New Director of Student Services

Hello, my name is Brant Remington and I am both nervous and excited to be a part of the Maranacook community. I come here by way of Lewiston High School where I was a physical education teacher, and girl’s varsity soccer and lacrosse coach. Previous to Lewiston, I was a middle school math and science teacher for 15 years.  I have had a lot of experiences as a coach in many different sports, at many levels, and with both genders. I have coached boys and girls soccer, Nordic skiing, girls basketball, junior varsity baseball, girls lacrosse, and softball. I have also worked with student council, math team, and drama club.  

I was a coach here at Maranacook from 1998-2002. I was the boys JV soccer coach for two years and varsity for my last three. I also worked 5 years with the Nordic ski team as an assistant coach and trail groomer.

I live in Greene with my wife Tracy of 15 years and our 9-year-old son Brody. In my spare time, I like to ride my ATV and watch a lot of soccer. I grew up in the Bethel area and graduated from Telstar High School and received my teaching degree from the University of Maine at Farmington.

Many athletes and students like to call me “Rem”.
GO BEARS! @MaranacookAD


New Principal Welcome!

Dear MCMS Families,  

I hope you are all having a great summer!  I am writing to introduce myself as the new principal of Maranacook Community Middle School.

I grew up in New Hampshire, attended college at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, then spent some time working as a YMCA middle school program director in Massachusetts immediately after college. Some of you, with older children, may know me from the high school, where I have served as a school counselor, teacher, dean of students, and most recently, as the assistant principal. I have lived in the Kennebec Valley with my family for the past 11 years.  My children will be attending Wayne Elementary School in the fall.

Middle school is truly a unique time in our children's lives, where they go through the transition of being a “kid” to becoming a young adult. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with these students and all of you to help guide them through this time. The 2018-19 school year is going to be a year full of new learning and experiences for your child and I am excited to watch them grow!

I am looking forward to getting to know your children and being part of the MCMS community. I would love the opportunity to meet you and your family. Please feel free to call (or email) me at any time.  

Have a wonderful summer,

Kristen Levesque

“In order for adolescents to become caring, informed, and involved citizens, they must learn ways to: earn and show respect, develop a sense of belonging, and build a sense of personal self-worth. Adolescents must also be able to solve complex problems, use technical and analytical skills, adapt to rapid changes in society, and live respectfully in an increasingly diverse culture.”

BUS PASS PROCEDURE

Students are assigned a bus number at the start of the school year based on their home address. Bus seating is at capacity.
Bus passes (to ride a different bus) are only given out for emergency reasons (such as daycare) and require Parent & Transportation Office permission.

Students are not allowed to call home to make "After School Plans" - students are expected to bring "after school plan" notes to the office in the morning when they arrive at school.

Philosophy & Mission

Philosophy

In order for adolescents to become caring, informed, and involved citizens, they must learn ways to: earn and show respect, develop a sense of belonging, and build a sense of personal self worth. Adolescents must also be able to solve complex problems, use technical and analytical skills, adapt to rapid changes in society, and live respectfully in an increasingly diverse culture.

Mission

The Maranacook Community Middle School will guide students to make responsible decisions and develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding which will transition them to a successful life course.

The Maranacook Community Middle School Program will support this mission by:

* offering challenging, integrated curricula that build on the basic skills needed to succeed in every day life.
* using a variety of teaching and learning approaches that meet the individual learning needs of each student.
* assessing student performance in ways that promote self-reflection and learning.
* providing for maximum flexibility in how learning opportunities are organized.
* creating policies and curricula that foster health, wellness, and safety.
*providing comprehensive guidance and support services for all students.
