Dear Parents and Families,

Annual Report

RSU #38 in Top 10!

I am proud to announce that RSU #38 has been named as one of the top 10 school districts to live in, in Maine by Niche.com. Our district offers many exciting opportunities for our students, and I believe that our staff members and administrators are some of the best in the state. This high ranking is confirmation of their hard work and dedication to excellence. https://www.niche.com/k12/rankings/public-school-districts/best-overall/s/maine/

Please visit the link below to learn more about the factors that went into the ranking of districts. 

"The 2017 Best School Districts ranking is based on rigorous analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, public school district ratings, and more. https://www.niche.com/…/public-sc…/best-overall/methodology/ "

Maranacook Food Pantry at HS needs Backpacks!

Do you have any spare backpacks hanging in a closet somewhere? Are you replacing your child’s backpack for this coming school year, and looking to get rid of the old backpack?

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 7.26.06 PMWe need backpacks!

Please consider donating used backpacks to the Maranacook Food Pantry at the high school.

We send home food to middle and high school students in need and the easiest, most secure way to transport food items is in a backpack. If you can donate any, please drop them off at the high school office, or leave them at the school health center.

We appreciate any help you can give us!
