Dear RSU 68 Community Members,

First and foremost, thank you all for your support of the 2017-2018 school budget!!! The RSU 68 school board worked very hard to present a budget that is a balance between what is in the best interest of students and what is fiscally responsible. We are excited to be able to implement some of the changes that go with the new budget.

We have said goodbye to a few of our amazing educators who are moving on. Ms. Dunton will be heading to Guilford to be their new technology director. Ms. Towle will be the new guidance counselor at Dexter Regional High School. Ms. Povak will be joining her husband in New York. Ms. Russell and Ms. McBride will be moving to Florida and southern Maine respectively to be with their family. Ms. Buerger, Ms. Hall, and Mr. Sailer will be moving to new adventures as well. 

They will all be missed.Some changes that we will be looking forward to in the coming year include a full-time elementary art teacher and an additional educational technician at FA. Matthew Larrabee will be our new technology director; he comes to us from Orono. Ms. Wark and Mr. Andrews will be our new 3rd grade teachers and they are both newly graduated. Mr. Mowrey is looking for a new challenge so he will be moving to 4th grade. Cassidy Miller has been hired as the new 7th grade science teacher.

This summer will be a busy one!! The maintenance crew will work on shining the floors and making sure the walls are clean. We are continuing our work to figure out the safest traffic pattern here at the school. Architects have been to the school, witnessed the process in action, and are getting ready to make recommendations to the Building and Grounds committee. I am expecting that we can come up with a safe solution to this problem. Also be on the watch for a new and improved website. And teachers will be in during the summer to help with two different summer schools as well as to do curriculum work, update guided reading books and of course in August to set up their rooms for the new year. Please come and participate in our summer lunch program at the cafeteria. More information about that program can be found on our homepage.

I am looking forward to the new school year. We will continue to work on curriculum and begin thinking about potential new programming for math. Gifted and talented work will continue with meetings to identify and create plans for students in the arts. Teaching staff and administrators will be implementing the Performance Evaluation-Professional Growth plans for the first time. Our technology plan should be approved so we will work to put that plan into action. Due to a Maine Community Foundation (MCF) grant and with the support of the budget, we will be offering intramurals to students four times a year. We will also be able to offer ukulele lessons from money in the MCF grant. 

There are always new opportunities happening at SeDoMoCha. Please keep up with us either on the website, or via twitter @sedomocha or @sedo_shorey. As always we are continuing to build the future.

Have a wonderful summer!

My Best,
