As we begin another school year, we look forward to you being a part of our Saco School Department Public School community and hope you become involved in our schools and events. We especially welcome new families into our school community as you become engaged in our students' education, building and district events, including Thornton Academy. We are fortunate to have a school district in which students, staff, families and the community work together to support our mission: "All students must have access to high quality teaching and rigorous learning opportunities. To prepare for a global society, our students’ skill sets must include effective communication, critical thinking, creativity, and resilience.”
This year, as every year, we commit ourselves to providing the very best educational experience possible. We will continue to be shaped by our new strategic goals from our Strategic Plan; Educator Growth (Professional Growth and Evaluation Handbook), Curriculum and Instruction, and Social Climate and Culture. Our focus is on continuous instructional excellence and student achievement, combined with the ongoing improvement of district operations and communication. We will update you often through our Principal Newsletters, Superintendent's message and website communications, along with school and community meetings.
