Our visit from the Commissioner of Education

This week Academy School was honored to welcome the Vermont Commissioner of Education, Armando Vilaseca.  As part of his visit, Mr. Vilaseca met with students, teachers and parents to talk about the wonderful progress the school has made over the past several years. As part of his visit, Commissioner Vilaseca came to our classroom with Mr. Stahley, WSESU superintendent, Mr. Paciulli and Ms. O'Neill to watch part of a FUNdations lesson on the SMARTboard and to talk with the us.  Our class wrote a book for him titled "Academy School is Special" in which each child dictated the words to me and then illustrated that page.  He read the book to them and spoke to each child about their page.  The Commissioner told us that he was going to bring this book back to Montpelier to put in his office so that everyone that visits him will be able to read about how special Academy School is.
