We also hope that many of you saw the Burlington Free Press article about the Winton Team and our Environmental Club's involvement in the IdleFreeVT citizen science campaign this fall. If you missed here - here is the link to the story:

With their initial data collected, the students will now be organizing an informational campaign including some newsletter articles and other info directed to SCS parents and others that might be idling in our parking lots and front circle. There goal is that come springtime, when they conduct a follow-up survey, they will see genuine evidence that their work has made a difference for our environment. Science for a purpose - love this kind of work!
It has been a great start to the school year, and it is our hope as we hit the "pause" button next week that you and your family enjoy a wonderful time of restful Thanksgiving. We look forward to reopening the school doors again on Monday November 30 - hard to believe that December and then 2016 is just around the corner! Think snow :-)
