Wiscasset Elementary School families and friends, save the date: Sunday, Aug. 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. is a celebration! A free back-to-school event at WES on Federal Street.
Feed Our Scholars’ Set For Success is gathering the teacher-requested school supplies for all Pre-K to fifth grade students to help them be ready for a great start for the new school year. This event is open, as well, for those home-schooled students who would be eligible to attend WES.
Children will shop for their particular classroom needs, and be given a snappy red backpack complete with the school’s wolf paw insignia to hold all those supplies. They will be able to show their school spirit all year long as they use their packs.
Set For Success is busy nailing down other participants to provide a fun, helpful event. Wiscasset’s fire department is planning to be there, barring emergencies, for a mini touch-a-truck event. The police department plans to have a presence, as well. The Healthy Lincoln County lunch truck will provide meals. People will be able to have their sight measured which they can use to take to their optometrist of choice. St. Philip’s Bargain Basement will offer a free shopping event. And these are just some of the possibilities of the day.
