 PRINCIPAL’S REPORT: As we look forward to the new month, there are many exciting things happening: The celebration of Dr. Suess’ birthday (3/2), Town Meeting (3/2), National School Breakfast Week (week of 3/2 with special breakfast items each day), Voting Day (3/3), return to Daylight Savings Time (3/8), Parent Conferences (3/12 and 3/19), and the arrival of spring (3/20).

If you did not receive a Neshobe Budget Information brochure in the mail, you may pick one up in the school office. It explains the reductions and increases in the proposed budget. It also provides comparisons for you:

• The Neshobe’s proposed spending per equalized pupil is down $52 from last year.

• Vermont’s average proposed spending per pupil is $1,897 MORE than Neshobe.

• RNESU district average is $13,863 or $1,413 MORE than Neshobe.

If you are unable to attend Town Meeting and have questions, please call a school board member or me.

As parents of children in the school, you are most directly impacted by the results of the vote. We have worked to ensure a high quality program while controlling costs to taxpayers. We firmly believe that a strong school system benefits the entire community.

Voting begins at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 3, in the school gym and ends at 7:00 p.m. This provides our students an opportunity to see democracy in action. Many parents bring their children with them to vote.

Parent Conferences are scheduled for March 12 and 19. If you are unable to attend on either of these days, please contact your child’s teacher; and your conference will be rescheduled. Regular communication between home and school is essential to your child’s success. Conferences provide the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and plan for the remainder of the year. We look forward to seeing you at these conferences.

Supplemental support services are available to any student. Many students receive these services through our after-school program, S.O.AR., or through S.O.A.R. tutoring. You may access these services by contacting the school. There is bus transportation home, if needed. If you have questions, please contact me.

Wishing you a happy new month!
