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.

Shadowland - A community in South Hero

On July 5,2019 the SHHS presented the History of Shadowland. Cathie Penrose Merrihew and Julie Brown Wolfe, both long time residents [not saying how long], shared stories and pictures of an area that started as a campsite for builders of the railroad and has evolved into a community in South Hero.
This was a well attended presentation with great audience participation.  Stories abound about the original size to what it is now, how it was developed, original and current uses.  AND, as we have heard in some previous presentations, the land deals of the time might have been less than above board, a handshake, the back of an envelope, or a wink and a nod.
The presentation took place at Folsom Ed Center and all were welcome.  So watch the video, review the pictures and get a sense of how a unique little part of South Hero became what it is today.
