School Administrative District 28 invites the community to join in its Fall Community Book Read “Creative Schools” by Ken Robinson.

The Book Read will culminate in a group discussion Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Camden-Rockport Middle School Library. Parents, students and community members interested in innovative education are encouraged to participate.

The SAD 28 School Board, which oversees Camden-Rockport Elementary School and Camden-Rockport Middle School, chose “Creative Schools” as its 2016 summer read and would like to share the book’s important ideas with the wider K-8 school community.

Copies of “Creative Schools” are available to borrow at Camden Public Library, Rockport Public Library, Camden-Rockport Elementary School and Camden-Rockport Middle School.

"This book offers some important ideas about refocusing education to foster creativity. I’m eager to hear the community’s thoughts about how we may incorporate some of these ideas to enhance learning in our schools," said Superintendent Maria Libby in a news release. Libby noted also that “Creative Schools” is a great follow up to last year’s public screening of the film “Most Likely to Succeed.”

The Five Town CSD, the district that oversees Camden Hills Regional High School, plans to host a community book read in the spring.
