Please Read - Last Post for this News and Announcements Blog

Lamoille South Supervisory Union, Elmore Morristown Unified Union School District and Stowe School District are deploying new websites. As part of that process, we will be using a new system for posting News and Announcements. This is the last post that will be made to this blog. Below is a link to the page on our new website where you can signup for the new News and Announcements. You will immediately notice one of the improvements in the new sites is that you can sign up for many blogs at once. If you have a child in one of our schools, you should have received an email from your school principal with a link to signup for the News and Announcements. The link in this post and the link in that email serve the same purpose. There is no need to do both.

If you signed up to receive emails from this soon-to-be retired site, you will need to sign up at the new site. Our apologies for the inconvenience but we are sure you will find the new system better in many ways.

If you no longer wish to receive email alerts from any of our News and Announcements, you do not need to take any action.

This blog will remain accessible for those that use it as a reference but we will no longer add any new content.

More information on the new sites and how to give feedback will be forthcoming.

If you have any questions or need technical support, please send an email to to open a support ticket.

Two major facilities projects have been identified for consideration within the Elmore-Morristown Unified Union: a Morristown Elementary School project and a Peoples Academy/Peoples Academy Middle Level project.  To narrow the options for consideration by voters, the Capital Project Committee is seeking input from the community.  A short, two question survey on your preferences for each of the options is available and can be completed at any school or either Town Clerk’s office.  The survey, as well as additional information including comprehensive videos, is also available online at the following location: 

The Committee would like to hear from you by September 22, 2017.

The Road to Proficiency leads to Graduation

Seniors enjoying a huge round of applause as they march through the ML hallways. 

For our hard working graduating seniors, the celebrating has already begun at Peoples Academy. On Thursday 6/8, the senior class was honored by Peoples Academy Middle School students and staff. Check out this video link to get a feel for the fun and thoughtful event. While on the topic of enjoyable events, we would like to invite to our annual Last Chapel & school ending celebration on Thursday, 6/15. The event starts at 8:15 and will take place in our Auditorium. You are also most welcome to attend our 169th Commencement Ceremony on Thursday evening; starting at 7:00 pm at the bandshell. We look forward to seeing you at these important events for our seniors and school community.

ML students anxiously awaiting the arrival of seniors
While we have your attention, we'd like to forecast a bit into the next school year. As we continue down the Road to Proficiency there are two programs that will aid in our travels next year. Both programs are lead by Up for Learning and will involve powerful youth and adult partnerships. These programs will help students and our community deepen our understanding of how the brain works and why school is changing. The programs are called M3: Mindest, Metacognition, and Motivation and CSR: Communicating School Redesign. During this work, 42 students will be trained as youth facilitators. We are excited to work with Up for Learning on these initiatives and look forward to engaging the public this fall on our progress and proficiency based learning systems.
