/environment/programs

 

International Earth Science Olympiad: Every year, over 30 countries compete in Science Olympiads. There are twelve different International Olympiads, including ones in Math, Chemistry, Biology and Physics.  Unlike other Olympiads, the IESO places students on international teams and challenges the teams with real Earth science issues facing the host country.  Last year in Japan, one of the international challenges was how to plan ahead to reduce tsunami damage.  It was exciting for the students to work with their international peers on such a project and then present their work to a group of local politicians and global educators. This program opens lifelong international opportunities of the students who attend. Last year US students took gold, silver and bronze medals and awards. Each year for most of the Olympiads, thousands of students in the United States take the qualifying exam.  Because the Earth Science Olympiad is relatively new, last year only 51 students nationwide took the qualifying exam.  This exam is being offered at TSA, proctored by Kimberly Barnhart. There is a fee of $25 for the exam (this will be waived for students with financial need). Students with a good background in science, and a core understanding of Geology can do well on the qualifying exam and earn a place in the summer training institute to prepare for the International Olympiad Team USA.  This years International Olympiad will be held in Nice, France in August. Tom and Beth Tailer, science educators, are running the summer institute at the University of Vermont from June 24th to July 1.  From this institute, eight students will be selected to represent the USA in France. They want to make this opportunity available and are willing to mentor students and send them a syllabus to help them get ready for the placement exam.  The tuition is needs-based so if the qualifying student can not afford the program we can make funds available for both tuition and travel to France. Please visit the web page at
http://eatailer1.wixsite.com/team-usa-ieso and the 2016 Japanese site at http://ieso2016.jp

Free Money for You! Free Money for TSA! VSAC is holding a FAFSA Challenge for Vermont high schools. Every high school that has 70 percent of its seniors completing a FAFSA will be entered into a drawing for $1,000 for a school-approved senior activity. The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the crucial first step to receiving financial aid, including federal Pell grants, VSAC’s Vermont State Grant, financial aid from the school that the student attends and for student loans. Simply put, no FAFSA, no financial aid. The cost of continuing your education is a big investment. Eligible students in Vermont could receive on average $3,546 in federal grants and another $1,800 in the Vermont state grant. That’s free money that doesn’t need to be paid back. Whatever you’re doing right now, stop. Take the 30 minutes to file the FAFSA and the Vermont Grant application to get all the financial aid that you are eligible for. Questions?

It is always my goal to have my students gain a solid understanding of the math (understand what is being asked, have the ability to solve, be able to interpret results), and then to move on to solving quicker and more efficiently if that is warranted. Tricks and shortcuts are often valuable for exams, but beginning with even a basic understanding of the material will lift a tremendous weight and stress off of the student.”  He has had experience teaching all ages from 10-adult, as well as all levels of ability. For more information, please contact Marc Formichella, cell: 720-352-5240, email: <formichella.marc@gmail.com>
