A message from our music teacher! I'm so excited to share another song with Alfred and Lyman elementary schoolers! This song is Count On Me by Bruno Mars. I chose this song because I think it really shows how special friendship is, and how important our friends are to us. I will be posting a new song every week on my channel, so be sure to check it out! I miss you all, and I can't wait until we're making music together again! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJNM3u15RLjwvkiL-gQRdbw?view_as=subscriber

Many thanks to the Alfred Elementary families who were able to join our first virtual CARETime student assembly today! We said the pledge, sent happy birthday wishes, and shared our Alfred Bunch video! It was wonderful to see the smiling faces:)

Hello all, one of the most important things we can do for our children is read to them. Please see the attached video of Principal Pellerin reading "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" by Laura Numeroff. https://youtu.be/AUpQY6z_lic I challenge our students to read their favorite book, record it, and share it with me!

In addition to the two open meal sites at Line Elementary and Massabesic Middle School, we will be implementing ​a ​free meal delivery​ service​ via specific bus routes​​ starting on Monday, March 23rd. These bus routes have been set up to bring food to the areas in our communities with the highest need. In order to keep the meals as safe as possible and to allow time for staff to safely prepare the meals, we will be doing two deliveries per day. One delivery in the morning for breakfast and one delivery in the afternoon for lunch. The bus routes will run Monday through Friday. Please visit the RSU 57 website or app to access the route map​ and approximate delivery times​. Students will have the option to receive breakfast and lunch each day and on Fridays they will receive two additional meals for the weekend. Our focus is to get meals closer to the students in our district that desperately need them. If your student is in need of meals and you cannot access the daily bus routes or the open meal sites please call 207-247-3221 x​2257 and we will do our very best to assist you. The meals available through our two meal sites as well as our specific area bus routes are available to all children 18 and under, free of charge. We want to be able to offer all children in our district the nutrition they need during this closure. In order to continue doing so, we do ask that only families that are in high need receive these meals. ​We will continue this service as long as our food supply and staffing needs can meet the demand.​​​

As I stand in the cafe at the end of a long day, I cannot help but smile at what I see. Although the circumstances are difficult, I am so appreciative of the hard work and collaboration of all of our staff across the district to continue to serve our students. Thank you:)

Today at Alfred students in 5th grade were part of a Zoom with the National Park Service in St Louis Missouri. Students learned about Ulysses Grant as a man, a president, and slaveholder. Students looked at various historical documents to determine what happened to William Jones, Ulysses S. Grant's one and only slave once he was emancipated. A ranger from the National Park Service helped students to examine the documents and learn more about William Jones and his life as an emancipated citizen. This was an interactive presentation that allowed students to ask questions and to interact with students from other schools across America!
