Update from Superintendent Porter - October 20, 2023

One of the ways schools build positive culture and facilitate belonging for all students and staff is through common and shared experiences beyond the classroom, an important component of the district's strategic priority of Wellness. This Fall, all of our schools have emphasized engaging and interactive school-wide activities to further connect all members of our school community. Below are examples of some recent culture-building experiences:

GHS Homecoming Dance

Spirit Days: Dress-Alike Days @ GHS (above) and GMS (below)


GMS “Barbie & Ken” Day

Athletics: Girls X-Country won Western Maine Class B title

Community service: "Socktober" campaign at GMS 4-5 for families that are unhoused
