 Carrabec High School


·    The Guidance Department is pleased to announce that their 6th Annual Giving Tree Fundraiser collected over $2,605.00 worth of gift cards and cash from CHS Staff, JMG, NHS, various private businesses, Hannaford, Reny’s, Wal-Mart, Subway, Strand Cinema, and ITunes.  The Guidance staff was able to purchase a “gift” for every single student at the high school!  A BIG thank you goes out to the faculty and friends who donated cards and cash and Mrs. Pat Jarvis for organizing this.


  • Students at Carrabec will participate in the Project Unified Sports Basketball Program!  This program provides students with special needs an opportunity to play basketball and compete against other schools.  Carrabec will be coached by John Vartanian, a graduate of Carrabec.


  • On December 12, JMG students from Carrabec High School took part in their annual Santa's Helpers community service project.  Carrabec JMG raised $2,000 to purchase gifts, warm clothes and holiday meals for families in our community. We were able to fill every ticket!  Students sold tickets for a chance to win $150.00 cash.  The highest seller earned the opportunity to go on the shopping trip, this year there was 15.  There was even a little left over to purchase additional Hannaford and gas gift cards for families within our schools.


  • Sophomore students attended the play “A Christmas Carol” presented by  Portland Stage Company in Portland on December 12th.  Gear-up MPP grant monies funded this trip.

  • Lastly, I wish you and yours a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
