  • VCS Childcare program wins award!


    Let’s Go! would like to thank you for participating in our 2015-16 program year! Together we are working hard to support healthy behaviors in the places where children learn, play and grow! 

    Sites are recognized at the Bronze-level when they have implemented Let’s Go!’s five priority strategies that support healthy eating and active living. Sites are recognized at the Silver-level when they also have communicated their efforts with families and at the Gold-level when they also have strong policies to support and sustain the strategies being implemented.

    It is the nature of this work for sites to sometimes move in and out of a recognition level– not only is this acceptable, it is also expected! Celebrate your ongoing commitment to create change and keep striving for those small successes!

    We are pleased to announce that the following sites have been recognized in 2015-16:


    Site Name

    Recognition Level


    Vassalboro Before/After School Program



    Winslow Before/After School Program



    Again, thank you for participating in Let’s Go!. We appreciate all you do to help create healthy environments!

    Best regards,

    The Let’s Go! Team

  • Laptops Replacing iPads at VCS
    Changes are coming this summer to the State of Maine MLTI program that provides devices for 7th and 8th grade students.  The Department of Education decided to replace their devices a year early, and offer schools the choice of iPads or laptops for the next cycle of the MLTI
    program.  Our school chose laptops for students next year, so students will be receiving 11 inch MacBook Airs.  Unfortunately, our schools are not being given the option to purchase the current MLTI devices.  You can find more information on the MLTI program at

  • 7th Graders go to College!
    The seventh graders went to college today! The Colby College neurology department hosted us to educate us on Brain Awareness. The topics discussed today were brain anatomy, brain development, concussions, and meditation. Along with neurology education, the college also invited us to spend time in their Museum of Art and gave us a guided tour of the campus - allowing us a peek into life as a college student. It was an enlightening day where we learned more about our brains, our future and ate some fantastic food!
