21st Century Program
 
Welcome to the 21st Century After School Program. We are very excited about our very first day in the new 2013 - 2014 school year!
  
Our every day schedule this year is as follows:
  
2:35 - 2:40 - kids arrive to the cafeteria or gym
3:00 - 4.25 - activities including: supervised homework time, math and literacy enrichment, fitness and health related activities, art and crafts, group games etc.
4.30 - kids leave school (on buses, being picked up or walk home)
 
Everybody will have a chance to get help with their homework every day.
THE KIDS NEED TO REPORT THAT THEY HAVE HOMEWORK TO THE ASSIGNED
STAFF MEMBER EACH DAY.
 
Besides academic activities we are going to play a lot of games, spend time outside and in the gym, make crafts and cook healthy snacks.
TO BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL OF THE ACTIVITIES THE KIDS HAVE TO WEAR SNEAKERS AND SOCKS!
 
In addition to our regular schedule we are planning on going on some field trips and
attending special projects.

Welcome! I am honored and delighted to introduce myself as the new principal of David J. Lyon Washburn District Elementary School. I am originally from Ashland, where I taught 4th Grade for six years. Last year I had the pleasure of teaching 4th Grade at Blue Hill Consolidated School. I earned a BS in Elementary Education from the University of Maine at Presque Isle and a MS in Educational Leadership from the University of New England.  I am pleased to be returning to the county and am very excited to start a new school year. I look forward to working with our dedicated team to offer the same outstanding level of education that Washburn Elementary has always provided.  I truly believe that the cornerstone of a successful school is collaboration and communication among administrators, staff, students, parents and community members. Please feel free to stop in and say hello. I look forward to a successful school year!

Own Your Space : A free download in pdf version of a book that is "a collaborative project to provide free security learning to teens and families online, made available under the Creative Commons Licensing, and made possible by the support of individual and corporate sponsors. Every day, millions of American school children log on or log in and make decisions that can compromise their safety, security, and privacy. We’ve all heard the horror stories of stolen identities, cyber stalking, and perverts on the Internet. Kids need to know how to stay safe online and how to use the Internet in ways that won’t jeopardize their privacy or damage their reputations for years to come."

Our district website has always had a link to Common Sense Media which "is dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.  We exist because our nation's children spend more time with media and digital activities than they do with their families or in school, which profoundly impacts their social, emotional, and physical development . As a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, we provide trustworthy information and tools, as well as an independent forum, so that families can have a choice and a voice about the media they consume."  

Parents, sign up at the site to receive information, reviews, and advice that will help you to talk with your children about our digital world.
