SUMMER READING ASSIGNMENT:
Baxter students need to choose one book from our Summer Reading list. While reading this summer, we expect our students to participate in online book discussions by using Google Classroom. In addition, the entire school will participate in book discussions when we regroup in the Fall. You can find the list of books and directions using Google Classroom HERE.
Parents, please choose a book to read as well (maybe even the same book your son or daughter is reading), so you can also participate in our September book talks.
Please email me with any questions, concerns, or book suggestions. I will be working with the ninth graders throughout the year. I look forward to getting to know you all soon.
Let me know how I can help,

"If, as Gallup research contends, entrepreneurship is basically about optimism, and if, as I believe, [Baxter Academy's] Flex Friday is basically about entrepreneurship, then expanding this form of education will go a long way toward addressing Maine’s economic woes."
