Congratulations to Riann Fortin and McKenna Marquis for being selected to the 2020 Vermont girls soccer coaches’ all-league, all state Division I team. Also to Olive Beauschesne and Riann Fortin for being selected to the Capital Division first team and Josie Chitambar and McKenna Marquis for being selected to the Capital Division second team.

Welcome back to a very short week before a much-needed break! As we head into our Thanksgiving holiday, I would just like to let you all know that one of the things I am most thankful for is how well we are coming together as a school community to support one another and to stay open for in-person instruction. You have all done so well demonstrating personal accountability for your own safety and collective responsibility for our overall community’s safety by being leaders in and out of school. Please continue to keep these themes in mind as we head into time with our families this week.
Announcements for today:
North Country’s Hope Happens Here group aims to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and will be giving out Free T-shirts during lunch/pod in the Sr Lounge and the cafeteria to staff and students that are interested. Please stop by and take one.
Also, remember that the North Country Rotary Interact Club will be conducting a bottle drive through the end of November to raise money for a personal care closet in Newport. This closet will include food and toiletries and open to the community. You can bring your bottles to Thompson’s Redemption Center in Derby and Buzzy’s Redemption Center in Newport, or arrange for physically distant pick up on December 5th by emailing email@example.com.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Break.
