Our Mission

The mission of The Stillwater School is to provide a safe and supportive holistic environment where teaching and learning are an interactive process.

We nurture all aspects of a child’s development and reinforce a sense of community within the classroom.  

We view each student as an individual and provide a curriculum that allows them to reach their maximum potential.

We strive to educate the whole child by encouraging a love of learning, social responsibility and independent thinking within an atmosphere that encourages creativity and confidence.

COVID-19

The Stillwater School is reopening on September 8, 2020 for the start of a new school year! 

Due to COVID-19 we were forced to close for the remainder of the school year in March of 2020. This decision was not taken lightly. The closure was not mandated by the state, but we felt it was in the best interest of our students, staff, families, and the community at large. The last 6 months have been very hard for us and we are sure all of you have had similar experiences.

We have been taking time to review and update our policies and procedures. There will be recognizable changes to the school this year. All of these changes have been made in consultation with the Maine CDC, our licensing agent with Maine DHHS licensing division, and our lovely new Healthcare Consultant Ludmila Svoboda, RN BSN MA OCN. Ludmila is a very experienced healthcare provider and also a Stillwater parent, so we are excited to have her join us in our efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Student and staff safety has always been and always will be our top priority. While we can never guarantee a sterile environment, we will be rigidly adhering to these protocols in the interest of bringing the risk of COVID transmission down as much as humanly possible. 

We have prepared an outline of some of the changes for parents to review. Please keep in mind this is going to be a working document that may change as the school year progresses. We will be closely following updates from the Maine CDC and will adjust our protocols as needed.

You can view and download these protocols here.

Everyone is very excited and we are sure it will be a great production! The performance will be at 1:30 on May 22nd, 2020 at the Nasson Little Theater, 457 Main Street in Springvale. Tickets are free, but you will need a ticket for entry. For directions or more information ask Amie.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, James and the Giant Peach, The Adventures of Mouse Deer: an Indonesian Folk Tale and Who's in Rabbit's House: A Masai Tale.

All shows were great successes. It has been inspiring to see the school children working together as a team towards a common goal with such great results. Those that performed and attended were rewarded!
