The Board moved to raise the price of a school lunch from $1.15 to $1.25.This will put Pownal
in line with the rest of Vermont's schools and ensure that the costs of buying and preparing the meals are covered.At $1.15, the price of lunch at Pownal Elementary School
is the lowest in Vermont (the average is $2.09).The Board raised the price to $1.25 per student, the price of lunch in most Bennington County schools.
...The principal of Pownal Elementary School Joan Paustian presented comments to the Board.
The classes are balanced – meaning, all students, including those requiring special attention, have been accounted for and placed for next year.When teachers return from summer vacation on Aug. 27, the classes will be rebalanced so that students who have been dropped or added are figured in.
The school's "Move-Up Day" was a success.On this day, children "moved up" to their class and teacher for the 2002-2003 school year.This gives them a chance to preview the curriculum and learn which supplies they'll need, Paustian
The first year of Pownal Elementary School
offering kindergarten full time was a success: the children did very well, with some reading and writing at end of year, said Paustian
