Dr. Robinson's 3-4 classroom blog from 2012-2016

The students in Dr. Robinson's 3-4 Team studied South Hero History for 6 years and took many field trips around town.
Click on this link to see where the students went around town and what townsfolk they met along the way.


At the end of 2018 Lake Champlain Access Television [LCATV] started filming our presentations. Their output is 2 to 4 times sharper than the videos I was putting up. That means it takes a little longer to get the video to start. [The reason I reduced the quality level of my videos.] Their production is different than mine and you will notice that immediately.
When you click on a video, it starts to load. It will take about 30 seconds [an eternity when you are waiting] to start playing. The speakers will start to sound and the video will look like it is not running for about 23 seconds. LCATV puts up an identification POSTER for those 23 seconds. Don't be alarmed, it is running if you can hear the sound.

Growing Up in South Hero in the Forties

Being a Kid in South Hero in the Forties and Some “Famous” People Who Lived in South Hero Friday, Feb. 7th @ 7PM We were so excited to have Joyce Robinson Blow and Susan McBride Crowley share personal stories of growing up in So. Hero in the forties. Both are from families who have lived here for generations. Joyce is the daughter of Hollis and Dorilda Robinson. Hollis was a carpenter and caught sturgeon which he shipped by train to Boston. As a child Joyce would help meet the train and transport “city slickers” and their servants to their summer homes. Every year on her birthday Joyce and her family would hop on the train in South Hero and go to Burlington for shopping and dinner. It was a big trip and so much fun! Sue is the daughter of Helen and Henry McBride. They lived on a farm on West Shore Road where Dad also had a sawmill. Granddad helped build the fill for the railroad and her grandmother cooked meals for the railroad workers. Sue has vivid memories and wonderful stories including tales about the Baker family and her close friends, the Folsoms, who gave the first $50,000 for the new school. Sue was actually in the first graduation Folsom School Class. Remember Colonel Jackson of Jackson Pt. fame, who drove the first car across the country? Guess who used to play with his granddaughters?
