AOS 93, Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust Partner For Summer School September 7, 2023 at 10:12 am Article by Dylan Burmeister https://lcnme.com/currentnews/aos-93-coastal-rivers-conservation-trust-partner-for-summer-school/ Prior to school kicking off for the year, AOS 93 and Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust partnered to create a new, hands-on opportunity for local students enrolled in summer school. For four Fridays, students took all-day field trips to local parks and trails, where they experienced “a full day of outdoor education and nature programming,” said Sarah Gladu, Coastal Rivers’ director of education and citizen science. During the series, students visited the Library Park Preserve and Plummer Point in South Bristol, Pemaquid Beach, and the Bristol Recreation Trail, located at Bristol Consolidated School. Buses picked up students and brought them to the park or preserve where they would be spending the day.
It's a great morning to start our first bus run of the 2023-2024 school year!

Katie Hurley, renowned expert in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and Development, will speak at Lincoln Theater on June 5 at 6:30 pm. Thanks to sponsorship by Lincoln Academy, Lincoln Health, Great Salt Bay Community School PTO, Hearty Roots, and the Central Lincoln County YMCA, the event is free and open to the public. While attendance is free, pre-registration is encouraged, since the event is expected to fill up. Registration is available through the Lincoln Theater website under ‘Talks.’ Dr. Hurley’s June 5 talk will focus on Adolescents and Technology, and how parents, social workers, and teachers can help mediate the impact of technology and social media use on adolescent mental health. She will address topics including cyberbullying and self-esteem issues that can be triggered or intensified by frequent social media use as well as depression and anxiety. The talk will address some of the pros and cons of technology use among teens, including proactive strategies to curb usage, and offer strategies to help teens learn to use social media for good.
Dear GSB School Community Member: The Great Salt Bay school board is working with staff and community members to create a Strategic Plan for our school. You are invited to share your voice in this process by filling out this short online survey. Several of the questions on this survey are similar to ones used in the 2019 GSB strategic planning process that was interrupted by the pandemic, and the strategic planning committee looks forward to comparing responses. In addition to this survey, there will be a public form on Wednesday, May 24th, 6pm at GSB for members of the school committee to share their input on the future of Great Salt Bay. The deadline to complete this survey is May 31, 2023. The survey can be access at this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvbEKqkY4ZnluqBj8YA-0b_SqNJr2tE0o0J3Ul9wADQC6cUg/viewform Thank you for participating!

The Strategic Planning Committee of the Great Salt Bay School Board is hosting a public forum Wednesday, February 15th at 6PM. To accommodate flexible participation, this forum will be held remotely over Zoom. All community members are encouraged to participate in this forum, as input from everyone is critical to our ongoing effort. Questions to consider ahead of time… What services, curriculum, and programs should our school offer? What is our school doing really well, and what can be improved? What should we be planning for in the future? What would the ideal school campus look like? We anticipate another forum will be scheduled in the spring where the first phase plan will be shared, and we'll have another opportunity for community input into the process. Watch for an updated survey to be sent out as well in the coming weeks, which refreshes data collected in 2019.

Mr. Coleman's students made tracking lanyards, and then tested out their newly learned tracking skills. They also learned that even if you can't identify what animal made a track, the size, distance between tracks, direction of tracks, and surrounding evidence can tell a fascinating story about how animals survive during a cold Maine winter.
