From the Principals
What a fun, fast month we have had for January. Our students have been working hard and also having a lot of fun. Our I Love to Read month is on its way. Take a look at the update in our weekly update.
This coming month, we have several fun after school events that are sponsored by our PTO. Our first event is the Valentines for I Love to Read month. Come and enjoy the fun in the cafeteria on February 8th. There will be a PTO meeting during this event, if parents are interested in joining us for that. We also have a great night with the VTC Basketball team on February 13th. Come in for an Open Gym and a chance to practice your skills with the basketball players.
Let's have a fun February!

I love to read month
We had a fun kick-off assembly for the I Love to Read Month today. Our literacy committee has been working diligently to put together an amazing month of activities to encourage our students to explore their love of reading. The students are asked to keep logs of their reading minutes for the next month. All students are encouraged to fill out at least 2 logs a week. Take a look at the wonderful video from the assembly introducing the theme "Reading Unlocks the Door".
At the end of the assembly, the classes were sitting with their buddy classes. The older students had selected and practiced books to read to their younger buddy class. Check out the adorable pictures of our buddies reading together.
Randolph Elementary is located in the heart of central Vermont. We serve approximately 325 students in grades Pre-K-6. Our students reside in East Randolph, North Randolph, South Randolph, Randolph Center and the village of Randolph. Our district public preschool programs are located at Randolph and Braintree Elementary Schools.
All of our schools have a warm and caring faculty and staff committed to each and every child. Together, our priority is to create a rich and engaging learning environment, where students are authentic contributors and partners in a positive, fun, and rigorous school climate.
Our support for students goes beyond the walls of Randolph Elementary, it extends out to our sister schools in Braintree and Brookfield, as well at Randolph Union High School and Randolph Technical Career Center. We work together at the administrative level to ensure the success of our students through shared professional development, curriculum, coaching, and learning resources.
Randolph Elementary School is a “PBIS” school committed to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. To that end, we believe that learning is not just limited to academics. We create a safe and supportive school where students also learn how to be learners; how to be members of a caring community; and how to resolve challenges with peers through positive and appropriate strategies. We directly teach behavior expectations, model what those expectations look like, and provide opportunities for practice across the entire school setting (classroom, hallways, cafeteria, playground, etc.). When students make behavior errors, we treat those as we would treat academic errors. We seek to understand why the student made the error, then reteach, support, and encourage until the appropriate behavior is mastered.
Our school is a community of happy learners, from kids to adults. We love our schools and are honored to serve the children and families of the Randolph, Braintree and Brookfield Elementary School communities.
We invite you to visit, get to know us, and join the fun! We suggest that you bookmark this page for quick reference. If you do not find what you need, please give us a call and we are happy to help.
