Carrabec Community School


May was a very busy month here at CCS as we started gearing down for the final days of the school year. 


We held our Kindergarten Screening on May 2nd here at CCS.  It was a steady flow of eager little ones coming into our building preparing to start school in the fall.  Along with this, Mrs. Fournier and myself have visited both preschools in our district to introduce ourselves to next years’ kindergarteners. 


On May 8th we held our “Walking School Bus”.  All of our students were dropped off at the high school that morning and joined staff members in a walk to CCS.  It was a crisp morning


On May 13th our Math League, accompanied by Mr. Twitchell and Mr. Stone, traveled to Madison to compete against other districts alike.  I am proud to say that our team took first in the competition. 


Our K – 5 students traveled to the Garret Schenck School to participate in Career Days.  Adults from different walks of life came in to share their career choices with the students.   This is a great opportunity for our students to be exposed to the various career choices that are out there for them to pursue. 


The Portland Sea Dogs hold an annual Day for all Civil Rights Teams in the State of Maine to go and be recognized and watch a Sea Dogs game.  On May 17th our Civil Rights Team traveled to Hadlock Field to participate in this day and enjoy the ball game. 


Mr. Larlee made arrangements with the Waterville Opera House for the K – 2 students to go and view a performance.  This year the students attended the performance “The Jungle Book”.  It is great to expose our students to theatre with performances they can relate to.


Mr. Reichenbach and Mr. Ferrari teamed up to present an evening of “Art meets Science”.  Mr. Ferrari's 8th grade students each had a science project to share and Mr. Reichenbach displayed all of his students’ art work for the year for the entire district.  It was a great evening with a fantastic turn out.
