2017-18 Commitments

The Kittery School Committee, in conjunction with the District's Leadership Team (principals, assistant principals, etc.) worked together recently to articulate what they perceive as the most pressing commitments for the 2017-18 school year.  The group is focused on two major commitments (sometimes referred to as 'goals') for the new school year.  That is not to say that other important work will be pushed aside or overlooked--certainly not!  Rather, the articulation of Districtwide commitments is a way to focus human resources, financial resources, and professional development time.  Articulating commitments is like saying, "We know we have an important and complex job to do.  We will endeavor to get all the work is done, but we will pay special attention to this (these) as we prioritize time, money, and other resources."  

Please take a look at the attached proposed commitments.  The School Committee will take action on them at their next meeting which is September 19th.  If you'd like to offer some support, advice, suggestions, or recommendations, please do!  An e-mail message to your student's building principal or to me will be most welcomed.  

Thank you for your input!

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.
