Crisp fall mornings, pumpkin coffee, apple crisp, it’s what we have all been waiting for, right?  Students at ITS are already partaking in the traditional fall activities. Our kindergarten class, and our pre-k class have all been apple picking, and there are pumpkin patch visits scheduled for October 6 for kindergarten and 1st grade, and October 10 for day care and pre-k.

Mrs. Cox’s 8th grade science class recently learned how to make pickles. Little did they know that through the canning process, they would learn science and math in the process! They also learned how to be responsible for a specific task and follow it through. Watch for raffle tickets for these delicious pickles, as 8th graders raffle pickles to raise funds for their 8th grade trip at the end of the year.

It has been necessary to change some dates for Teacher In-service days on our school calendar.

October 11th, and 28th are now Staff In-service days. No School for students. To make up for these changes, there now WILL be school on October 7, December 9, and March 17 for students. Please see the calendar for these changes at our web site,

On October 11, staff will travel to UMM- Machias for the Harvest of Ideas workshops. This is training at its best where Washington County educators can choose workshops to attend from a variety of topics offered, including Proficiency Based education (PBE).


That’s all the news for this week. Until next week, take care of yourself and never stop learning!
