Somerset Elementary Summer Update
Week of July 21st
CLASS PLACEMENT FOR 2021-2022
THE START OF SCHOOL SEPTEMBER 1st and OPEN HOUSE
Somerset Elementary is planning an "Open House" to greet families and students on August 31st. At this time, we are not sure what the guidelines will be for guest access in the building. We are cautiously planning a 5:30-6:30pm event and ask that you "Save the Date" until further notice.
As the summer progresses, the Maine Department of Education will be updating guidelines for schools, and we will keep you informed of requirements as school gets ready to open.
PREPARING FOR SCHOOL.....SUPPLIES and CALENDAR
There are no class or teacher lists of supplies that need to be purchased ahead of time for students. Throughout the year, teachers may ask for volunteers or various items for special projects that you may want to help out with.
We provide each student with an individual pencil box and the tools and supplies they need. We do suggest that each student be prepared with the following:
- a backpack
- a water bottle
- a pair of sneakers
If you need assistance acquiring any of the above items, or would like to donate these items, please contact the school and leave a message at (207)938-4770

All students were able to collaborate, think critically, and solve problems while designing, creating, and testing models such as multi-level house structures, bridges, and water drainage systems. Kids were engaged, focused, and excited during these hands-on learning experiences provided by the .
