As Mainers, many of our families participate in the sport of hunting at this time of year. This also means that firearms are often transported in vehicles. Please let this notice serve as a reminder that 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. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Due to the weather the Pups and Trucks event has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 9th. The flyer that is going home today has the wrong date on it.
SES will be holding a dental clinic on Wednesday, November 12. Look for permission slips in your child's Friday folder!
September is Attendance Awareness Month! Share the News…..
New Study: Student Attendance Matters for Academic Performance: A state-by-state analysis of national testing data demonstrates that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, a result that holds true at every age, in every demographic group and in every state and city tested.
In fourth grade, the absentee students scored an average 12 points lower on the reading assessment than those with no absences — more than a full grade level on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) achievement scale. In eighth grade, absentee students scored an average 18 points lower on the math assessment.

This attachment helps to demonstrate why reading aloud to your children is so helpful, especially during the summer months.
Don't forget to return all permission slips! Students who do not have permission slips will not be allowed to go on that day's field trip, even an all school field trip. Permission slips must be completely filled out in order for your child to go on any field trip. Phone calls cannot be accepted per Board policy.
