We did it! We spent almost $12,000.00 and now have new playground pieces in the ground. Thank you to everyone involved, the Tremont community and surrounding towns, parents, and of course the kids. Please take pride in our playground and don’t abuse it. It took a lot of work to raise that much money. We want to continue on doing so and keep purchasing more new pieces, but need to know that the kids are using the pieces correctly and being respectful.
On another note we still have cookbooks for sale, and will have them during the School Book Fair and Christmas Concert. You can also find them at Carroll’s Drug, Sawyer’s and the Southwest Harbor Library.
Enjoy your break and Happy Thanksgiving!

Our new Curriculum Coordinator, Julie Meltzer, has been working with K-8 schools to develop a new report card. This work will continue through the year and in the meantime a placeholder report card will be used. You will see this placeholder report card for all three trimesters this school year. The K-4 and 5-8 placeholder report cards are very similar. There is a purposeful attempt to use a narrative to describe, share and highlight your child’s skills, challenges, etc. Please be patient as we continue to investigate the best way to report a child’s progress to parents. Thanks!
Mr. Wood is offering his Options Program again this year. He has been running the Options program on Tuesdays and Thursdays since school started. We have our study hall/music at the end of the day so for students who are not in music can choose to go into his classroom to build, create and repair things with Mr. Wood’s assistance. These sessions run through the end of school until 4:30 p.m. His first themed session, "Build a Bicycle", will begin in the near future. This session is full so be sure to look for the form for the next session, "Cooking Counts", beginning on November 12th.
