Principal’s Report

Tara B. Morin

“Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.” 

~Robert Lewis Stevenson 

Day one for me was workshop day one, the day that I not only got to see all the RSU #74 staff, but spend quality time with my Carrabec Community School staff. Candy and Jenah showcased medical information and reminded staff of useful procedures. I introduced myself in a survey to the staff and asked each of them to complete one. I can’t wait to see the results and share what I can with you. 

I want to personally thank the board and community for the addition of a Dean of Students, and for hiring Mr. Bruce Dostie. Peter, Ann, Lisa, Bruce, and I formulated a plan and schedule for the Dean of Students work. The support is extremely helpful.  

Open House will be September 20th , 5:30-6:30pm. We have the Scholastic Book Fair, Girl Scouts, the PTO coming to share information that night. We also have Darling’s Ice Cream Truck (donations) to pass out treats. We have Candy to thank for her organization of that one (many more)!  I wonder about having the open house before school starts in the years to come? 

Our First Day of School Assemblies were a hit!  We were able to have three grade level assemblies, K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. I had the attention of all students and staff as I described my expectations, rules, and consequences for this year so everyone feels safe, significant, and engaged in teaching and learning. Our first fire drill happened in the rain and the CCS Cobras nailed it!
