superintendent in the woods

This week's School Showcase brings us to the Winter Wonderland of ECO at BTMES! Our friends at the North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier have helped bring ECO (Educating Children Outdoors) to both BTMES and BCEMS for years, and we got to experience a wonderful couple of hours in the woods with a group of BT 6th graders this week on a perfect winter's day.

Superintendent Hennessey

The Barre Unified Union School District (BUUSD) Board interviewed the Superintendent finalist, Chris Hennessey on January 19, 2022.  Following the interview, the Board reviewed all the available data from forums, feedback from administrators, and his experience with the district before deliberating.  An offer was made to Chris Hennessey, and we are pleased to announce that he has accepted the position.  Please join us in congratulating Chris Hennessey as the Superintendent of the BUUSD!

Welcome to the first School Showcase of 2022!  This week, we find ourselves in BCEMS Art Teacher Kate Hawley's kindergarten class.  As we know, the last week and a half has been incredibly challenging for our school community, but I found spending a half-hour with Ms. Hawley's group of six-year-olds the perfect answer to all of my woes!  I think you will too.


Welcome to our final School Showcase of 2021! This week, you'll get to see 2014 SHS grad Alex Jarvis and current Transport Medic for the UVM Critical Care Transport Team return to us to help train CVCC Emergency Services students. The SHS and CVCC staff and students were treated to quite a show, including a training exercise with a UVM/Dartmouth helicopter landing on our athletic fields! Alex was a former student of mine, and all of us who worked with him were mighty proud to see how far he has come!

drama club

This week's School Showcase takes us to the Spaulding High School stage where we got to spend time with the SHS Drama Club.  SHS Social Studies teacher and Drama Club Director, Katie St. Raymond, brought the cast and crew together to meet with us, and it was a highly entertaining visit!  The Drama Club's production of Alice In Wonderland earlier in December was a real treat for those of us who got to see it, and these talented students worked incredibly hard to put on a wonderful show!  A spring performance will be announced soon, and you won't want to miss it.
