These teachers will also be available for drop-in conversations in the Art Room on Thursday evening and in their respective classrooms on Friday until noon.




Spare Clothes Stash at School


It is time to update and restock your student’s supply of spare clothes stored at school.  Your child’s “stash” may be empty or have items that are too small or out of season. Early spring in Maine means wet conditions.  A change of clothes in your child’s cubby/locker are 100% necessary in all grade levels, K-4.  Thank you!




Spring Kindergarten Registration


Camden-Rockport Elementary School is pleased to welcome students, who reside in Camden or Rockport, to register for Kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year. Your child must be 5 years old on or before October 15, 2020. Deadline to register for Spring Registration is April 30th.


Parents are asked to contact Brenda Fournier, Registrar, in the Main Office to start the registration process by calling 236-7809 or emailing


Please note: There will be no school for single grade Kindergarteners, on May 4 & 5, to allow for Spring Kindergarten Screening.  Multiage Kindergarten students WILL have school on those days.





Upcoming MEA Assessment for 3rd & 4th Grade

It’s that time of the year when our students and staff are gearing up for the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA). 4th Grade will be taking the MEAs during the week of March 16.  3rd Grade will be taking the MEAs during the week of March 23.
