~ for sponsoring the creation of this beautiful sculpture ~

Mr. Joe Lo-Furno,


Thank you, also, for sponsoring the performances by the VSO Symphonykids ensemble, "Ah! Capella!"  


  • Welcome:  New PTO Vice-President Whitney Hull. 
  • Robot Rodeo:  Thanks to excellent work by our library/media team, Mr. Faunce and Mrs. Faith, along with encouragement and support from the PTO, Stowe Elementary School's application to host a robot for Vermont's Robot Rodeo has been accepted! During the month of February, we will host a robot named "Sphero."  If you're interested in learning more about this project, visit the blogspot:  Vermont Robot Rodeo

  • Community Meeting:  Friday, January 27, at 8:20 in the gym.  Mrs. LaClair will be our main presenter.  You're always welcome to join us!
  • Geo Bee:  Congratulations to 4th grader Taylor Lewis for his victory in the SES Geo Bee.  Taylor will take a qualifying exam for the state bee.  Well done, Taylor!
  • New Assessments:  Our schools are utilizing a new assessment system for screening and progress monitoring in literacy and math.  Learn more here: Renaissance STAR
  • Girls on the Run:  There will be an informational meeting for all girls in grades 3-5 in Mrs. Stetson's classroom on Thursday, February 9.  Program organizer Rachel Desautels will be here to speak to the girls about this program.
  • Lost and Found:  Please find a few moments to check the lost and found bins in the gym for items of your child's clothing. The bins are full of clothes who miss their families!
  • Morning Drop-Off:  Parents, please do not pass other cars in the loop when dropping students off in the morning, as this creates an unsafe situation. Likewise, please try to have your child collect his/her things and be ready to hop out (preferably school-side of the car) so that the line can move along.
