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!

Strong Students Support “Coins for Cancer”

Every one of us probably knows of someone that has been affected by cancer.  Each year the Strong School does a fundraiser for “Coins for Cancer” through Little Caesars.  The school participates by selling pizza kits.  The profit for the project is $5.00 per kit that comes back to the school.  The profits are kept local and go to offset costs to a family that has cancer.  Recently the Strong School completed the fundraiser where there were 35 participants and 173 kits were sold for a grand total of $865.00 raised for the cause.  Thank you to all that helped to support this project.
