"A school climate that recognizes and values the inherent dignity of each individual is everyone's right. Creating such a climate is everyone's responsibility."

Principals Corner

In March, a very exciting and unique learning opportunity began in RNESU. Mr. B’s letter below was posted on Neshobe’s Facebook page and printed in the Reporter.  This event was also featured on WCAX, In case you missed it, you can view it http://www.wcax.com//story/34975516/vt-schools-join-forces-to-create-giant-mural.

“The Art Teachers of the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union (RNESU) would like everyone to know that we have a very special project happening at the Compass Arts and Music Center right now and you (yes, you!) are enthusiastically invited to join us in it. Interested?  Curious?  First mark these dates on your calendar:  Saturday, April 1, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. and Thursday, April 6, from 3:30-7:30 p.m.  During these times everyone in our community is invited to visit Compass and draw.  Draw?  Oh no! What’s that you say?  You can’t draw?  Well, don’t worry.  If you have ever doodled in a notebook or on the back of an envelope while you were talking on the phone, then you can handle this.  The project is designed so that the drawing of all visitors will eventually become connected and interwoven to create one large collaborative piece of art.  The work of individuals will essentially become anonymous; and your drawing, no matter how simple or strange, will be incorporated into a much larger image representing the work of hundreds of children and adults that make up our community.  The project is called th!NK. If you would like to know more details or see pictures to help you understand the project please visit our website at:  https://sites.google.com/rnesu.org/think/home.  You can also do a Google search for “neshobe art” and find a link on the art room home page.  On Thursday, April 13, from

4:00-7:00 p.m., there will be an opening for the community to view and celebrate (but not work on) the finished piece.  Don’t be shy; come be a part of this community project!”

Congratulations and thank you to Sarah-Lynne Carrara, who led the very successful PTO March

On March 17, all of the RNESU Administrators and Brandon First Responders spent the day at the Brandon Fire Station working on a school crisis scenario. The purpose was to establish a collaborative partnership to build upon and train for responding to an emergency.

Have a nice Spring……………………Judi
