On Friday, May 19, 24 Sound School Rowers departed our school for the annual pilgrimage to Vergennes, VT’s Lake Champlain Maritime Museum for the ‘Spring Wave’ race that is a rite of spring for our northern rowing compatriots. On May 20th, these intrepid rowers competed in the legendary Lake Champlain winds against several local Vermont organizations as well as teams from far away coastal Maine and a very strong team from our closest competitors, New York’s Harbor School. At the end of the day after several round robin races that were 1 and 2 miles each for each skill level, The Sound School Rowers placed in the top 2 places for each category that they raced in. Remembering that the word ‘compete’ means to ‘strive together’, the quote of the day after the final race of the day where crews consist of a mix of rowers from all categories and skill levels, was from a Harbor School student who stated; “It sure is better rowing with The Sound School than against them.” Please congratulate our rowers for another fine demonstration of our program’s success, commitment to hard work and good sportsmanship that continues to be the model for all other programs in the region. And a special thanks from coach Neil Geist, parents, and most of all our rowers, goes out to Bob Lizotte and Paula Daddio for their superior support for our students when called to the task of providing safe passage and professional leadership before, during and after the races.

Note from the security department: Students: District policy prohibits students bringing glass containers to school. Please do not bring them or they may be confiscated.



No student should be in any other building than McNeil during lunch waves. Also, exterior doors to buildings must remain closed at all times…Do Not Prop Doors Open. Security is everyone’s business, so please, adults and students alike, help out by making sure those doors remain closed!



The odd side of South Water Street is now designated a residential parking area, now designated by “Zone 17” signs. Non-residents who park there risk being tagged and towed. Please do not park there. And while we’re at it, please do not park anywhere in the bus loading area designated by brick patio in the curb strip between Thomas and Foote.



Students are not authorized to be in any building other than McNeil and the second floor of Thomas before first bell at 7:55. Teachers please DO NOT let students into buildings in the morning unless you intend to personally supervise them, in which case you should let the administrative team know.

If you are locked out of a building for any reason, please report to the main office so we can call ahead and facilitate your reentry. The McNeil building remains open at all times during school hours. Please do NOT knock on entry doors during class time. This is disruptive to everyone in the building. Also do not rely on calls or texts to fellow students. Your entry must be facilitated by an adult. Again…go to McNeil and get called in. Teachers, please do not send students on errands during class time. On that rare occurrence when you simply MUST do so, you MUST phone ahead to their destination to facilitate their entry.
