Hello Calais Community!

It was nice to see so many faces at our special town meeting last Saturday. No matter the reason for the gathering, so many of us gathered together here makes the school feel like the heart of our community. Opening our building for town meeting is an easy way to serve our community. I also think there are a number of folks within our community who are looking for ways to give back and connect with our school. We are always looking for volunteers in our library and I would love community members to consider becoming a substitute. Working with kids in a variety of capacities can be really rewarding, a good experience for our students to form new working relationships with safe adults, and is a way to bring folks in to our school from our community. If you’re interested in volunteering or applying to be work as a substitute, please check in with Sue Cioffi in our office for details on paperwork and the steps involved.  You can contact Sue at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

              Remember that our K-6 hike is scheduled for next Friday, 10/9. Please keep your fingers crossed that the weather will allow us to keep this annual tradition, as it is the one date we have planned!
