- The Empty Bowls Project aims to raise money and awareness of hunger in our area
The Empty Bowls Project
Friday, March 7, 2014
Adults – $10
Student/seniors – $7.50
The goal of this project is to raise money for the local food pantries in Oakland, Belgrade/Rome, and Sidney. The project also raises awareness about the issues of food scarcity in our own community.
My students have been busy crafting ceramics bowls. These are all made with food safe glazes. The supper will feature a wide variety of soups, a salad, bread, and desserts. People attending select a bowl from the many offered and the soup will be served in this bowl. Following the meal the diner takes the bowl home, a tangible reminder of the event and the need. We hope that you enjoy and use your bowl for years to come.
You can help:
- Come to the event
- Donate a soup. Show off your fabulous culinary skills. Put it in a crock pot (so that we may keep it warm). The crock pot should be labeled with your name somewhere. Perhaps a piece of tape at the bottom.
- Desserts such as a sheet cake, cookies or brownies
- Cash is always welcome too.
Food items (soups and desserts) should be delivered to MHS by 4:30 so that we may adequately set up. We’ll need your ladle as well
Every year people have wanted to know recipes. If you are willing to provide the recipe, we will distribute copies.
Make a full evening of it – the MHS players will present the play Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Show at 7pm. What could be better than dinner and a movie!

The Messalonskee Library has worked hard to bring engaging activities and events that help build our school community and encourage students to get in our library and engage with books (even those some of us book aficionados might not necessarily be interested in reading).
Mrs. Jadczak and the MHS Library crew have come up with the idea of bringing the vendors into the high school to have students decide what books to buy! On Wednesday February 26th sales people from Bull Moose Music and Books will be bringing in a display of graphic novels, anime, and comic books to the library during Academic Support time (AST). Students will be able to review the work, ask questions, and ultimately select titles to be added to the library collection.
In addition during AST on Wednesday, March 5th – MHS Alumni Avery Richter will be coming in to do a live cooking demonstration and tasting session for students (space limited so sign up in advance!)
Messalonskee High School is pleased to announce our February Students of the Month: Nathan Violette (Freshman), Garrett Main (Sophomore), Emma Walsh (Junior), and Jacob Archer (Senior).
These students were chosen for their academic improvement/excellence and their contribution to the Messalonskee school community. The students were nominated by MHS faculty members and chosen by the school’s Culture Committee and Leadership Team. The students’ pictures will be on display. In addition, they will receive preferential parking at the school as well as a variety of items donated by local businesses that support Messalonskee’s goal of honoring excellence in the school. Congratulations to these deserving students!
