National Public School Week 2021

To SU76 Parents, Guardians and Community Members, National Public Schools Week (February 22 – 26th), honors the United States’ 50.8 million students, 3.2 million teachers, millions of support staff, hundreds of thousands of specialists, and thousands of administrators working in U.S. Public Schools today. It is an opportunity to celebrate our nation’s, our state’s and School Union 76’s (SU76) Public Schools, which are made up of students, staff, parents and community members! The efforts made by all to have learning continue during the pandemic is truly a work of caring, kindness, determination and toughness. The Teamwork demonstrated over the last 12 months at the Brooklin School, Deer Isle Stonington Elementary School, Deer Isle-Stonington High School, Isle au Haut School and Sedgwick Elementary School has been inspiring to me and many others.

More than at any time as your Superintendent of Schools, over this last year I have felt extremely fortunate and honored to be working with each of SU 76’s Public Schools! Throughout the pandemic our Nation’s Public Schools, including our own, have found differing ways to help our young people learn, grow and achieve. I have seen first-hand and so believe strongly that each and every day we in SU 76 are
making Lemonade out of Lemons. Through positive efforts we are problem-solving so that our students can move forward and continue to learn, grow and achieve.

In honor of these efforts, our schools, students, staff and communities, I invite you to check out the following SU76 National Public Schools Week Video:

SU 76 Schools will continue to take steps forward in support of our students because we are working and caring for each other as a TEAM! Our progress should give all HOPE and optimism for the world of tomorrow!

Very truly yours,

Christian M. Elkington
