What is Set for Success?
We have partnered with Solar Star Masonic Lodge and Back to School in Bath to host Back to School: Set for Success, an event that will provide a new backpack and all teacher required school supplies to every student in RSU 1, regardless of need. That's about 2000 students! This event will ensure that all of our students begin the school year on a level playing field, ready for a successful year of learning.
This is more than just giving out school supplies. It’s a way to make sure every student is starting off on a level playing field and that no one falls through the cracks.
It’s about students and families getting to know the community organizations who provide a variety of supports.
It’s about strengthening relationships through face-to-face connections in a fun, celebratory way.
It’s passionately caring for each and every child in our community.
Our goal is to be a safety net for ALL families, to ensure the mental wellness of ALL youth, and ultimately, end suicide.
