Woodstock boys hockey and Sharon boys basketball teams each won a state championship on Monday night. Congratulations, y’all!
Sharon’s victory was especially sweet — it was the first time the school had won in any sport, and the win rounded out an undefeated season. Wow.
History: @SharonAcademy hangs on 60-56 to capture its first state title of any kind in school history.

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott was on hand on Thursday to talk about his beliefs with students at The Sharon Academy.
The speech was part of the school’s two-year “beliefs” curriculum, according to Valley News reporter Matt Hongoltz-Hetling.
For the past decade, the academy’s 10th-graders have delivered lengthy presentations on their own core belief systems. Each student is encouraged to distill the essence of their beliefs down to a single word — a belief word, like a verbal talisman that would forever help them to navigate the rough waters of a post-graduate world.
The event closed out with a lively question-and-answer session once Scott finished his prepared remarks.
The topics ranged from questions about his stances on issues like net neutrality and the role of political lobbyists, to his personal experiences growing up as a motor-savvy tech student in Barre, Vt.

If you know of a girl ages 7-18 who likes to sing, have fun and be part of an amazing organization during after school hours they should consider joining the Vermont Girls Choir!
The Vermont Girls Choir is a girls choir located in Sharon, Vt., at the Seven Stars Arts Center and is dedicated to promoting choral music education to all girls in Vermont.
Rehearsals for the current season have already started, but organizer Jessie Piermont said in an email that they
hold the choirs per semesters, so girls can always sign up for an audition no matter the season. If they audition now they can join the girls choir for the spring semester which starts in January!”
