More photos from Day of Welcome
Today we celebrated our school’s first-ever Day of Welcome. Our civil rights team and civil rights teams all across Maine celebrated and promoted the idea that our school communities are for everyone. This event was sponsored by the Maine Office of the Attorney General through the Civil Rights Team Project, who support us in our work of engaging the school community in thinking and talking about issues related to race and skin color, national origin and ancestry, religion, disabilities, gender (including gender identity and expression), and sexual orientation. The Civil Rights Team Project and civil rights teams are supported in this work by state law and our school policies. Our civil rights team used the Day of Welcome to make a powerful statement about the kind of school community we all want, while introducing ourselves and engaging our peers in understanding our ongoing work. Thank you to our wonderful staff and students who offered vocal and visible support of the event! Thank you also to Ntension in Bangor, ME for donating these promotional banners! The lasting impact of these banners is immeasurable and our team is beyond appreciative!

Students in Mr. Petersen's Making History course visited the old one-room schoolhouse across from the Superintendent's Office. They found a variety of items: books from the 1850's, outdated maps and yearbook photos of some of their teachers in the 80's. They decided the building has a lot of potential and are brainstorming ideas for ways they can use the space to learn and teach others about the history of our community. Thanks to student Alex Baker for taking some great photos!
