On March 31st Kelsey Dillon, Alden Balboni, and Gabby Languet were honored as our March Students of the Month!
A faculty committee chose the students from pool of students submitted for the award by staff at MHS. As is always the case, this group of students were presented the award at a whole-school assembly in honor of their efforts in and out of classes at MHS.
This Friday we will be having our April SOM Assembly to honor another group of students including the missing freshmen student from the month of March.
The Morning Sentinel/Kennebec Journal Swimmers of the year were named last week and it was no surprise to those of us from Messalonskee that Kenzie and Ben were again recognized!
These tremendous athletes were members of an amazing swim team that excelled in and out of the pool all year. Having had the chance to attend the senior meet this year (which included some very strong swimmers from Lawrence and Waterville as well: Photo below) I was able to see their school pride in action.
Messalonskee Swim and all of us at MHS will miss having our Seniors Ann, Ayden, Ben, Griffin, Katelyn, Katie, Kyle, Emily, Liz, Madison, and Sally!

The FAFSA Deadline has been moved and therefore MHS is leveraging our MELMAC grant to provide another working informational night for our students and their parents. This night is important for our Juniors and even our Seniors. We’ve sent notes home to all of our Juniors and Seniors over the past two weeks but wanted to post additional information below:
Please join us Wednesday, March 30th at Messalonskee High School, PAC at 6pm for Financial Aid Night. We will be discussing how to apply for FAFSA, types of financial aid and comparing award packages. If you have not already done so, please have access to social security numbers and email in order to set up your FSA ID which is required for applying for FAFSA.

The MHS Photo Club is one of many different options students have to learn and grow outside the classroom as well as an opportunity to find their niche’ at Messalonskee.
Color is just one of the things which people actually see differently—perceptions also shift as people observe the same objects, yet see them differently. To that end, photography is one way of learning to see—and to play with light and form, color and texture, and more—reframing even the ordinary in new ways. Messalonskee High School’s Photo Club has been working on creating photos for a couple of displays. The first display, on the windows lining the hallway outside the Library, is a variety of photos of animals and pets. The second exhibit, which is on display in downtown Oakland at the Camden National Bank on Main Street—and in the attached slideshow—is primarily a blend of the students’ best nature photos.

Upcoming plans include a field trip on Spring Fling Day in May, out to the alpaca farm in Sidney. New members are always welcome! Questions, contact Photo Club Advisor, Kiri Guyaz at MHS Library.
