BUSINESS OF READING: NOVEMBER 17-21
All reading times are from 8:30-9:00 AM.
Calling all readers!  The Business of Reading Festival, a much anticipated community celebration of reading, will be held November 17-21 at the Conners Emerson School.  Over one hundred readers are needed to ensure the success of the Festival. Participation requires only a half hour of your time and most guest readers enjoy the experience as much as the students.  Volunteers are assigned to a specific classroom to explain who reading is important to their work and to share a favorite book or passage with the students.  The organizing committee hopes that people from all walks of life will consider volunteering their time to this worthy event.  If you are interested in sparking a child’s interest in reading or helping to make a connection between reading and your work, please join us the week of November 17.  For more information or to register, please contact Amanda Dyer (adyer@mdirss.org, 299-4467 x1013) or Siobhan Ryan (sryan@mdirss.org, 288-4467 x 1040).

With Sincere Gratitude, 
the Conners Emerson School students and staff thank Dave Gallup 
for his exceptional contribution to the Conners Emerson School Lego Robotics Program.

  Not only is he responsible for having started the competitive FLL program 
(when he moved to Bar Harbor with his two sons), 
he has continued to serve as an extraordinary mentor for seven years,
from 2008 - 2014, 
even after his boys moved on to high school. 

For the past three years, the "Pickles" team has placed first in Maine
and at or near the top globally.

Dave, Thank YOU!! 
Your patience, guidance, and expertise will be irreplaceable.

The Mount Desert Island Elementary Schools now have their own ebook collection through Overdrive.  Perhaps you already use Overdrive through Jesup or another area library?   Our collection is geared toward students in grades 4-8 and is not connected with the state collection.  However, the platform works the same!

If you want to use Overdrive, please contact Ms. Ryan for more information.

Solar Car Race Results

posted May 21, 2014, 5:37 AM by Sarah Winne

Tuesday, 43 students (13 cars)  participated in the annual solar car race.  Unfortunately, due to the weather,  the students had to race their cars with battery packs, which somewhat diminishes the Maine Energy Education Program (MEEP) goal of helping students to experience the link between energy use and environmental consequences, but nevertheless the students had lots of fun.  This also was a great way to meet the Next Generation Science Standards in Engineering:
1. Defining problems
2. Developing and using models 
3. Planning and carrying out investigations 


The race determined the top five fastest cars, all invited to attend the State Competition. Congratulations to all students who participated with an extra high five to our finalists:
  • The Rainbow Rod (Lucas, Oliver, & Tyler)
  • Bobby Joe McFlinch (Nathan, Stephen, & Tristan)
  • Dayz (Zachary, Yarrow, Aidan, & Dominic)
  • Ashtuiz (Tim, Luiz & Ashton)
  • 100% Recyclable (Gloria & Andrea)
The Maine State Finals will be Saturday, June 7 at the Owls Head Transportation Museum near Rockland, rain or shine! That day, the cars will be judged on speed, technical merit, craftsmanship, innovation, most creative use of recycled materials, and kids' choice.

Thanks to Peter Zack from MEEP who ran our race for us and also did some really neat hands-on energy activities with grade 4 students. Also many thanks to Mr. GR and Mr. Boardman for overseeing the construction of the cars, and to our parent volunteers:  Zhong-wei Zhang, Beth Ingebritson, Tony Uliano, Margaret Jeffery, Peter Jeffery, and Robert Parker (and any others I've left out)! We couldn't run this without you!
