Current News

Focused on Good Character

As part of the school’s character education program, Rachel's Challenge, Nassakeag Elementary School students and staff have once again pledged to cause a chain reaction of kindness. Individuals documented their joint effort to create an inclusive environment and promote compassion for others by signing a large banner displayed in the main hallway of the school.

Awareness for the yearlong initiative kicked off during an interactive assembly called “Make a Good Choice,” led by musical storyteller Lou Del Bianco. During the event, Mr. Del Bianco took the audience on an exciting journey through his childhood, sharing the daily joys, dreams and missteps he encountered along the way. Students had the chance to consider what types of choices they would make if they were in his shoes and reflected how those choices would affect their own lives.

National Change Makers

As the nation paused to honor the 14th anniversary of 9/11, Nassakeag Elementary School fifth-graders in Adele Gibbons took the 9/11 Good Deed Pledge.

After watching an informational piece about the hope that was born out of the tragedies – namely in the children who were born that day – the class embraced the notion that they each have the power to make a positive difference in the world. Each student then documented how he or she would help effect change through a written pledge, which was displayed to share with the school community.
