What is Set for Success?

Set for Success provides a new backpack and school supplies to every student in RSU 1, regardless of need, ensuring every student begins the school year on a level playing field, ready for a successful year of learning. This is more than just giving out school supplies. It’s a way to make sure that no one falls through the cracks.

It’s about students and families getting to know the community organizations that provide a variety of supports. It’s about strengthening relationships through face-to-face connections in a fun, celebratory way. It’s passionately caring for each and every child in our community.

New Backpack

Every student will receive a brand new backpack or can bring their own if they already have a favorite they'd like to use!

School Supplies

Every student who attends will receive a list from their teacher; they can then "shop" for their supplies free of charge.

Information Highway

Meet community leaders and learn more about local organizations; there will be lots of free gifts & giveaways.

Hair Cuts

Students are invited to free haircuts so they can look their best on the first day of school!

Clothing Closet

Help yourself to the wide variety of new and gently used clothing available to anyone in the community. 


Let's kick off a new year of learning together by coming together as a community to support every student and their families!
