Welcome to SAU 41
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
The start of the school year has gone exceptionally well. Our administration, staff and students are quickly settling into a routine.
Principal’s Fowler, Molinari, Dobe, Thompson, Izbicki and Barnes welcomed new and returning students. The buildings were filled with song, games, laughter and a sense of pride as both staff and students prepare for a new year of learning. The Middle and High School staffs welcomed seventh and ninth graders to half day orientations. Students went through their schedules, practiced their locker combinations and started new friendships while reestablishing old ones. At our elementary and primary schools students were also welcomed by song and games as our teachers made all our safety procedures into fun adventures for our youngest learners. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank our custodial staff for all their efforts. Our buildings looked remarkable; all the room changes, movement of material and cleaning were completed. Many areas received a fresh coat of paint and all minor maintenance projects were addressed.
A new science lab is up and running at the high school, we increased our mulch on our playgrounds, seal coated our high school and middle school parking lots and completed tile replacement in both Brookline schools as outlined in our Capital Improvements Plan. The front entryway at RMMS has been upgraded (thank you to all our wonderful volunteers), the middle school upgraded its security system and HPS replaced exit ramps and stairways this summer. The kindergarten classrooms in Hollis had new sinks installed and the bridge to the SAU field was replaced. We have increased our wireless access points across the SAU, have purchased mobile computer labs and our new “learning commons” has been fully implemented at HBHS. Thank you to everyone who was involved in making these projects a reality.
In closing, allow me to once again take this opportunity to thank all of you for entrusting us with your children. I look forward to meeting more students, families and community members as we move through the school year.

SAU 41 Strategic Plan
Given the tremendous amount of input received, the Steering Committee feels that the mission, vision, goals, and strategies that make up the Strategic Plan reflect the educational priorities of Hollis and Brookline’s elected officials, School Board members, parents, staff, and students. At each stage of the Plan’s development, the Steering Committee repeatedly reached out to the public to be sure that what the communities wanted is embodied in the Strategic Plan seen in the following pages. The Steering Committee is appreciative of leadership of the New England School Development Council in working with us in this process.
