Correct Change
Please do not send your child to school with large monetary bills. We can't always break the bills for them, therefore, they are sometimes unable to use the vending machines.

Both baseball and softball A teams won their games this week. The B boys went 1-1 and the B softball team went 2-0. Next Tuesday the A teams will travel to Penquis and the B teams will be at Dexter on Wednesday. Congratulations to the track team for a great showing at their meet in Ellsworth on Tuesday. Good luck to them at their Invitational Meet next Tuesday.
