A Solon Salute to our U-32 teammates in the hockey games. Here is a message of thanks I received from their principal, Mr. Steven Dellinger-Pate:

"I would like to thank the Montpelier students and fans that supported our combined boys and girls hockey teams this year.  It was great to see U-32 and Montpelier cheer on our athletes.  I know that our rivalry will never be diminished, but it is great to see what we can do together as well. Congratulations to all the Montpelier athletes that participated in the State Championships this week." Together, we salute you!

A Solon Salute to all of our students and faculty that participating in Thursday and Friday's Choral Pops Concert. I think Ms. Monmaney's tweet says it all: 

A Solon Salute to Adam Blair. Adam was thanked by community partner Ann Gilbert, Director of the Central Vermont New Directions Coalition for his tech support in a recent auditorium event that they held at MHS. She writes, "It was great to have the use of the Montpelier HS Auditorium, the equipment, and to have Adam Blair's expertise and time throughout the evening to work out all glitches. Your role as a community partner in this event made it a success."
