    Dear Parents and Guardians, June 12, 2017

     

    June 19, 2017

    Can it be that it is the end of the school year?  That’s right, the LAST DAY of SCHOOL will be a half day on Monday, June 19, 2017.  With that said, please be sure to make arrangements for your student(s) to meet someone off the bus or be picked up accordingly.  

    Parent pick-up is at 11:30 a.m. and our buses begin loading at 11:40 a.m. on those days.  Students will be sent home with their report cards and final class placements.    

    It has been a pleasure watching the children at SES flourish before our eyes.  You have wonderful children who are excited about learning.  Thank you for all you do to support your child's education.  A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children.

    The 2017- 2018 RSU 20 School Calendar can be accessed at www.rsu20.org.  Incoming Kindergarten students will receive a letter in August regarding the Open House and officially welcoming them to Searsport Elementary School!

    The Playground Fundraising committee and the PIE group wish to announce that the Darling's Ice Cream for a Cause will be parked outside SES on Tuesday, June 13 from 1 - 2:30 pm.  All donations brought in will go towards playground improvements.

About Our School!

We are a Kindergarten-through-fifth-grade school of over 225 students, with twelve classrooms, two resource learning centers, a Title One math and literacy classroom and an Afterschool Program. SES has superb parental and community support. We are committed to excellence in education. Our achievement goals for students focus on literacy and math. We are a learning community dedicated to continuous progress.

We believe that all students can learn and be successful. Working together, school, families and the community, we strive to provide a quality education program for all students. Students are nurtured and taught in a supportive, caring environment. We strive to provide every opportunity for maximum student achievement and confidence. Student assessment data indicate that children are doing a great job of applying academic skills and processes in meaningful ways in order to meet or exceed expectations on local and state standards.

We believe that education is a cooperative effort among home, school and community. Thank you for your interest in Searsport Elementary School.

Searsport Elementary School was built in 1991. If you visit our school you will see it reflects our coastal heritage. Murals, paintings, and sculpture depict the ocean, and tiles on the outside of the school are of ocean animals. We currently have approximately 200 students in grades K-5.

Our students have art, music including chorus for grades 4 & 5 and band for grade 5, library and P.E. weekly. Teachers have access to 5 portable laptop carts and one iPad cart. Our library has over 8,300 titles. Click on our automated catalog to see what the library has to offer. 

We have a full-time guidance counselor in the building, who provides classroom, small group, and individual guidance. Our guidance program works to support the academic needs and meet the emotional needs of our students.
