School plans community meeting


BUCKFIELD — Parents, students, teachers and citizens who would like to collaborate in the work of building and maintaining a world-class educational system for students in Buckfield, Hartford and Sumner, are invited to attend the first annual parent and community involvement planning night at Buckfield Junior-Senior High School.

The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 17, in the school cafeteria.

The high school was recently designated a Title I school based on community resources. As such, the school is entitled to a tremendous amount of financial support specifically designed to improve student achievement. However, the students and staff cannot do this job without the support of their families and the community-at-large.

During the two-hour session, participants will interact and collaborate with teachers in an effort to create new opportunities for parent and community involvement in life of the school. They will also have an opportunity to learn about the use of technology to support student learning and Internet safety. They will also learn about the basics of the Title I program, its requirements and advantages.

A light meal will be served from 5:30 to 6 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. An RSVP would be appreciated, but is not absolutely necessary to attend. To respond, call the school at 336-2151 by Tuesday, March 9.
