NEW ASA-- Guitar with Jonathan Downs grades 3-5 will be offered on Tuesdays starting February 27th for our intermediate students.  With thanks for a PEF grant, we have 5 new guitars to use for this activity.  Therefore it is first come, first served unless your child has his own guitar to use.  Please be on the lookout for the sign up sheet coming out this week.



Kindergarten and pre- Kindergarten registration begins on Monday, February 26th at PIES


We are VERY excited to announce that we will be adding two grade levels at PIES next year.  In addition to adding a new kindergarten class,  we will also be offering full day (8:20-3:05, M-F) public pre- K at our school starting in the fall of 2018.  We are happy to collaborate with Peaks Island Children’s Workshop to make this happen and in turn provide more childcare space on island for current and future young families.


For more information, please contact Ms. Pam at the school.


Digging Through History , CULMINATION, April 5


Essential Questions:

Grades 2-5 : How have Maine farmers used resources to produce food through history?  What are the habits of historians?

Grade K-1:  How can we produce food?  What do seeds need to grow?    What makes healthy soil?  Why compost?


Next Vision Meeting, Wednesday, March 7 (postponed due to snow day)


We have moved our meetings to Wednesdays at 3:30 to accommodate more interested people’s busy schedules.  On the agenda next time is GSNN national conference, banners/signs update, Green Schools/garden progress and After School Academy.  Please join us.
