Dig In with NES! * NEW*
Starting the week of May 20th, NES students and staff will
be planting and maintaining vegetable gardens on land donated for use by Kevin
and Melanie Lawrence. Within walking distance of the school, the garden space
offers a wonderful chance for the school to build on projects already in place
(Mrs. Taylor's raised beds and potatoes, Mr. Goodell's composting, Mrs. Ulrich's raised bed) as well as create new
opportunities for students to connect with the land, grow healthy food, and
learn by doing…which is how many of us learn best!
During the summer months, the children in the Tenney Library
Summer Reading Program, Dig In to Reading, will maintain the gardens.
Donations of gardening supplies as well as seeds and sets
are needed. Please bring to the school if you have any extras around!
Shovels Rakes Trowels Hoes
Wooden stakes Hoses Kid-sized gloves
Onion sets Seed potatoes
Pumpkins Squash Kale Lettuce
Beans (pole or bush)
4 or 6 packs of started plants:
Thank you so much!

Newbury Elementary School is a community of motivated learners dedicated to the development and success of the whole child by promoting a positive climate, staff collaboration, family support, and high standards.
Newbury Elementary School is located on the Newbury Village Common in the lovely Cohase region of Vermont along the Connecticut River. Our talented staff is dedicated to a humanistic approach to teaching and learning. We view ourselves as a community of learners and our teachers see themselves as active participants in the learning process. Students learn "how to learn" and are expected to be fully engaged in the process of inquiry and responsible class discussion. Our goal is to enable students to become more active and responsible for their own learning processes. Newbury students have many opportunities to learn from their local community as well. We have many local farms and organizations that invite our students to visit and explore the world outside of school. To prepare our students for the challenges of adolescence, social thinking and personal development is also part of our school's academic focus.
