Principals Corner

PRINCIPAL’S CORNER:  We have had a wonderful start to the new school year!  We started the year with a school-wide assembly celebrating the return of our students and staff.  Ms. Fjeld shared a slideshow reviewing learning opportunities from last year, and we are looking forward to the new opportunities this year will bring.  We recognized the work of our custodial staff over the summer and how beautiful our buildings look inside and out.

Updates on changes:

  • The fifth and sixth grades have moved to a Middle Level model this year.  Students in grades 5 through 8 are now considered part of middle level learning in Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union.  RNESU made this change based on current brain-research that shows that adolescents, ages 11-14, have different learning styles than elementary and high school age students.  We are working hard to meet the needs of middle level learners by creating a common philosophy between schools with grades five and six and grades seven and eight at Otter Valley.  There will be more information coming home with these students.

·       The driveway around the brick building has been paved with a new back entrance pad.

·       The lower part of the main building worn siding has been replaced with new skirting.

·      The main building’s roof is now totally replaced.

·       New glass backboards were purchased in collaboration with the Brandon Rec Department and the funds we received from the Redducs Foundation.  They were installed by Rob Naylor of Naylor and Breen and his crew without cost.

·       Our gym was repainted by three Youth Work groups who were in Brandon this summer.

The molding was also replaced.

·       We were able to replace the kitchen’s dishwasher with budget money and additional funds from two grants.

·       Our new chicks arrived this week. Thank you to Brandon Blue Seal for their donation of shaving and feed.
