Class of 2017 Annual Christmas Tree Sale, December 12, 13 & 14:

The Class of 2017 is holding the annual Christmas Tree Sale at American Flatbread in Waitsfield. This sale is the most important fundraiser in support of the Sophomore class. We have been holding the sale since 2003 thanks to the generosity of George Schenk from Flatbread. We invite and encourage any parent of a sophomore student to help out during the sale date with their student’s Teacher Advisory group. In addition, we really need assistance on December 5th at 4:00 PM to unload and set up trees. Parent volunteers receive a $5 voucher toward the purchase of a tree. Finally, all community members can help out by purchasing their Vermont grown tree from the sophomore class. If you would like to volunteer on the 5th, please contact Ellen Berrings at 882-1167 or eberrings@wwsu.org.

Dates of the sale are: December 12 from 4:00-7:30, and December 13 and 14 from 10:00 AM-6:00 PM.



Pictures are needed for the yearbook.  If you have any school sports, music, community, etc. pictures we can use in the yearbook, please submit them by going to the harwood.org website, clicking on Academics, then Senior Information, followed by upload pictures to the Josten’s yearbook website.  We will not be able to use all photos, but the more we have to choose from, the more complete our school yearbook will be.  Please remember this is a “school” and not just “senior” yearbook and we need photos of all grade activities.


Senior Parents:  There is still time to place a Senior Recognition ad in the 2015 Royal Tartan Yearbook.  The deadline is January 15.  The recognition ads can be placed by parents, relatives, or friends and can recognize one senior student or several (senior sport team members, BFFs, cousins, etc.).  Please contact Nancy Myrto at 244-5186 ext. 0 or nmyrto@wwsu.org for more information.
