Principal's Message

Dear Families,
We were treated to an amazing performance of Tempest in a Teapot last week. Thanks go out again to our wonderful parents who volunteered so many hours to create and practice this musical with our children. It’s incredible to see the talent we have in our student population. This experience gave children a chance to shine in a way that is different from their day to day performance in reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. We so appreciate all of you who helped with this event.
This week Champlain’s Family School Partnership Committee has organized our Multi-Cultural Festival. Please come out some time between 5:30-7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 17th.  We have organized this event to celebrate the richness of our diverse school community. There will be tables set up around the gym representing different countries of the world and their cultural artifacts. The Burlington School District Food Service program, thanks to the generosity of Doug Davis, will have some warm soup prepared for all to taste. Not only will you learn about countries from around the world but you will also be entertained with some Irish Step dancing and African drumming! Please come out and enjoy this time together with your family and friends.
This is our last week of school prior to the April vacation. We are all hoping for sun and warmth during the spring vacation to get rejuvenated for the last seven weeks of school. We are assuming we will not get a huge snow storm between now and June so our final student day will be Wednesday, June 11th.

Sincerely, Leslie
