Superintendent's Welcome!

Greetings From RSU No. 24,
 
It is hard to believe another school year is in the books!  Our students and staff were definitely ready for the end of the school year.  We will now begin the process of getting ready for the next school year.  For those planning ahead, the first day of school is scheduled for Thursday, August 29th.  Until then, I wish our students and staff a relaxing summer.
 
We do have a number of people retiring from the RSU who have served the students and the district for many years.  These people have made the ultimate long-term commitment to our district and deserve our debt of gratitude.  I would like to recognize the following individuals for their years of service:
 
Nancy Cramer - Teacher @ Cave Hill/Sumner Middle School- 10 years
Cathy Johnson - Adult Education - 12 years
Glenn Grant - Transportation - 15 years
Wayne Newenham - Maintenance @ Sumner - 21 years
Joe Naumann - Maintenance @ Peninsula - 22 years
Bonnie Naumann - Maintenance @ Peninsula - 24 years
Tink Davis - Maintenance @ Cave Hill - 26 years
John Wells - Teacher @ Sumner - 44 years (John will be returning)
Faye Torrey - Kitchen @ Peninsula - 50 years ****WOW***
 
We wish each one of these individuals the best in their retirement.
 
I am happy to pass along that the RSU #24 Budget Referendum was successful, with a vote of 885 to 420.  Here is the breakdown by town:
