BRINGING A LITTLE LUCK TO BRIGHTON -- On St. Patrick's Day, Brighton Elementary School's favorite 84-year-young Leprechaun appeared once more with her green hair, her green duds and a bag of gold coins.

O'Gorman has been very active in the school system, not only as beloved Leprechaun, but as a teacher for 45 years (even teaching in a one-room school house for a while), serving on the Brighton School Board for 12 years and the North Country Union High School Board for 9 years.

Burke Town students studying Vermont history
WALKING TOUR OF VERMONT -- Fourth-grade students at Burke Town School have been studying Vermont: past and present. Recently, they had a hands-on opportunity to explore the geography and history of Vermont. Students used The Giant Traveling Map of Vermont, on loan from the Vermont Geographic Alliance, to locate and "walk" their way around state. This floor map is approximately 18-feet by 24-feet, allowing students to carry out many activities while walking around on the map in their socks. Some activities included an exploration of the marble corridor on the western side of the state, a visit to shire towns, and locating the many places the General Assembly has met from the late 1700s to the present capitol building in Montpelier. The Vermont studies will culminate with a field trip to the statehouse, historical museum and Cabot Creamery in June.
