posted Dec 6, 2019, 7:34 AM by Marcia Brown

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Guardians,


Can you believe we are into the month of December already? This means that after Christmas break we will begin our 3rd session of the Rising Tide after school program. Time flies when you are having fun! Are there any volunteers who would like to lead a group this time around? We are looking for activities Monday-Thursday. 

The third session begins on Monday, January 13th, and will go through February 14th. If you are interested in leading an activity (slime lab, music, legos, open gym,etc.), please call Sarah Vail or Tanya Robinson at school 207-338-3430, or you can reach them by email, svail@drinkwaterschool.org, and trobinson@drinkwaterschool.org by Wednesday, Dec. 11th.

Can’t help now, but have ideas for later? Consider volunteering for one of our other sessions being held on the following dates:

March 2 through April 10

May 4 through June 5.



Thank you

Edna Drinkwater Staff

Smoke Detectors

Hi Northport Parents. We had our Fire Safety Day last week with our wonderful Northport Fire Department. They generously donated Smoke alarms for our families who do not have working smoke detectors. If you are in need of one, please call the main office, 338-3430 and we can give your child one or you can stop in to pick one up. This is first come, first serve. We hope you are all safe and have an escape plan just in case. If you do not, ask your child how to set one up.
