Kennebunkport Consolidated School ~ Tel-u-Gram  for Friday, March 10th, 2023

Dear KCS Families, 

If you’ve been into KCS this week, you may have noticed a change in the office. Stephanie Redmond is our new administrative assistant running the main office. So, if you need to contact the main office about anything, please reach out to Stephanie Redmond at Also, stop by to say hi and give her a warm KCS welcome! Please, continue using the KCS Absence Reporting Form to report student absences. Lastly, I’d like to thank Mary Emmons for helping us out the past few weeks. 

Next week, the Scholastic Book Fair returns to KCS after a three year hiatus! Kennebunkport Consolidated School Scholastic Book Fair: March 13-17, 2023! Students and staff will be able to stop into the Library and purchase a variety of their favorite books to take home forever. This year, your children can bring cash to spend, or use Book Fair eWallet. It's okay to just browse, too. Learn more at Parents and caregivers -- On Wednesday, March 15th, we're staying open after 2:45 dismissal until 4 pm. Stop into the KCS Scholastic Book Fair after school to shop as a family! Ms. Welles needs approved volunteers to help the fair go smoothly! If you're interested in helping out, please check out the Sign Up Genius for needs. Priority slots to fill are: Monday 9:15-11:40 am & 1:00-2:35 pm and Friday 9:15-10:50 am & 12:05-12:35 pm. Although all help is much appreciated!

HELP NEEDED - Additional SUPERVISION at Play Practice:

Additional volunteers are needed at play rehearsals, particularly the "all cast" rehearsals. We are thrilled that so many students are participating in the play, but we could use additional adult supervision to make rehearsals run smoothly. Any amount of help you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Lastly, you do NOT have to fill out the school volunteer form to help out with the play, so if you haven't done that yet don't let that deter you from signing up.  Link to sign up genius:


Also, a friendly reminder, for play practice, please use the door near the music room / Gymnasium entrance instead of coming through the main school entrance. There isn’t always someone available in the office after hours to let people in and out of the building.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to play director Emily Gannon at


Community Resources

In a moment of crisis, you do not have to be alone. Sometimes you need a conversation--not an internet search.


Dial 2-1-1 for the Maine Hotline. This service can help with issues like acute crisis, financial assistance, mental health, addiction treatment, health care, or heating and utilities assistance. Additionally, the national Suicide Hotline is 9-8-8. 


Here is a list of more resources available to everyone throughout our district and beyond.
