Principal’s Pen: May 13-17
Eighteen days until Graduation seems hard to believe. The seniors are gearing up for finals, marching practice, senior last assembly and finally, the main event, Graduation. The underclassmen are also preparing for finals as well as the YES program. Mr. Dunbar has completed the rosters for each student and we will be entering them into Power School this week, we hope.
On May 21st, which is our early release day, members of the Department of Education will be visiting our school and meeting with a small group of students to get their input into what success looks like here at Messalonskee. The Department of Education is taking a look at different ways to measure the success of a school. Taking control of the message about schools is the goal. While standardized tests do give us some valuable information, they are not the only way to measure success. Should you wish for your son/daughter to not be selected to participate in this meeting please call the main office and speak with either Mrs. Dube or Mrs. Caouette.
Spring Fling is May 22nd and while some may feel that this is a day off it really is a school day. We encourage all students to be in attendance and participate in all of the activities planned for that day. If your son/daughter is planning on not being in attendance on the 22nd we would need a phone call indicating such in order to count it as an excused absence.
Last week Mid-Maine Technical Center held its National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony. Messalonskee is very proud to announce that the following students are now members of the NTHS: Jasmine Lambert, Tom LaPlante, Roslin Desiderio, Dean Simpson, Markiana Hewett, Olivia Lagace, Dan Miller, Ethan Burton, Aislinn McDaniel, Molly Milligan, and Elizabeth Simmons.
