Welcome to Deer Isle - Stonington Elementary School  



The staff of DISES would like to invite families to an open house on August 30, 2016 to kick off the new school year. This will be a time where you can meet your teachers and see your classrooms. There also will be the sports information meeting for all parents and students wishing to play sports, and the MLTI meeting for grade 7-8 students.

Trimester Grading
The staff here at DISES wish to thank the school board and the community for supporting our shift to trimester grading. This will enable use to better communicate student progress towards the standards.  Trimester reporting will go into effect for the 2016-2017 school year


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.
