It will be exciting to see what the 5th graders choose to share to highlight their special contributions to our school and showcase all of their awesomeness!

Families of Incoming Grade 3 Students - Welcome to Wentworth Video

We are so excited to welcome you to Wentworth School! We have already met with each of the second grade teachers and heard about our wonderful new students, and we are very eager to get to know them as they begin the Wentworth phase.

In non-COVID times, our Assistant Principal Mr. Stoner and I would be meeting with you all in person for a Family Information Night. Though that cannot happen this year, we have created the next best thing! Please watch this Welcome to Wentworth Video and then join us on Thursday, May 27 from 6:30-7:30 PM.

NWEA and Cohort D Schedules

Later this month, all Wentworth students will take the NWEA, which is the state assessment selected by the Maine Department of Education. Tuesday, May 25 will be for Cohort A students and Thursday, May 27 for Cohort B students. Cohort C students will complete the assessment remotely.

Cohort D students will take the test on one of the above dates (based on when their full in person day is). For the other date, students come into the building following their usual schedule and will spend their day in a different space for SEL-specific activities and supervision. On your child's non-cohort day, a portion of their day in school will be with an allied arts teacher for these activities because their assigned teachers will be proctoring the assessment to the other cohort of students.
