The past two weeks our middle school band and chorus students had their spring performances at the FPAC. It was a pleasure to watch our students perform at such high levels under the teaching of Mrs. York and Mrs. Lawson. Before the end of the year, band and chorus students will have two more upcoming music events. Band students will be performing in the Memorial Day Parade and we will have a jazz night at FMS on June 11th. A side note, Mrs. Lawson will not be returning as our chorus teacher next year. If you would like to be a part of this hiring committee (or any other hiring committees that may come up over the summer) please let me know.
I have just spent the past 3 days in Acadia with most of our 7th graders, continuing the Freeport/Pownal tradition of getting our students outside the classroom to experience learning hands on. While in Acadia we studied climate change and did some great hikes. Other hands on learning in the district include the fifth grade trip to Chewonki and sixth grade trip to Kieve. We are very lucky to have communities, parents, and teachers that support these learning opportunities.
Eighth-grade parent dates to remember:
• June 17th Dirty Thirties night for parents and students
• June 18th Dirty Thirties Breadline lunch for students
• June 20th Promotion, 6:00 pm at FMS
After the celebration at the middle school, students have traditionally gone galactic bowling with a group of parents chaperoning until about 11 pm. We will be sending out more information in the next week or so.
Have a great weekend,
