Windsor teacher Mike Praschak and Palermo Learning Commons facilitator Diane Carrillo show the RSU 12 school board how they are using 3D printers with students. Thanks in large part to a generous donation from the Perloff Family Foundation, each of our schools have 3-D printers to support student learning and creativity!
Last Thursday night, the RSU 12 School Board unanimously voted to reaffirm its commitment to create learning environments that support our beliefs about learning: That we learn in different ways and in different time frames; that success breeds success and influences esteem, attitudes, and motivation; and that mistakes are inherent in learning.
Chelsea student Paige Clark and nutrition staff member Stacy Boudreau work together to prepare for the 2019 Maine Farm to School Cook-Off. The competition takes place March 22 at RSU 1's Career and Technical Center in Bath. A school nutrition team member and student pair from each participating district compete to prepare one breakfast and one lunch meal. Each meal must be planned with two local ingredients that are grown, raised, caught or manufactured in Maine as well as one USDA food. Meals will be evaluated based on presentation, taste, creativity and feasibility to be used in a school nutrition program.

5th Grade Windsor teacher, Kim St. Onge, shared evidence of learning with the RSU 12 school board at their meeting last Thursday. Kim explained how she is integrating habits of mind, complex reasoning, and content as she designs learning experiences for her students. She showed examples of the ways in which her students are giving and receiving feedback and assessing their progress towards their learning goals. This was a great example of learners being supported to own their own learning! Thank you to Kim and to all of RSU 12's educators who work to support our students as they learn and grow!

The Maine Department of Education (MDOE) has created a video to help parents better understand their students' individual score reports on the State assessment.
