From the Superintendent
- One campus is nice, but not the right fit for a growing district
- Our district’s history and future enrollment trends indicate MSAD #51 is a four-facility district
- We need the right number of facilities that can flex for the ups and downs of enrollment over time
- This is an investment and solution for the long tem.
- Projected enrollment
- Space Study
- Developmental needs of students
- Curricular goals
- Sustainability of one campus model
- Long-term investment
- School size
- Fiscal responsibility
- Efficient use of space
- Public Pre-K status and private partnerships
- Balance of district facilities between the towns
Last week, a group of MIW staff members visited the proposed new primary school site at the base of Walnut Hill in North Yarmouth.

Our Community Partners are strong supporters of various areas of the school. Without them, our students would not have many of the wonderful opportunities and experiences that they receive.

Give to Greely PTO's Parent Power Appeal
The Greely PTO Parent Power Appeal is our biggest and most important fundraiser! It is a quick and easy way to make a one-time contribution that works for your family. In 2021, we raised over $13,000 thanks to the generosity of MIW and GMS families! 100% of your tax-deductible donation helps provide K-8 teacher’s enrichment opportunities (such as classroom supplies, playground equipment, guest speakers, field trips, special events and more) for their students that help expand our kids' learning far beyond their classroom walls. No amount is too small. Please help us reach our goal of $13,000! More information can be found here or attached.
