Good Morning! Today is a Blue Day
Students are reminded that they should be on school grounds by 7:45 (unless they are having breakfast), and in their homerooms by 7:48 (when announcements start). After that time, students are unexcused tardy (unless they are coming in from an appointment).

Media Use Permission forms were sent home with every student who does not have one on file with us. These forms allow our staff to take pictures of your students and use their names in print for various different recognition purposes and videos. Any student who does NOT have one of these signed permission forms on file will not be allowed to have his or her picture included in any end of the year celebration videos. This includes the 8th grade Promotion video that is shown in the auditorium the night of the promotion ceremony. These videos are uploaded to our social media and are made public for our parents to enjoy. If you are not sure if you have signed one of these forms for your child you may click on the attachment, print, sign it and have your child return it to school. These forms need to be received by the office no later than May 25th. Media Use Permission Form

Chris Kullman, Garren Post, Bronson Damon and Reid Garber provided the offense yet again against a very strong Gorham pitching staff. Brothers Alec and Bryce Hodgkins provided outstanding defensive plays in the final two innings to secure the win for the boys who have now won 4 straight.
Girls’ Softball: The girls finally got a win on the road! They played a tough 8th grade Gorham team and won 9-6! Everyone on the team contributed to this win. Grace Wallace pitched another amazing game to her great catcher Madison Cole who had some big saves behind the plate. Delaney Butts as well as Emma Hawkes both came up big with clutch hits to secure the win. So proud of this team win! The girls play Lyman Moore tomorrow and Windham on Friday. Big week ahead of us!
