On Thursday, December 3 from 6:00-7:30 pm we will be hosting a community forum on proficiency-based education at MCHS. It includes a free spaghetti dinner. Babysitting will be offered for children through age 10, along with a pizza supper.
Staff will share information about what proficiency-based systems are, their purpose, requirements of the Maine proficiency-based diploma law, and work to date in RSU #38. All attending will be invited to respond during an interactive, workshop session. The goal is to explore ways we can develop a proficiency-based education system at Maranacook that is a “good fit” for our community and students. We recognize that whatever we start with will require “tweaks” along the way. The questions and concerns of participants at the first community forum of three planned for this year will provide important guidance for that process.
A spaghetti dinner will be provided. Babysitting will be offered for children through age 10, along with a pizza supper.
Please RSVP by calling Kim Radley at 685-4923 ext. 1070 or by emailing Kimberly_Radley@maranacook.org

We have just received the official word from the CDC that influenza has arrived in our State.
Symptoms of influenza include:
Fever (usually 102 or greater and lasts 3-4 days)
The best way to preve nt any illness is good hand washing! And remember to cover cough and sneezes, stay home when you are sick and get the flu vaccine, if you have not already done so!!
The Black Bear Boutique would respectfully like to put a hold on clothing donations at this time. We so appreciate the community coming forward so generously but right now we are filled to capacity! Stay tuned for periodic updates and thanks to all for your continued support.

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, or Cynthia Kuhns in the high school media center, ext. 1076.
There are many ways to make a tax-deductible donation!
