Practice Assignments Available in Classroom

For students who have registered for VSS, practice assignments have been placed in your VSS Google Classroom.  These assignments are not worth any points, but it will give you a good idea about what sorts of things you'll need to do this summer.  It's a good idea to try a little bit of everything, that way if you have questions about anything you can ask before summer starts!

Summer Food Service Schedule at OTES

RSU34 will be providing meals again this summer, and one of the locations will be Old Town Elementary School.  Kids who are here for Virtual Summer School can certainly take advantage of the free meals if they wish.  Breakfast is served from 8:00-8:30am and lunch is served from 11:30-11:55am during the dates listed below.  Even though we don't open for VSS until 9:00, students who would like to get breakfast before 8:30 can hang out until the library opens up (and if we happen to be in early ourselves, we'll open up early for these students).  Below are the dates that breakfast and lunch will be served at OTES:

Tuesday-Thursday from July 12-August 4th.

Please note that some of these dates are NOT dates that align with VSS.  Virtual Summer School's schedule can be found on the bottom right of this blog.
