Announcement from YEARBOOK! We are adjusting to new circumstances and dealing with some events/clubs that are not taking place. PLEASE participate in #CopingWithCovid! This is a historical event and the more fun we have with #CopingWithCovid the better it will make the yearbook and the memories we will have. The idea is to chronicle this historic event and to commemorate the event. Get pictures and spread the word. COVID-19 is a major disruption and these pics are meant to symbolize that disruption. Please be sure and follow social distancing guidelines and have some fun!

We are looking for a volunteer who is able to pick up boxes of doughnuts from Auburn and deliver to the school by 1:45 p.m. on a weekday. Ideally, the volunteer would have a large SUV or van as we are predicting an order of 200+ boxes of doughnuts. The date of delivery is flexible as we haven't started the fundraiser yet. All of the proceeds will benefit the senior year activities for the Class of 2023. Our goal is to raise $14,000 by the end of senior year. This fundraiser can generate up to $3,000!

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!
