Bobcat Bulletin v.39

June 7, 2024


You know what they say about the weather in Vermont?  If you don't like it... wait a minute!  This certainly rang true for our Field Day on Wednesday when the rain decided to show up.  Regardless of what Mother Nature dished out, Moretown students were happily engaging in a variety of outdoor activities and planned to get wet.  Students participated in a variety of activities including water balloons, tennis, fishing, sponge challenge, slackline and more.  Many thanks to our PE teacher, Kae Zaino, for her work in making this such a positive experiences for our students.


On Monday we will be hosting our Step Up Day event.  Students will be able to travel to their next year's classroom, meet their teacher and be with their 24-25 classmates. All families should have received an email and a letter today with their class placement for next year.  If you did not receive a letter, please let me know and I can resend one.



Please note that our Step Up Day activities for current kindergarten through fifth grade students take place from 9:45-10:15.  Preschool will be hosting a celebration at the Red Hen from 11-1, which should allow siblings of preschool students to attend both.  Rising middle school students will be traveling to Harwood and will spend a few hours there during the morning, eat lunch and return to Moretown for the afternoon.


Our lunch menu for next week is different than what has been sent out.  Our menu will be:


Monday: **New Pizza Choices** BBQ Chicken Pizza or veggie pizza, steamed broccoli, caesar salad, fruit and milk.

Tuesday: Spaghetti with marinara or meat sauce. Garlic bread,veggies. fruit and milk

Wednesday: Breakfast for lunch fruit and milk

Thursday: Tacos beef or bean, veggies, fruit and milk

Friday: Turkey or sunbutter Bagged lunches early release.


Our last day of school this year will be on Friday, June 14th.  We will dismiss bus riders at 11:20 and pick up students at 11:30. NOW will not be hosting after school care so please make accommodations.


It really has been a tremendous year of learning and growth and I feel so honored to spend time with your students and this staff each day.  Let's make next week the best one yet!


I look forward to welcoming our students back on Monday morning.


Ms. Kate




PTO Update


We can't believe there are only two more weeks of the school year! It's amazing to see how much the kids have grown over the last several months. As we wind down the year, the PTO has just a few updates and announcements:

  • End of year appreciation lunch for teachers and staff (Friday, June 14): Every year, the PTO and the parent-family community put together an appreciation luncheon on the last day of school to recognize the hard work and tireless dedication of MES teachers and staff. Please consider contributing a lunch item - you can sign-up here
  • Sign-up as a volunteer for next year. There's always a need for volunteers, not just for PTO activities but for school activities as well. Some volunteer roles - like for winter sports or field trip chaperones - require a background check and fingerprinting, and those security requirements can take some time to process. Let us know sooner rather than later if you're interested in volunteering next school year. We can help get the process started early, so you've completed all the necessary steps by September. (Volunteers are welcome to begin the process at any time during the year. This will just give you a head start.) If you would like to be a volunteer, send us an email at [email protected]
  • The next PTO Meeting will be on Monday, June 17th at 6:00pm. This will be the final PTO meeting of the school year. It will be held in-person, and right now the location is TBD. But if you're interested in attending the next PTO meeting, please mark your calendars and send us an email at [email protected] to ensure you receive all the meeting details.
  • Summer PTO work - While we will be enjoying some time off this summer, the PTO will also be working on planning activities for the end of summer and fall seasons. If you'd like to join our email list, so you get the latest information, let us know at [email protected]. You can also follow us on social media on Facebook and Instagram.

Community Offerings


Join Brian Mohr (Ember Hill Farm) at Living Tree Alliance’s (LTA) community orchard to learn about planting and caring for fruit trees and berry bushes. Brian will model a few techniques, and then we will plant fruit trees and shrubs in the orchard.  LTA educator Melanie Grubman will also lead families in some activities, and kids will get a chance to explore the adventure playground and visit the animals. LTA’s own greens and eggs will be for sale, and each participant will receive a gift certificate for trees and shrubs at Ember Hill Farm.  All donations go towards LTA's school to farm field trips with HUUSD.
