- Congratulations! All OSSU school budgets were approved by voters at town meetings this year! Appreciation goes out to the board members, principals, teachers, administrators, families, and community members who engaged in this process.
- And congratulations to the GMTCC Forestry Program who received a visit from Governor Phil Scott and Secretary of Agriculture Anson Tebbetts for a tour of the new sugarhouse on Hazen’s campus!
- School lunch is looking good! The beef stew on this tray at Hardwick Elementary is loaded with local products: organic beef from VT99 Meats and locally sourced carrots and potatoes processed at the Vermont Food Venture Center in Hardwick. These local products are being served at the other OSSU schools as well!
- On March 8, three students from Lakeview presented at the annual school meeting in Greensboro.
