Kittery OM Teams

CONGRATULATIONS!

Two of our Traip OM teams won their Division challenge (there were four different challenges to pick from; our two teams selected different challenges, so they were not competing against each other).  

They will now head to the State tournament in Biddeford April 1st.  The Traip teams are very, very well coached and they were well prepared for the competition.   These students have benefited from years of OM tournaments here in Maine and at the Worlds (last year in Iowa).  Their coaches are Dianne Fallon, Jeff Clifford, Karen Matso, and Caroline Campbell.  They are volunteers who have committed many, many hours to this program.

OM is creative problem-solving in its purest form.  It is student-driven and captures the 4 C's perfectly (creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking).

The Policy Committee asks for your written comments on the  policy below.  Please review this policy and return your comments to Donna at dschoff@kitteryschools.com by Friday, July 7th.   Policy development is a critical function of the School Committee.  Policies are the framework within which the School Department operates.  For this reason, we value your input throughout the policy development process.  Your comments make a difference.  Thank you for your time.

Healthy Kids' Snacks

Snacks are a bigger part of kids' diets than in the past.  Snacks can make positive or negative contributions to kids' diets - depending on the choices we offer.  Next time your children say, "I'm hungry," or if you need to get them through to the next meal, reach for one of these healthy snacks.
