In early May, the Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History invited people to share their personal stories, pictures, and video clips of how they are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Students from Brandon answered the call. Neshobe Elementary School art teacher John Brodowski reached out to the Sheldon and provide some background and some student work. What follows is some of the students' work. During the spring of 2020 students at Neshobe Elementary School in Brandon participated in distance learning, including the students involved in art classes.

Editor’s note: This is part of a series of stories and photos by Neshobe Elementary School students in reaction to their spring spent distance learning. Braeden James Waldie — 6th grade I am in sixth grade and would normally be caught up in field trips, parades, and graduation right now. I had looked forward to traveling to Montreal (going to another country for the first time) and raised money to make the trip. I am sad not to be able to go. When school first closed because of COVID-19 I felt like I was on vacation. Then I missed my friends and began to feel isolated. My mom suggested I...

Odin Waldie (Braeden’s little brother) I am 7 years old and I have gone to Leicester School for three years. Every Memorial Day our whole school walks down the road to the cemetery. We each carry a flag to wave on the way and most of us bring lilacs to leave on the graves there. We always sing songs and read poems or things we have written. The fourth-graders place a wreath to honor the veterans who have died. Then a bugle plays and we...

Editor’s note: This is part of a series of stories and photos by Neshobe Elementary School students in reaction to their spring spent distance learning. Silas Waldie (Braeden’s other little brother) I just turned 6 and finished kindergarten at home because of the bad virus. Online classes were scary. Everybody’s pictures were on the screen looking at me. Mostly I stood across the room looking out the window and listened to my friends talking. After a few times I answered my teacher’s questions with the camera off, so no one could see me. At school I liked sitting on the rug. I could talk to...
