Welcome to Deer Isle - Stonington Elementary School
2 Hour Delay
Happy 100th Day of School!
The elementary school has worked hard over the last year to develop a plan for trimester grading. Because of the budget issues and lack of an administrator, it did not get presented to the board before the beginning of the year. I brought the idea to the board on October 6th for discussion and it will be called to action at February's meeting. When I began at the beginning of the year teachers informed me that they were all in agreement with this effort. I have prepared a presentation to help anyone interested to understand the impact this would have, on learning and communication. Click here to view this presentation.
We are looking for volunteers to work with students at the middle school level in a variety of ways. There are two slots in the morning from 8:20-9:10 and from 9:15 to 10:05 where we are interested in having community members come in a teach to small groups of students. This could be a topic of interest to you. (building, plumbing, sewing, cooking...) This should be at least a four week commitment. Fingerprinting and background checks are required.
There is also a need for someone who might be interested in Leading a Math extension group for students who are interested in applying math concepts to solving real world problems.
