News & Events
The students of Rock Point School are incredibly pleased to announce their 14 annual art show.
Our art show, “The Road Less Traveled” features a large body of work from the freshmen through senior classes.
Rock Point School will be exhibiting their work at the Rose Street Gallery located at 78 Rose St. in Burlington. We will be holding an opening reception on Friday, May 2nd from 5:30-7:30. You will see the fantastic art work and meet the artists. There will be delicious refreshments.
Exhibited through May. For more information contact Jeannie Waltz at (802) 863-1104 or email@example.com.
Thanks to all our guests who helped us raise money for the scholarship fund while having a great time and celebrating the mission of Rock Point School. Over fifty guests came to learn more about Rock Point, listen to music played by students and friends, eat delicious food prepared by our chef, and to bid on some choice items donated by local artists and businesses. Items included an Easter Basket from Lake Champlain Chocolates, a massage, a week at a vacation home in Maine, 2 nights at the Basin Harbor Club, and many more enticing options!
We had a blast seeing friends old and new, bidding on some awesome items, and enjoying fabulous food.
Can’t wait for next year!
The weather has finally turned springy! Students and staff are holding off on jumping in the lake, but we were able to do a solar observation through a telescope fitted with a solar filter on Monday. We got to check out features such as sun spots and the outer corona atmosphere! We can’t wait to do more observations of the sky (both day and night) as the weather continues to get warmer.
We are proud to include many ardent Sox fans among our staff and students (crazy though they may be :-) and this trip is a great chance to return to the homeland.
After enjoying the game, we are all getting together for lunch in Newton.
The tournament will be directed by our own Kyler Star, the 2013 all-Vermont champion for this card game.
Here’s wishing everyone plenty of mana and lots of fun!
Today the Core 3 Physics students are taking a field trip to the Joseph C McNeil Generating Station, our local municipal wood-fired electricity generation plant.
It is a remarkable facility that converts leftover wood and other biomass to carbon-free electricity for the city. They give a great tour, including the amazing fire at the core of the plant, and the “permanent rainstorm” that recycles the water used to turn the turbine.
Thanks to the employees of the plant for providing the tour!
Check out the pictures here to see just how much fun we had. And check out the race results listed below!
Not only that, but this year’s event set a new record for fundraising to support the school’s maple sugaring program. Not only do our students benefit from this excellent place-based educational resource, but the local community benefits as well through the pre-school tours we host each year.
Thanks so much to everyone who helped make this event such a success!
We invite the community in for a big brunch featuring the maple syrup we’ve been working hard to produce, along with lots of things that taste good with maple syrup, of course.
We also host a fun run around the trails on our property, just now defrosting from the long winter. This year it’s a 5k, and we’re pumped!
Thanks to all the staff and students who worked hard to get this day together, and all the great folks from our community who show up to partake. Hooray for Spring!
