Due to the inclement weather, Mad Science is cancelled tonight. Please be safe!
Our school is participating in the state of Maine's Read to ME challenge. The goal is for all of our students to be read to by an adult or for the child to read to an adult for at least 15 minutes a day. This challenge runs during the month of February. Each week, students will bring home a chart to keep track of how many times they read or were read to for at least 15 minutes. Below are some links to resources about the importance of daily reading as well as some ideas.
On Friday January 29, schools in MSAD 61 will be conducting a mock lockdown and reunification drill, which will include the participation of local law enforcement officials. Drills will take place at different times at Sebago Elementary School, Songo Locks School, Lake Region Middle School, and Lake Region High School on that day.
The purpose of this exercise is to ensure that all schools and local officials have the appropriate resources and procedures in place in the event of an actual emergency situation.
Please be aware that you may be receiving messages from your student that the school is in lockdown. We are letting you know in advance so that you will be assured that this is only a test.
Also, please be aware that during the drill, no one will be allowed in or out of the school building. The drill is expected to last for approximately 30 minutes.
Please contact the administration of your student’s school if you have any questions about this upcoming drill.
Don't forget to sign up for the Mad Science Program that starts next Friday! The program runs for 6 weeks on Friday afternoons from 3:10-4:10 and costs $75. You can register your child online at www.maine.madscience.org or call 878-2222. It's lots of fun and educational!
Just a friendly reminder that students need to be prepared with the appropriate cold weather gear to fully participate at recess.
* Students in kindergarten through 3rd grade are required to wear snow boots, snow pants, a winter coat, a hat, and mittens or gloves to go onto the playground to play in the snow.
* Students in 4th and 5th grade have the same requirements, except for snow pants, unless they want to play in the snow.
* Students who do not have the required snow gear to play out on the playground, can participate in our Walking Club out in our circle.
* Sending in a set of spare clothes is very helpful for students who get wet while playing outside.
* All students are expected to wear shoes while they are in school. Wearing their boots leads to sweaty feet (which will then get cold outside) and wears out the carpeting.
* For safety reasons, students should not wear slippers while they are in school, unless they can also be worn outside. In the event we need to evacuate the building, students do not have time to change into boots or shoes, they have to wear what is already on their feet.
Schools will be closed for the holiday break from Wednesday, December 23rd through Sunday, January 3rd.
All Mondays in January and February are early release days. Students will be dismissed at 12:00.
Don't forget about the Public Hearing scheduled for tonight at 7:00 at Lake Region High School. The Public Hearing will give you an opportunity to hear what the proposed project is all about and how much it will cost. You will also have an opportunity to voice your opinion.
Voting on the proposed project will take place next Tuesday at the Town Hall.
Thank you friends, families, and students for all of your support this past week at our Scholastic Book Fair. Your support allowed us to purchase all remaining items on the teachers' wish lists to help build their classroom libraries (about $300 worth of books!) and $400 in Scholastic Dollars for Mrs. Fifield to add books to our school's library.
We'd like to thank all of the teachers for their flexibility this week with fair. We'd also like to thank all of our volunteers for helping us run the fair. Our volunteers really helped to make our fair a huge success!
The winners of the book prize packages were Trey in Kindergarten and Lauren in 4th grade. They were very excited to get their prizes!
If you missed the fair, we still have the online fair available until November 10th. All items purchased through this link will be shipped for free directly to the school. All proceeds from the online fair will go directly to purchase books for the school's library. http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/sebagoelementaryschool
