News from Superintendent’s Office

We begin our summer meetings with the annual organizational meeting of the MSAD 58 Board of Directors on TuesdayJuly 15 when the Chairman and  Vice-Chairman will be elected. Also at this timethe Directors will be deciding upon which Sub-committees will be necessary for the ensuing year.  They will then decide upon the clear purpose of the committees and elect membership.

This meeting will be followed by the regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting on Thursday, July 17.

During the summer months all Administrators will meet in multiple day-long sessions to plan the opening days of school for both teachers and students.

Additionally and most importantly, the Administrators will be spending several days looking at District data. This data includes multiple years of student test scores and other types of educational data available.  The purpose of this data inquiry process is to identify specific areas of academic strengths and weaknesses district-wide. We will use the knowledge gained from this inquiry process as a foundation for our academic planning.  In the end, we will be able to set clear objectives for future district-wide improvement.

Please feel free to contact me at 207-639-2086 ext 5289 regarding this or any other district issue.

Thank you, and I look forward to meeting many of you in the upcoming months. I am happy to be serving as your new MSAD 58 Superintendent of Schools!

Dr. Brouillet

Kingfield Academic Action

On Monday, January 13, 2014, eight students from grades 5-8 faced off in the Kingfield School Spelling Bee. Eighth-grader Brooke Hinkley won first place with sixth-grader Jackson Masterson coming in with a close second as runner up. Seventh-grader Kiley Holt finished third.

In January over a dozen students participated in the annual Geography Bee at KES. Our school champion is Trevor Hupper. Runners up we’re Maddy Osborne and Hayden Luce. This is the second time Trevor has been our school champion. He will take a test that will qualify him for the State Geography Bee later this spring.

With a theme of “You’re A Smart Cookie” the Kingfield School’s K-2 students celebrated the 100th  Day of school  on February 11, 2014.  The students spent the morning in mixed grade groups participating in a variety of activities. All students gathered together for a special snack and of course lots of counting.
