Rowe Introduction

Welcome to the Amanda C. Rowe School. We are located in the south west corner of Portland, Maine. We currently have nearly four hundred and twenty five students in grades pre-kindergarten through five. We are excited to be planning the design of a new Hall School scheduled to open for the 2018-2019 school year. We hope that you will use our web site as a tool to learn more about the wonderful work that we are doing with students. Our website also provides helpful calendar information identifying important activities and events each month. You will also find our school newsletters and information about current events happening within the building. We look forward to working with you and your children as we grow and learn together.

B-I-N-G-O! Please join the Rowe community for a fun night of family bingo next Friday, October 12th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Message from Dawn and Sarah

Hello Amanda C. Rowe community! School is underway and thankfully the weather has cooled off. We seem to be getting our feet under ourselves in terms of procedures and routines. We know there are many questions in the community about multiage and combined classrooms, in addition to ongoing questions about project based learning. As we continue to deepen our own understanding of our collaborative practices, we are excited share them with you. One of our teachers was commenting this week about how enriching it was to have two teachers teaming to plan and deliver instruction to students. We have found many benefits of team teaching already and also enjoy the flexibility that the removable walls provide us. Thank you for joining us on this journey of growth and learning this year.

The Rowe-d to Success Update

In the process of change over to our new name, Amanda C. Rowe, we also transition our Hall Ways Expectations to a new name, The Rowe-d to Success. These are our positively stated school rules and are: I choose kindness, I am ready to learn, I keep trying, and I am a collaborative problem solver. All learners at Rowe will have many opportunities to practice and apply these expectations in many contexts as we teach the rules in all areas of the building to start the school year. Please feel free to use this language at home with your learner as well!
