Dear PAML Families, 

This week we kicked off our Fall athletic program.  We’re really excited to offer full soccer and cross country teams for 6th-8th graders.  A big thank you to our coaches!  These programs would not be possible without these important folks.  Speaking of coaches, we can always use help supervising and supporting our athletes.  Please get in touch with Gabriella Silva ( if you are interested.  

As we kick off our athletics this week I also wanted to let everyone know about an incredible resource that the Vermont Principals Association has put together.  Vermont Third Space is a website devoted to an intervention framework for creating a safe extra-curricular environment in Vermont.  There are valuable messages for athletes, family members, and other spectators.  Please check out the video here: 

Thank you all so much for coming to our open house last week.  It was so great to see so many new and familiar faces.  If you missed the presentation in the art room about some of the items we are focusing on this year, I’ve included a link here.  2023-8-30-OpenHouse
