“The mission of Stowe High School is to provide a welcoming and academically rigorous environment, where all students are encouraged to be Creative, Caring and Collaborative learners”
Reminder- Open House Tonight!!!
Save the date: Tuesday September 12th from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.
This year’s Open House will take place with a more free flowing format. SHS families are invited to campus and your students will walk you through their schedules to meet all of our amazing teachers! Specific class times will not be assigned, so that families can visit with teachers and see all of the changes we have made at their leisure. This event will take place at the same time as SMS and will allow families with children in both schools the time to see it all. Hope to see you there!!
As a long time educator and parent, I know the importance of school attendance and its impact on student learning and success. Over the past several months, myself and a team of teachers have taken a long look at how we can support students and families when it comes to student attendance and engagement. Here is the document that outlines the SHS attendance expectations. We are always working to strengthen how we connect and communicate with families and hope these updated expectations bring clarity to how we do this.
If you are interested in joining this year’s Parent Advisory Committee, please contact Mr. Greenfield at email@example.com. This is an opportunity to be part of an integral group, which discusses our ongoing process to make Stowe High School the best it can be. It is my hope to have a diverse and varied membership that will make a positive impact on our school. If you would like to discuss your involvement in person, feel free to reach out to my administrative assistant Robin to schedule an appointment. She can be reached at (802) 253-7229.

I want to thank everyone for their patience this last week. The heat index put a damper on the start of Middle School Sports. Just to clarify, if the heat index is about 86.1 degrees, all sports must be canceled or delayed until the temperatures drop. Here is the VPA Policy regarding the heat index. If you have an athlete participating this fall and have not received an invite for SportsYou, our communication platform. Please email me at Timothy.email@example.com.

College Application Case Study with Middlebury College

The event will highlight the intricacies of the process and the importance of assembling an application. Students and families will gain insight and understanding of the application process. This event is required for 12th graders and families are welcome to join and listen in. A sign up form will be sent to families in September.
