All the Places to Love by Patricia MacLachlan

For the 2021-2022 school year Fletcher Elementary has welcomed several new teachers.  What you may not realize is our student enrollment which was 93 at the beginning of last school year is up to 116!  This is great news for a small Vermont school! We are so excited to introduce  new friends to all the places to love in Fletcher!  

As a new principal to the school I wanted to first get to know students better.  To accomplish this I decided to visit classrooms and share one of my favorite books, All the Places to Love.  This book talks about the special places a boy’s family shares with him around their farm and village. After reading this story, I couldn’t wait to hear from your children what their favorite places are here in Fletcher that “makes all the difference in the world” to them.  Here are just a few of the places that are loved that they wanted to share with others.  

In my backyard there is a cliff where you can watch the prettiest sunsets.
-Kale
I like swimming in Metcalf Pond because it is cool. 
-William
In my quiet spot I can climb trees.
-Claire
My special spot is at Nonna and Papa’s woods.  I like it because the sunset is beautiful.
-Harper
Behind my grandma’s house is peaceful and we build fairy houses.
-Summer
My favorite place to go is in my backyard because it is peaceful and I can hear the birds chirp.
-Mariah
My sugarhouse is special to me because whenever we make maple syrup I get to taste test it in these little tiny plastic cups.
-Fiona

Fletcher Elementary is a great learning community to join and our students are looking forward to sharing their favorite things about Fletcher with new teachers, students, and even the new principal!

Aimee Toth is currently the Principal of Fletcher Elementary School and is a new contributor to THE FWSU STORY.
