Mt. Abe takes new tack in the kitchen

Posted on June 21, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — School officials at Mount Abraham Union High School are bucking the cost-saving trend at some Vermont schools to privatize food services, instead opting for the ambitious plan to build from scratch a homegrown cooperative that could, in time, expand to serve elementary schools in the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union.

VERGENNES — As Lisa Sprague enters a classroom at Vergennes Union Elementary School carrying a bundle of freshly harvested vegetables, she is confronted with a throng of students hoping to help her do whatever is necessary to make the food ready to eat.

Such a scene has become not uncommon for Sprague, the food service manager at VUES. The school recently kicked off the second year of its student garden, which not only produces food for the school lunch program but also gives students hands-on lessons in many subject areas.

VERGENNES — The students of the Vergennes Union High School class of 2010 were not alone as they marched into the standing-room-only school gymnasium last Friday evening. The institution’s 50th graduating class was followed by more than half the members of the class of 1960 — VUHS’s first graduating class.

“There were 60 members in the class of 1960, and it is fitting that they should share the birthday milestone of 50 years this evening,” said Ann Sullivan, a former VUHS English teacher and 1960 alumna who took the floor to wish the students well.

Graduates rule O.V. 'House of Noise'

web_ov2.jpg

BRANDON — There was some pretty deep thinking going on in Brandon this past Saturday morning. Valedictorian Jack Markoski should consider a career in philosophy instead of psychology after his speech to 102 fellow classmates at the Otter Valley Union High School 2010 graduation ceremony.

Markoski evoked Kerouac, Thoreau and J.R.R. Tolkien as he urged his peers not to be complacent, to wander, to explore, to dream, and to use their imaginations.

BRANDON — Observing Sue LaRock, Julie Fox and Jean Childers is like watching a sweet, hilarious, feel-good film.

The three woman, who count each other as friends as well as co-workers, have each decided to retire from their jobs at the Neshobe School in Brandon after a combined 68 1/2 years, and it is definitely with mixed feelings.

“We’re leaving stuff we love everyday,” said Childers earnestly. “To me, it doesn’t get any better than the last 20 years.”

“It is with very, very mixed emotions,” LaRock said, adding with her trademark wit, “But I’m old and tired.”

Moeykens moves on from Cornwall school

CORNWALL — Jennifer Moeykens has seen two generations of several families pass through Cornwall’s elementary school during her 34 years there as a teacher.

She jokes that the reason she’s retiring this month is because she doesn’t want to score enough longevity points to see the third generation roll in. Joking aside, she’ll be leaving the school with fond memories and vows to remain active during the next phase of her life outside the classroom.
