Messalonskee is pleased to announce our May Student of the Month award winners!
Steven, Ryan, Cameron, and Taylor epitomize the amazing diverse qualities that we have come to see in the SOM recipients over the past three years. Each has contributed to our school and local community and set an example of the positive impact MHS students can have!
As always they were joined on stage with their families who helped celebrate their accomplishments.
Each month a committee of MHS teachers (the “Culture Club”) come together to sort through nominations and select a student of the month. Students who are selected are chosen for their contribution to the school, their academic performance and growth, and their citizenship. The SOM assemblies, as they are called, are a highlight of the month for us and a chance to recognize not only that Month’s students but also the contributions made by many in our Messalonskee school community.
On April 29th we were pleased to honor another wonderful group of students at our monthly SOM assembly in the PAC. This Month the group was larger than normal, as one of the awardees from March was out sick and was recognized with the April students.
Markiana, Alexis, Zach, Patrick and Brandon were honored as their efforts at MHS have come to Epitomize how students can broadly impact their school in so many different ways. In addition to the pin, certificate, shirt and extreme honor of the award, the Senior SOM will be given the closest parking spot at Messalonskee for the duration of the following month (May).
In addition to our student awards, we was pleased to honor Dr. Andy Cook, Messalonskee volunteer and RSU18 school board member, who was awarded the Governor’s service pin and certificate for over 300 hours of community service tutoring students at MHS. Dr. Cook’s efforts have been a great example for all of us (students and adults alike), of how adults can give back to their community’s schools by volunteering.
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!
