Principal’s Pen: March 12-16

Good Afternoon:

On our website I have written a letter outlining the upcoming National Walk-out Day which is being held on March 14th from 10:00 am-10:17 am. Students wishing to participate are encouraged to wear their Eagle Pride attire as the victims of the February 14th incident attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School whose mascot is an Eagle.

We have  Parent/Teacher conferences scheduled for this Wednesday (5-8) and Thursday (3:00-6:30). Should we not have school on Wednesday due to the snow storm conferences will be cancelled. If we have a late start to the day we will hold conferences at the regularly scheduled time.

Those who helped make the Empty Bowls dinner and the play, Almost Maine, a huge success need to be congratulated on a job well done. Many of the members of Key Club were serving up chowders and soups as well as setting up for the dinner. A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Perrino, Mrs. Burton and Mrs. Damon for the time and energy they put in not only last Friday but the many weeks leading up to the event. Once again this dinner was a huge success.

Our Robotics Team has begun it’s competition season. Last weekend they were in Massachusetts for a meet and although their robot gave them some trouble they made it to the semi-finals before losing 2 out of their 3 matches. Their perseverance and drive to overcome the shortfalls of the robot are to be commended. If you would like to see the team in action you can attend their competition in Lewiston at the Colisee on Friday, March 23rd and again on Saturday, March 24th.

Due to the winter storm today the Winter Sports Recognition Night has been postponed. Mrs. Fisher will be sending out an email with details to when this event will be rescheduled. If you’re not on her email list please reach out to her by calling the Athletic Office at 465-4990.

And finally, to all the band and chorus students heading to Disney on Thursday morning, we hope you enjoy every minute that you are down there. We know that the work will be hard but we also know that you will make MHS proud.

Stay safe everyone and enjoy the day

Paula
