A Solon Salute to the MHS Boosters and Hunger Mountain Co-op. On Wednesday, MHS Boosters treated all MHS faculty and staff to the annual Staff Appreciation Breakfast. Hunger Mountain Co-op generously sponsored the breakfast and provided quiches and baked goods made with locally sourced, all natural ingredients. Montpelier Food Service again lent a hand at all three schools ensuring the morning got off to a great start. A Special Community Solon Salute to Hunger Mountain Co-op!

A hearty Solon Salute to Rachel Sucher, Will Rider, and Tale Duggan for participating in Lost Nation Theater's Budbill Outloud--a memorial tribute to poet David Budbill.

A Solon Salute to our Boys' Soccer Team and their coach Mr. Bill Basa. Members of the team worked together with some local Americorp members to plant trees and clean up along the river on Friday in honor of Arbor Day. We salute you!
