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!

Maranacook History Teacher Asking For Your Help To Tell The Story Of A Fallen Hero Of WWII

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 shane_gower@maranacook.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.

Black Bear Boutique & Maranacook Food Pantry

Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 11.11.59 AMWe 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.
