Understanding Sacrifice: Researching Local Soldiers Killed in WW2

Come see our Presentation! It's FREE (though donations are accepted to support National History Day programming). 

Over the past year student, Madison Taylor, and teacher, Shane Gower, researched the story of Carl Alexander of Pittsfield, ME who died in France during the Second World War. With support from philanthropist Albert H. Small and National History Day, they along with other students and teachers from across the country, traveled to France as part of the Normandy Institute last June and visited his grave. As a result of this work, Alexander's story was posted on the award-winning Silent Heroes website. Students from Maranacook have posted the stories of 4 Silent Heroes from Maine on this website so far with plans to post more. This presentation will share our experiences through the research process, the trip to France, and the creation of the Web page.

Presenters: Shane Gower, Maddie Taylor
Date: Wednesday, February 7, 2018 (snow date: Feb. 8)

Maranacook Clothing Boutique Update

Maranacook Community High School has had a clothing boutique for several years. Perhaps you have heard about it. It operates on both clothing donations and donated funds, and there has been a very generous response to this project. Thank you to all of you that have donated in any way.

What do we offer? There are all kinds of completely free clothes for our students. Right now, we have: winter coats, fleeces, girls and men’s jeans and pants, sweaters, sweatshirts, gym shorts, tee shirts, men’s dress shirts, girls’ tops of all kinds, gym shoes and some boots. We purchase new socks, underwear, and leggings.

Awareness is one of our greatest challenges. It could increase the visibility of this service if all of you would help us spread the word about the Boutique. Please make an effort to tell at least two other parents about this free service for our students. For the most part, it is run by volunteers, and students can ask in the Health Center about usage. All students are encouraged to check it out.

Current Needs: Boys jeans in all sizes, especially 36” waist and bigger, warm coats, and gym shoes. Send in your donations to the Health Center. Please remember items must be clean and appropriate for teens. Thanks to all for your help.


Students with School ID Get in Free to Basketball Games!

Dear Parents and Families,

Through the generous donations of parents and Awesome Bears that will cover the cost of RSU #38 student admissions to 2017-2018 HS basketball games, students presenting their RSU #38 student identification cards will be admitted to all home HS basketball games without cost. Students will be getting identification cards from school.  Students must present these cards in order to attend the games without charge.  Should the cards be lost or misplaced, students or parents may contact staff in the school office to request replacements.

Donna H. Wolfrom, Ed.D.
Superintendent

Kennebec Behavioral Health Services

Have you noticed that your child is having difficulties with friends, seems sad or may be struggling with school related anxiety? Do you wish you could help but don’t know how?

Maranacook is fortunate to have two fully licensed clinical social workers available during the school day to provide ongoing counseling services for students having challenges with their mental health. These confidential services are provided by Kennebec Behavioral Health through the School Based Health Center.

If you think that these services may be helpful for your child, please contact Sandy Hunter, the school nurse at 685-4923 x 1033.


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!

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.
