Bishop John A. Marshall School

The BJAMS Winter Cruisers Club

In the middle of Morrisville sits a small, but mighty school that boasts fields with majestic views and quiet serenity. Throughout the seasons, you'll find students playing soccer, lacrosse, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. Athletics is a vital part of the school's mission. Currently, we only have used Winter equipment for our 6th-8th graders. We'd like to see students start earlier in our Winter programs by the 3rd. grade. We are providing cross country ski equipment (skis,bindings,shoes,and poles) and snowshoes. It's so vital for children to get outside and be healthy all year long!

Thrive After School and Summer Program

Thrive After School and Summer Program

Thrive is a childcare/enrichment program serving the diverse, close-knit, and resilient community of Winooski. We support children in grades K-5 to develop their literacy, STEM, and socioemotional skills during after school and summer time. We plan to create a Makerspace to enhance the engineering and tinkering options we provide to kids, promoting youth resilience. Using an iterative process to solve problems and persist through failure will help our students overcome challenges in other areas of their lives. Students will collaborate, imagine, and problem-solve while building cars and structures, coding and programming robots, and exploring with a 3-D printer.
