Superintendent's Corner


Greetings from Mrs. McLean - November 2018



Paul Tough’s book entitled Helping Children Succeed: What Works and Why (2016) was given out to every staff and school board member in RSU # 71 in order to articulate a main theme in our school district this year. Perhaps it shouldn’t need to be said; yet it does: our mission as educators and leaders is to help all children succeed. RSU # 71 Parents and Community Members are welcome to join district staff in the book study already underway at the central office from 5:30 - 6:30 pm on the following dates: December 13, 2018; January 10, 2019; and March 14, 2019.


Please call the central office (338-1960) or email me (mamclean@rsu71.org) if you would like to join us for pizza, salad and conversation. If you’d like to borrow a copy of the book or need free babysitting on any of those dates in order to attend, please let that be known.  If you can’t join us for these meetings, but would like to know how you could become involved in helping our school district in other ways, please let that be known, too!

The purposes of the book study is to sensitize our school communities to the hidden challenges and obstacles that a great many of our children (and thus their teachers) face. How can we as a school system realize the dream of enabling every child to become invested and successful in school and, later, in life? And what might ordinary citizens, ones invested in helping the precious resource that is our children, do to help?



Warm wishes for joy and inspiration this holiday season!
