Appreciations

Thank you to the 11 TSA Middle School teamed up with CT River Conservancy to participate in the annual Source to Sea Clean Up.  See the middle school section below for a list of the students who participated and more details about this important service project.


Gratitude for the service of Anna’s Advisory:
In the spirit of helping the community and celebrating the harvest season, Anna Riley’s advisory volunteered at the Morrill Homestead’s Apple and Cheese Festival in Strafford on Sunday, September 24th. The group included Rory Livingston (’20), Aili Johnstone (’20), Georgia Quackenbos (’20), Anika Eastman (’21), Olivia Swayze (’21), and Tia Kendall (’21). The festival included a sampling of local cheeses, apples and ice cream, face painting, crafts, and Victorian Age games for kids, apple pressing, live music, animals, and home-made lunch all on the beautiful property of the Justin Morrill Homestead. The students entertained children at the Victorian games table by demonstrating myriad ways to play with wooden sticks, rings, tops and puzzles. They also helped dish various flavors of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream on the 85 degree afternoon. The event had something for everyone, and it was a pleasure to help all of those who worked hard to make it happen.

 

Thank you to Chelsea Pawlek, 7th grader Shannon Hadlock’s stepmother and Ibex have donated a desk for MS Teacher Donald Mabbott our new teacher at the MS. Very much appreciated, Chelsea!

 

Congratulations to Cal Hale ’18 who has been named a commended student in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. Cal placed among the top of 50,000 of the more that 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the PSAT. Great job Cal!

Screening of documentary “13th” – Sunday, October 1st; 3:00pm – 6:00pm; FREE to all. Join Baxter Memorial Library, Seven Stars Arts Center and The Sharon Academy as we continue the conversation started by our community reading of Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson.  There will be a screening of the film “13th,” a documentary released in 2016 that explores how the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which abolished slavery, also came with a loophole that eventually led to the current mass incarceration of black people in America. The film is 1 hour 40 min long and recommended for mature teens and up. It will be followed by a facilitated discussion. There is free childcare provided by TSA students. This event is part of Vermont Reads, a state-wide reading program sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council. Questions? Contact: Kayleigh Rodig at sharonbaxterlibrary@gmail.com or Christa Wurm at cwurm@sharonacademy.net

Junior and Senior students are eligible to take free courses at Dartmouth College. There are many stipulations and requirements to make this happen so it is important to get organized early. A key component is to understand that this is only available in subject areas in which a high school student has exhausted the course offerings at their high school.  For example, if a student wants to take German or a higher level math course that are not offered at TSA.  In addition, Dartmouth students have priority over high school students for all classes.  As a result, high school students will not be confirmed in any class until the first or second class meeting. If a student is interested, they should check out the SCSP website for more information and then contact their advisor and Ellen Bagnato directly. Dartmouth will begin to accept applications from high school students for the winter term on Monday, Oct. 2nd.  The due date for all applications to be passed in for winter, is Friday, Nov. 10th. Students should not wait until November to get started as the application process requires students to make several visits to the Dartmouth campus to meet with professors and to turn in paperwork. For more information, please contact Ellen Bagnato at ebagnato@sharonacademy.net or visit https://student-affairs.dartmouth.edu/departments-.
