CLUB Recaps~ 

A few comments from this past school year Club Advisors~


Math Club~ Mr. Garnett

The math team had an exciting year with several students receiving individual awards for outstanding performance at meets. 

The 7th grade team also placed highly at 2 meets, earning two trophies. 

Next year we hope to expand and add an 8th grade math team. 

We are always looking for students who are eager to learn more about competitive mathematics. 


Science Club~ Mrs. Brown

The After School Science Club at Freeport Middle School is a fun way to explore a hands-on science activity! 

Once a month, visiting scientists from the Maine School Science Volunteers share what they know about such topics as

electricity, rockets, sand from around the world, and wind power. 

Our last meeting of the school year, each student made a camera obscura to take home. 

The technology of the camera has been used for centuries by artists and scientists to study the natural world. 

Students are welcome to come to as many science club activities as they can --

All you need to bring is curiosity and a willing to try new things!  



See you in the Fall! 

We need new members -

Please consider volunteering on our committee.

It is a rewarding experience.

Information from Erin Dow, RSU5 Director of Nutrition

Free Summer Lunch for Kids

Freeport Community Services will be running the Summer Free Lunch for Kids program.
Summer vacation means many things to children in the Freeport area- 
sunshine, freedom, outdoor play and family outings.
But for a growing number of kids the end of school also means an 
end to the school lunch program,
which provides the one nutritious meal they can depend on each day. 
Once again, Freeport Community Services (FCS) will be running the 
Summer Free Lunch for Kids program. 
Beginning on June 24th and running daily through August 23rd – 
except the 4th of July -
FCS will be preparing and serving free, healthy lunches for children.
Meals distributed at the Freeport Community Center, and at 
Mast Landing School will be provided to all eligible children free of charge. 
(To be eligible to receive free meals at these sites, 
children must meet the income guidelines for reduced-price meals in the 
National School Lunch Program.)
Children who are part of households that receive 
Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP, formally foods stamps)
benefits or benefits under the Food Distribution Program on 
Indian Reservations (FCPIR), or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families
(TANF) are automatically eligible to receive free meals.
Meals distributed at the Village View Apartments Community Room, 
and at Wildwood Acres on Elm Street will be provided
to all children with no income or residency requirements!
Lunch at all sites is served at 11:30 am – 12pm Monday through Friday. 
All children under the age of 19 are welcome.
For more information, call Sarah Lundin at 865-3985 x205.
Volunteers are needed Monday – 
Friday to prepare, deliver, serve and monitor lunches at these sites.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Debbie Daggett,
Volunteer Coordinator at 865-3985 x206, or email ddaggett@fcsmaine.org
