2017-18: Week 8

A Solon Salute to all of the MHS learning community for a very successful 9th annual Fall Harvest Celebration.  
  • This unique day was made possible by the leadership of the Fall Harvest Celebration Committee (led by Mr. Sabo), and by too many others to name. The day was an outstanding example of community collaboration, student responsibility, and teamwork. As a school, we planted over 1300 trees in one morning. The shared meal was fantastic and the performances raise the bar each year. Special thanks to our community partners in planting the trees to help create a riparian buffer on the Dog River--MadDog Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and the Friends of the Winooski River. Thanks also to the MHS Boosters, Food, Farm, and Society Students, Montpelier Food Service, Student Council, Center for Sustainable Systems, Clark Amadon, Michele Braun, George Gross, Nate Rogers, Mimi Kulp, Joseph Kiefer, Tyler Strange, Danny Sagan, Vermont Sound & Light, and the Swingin' Over 60 Jazz Band.
