We are offering two new classes that start next week.

Memoir Writing
What will your legacy be? How will you share it with your loved ones? Are you interested in learning a compelling way to tell your personal story? Join local writer and published memoirist Janet Givens to learn techniques and methods for bringing your story to life. The four-part course will cover which story to tell, how to craft scenes, and how to tell what type of story writer you are. The course will meet every Saturday in March for 2 hours and will include special guests presenters. Don't miss this chance to put your legacy on paper. 

Digital Photography
Want to learn the secret to great digital photographs? As spring unfolds would you like to hone your skills on how to capture that beauty with your camera? Our own Steve Legge, the photographer for all SJA events, will be teaching this course on how to frame photos and improve your photo-taking skills. He’ll even take the time to explain all of the buttons and dials on your camera! The course meets Wednesday evenings in March.
Additionally, we have many new offerings including Career and Technical Training, Home Improvement Skills, Life Skills, and Enrichment courses, as well as Professional Development courses — all designed to help you learn, grow, and succeed. Take a look for learning that can upgrade your future! 

Programs by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s Jukebox Quartet allow four outstanding members of the Orchestra a chance to strut their stuff with an eclectic mix of contemporary and classical repertoire presented in an informal format.

For our March 12, 2022 concert, we’re shaking things up and swapping two string players with two percussionists for a new, whirlwind take on Jukebox. Violinist Brooke Quiggins and cellist John Dunlop are joined by percussionists D. Thomas Toner and Nicola Cannizzaro for a singular musical experience, curated by VSO Artistic Advisor and Project Conductor Matt LaRocca. 

Our Jukebox musicians dive into works by traditional and cutting-edge composers and are joined in this concert by a youth string quartet from St. Johnsbury Academy: Hale Boyden, Aurora Gilbert, Aniella Thompson, Maaike Dam (violin) and Greer Kennedy, Mary Fowler (viola).

Tickets can be purchased here.

After a tour of the Maker Space, Ms. McGarvin's Career Exploration Class began exploring STEM and engineering career paths. As part of the class, they formed teams to construct towers using marshmallows, tape, and pasta. The challenge was to build either the tallest tower or the sturdiest.
Ms. Laverty and Tech Storm team members go over the construction of their next project during their meeting last week.
We had a great start to Winter Carnival with events like the Slow Bike Race and are looking forward to Part II. For now, photos from each of the days can be viewed here.
