Budget Validation Referendum at individual town’s polling locations.
Shane Gower is researching the life of U.S. Army Private First Class Harvey J. Madore and is looking for help from the residents of the Augusta area. Private First Class Madore died on the border of Germany and France in March 1945. Gower, a teacher at Maranacook Community High School, is participating in a program with National History Day® called Understanding Sacrifice. Sponsored by the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC), the program takes 18 teachers from around the country on a journey of learning and discovery of sacrifice through the story of a Fallen Hero of World War II. Each teacher selects one Fallen Hero who is memorialized at an ABMC Cemetery in Southern Europe or North Africa. The program concludes by taking the group to Europe where teachers deliver a eulogy at the memorial of their Fallen Hero.
Gower has chosen to research the life of Private First Class Madore and is looking for help telling his story. Private First Class Madore was born in Van Buren, Maine and grew up in Augusta. He attended a parochial school there and was drafted into the Army in 1943. Gower was contacted by Private First Class Madore’s son, Robert Madore, who has shared photos and information about his father. Private First Class Madore trained at Camp Van Dorn in Mississippi before being deployed to Europe.
Now, Gower is looking for your help to finish telling the story of Private First Class Madore. If you have any information about U.S. Army Private First Class Harvey J. Madore please contact Gower at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact him at Maranacook Community High School in Readfield.
The Understanding Sacrifice program was created to reinvigorate WWII teaching in the classroom. It is a partnership between National History Day, the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, and the American Battle Monuments Commission. The research conducted by the teachers will be used to create lesson plans about WWII for use in classrooms around the world. To learn more about the program, visit ABMCeducation.org.

The Black Bear Boutique is finishing up another very successful year...undoubtedly our best yet! Students are much more aware of the Boutique, and community members have been very supportive in so many ways. So many nice items of clothing have cycled through our wonderful space.
We are having a Boutique Extravaganza on Wednesday, May 4th. Clothing will be available on tables and racks in the hallway for all students. If students would like to bring in one or two items to increase our collection, that would be awesome too. Bring something in if you want and take something home! Items should be clean and in good repair. Donation jars will be available too if students want to add to our budget. Our goal is to make students aware of our shop, and we hope to move some of our items out to make room for new items. We hope it will be a fun time! Thrift shops and consignment shops are the new way to be a smart shopper!
This is where we ask for donations of good, clean, teen appropriate clothing to restock our shelves and racks. Here's a list of some of our needed items: Girls Summer dresses and tops, Girls Lighter Weight/warmer season jeans, all sizes, Sweat Pants in Large and XL, Boys Jeans with 30 or 31 waist, Light Weight spring/summer jacket, all sizes PE shorts, shirts, and sweatshirts.
Thank you for previous and future support!
Bringing the clothes to Sandy Hunter in the Health Center is the way to do it. Thank you all!

Students in Sacrifice for Freedom class, which focuses on historical research in English and a Foreign Language, are working on a porject to document the lives of people who made sacrifices duing the World War Two Era. One part of the project is a memorial at Maranacook Community High School, dedicated to Lewis Frelan Goddard, a soldier killed in the War.
Check out the article featured in the KJ:
The class has organized a GoFund Me website to try and raise money for the project. If you are interested in contributing here is the link to the project: gofund.me/frelanww2
We are working to help students and their families cope with unmet needs for food and clothing throughout the school year. Our aim is to provide good quality, clean used clothing, as well as basic easy-to-prepare food items (canned soups & fruit, breakfast cereals, pasta & tomato sauce), which will provide some comfort and support so that students can concentrate on their academic responsibilities.
Young people concerned with the basic issues of hunger and access to suitable clothing cannot easily address classroom activities and assigned homework. We hope to help ease their distraction a bit through giving them access to our Boutique and Pantry in order to make them comfortable and help free them to learn.
If you do know of a student who could use some help, please encourage that child to contact us. We’ll be glad to help. For clothing or food needs, please contact our school nurse, Sandy Hunter, @ 685-4923 ext. 1033.
