Monday, Aug. 29, there will be a school-wide open house at Searsport Elementary School from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Come meet your teacher, see your classroom, tour the school and meet the staff! There will also be several community organizations on site like Searsport Recreation, Boy and Girl Scouts, Carver Memorial Library and more. Come and learn about the children’s programing these organizations offer!
