New Superintendent...

Eric Waddell chosen to lead Kittery School District as new Superintendent

The Kittery School Committee is pleased to announce that Eric Waddell has been selected as the new Superintendent of Schools to succeed retiring Superintendent Allyn Hutton starting July 1, 2017. Mr. Waddell, well known in the community as the Principal of Traip Academy since 2012, was chosen from a pool of nearly twenty candidates. Under his leadership, Traip Academy has undergone significant changes in the delivery of teaching, approach to curriculum, and integration of learning both in school and through internships. His familiarity with the community and experience with “proficiency-based learning” make him an ideal candidate to lead the school district in the coming years.

Mitchell Art

Analogous Portraits

 Third Grade artists at Mitchell School studied ANALOGOUS COLORS on the color wheel (colors that live next door to each other).

Students learned they can make each color “their own”, by blending different amounts of these ANALOGOUS COLORS, and never just have to use what comes out of the bottle!

 They mastered this concept quickly, and after looking at the art of portrait artist Sandra Silberzweig, created their own portraits in oil pastel and then filled their page with their OWN colors and lots of energy.

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.
