Photos from more schools, nice teacher-written article, National Park passes for 4th graders, Web site activity.
The photos keep coming in and we love getting them. Here are pictures taken by TU volunteer Barry Mayer of egg delivery day at the Village School of North Bennington.
Barry also sent these photos from Mount Anthony Union Middle School.
Amanda Pierce, of Barre City Elementary School, sent me these pictures of her class and Shawn Nailor, TIC co-liaison for the Mad Dog Chapter region, who made the egg delivery.
More good publicity
Ted Nathanson, of East Montpelier Middle School, wrote a very nice article for the East Montpelier Signpost newsletter. Here's what it looks like, but that's probably too small for you to read. To access the whole newsletter, click here. Ted's article is on page 6.
Wonderful opportunity for 4th graders and their families!
Chris Alexopoulos told me about this terrific program.
This fabulous program allows all fourth graders and their families to have free access to our National parks for a year. Pretty great, huh!
Here's the link to sign up for your personal pass.
Web site activity.
Our Web site vermonttroutintheclassroom.weebly.com has been getting a fair bit of action. Here's a summary of the last week's activity.
Joe Mark is Lead Facilitator of Vermont's Trout in the Classroom program.
In June 2012, I retired after 40 years in higher education, having spent the last 32 years of my career as dean at Castleton. One of the first things I volunteered to do in retirement was to work with a parent-friend to help the Dorset School, where his kids and my Vermont grandkids attend, start a TIC program. Gradually that commitment grew into my current role, which is both demanding and highly rewarding.
