“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”

Fall is right around the corner….September 23rd to be exact!  As the weather starts to shift to cooler temperatures, so does the pace of the school year.  However, I must say that all staff and students have really settled into their routines with amazing focus and energy.  It was a pleasure seeing many of you at last week’s open house and I personally thank you for being an active part of your child’s educational journey.  Please see the important dates listed below.  As you can see there are many opportunities to join us for programs where we focus on strengthening the school and family bond.

If you are interested in learning more about the Mastery Report changes for the 2023-2024 school year and beyond, please join us in the SMHS auditorium this Wednesday at 6:00 PM.  The shift from a 5 point to 4 point scale will be discussed with myself and LSSU Director of Curriculum Toni Martindell.  Please see our FAQ for more information.

Happy Almost Autumn,

David Greenfield
