Summer School Ends – One Week Make-up Begins
Students will no longer be going to summer school to make up work they did not finish during the school year. Rather, at the end of each ranking quarter, students who did not complete all their work for the quarter, will be staying after school from 2:30 to 5:00 PM to make it up. Parents will be notified if their child needs to stay, and transportation will be provided.
Next week begins playoffs for our field hockey team and soccer teams. Because of this, a School Spirit Week is scheduled with the days of the week designated as follows:
Monday – Crazy Hair Day
Tuesday – Twin/Multiplicity Day
Wednesday – School Colors Day
Thursday – Hunting Season
Friday – Wear your Hat Free for the day!
The boy’s and girl’s soccer teams begin their playoffs next week as the girls host Dexter at 3:30 here at Sebasticook and the boys play Hichborn on Tuesday at 4:00. They both will play again, Wednesday and Thursday respectively if they are victorious.
The field hockey team enters the playoffs in first place and travels to Guilford this Saturday to play at noon. If they are victorious, they will have a home game on Wednesday for the Penquis Championship.
The football team traveled to Lincoln this past Tuesday and came away with a victory. Their next game is at home on the Nokomis field this Saturday against Hermon, and the play next Tuesday as well at home against Bangor.
