BFA Fairfax: State of the Union Essay Contest

For 13 years, Senator Bernie Sanders has asked Vermont High School students to participate in his State of the Union Essay contest.  This contest challenges students to highlight issues effecting the United States and Vermont and propose solutions.  This year, almost 400 Vermont students wrote essays to Sanders.  Three BFA-Fairfax students were chosen as finalists.

The Power of a Greeting!

Each morning students across FWSU are greeted as they enter the buildings or classrooms to start their day. Sometimes it’s in rain gear with an umbrella, sometimes it’s in full winter gear with ski goggles, and sometimes it’s with silly costumes and music to just bring a smile to someone's face.
