Fleming Skating at the Rink
A Huge thank you to all the parents that attended and helped with the skating trip at the high school! The kids had such a great time!
PBIS Soaring Staff Members:
As part of bringing PBIS into our school, each week we are recognizing soaring staff members for their hard work, in the education of our students. This also allows students to get to know staff members, and strengthens school relationships. We welcome Parents in joining us in celebrating their hard work and dedication to our students. !
This week, we recognized Sally Madeira our school Librarian and Elizabeth (Liz) Siracusa one of our 4th Grade teachers. Huge Thank you for all that you two do!
KNITTING CLUB RETURNS FEBRUARY 1st
Knitting Club is an after school opportunity for students and adults to learn a new skills and enjoy each other’s company. We welcome students and adults who want to learn to knit and need adults who know how to knit and can assist beginners. Students are asked to come to the first meeting with knitting needles (size 7 or 8 needles are easy for beginning knitters to handle). We have plenty of yarn for students to choose from for their project. We will meet Thursdays from 3pm to 4pm on February 1st,8th, 15th and 22nd. Please ask your child to sign up at the health office. If you can be a knitting mentor, or would like to join the group to learn to knit, please call Ms. Ready at 857-7276.
Looking for Volunteers!!! Please Join Ms. Aldrich to make this program a possibility!
We are still looking for a couple of more volunteers, many hands equals less work!
You do not have to be a runner to be a coach and you do not need to be able to attend every practice. Any adult who enjoys being with students can be great coach and support the goals of the program. If you are interested, please contact Kathleen Ready in the Fleming Health Office (857-7672). You may go to the Girls on the Run website for information and contact their staff directly. http://gotrvt.org/becoming-a-coach/
Thanks for considering becoming a coach, it’s really fun! We do not want to turn girls away from joining, but we can only take 15 girls with two coaches.
