    Good afternoon U-32 parents and guardians,

    Happy New Year.  I hope that everyone was able to enjoy as much of the Holiday Break as possible.

    January will be a busy month and I wanted to give the dates of our upcoming events.

    January 4th – 6 pm, the Board of Education will meet to approve the budget for next year.

    January 6th from 5:30 to 7:30pm - The Visual and Performing Arts at U-32 present 'Arts Spectacular' is this Friday! Join us in celebrating all of our artists at U-32 with visual art on display, live performances by instrumental and choral musicians, actors, and dancers. 

    January 11th – 13th Semester 1 Exams 

    January 16th – In-service (No School for Students)

    January 17th – First Day of Semester 2

    January 18th at 6:30pm in the U-32 Auditorium Eric Thompson from Civil Schools will present, CivilSchools: Helping Your Teen Navigate the Digital World: Moving from Hurtful to Healthful 

    This presentation will address:

    • Does managing your teen’s relationship with technology cause friction in your home?
    • Are you concerned for their emotional and social well being within digital spaces?

    It doesn’t have to be this painful…

    Rather than spending an evening discussing the dangers of social media, which are vast, we are going to equip you with the high leverage skills and interventions that are critical to your adolecscent's well being.

    We have arrived in the digital world without a map or compass, thus putting many parents behind the eight ball. As with many of life’s challenges, they produce some of life’s greatest lessons.

    With a good strategy, the digital world can be a perfect place for your child to develop self-regulation and self-awareness.

    We will focus on the pro-social behaviors that will help your family not only successfully handle cyber-bullying, sexting, and other negative elements of the online world but how to design a plan that prepares them to thrive within it.

    Presented By: Eric Thompson, Co-Founder and Director of Leadership Development at CivilSchools.

    Eric is a Silicon Valley based executive coach, socially conscious parent and entrepreneur.  For the past 10 years Eric has served the business and educational community by teaching advanced leadership and influence techniques that build psychologically safe environments. He and his team at CivilSchools have developed an evidenced-based bullying prevention curriculum that has been used across the United States to increase acts of civility. Eric has a passion for teaching people the critical skills necessary to be able to act as UPstanders rather than bystanders. 

    Welcome to the New Year!

Announcements & Upcoming Events

  • --  2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey  --

    U-32 is taking part in the 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. This survey is sponsored by the Vermont Department of Health and Agency of Education. The survey gathers information about health risk behaviors of 6th through 12th grade students. The survey will ask about nutrition, physical activity, injuries, tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use, and sexual behaviors. Schools, communities and state agencies will use the results of the survey to evaluate programs, plan new programs and to secure future funding.

    We are planning to administer the survey on March 13th during Callback

    The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in conjunction with state and local school officials, developed the YRBS. It has been administered in schools nationwide since 1991. The YRBS has the support of many national organizations including the National PTA. 

    The YRBS is anonymous, and survey procedures have been designed to protect your child’s privacy. It is important that all students, regardless of whether they have engaged in health-risk behaviors, are given an opportunity to participate in the survey. Students will not put their names on the survey. Individual survey responses will not be disclosed to any school employee nor will any student's name or survey responses be divulged in a report of the results. We would like all students to take part in the survey; however, the survey is voluntary. No student is required to take the survey. Students may skip any questions they do not wish to answer. In addition, students may stop taking the survey at any point without penalty.

    Please read “About the YRBS” for more facts about the survey.  As a parent, federal law affords you the right to inspect the survey before it is administered and to opt your child out of participating in the survey. More information about the Vermont YRBS and previous reports are available on the VDH website http://healthvermont.gov/stats/surveys .If you have any questions or concerns, please call Lisa LaPlante at 229-0322

    Should you decide to opt your child out of taking the survey please inform us in writing by returning the enclosed form or a letter to us by Feb 24th.
