The 5th/6th-grade students recently participated in the Danville School Science Fair. Teachers Nick Decaro and Chris Rapoza organized the event. Each student prepared their own experiment and presented their findings. Students began with a question or problem and followed the scientific method to find answers and design solutions. Winners included: first place, Connor Barany; second place, Chelsea Carcoba; third place, Torie Findlay; fourth place, Nathaniel Steele; honorable mention, Bradley Smith. Special thanks to high school students Megan Potts and Brady Rainville for volunteering their time and expertise to be guest judges at the science fair!

High school musicians Ryan Clancy, Jennie Moore and Shaunna Royce attended the Northeast Vermont District Music Festival recently. They spent several days at North Country Union High School in Newport performing and participating. By all accounts they played beautifully and represented Danville School to very high standards. Great job!

Danville School was fortunate to host artists in residence Peter Gould and Kailie Larkin April 9-13. Both are accomplished artists and educators. They provided workshops throughout the week for students from all grade levels which culminated in a school wide performance and celebration on Friday. Students from each grade K-12 performed creative and original theatrical work. It was a great opportunity for students to explore the arts, collaborate, and have fun. Special thanks to the Danville PTG for their support of this event.
