Welcome to Lisbon High School

Dear Lisbon High School Students, Parents, and Guardians,

 We are very excited to start the 2019-2020 school year!  I am enthusiastic to continue within this role as your principal at Lisbon High School.  The high school experience can create anxiety, enthusiasm, and a flow of emotions.  Whether you are a returning student or coming in new as a freshman, high school can offer many opportunities that you can learn and grow from.  We do not only focus on the academic skill sets we expect of our students, but also social skill development that will support you in becoming productive and compassionate individuals in years to come.  Being involved in our school community will support your individual growth.  Lisbon High School has a lot of great offerings, from clubs and activities, to sports and academically challenging curriculum.  It is important to get involved in extra-curricular opportunities to enhance your already developed skills, learn new things about yourself, to have fun, and to connect in a socially and appropriate way with your peers.  I am excited for students and staff to return for a great school year!  It continues to be our mission to support every student socially, emotionally, physically and mentally.  Our school community invites all students and staff to feel welcomed, safe, connected, and a part of our Lisbon High School family.   

In partnership with parents/guardians, we will continue to support our attendance initiative to increase student attendance and accountability.  When a student is not in attendance, this impacts not only their own learning, but also the flow of the classroom lessons for other students to learn.  The importance of being in school is emphasized as our job together is to support students to be the best version of themselves.  Schools do not only focus on the academic knowledge to support students to graduate, it also allows students to work on skills such as being on time, interacting and engaging with others, how to manage conflict with peers/staff (or deal with people you may not agree with), time management with “downtime” (study halls for example), and how to involve yourself in daily school occurrences (some you may enjoy and others you may not).  With a continued shared partnership and parental involvement/support, we will continue our mission to ensure our students are physically present and ready to learn.  With the rigorous curriculum, engaging groups/activities, and outstanding staff at Lisbon High School, we offer unlimited opportunities to prepare you for your future. 

 Lisbon High School will continue to foster Restorative Practices again this school year.  In conjunction with “student voice”, we want to encourage a positive climate and culture within our school by promoting relationship building amongst one another, inclusiveness, and problem solving situations to hone in on solution focused results.  Although policies and appropriate consequences for our actions will continue per the handbook, we are hopeful to look through the restorative lens of each situation and support students in learning from these experiences to prepare them for adulthood.    
Although there are challenges and tribulations within any environment, we will stand strong to support and prepare our students for their future.  My door is always open, and I welcome your input.  Keeping the lines of communication open are essential to move in a positive direction.  Please feel free to stop in, call or email me at 207-353-3030 or smagee@lisbonschoolsme.org any time. 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Susan E. Magee
