ID-4 directors propose budget increase of 1/52%

Posted on February 1, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters on April 14 will consider a proposed Mary Hogan Elementary School budget of $5,771,990, representing a 1.52-percent increase in spending compared to this year.

The budget reflects no new programs, nor additional teaching staff. It actually represents a decrease of $87 in spending per pupil (from $13,539 to $13,452). That’s in large part because the school anticipates welcoming eight additional students next year, for a potential total of 395, according to Mary Hogan Elementary School Associate Principal Tom Buzzell.

MIDDLEBURY — Students at Middlebury College are putting down their pencils and picking up knitting needles this month in a volunteer effort to keep Addison County residents warm.

The students are part of a Winter Term workshop that is meeting once a week in January to create hats and scarves they’ll donate to the Middlebury nonprofit Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE).

For AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer Carrie Pratt, who works at the college, the project was a way to combine two of her favorite things: knitting, a hobby she’s enjoyed since high school, and community service.
