BCEMS 8th Grade Step Up Ceremony

We are now in the final stretch of your child’s time with us at Barre City Elementary and Middle School, and it’s fair to say that none of us ever dreamed that the last few months would look like this! Of the many things that I’ve been proud of during this spring of so many uncertainties, nothing has been more impressive than your children’s teachers’ desire to make our 8th Grade Step Up Celebration as special as possible. For more details on the ceremony, please click the photo above.

BCEMS Lead Testing

The State of Vermont passed a new law in 2019 that requires all schools and child care providers to test their drinking water for lead. Barre City Elementary and Middle School participated in pilot testing in Spring 2018.  Based on those results, we received a waiver on new testing and remediated based on results from 2018.

Budget Survey Results

A huge thank you to everyone that participated and gave feedback in our first budget survey. We appreciate all of the comments and responses and will use this information as we develop our budget for next year. We continue to work to improve how we communicate and engage with our community, so please let us know if you have any questions or need more information. We look forward to hearing from you again soon!
