Don't forget our Family Breakfast tomorrow starting at 7:00am. This is a wonderful PTC event and we welcome our families to join us for this free breakfast! Parking is tough, so if you can park over at the YMCA and walk over using the path in back of the Y, this would help with limited parking!

A message from Superintendent, David Walker: “...can’t trust that day.“ For those of you old enough to remember the Mamas and the Papas that might make sense. It appears we are not done with winter just yet. While the track of the impending storm is not completely clear, it is clear we will deal with snow or a snow/rain mix tomorrow morning. We will be using the new notification system linked with Apptegy, our website provider, for the first time. We had hoped to have the opportunity to use the new system with some low impact notifications for testing, but it appears we will not have that opportunity. Please monitor our website and WABI TV as a sure way to know the status of schools opening on Monday. Please share this information within your social media network to help spread the word!
Our school is now open. Thank you for your cooperation.
Don’t forget we will have our Glow Dance on Friday Night from 6 pm to 8 pm. There will be concessions sold at the dance, but the dance is FREE! This is a PTC event sponsored by the D.O.G.S (Dads of great students)

After studying about farm animals and everything Farm, Kindergarteners took a walking field trip up to UMaine’s Witter Farm to explore the cows, horses and sheep that they have there. Farm staff gave students, teachers and parents a guided tour around the farm where students could see, hear, touch and smell all that the farm had to offer! Students will walk up again in the spring to see the spring babies!
Thank you to Mrs. Wilcox and Mrs Lunn for a great celebration of Red Ribbon Week. We all had so much fun with each dress up day!
