Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
The end of the year is fast approaching and there are a number of upcoming events for you to keep in mind. The official Last Day of the school year for students, will be Wednesday, June 19. The last day is a half-day of schools with dismissal and busses at 12-Noon. The Eighth-Grade Commencement ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 19. High School Graduation is scheduled for Saturday, June 22 at Shapiro Fieldhouse at 11:00 am.
The Eighth-Grade Statehouse Trip is taking place on Thursday, May 30. This is a culmination of their We the People curriculum and lets the students present before a panel of local politicians. Seniors will be partaking in the Senior Breakfast and Senior Speeches in the morning of May 31. That same day is the last day of regular classes and is celebrated with the Annual High School Awards Ceremony, which is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm. Final Exams/Proficiency Recovery are scheduled from Monday, June 3 – Wednesday June 5.
The final two weeks of the school year will be filled with Year End Studies. The YES Plan, as it has come to be known, offers a variety of learning experiences for all of the students at NMHS. These days are still full days of school with some changes to schedules. All students have signed up for two YES Plan courses, an A.M. Course and a P.M. Course. These courses are for larger blocks of time, with Credit Restoration and Proficiency Recovery options for both high school and middle school students and a variety of enrichment activities for middle school students at the beginning and end of the days. High school students who have been fully successful in all of their content courses will not have to be present for Credit Restoration or Proficiency Recovery. Students that need to arrive by bus will report to the cafeteria, library or gymnasium. All middle school students must be present for the entire school day. The middle of the day will have all students rotating between a series of Career and Wellness presentations and activities, including a Step Up to next years schedule. A listing of course offerings for YES Plan can be found on the school’s website at this location: https://www.wssu.org/domain/208.
The annual Talent Show and Spring Fling will take place on Tuesday, June 18. The high school students will be having their Spring Fling at Memorial Park where they will be taking on the faculty in a Softball/Kickball game. The middle school students will be at Garvey Field on that day for field games. Both of these activities are a chance for the students of the school to come together as a community and build a better climate.
Thank you to the entire Northfield Middle & High School community for making this a great place to come to school and to build the future for our children. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us here at the school (802) 485-4500.

Attendance during Exam/Recovery Time:
*During the identified class periods, the "Exam" blocks, students will be given the opportunity to recover "proficiency" in two of the Performance Indicators that their teacher, has identified as those that proved most "unattainable" by your child. The "make-up" times (the afternoons of Monday and Wednesday) are times when students can make up PI's beyond those offered during the "Exam" period. Students should make plans with teachers for the make-up times. If a student has met all PI's for a class, they do not have to attend the "Exam" block for that class. They could either stay home or utilize the Library for quiet study, the cafeteria for group study, or meet with another teacher for PI recovery in their classrooms. Parents of students who have attained all PI's for a class, will be notified via email from their student’s teacher.
