What is GEAR UP? Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs

Syntiro of Maine is collaborating with the University of Maine at Farmington and other partners to enhance and support a college-going culture in Maine through a federal grant called GEAR UP Maine.

The RSU 24 GU Mission:
“It is our mission to raise academic proficiencies, provide support for remediation, open students’ eyes to experiences beyond middle and high school, and engage them in a culture of increased creativity and innovation. Through leadership development and exposure to technology, the GEAR UP team believes that RSU 24 GU students will have a strong foundation of 21st century thinking skills, and be more prepared for a lifetime of success.”

Show All

Principal's Corner

The 2015 - 2016 school year is here! Our staff and students are already working hard!

Our theme for this year is Teamwork and Community! We introduced this theme through our Pride Days with our students. It is also the theme for our professional time on Fridays with the staff. We will also carry this theme through out Pam Harmon Arts Festival on May 26th. We are looking for presenters.

Our class officers make up our Student Voice Group! They contribute to all the school pride and other activities in the school. This year we have added a Student Voice Blog on this Website which is anonymous.

Our Parent Group, Sumner Parent Partnership works on these same ideals. Sumner Parent Partnership meets on the first Wednesday of the month. All parents are welcome. This is an opportunity to get involved in the school. Parents can ask questions, share thoughts, or just talk about happenings in school.

Our hope is that this website will be a great resource for communication for parents and community. Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. Two way communication is critical to making our team a great one for our students!

For any other questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at school: 422- 3510 or email:mderaps@rsu24.org I speak for the entire staff at Sumner, when I say how much we appreciate our school and students! Go tigers!!
