1) The Polish take-out restaurant is open for business. I stopped to get a menu yesterday but they hadn’t arrived from the printer yet. I was treated to a wonderful sample of Kupusta. The will have a website 180Grill.
2)Stamford Elementary School’s principal Micha Hayre is announcing a new program to bring community members and students together for fun and learning.
“This year, I am facilitating a “Life Skills” class once a week to replace MAD (Make A Difference) Monday. Due to the fact that public education is having a more and more difficult time implementing courses like “home economics” or “trade skills” into a K-8 education, I am bringing a class called “Life Skills” to Stamford School! Each Friday, I will facilitate Life Skills between 10am-2:30pm. I will be bringing in guests that have a skill, hobby, talent, or collection that they believe that every child should be introduced to such as sewing, tying a knot, fishing, cooking, gardening, carpentry, and the list goes on! You could bring one day of learning or a session of learning (multiple Fridays). It could be four Fridays in a row or it could be one Friday.
Are you the expert in something and would you be interested in making a difference in the lives of our K-8 students in Stamford, VT? OR do you know someone is the expert- please forward this on.
