VCS Art Teacher, Susan Briggs, was commissioned and donated her time to paint a Viking Mascot on the wall of our gymnasium. It is a gift from the 8th grade class. What a beautiful addition to our school!
The seventh graders went to college today! The Colby College neurology department hosted us to educate us on Brain Awareness. The topics discussed today were brain anatomy, brain development, concussions, and meditation. Along with neurology education, the college also invited us to spend time in their Museum of Art and gave us a guided tour of the campus - allowing us a peek into life as a college student. It was an enlightening day where we learned more about our brains, our future and ate some fantastic food!
