One grant will send six math teachers from all district schools to the NCTM Annual Conference in Boston this March. The other grant will allow the Mildred L. Day School to work with the Graves Library in Kennebunkport and the Kennebunk Free Library to offer good, literacy-based experiences to preschoolers from Arundel.

You can help the Education Foundation of the Kennebunks and Arundel earn up to $10,000 to support ALL the schools in RSU 21. On December 6th Weirs Motor Sales and Buick will be at Kennebunk High School from 9am to 4pm to make a donation for each person who takes a test drive. We’re looking for 500 people to drive a brand new Buick around the block so that we can raise $10,000. Can’t make it to KHS on the 6th? Go straight to Weirs Buick on Route One in Arundel on December 4th or 5th and tell them you’d like to take a test drive for the students. For more information or if you’d like to volunteer, please contact Jen Foy 207-632-0362. Hope to see you there!
