Important note to Parents-Last night the School Board approved a revision to our calendar for next year (2016-2017). The conference day which was originally scheduled for, has now been moved to , which is voting day.
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
As you know, by state law we must hold a screening for all incoming kindergarten students. The screening takes place in May, and is always held in the kindergarten wing at our school during daytime hours. Our entire kindergarten staff participates, as do many of our specialists. Needless to say, on the days that we hold screening appointments, the current kindergarteners do not have school.
On Wednesday, May 25, Thursday, May 26, and Friday, May 27, your child will not be attending school so that we can hold screenings for the 2016 incoming kindergarteners. We will repeat this reminder several times between now and the end of May.
Thank you for your understanding.
John G. Flaherty

-Dental Clinic Opportunity-A dental program called Tooth Fairies will be providing dental care (cleaning, fluoride treatment, sealant treatments, oral evaluation and oral hygiene instruction and a free toothbrush) on May 19th and 20th to children who would otherwise not have access to dental services. Services provided are available to students with Maine Care, or students that are uninsured and not established with a dentist. If your child is seeing a dentist regularly, they would not need or qualify for these services. However, if you are having a hard time getting into the community dental clinic or your dentist is no longer accepting Maine Care, we can see your child. If you do not have Maine Care, the fee for the service is $42.00.
Please contact your school nurse for further information.
