Kindergarten Screening and Registration Coming Soon!
Kindergarten Screening and Registration will be held on April 24, 25, and 26. All students who will be 5 years old on or before October 15, 2018, are eligible to enter kindergarten in the fall. Please call the school at 787-3701 to set up an appointment. We look forward to meeting you!
Making Up Snow Days
We will be making up another snow day by staying at school for an extra hour for five Mondays in a row: March 26, April 2, 9, 23, 30. Students will be dismissed at 4:00.
We will also be staying late for an additional Wednesday because we missed one due to a snow storm. Our last extended Wednesday will be April 11th.
If we don’t have any more snow days, the last day of school will be Friday, June 15th.
It's still winter!
Just a friendly reminder that it is still winter and the kids need to wear their winter gear. The snow is so deep on the playground right now that all students must have snow pants, boots, coats, and gloves or mittens on to play out in the snow. It is great snow for making snowmen!
Hannaford Helps Schools Slips
The Hannaford Helps Schools fundraiser was a huge success! We raised about $800! All proceeds will directly support our students.
The Penny War was a HUGE Success!
The students and their families came together to raise a whopping $969.80! All the money will be put towards the Holly Jolly Helpers program, which supports families in our school who need a little extra help during the holiday season. We appreciate your support of this worthy cause!
Hunting Season is upon us (a friendly reminder)
As Mainers, many families participate in the sport of hunting at this time of year. This means firearms are often transported in vehicles. Please let this notice serve as a reminder: firearms of any kind (even unloaded hunting rifles and those with conceal carry permits) are NOT allowed anywhere on school property, which begins at the entrance of the driveway to the school. If you have a firearm in your vehicle when you come to school, you will need to park on the main road out in front of the school, which is public property, and then walk up to the main entrance.
Student Drop Off Reminder
Students can be dropped off between 8:15 and 8:30. Teachers are in meetings prior to 8:15, which means there is no supervision for students before 8:15. Students brought to school after 8:30 are considered tardy and must be signed into the office by an adult. Thank you for your help!
Breakfast in the Classroom
Did you know that breakfast is served at school each day? Did you know that if your child qualifies for either free or reduced price lunch they automatically qualify for FREE breakfast? Following nutritional guidelines, a healthy breakfast is provided to students who want it. Having a healthy breakfast is the best way to help your child start the school day on the right foot!
Laptops in SAD 61
We are very fortunate to be upgrading the number of laptops available to our students at the elementary level. We now have one-to-one access for students in grades 3-5 and two-to-one laptops for students in grades 1-2. The laptops will remain at school. We are very excited to have increased access to laptops at the elementary level!
Summer Pre-Kindergarten
Summer Pre-K was a success! It ran Mondays-Thursdays from 8:30-12:30. It started July 31st and ended on August 17th. We hope to offer this program again next year!

Fidget Spinners at School
These little devices were originally designed to help students with attention disorders and anxiety - experts say having something to occupy hands may help improve concentration. However, ​we are not seeing them used in that way at Sebago Elementary. ​
The spinners have caught on with the general population as a toy and now come in every color and finish imaginable, with add-ons and doo-hickeys galore.
Fidget​ spinners ​have made a huge appearance at our school. Unfortunately, they are being used as toys, and have become distracting to the owners of the spinners as well as those around them. We are asking that the spinners remain at home​.​
Thank you for keeping your child's fidget spinner at home.​
100th Day of School
UPDATE: We collected 376 items, which we donated to the Sebago Food Panty! We went well over our goal of collecting 100 food items!
