Welcome to SAU 41
The start of the school year has gone exceptionally well. Our administration, staff and students are quickly settling into a routine.
Principals Fowler, Perry, Dobe, Thompson and Barnes joined administrator Izbicki in welcoming new and returning students. The buildings were filled with song, games, laughter and a sense of pride as both staff and students prepare for a new year of learning. The Middle and High School staffs welcomed seventh and ninth graders to half day orientations. Students went through their schedules, practiced their locker combinations and started new friendships while reestablishing old ones. At our elementary and primary schools students were welcomed by song and games as our teachers made all our safety procedures into fun adventures for our youngest learners. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank our custodial staff for all their efforts. Our buildings looked remarkable; all the room changes, movement of material and cleaning were completed. Many areas received a fresh coat of paint and all minor maintenance projects were addressed.
As some of you may recall, we had an ambitious schedule with regard to our New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) accreditation projects. I am proud to report that we met our timeline and did so while staying on budget. Our robotics room was moved to the middle school; a special thank you to Mrs. Hay and her team who assisted with reorganizing the room. Our new science room is up and running, our computer rooms have been wired and are in use, our bandwidth has been doubled, we have purchased a mobile computer lab for in class use, our new cafeteria tables are being utilized and the new exit doors in the café are installed. Thank you to everyone who was involved in making these changes become a reality. We will be updating NEASC in September as we continue to prepare for our reaccreditation visit next March.

SAU 41 Strategic Plan
Given the tremendous amount of input received, the Steering Committee feels that the mission, vision, goals, and strategies that make up the Strategic Plan reflect the educational priorities of Hollis and Brookline’s elected officials, School Board members, parents, staff, and students. At each stage of the Plan’s development, the Steering Committee repeatedly reached out to the public to be sure that what the communities wanted is embodied in the Strategic Plan seen in the following pages. The Steering Committee is appreciative of leadership of the New England School Development Council in working with us in this process.
