  • DARE Returns Next Friday – Grade 5 students will be taking part in the DARE program beginning on Friday, September 29. Officer Shawn Merchant will running this 10-week program. We appreciate the partnership with the Ellsworth Police Department.


  • Parking – In the morning, some parents park in the lot by the Shore Road and then walk their children into the building. This leaves some middle school teachers without a spot to park. It would be appreciated if parents would park in the lot off of Forrest Avenue where there are more spaces. Once construction is over, parents will be able to access the lot by the softball field, which should fix the jam we are in now. Many thanks.


  • JV Girls’ Soccer Report - The JV girls soccer team played Brewer last night.  The girls dominated the first half and had several shots on goal, but just couldn't find the back of the net.  Brewer came out determined in the second half and scored 2 goals.  Libby had several excellent saves in goal to keep the game close.  In the last 10 minutes of the game Mariah scored the team's only goal on a penalty kick.  The girls lost a hard fought game 2-1.  The girls have the next 3 days off.  Reminder practice on Monday is early and team pictures are on Tuesday.  Please bring your uniforms.


  • Varsity Girls’ Soccer Report – The varsity soccer girls played at Brewer last night and shut them out for a 5-0 victory. Casey Carter tallied two goals and Paige Sawyer had a hat trick, scoring the other three. Jane Wu picked up the shutout in goal with defensive support from Alex Bivens, Natalie Sawyer, Laura Jude and Kahlan Keene. Great game, girls!
