Chelsea students in grades 4-12, this is a great opportunity! If interested and you need help with your application just let us know. MEDIA RELEASE: Maine DOE Seeks Students to Serve on First-ever Student Cabinet The Maine Department of Education (DOE) today announced that it is launching its first-ever student cabinet, a group of students that will meet quarterly with Commissioner Pender Makin to discuss educational opportunities, improvements, and policy. The purpose of the Student Cabinet is to provide a forum for Maine students’ voices to be heard. Cabinet meetings will allow students from different grade levels, backgrounds, and areas of Maine to share their opinions and offer advice about Maine’s education system with Maine’s Commissioner of Education and other leaders from the Maine Department of Education. Students grades 4 – 12 and first year of college are invited to submit an application to be a member of the Student Cabinet. Members selected will serve for a term of 12 months starting on November 1, 2019. Cabinet meetings will be held throughout the school year. Most meetings are expected to be held as video conferences which will require cabinet members to have access to a computer or device with an internet connection. There will be at least one in-person meeting, for which the Maine DOE will reimburse travel costs. Student Cabinet members will be selected based on representation of Maine’s geography, with a goal of two students from each county in Maine, based on the pool of applications submitted, and inclusive of the diverse cultural and economic backgrounds of students throughout Maine. Selected students will be expected to attend scheduled meetings, prepare for each meeting as needed, work in a collaborative manner with each other and with Department staff as needed; and express views and opinions openly, constructively, and respectfully. By becoming a member on the Maine DOE Student Cabinet, students will benefit by: Having a direct role in improving education for students in Maine; Gain important leadership, public speaking, decision making, and team building skills; Develop a network of support and mentors through exposure to leaders across the state, and; Have a great addition to their resume and applications for secondary opportunities. Instructions for applying: Students interested in serving on the Maine DOE Student Cabinet will need to submit the electronic application, with consent from a parent or guardian, by Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 5 pm. Applications can be submitted electronically here. For more information contact Kelli Deveaux (207) 624-6747 or kelli.deveaux@maine.gov

Can you believe that it's that time of the year, already?!! Monday starts the kick off of our 3rd Annual "Spirit Week" Food Drive. I have decided to do it a week earlier this year, as the week that we normally hold it is only a four day week. Also, the book fair will be in full swing, so it made the most sense to move it to this coming week (11/5-11/9). As you know, this is always a fun event for staff and students, and most importantly it makes a HUGE contribution to our own food pantry. It's a great way to pull everyone together for a meaningful cause, as we kick off the "season of giving". With your help, we have the opportunity to make a BIG contribution to those in need, within our own school community. As far as collection goes, (per the usual) I will be around each day to collect and deliver items to the food cupboard. Each morning, as your students bring in items, you can set them outside your door. I will do a "sweep" of items at some point, after 9:00 a.m. I have attached a copy of the "event letter", (the same one that I delivered to each of your classrooms today) for your reference. It lists the "daily themes" throughout the week. Please remember to send home the letters with your students, at the end of the day. Thank you in advance for all of your support with this annual event!! Let's make it the BIGGEST and the BEST yet!!!!

We have had several people express interest in attending and are hoping to have a few more. Please RSVP to Deb Taylor if you can join us. ------------------------------------------------ RSU 12 would like to improve its communication efforts. We want to be sure that parents and community members know what is happening in our schools and that we are providing information in a way that works for them. In order for us to make improvements, we need your help. We would like to know what kinds of things you'd like to hear about and how we can best communicate. Please join me on Wednesday, October 10:00 from 5:00-6:00 pm at Windsor Elementary School for an informal discussion to provide some input about how we can improve our communication efforts. This will be an opportunity for you to share your ideas, thoughts about what you'd like to see, and positive communication experiences you've had that we can learn from. We will brainstorm topics that you want to hear about, how often you'd like to have communication, and what kinds of communication means (paper newsletters, website updates, mobile apps, etc.) you'd prefer. If you are able to join us, please RSVP to Deb Taylor at dtaylor@svrsu.org
