BHS to end school year with new workshops

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Burlington High School is making plans to transform how students wrap up their school year.

This spring, BHS will launch a Year End Study program. Students will spend the last two weeks of class in hands-on workshops. Topics range from how math and cooking are connected, to studying Thoreau while hiking around Burlington. The goal is to reinforce classroom skills in a way that's closely connected to what students will experience in the real world.

"The bottom line goal is to show students that they can learn in a lot of different ways and connect that learning with what they're doing in the classroom," Burlington High School Principal Amy Mellencamp said.

The workshops will mix students from all grade levels and include an intensive writing component. BHS credits Rutland High School for the program.
