Welcome to the COSMOS' Team website

We are:

Confident, Open-minded, Sensational, Mindful, Optimistic, Social

“We wish to pursue the truth no matter where it leads, but to find the truth we need imagination and skepticism both—we will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact. The cosmos is full beyond measure of elegant truths of exquisite inter-relationships of the awesome machinery of nature.” - Carl Sagan

We are a seventh and eighth grade interdisciplinary team at Main Street Middle School, Montpelier, Vermont.

This is the site for contact information for the adults on the team, as well as any info/paperwork for parents on upcoming field trips or conferences.

Our Mission:

We work collaboratively to create a positive learning climate, to promote a high level of achievement for all our students, and to celebrate individual and team success. We craft interdisciplinary opportunities that help students make real-world connections to a core academic curriculum that is relevant, challenging, integrative, and exploratory. We believe that all of our students can learn about and contribute to solving the challenges facing our school, local, and global communities.
