Re: Principal’s Report

Carrabec High School

    • Vacation School will take place on Monday thru Thursday, during the week of February Vacation. This opportunity is supported with funds from our Gear Up Grant.

    • On January 24th Carrabec held Careers in the Classroom, prior to this day students took a survey asking what careers they were the most interested in learning more about. Each student learned about 3 different careers some with hands on experiences. There were 16 different businesses with us that day including, Psychology, Plumbing & Welding, Physical Therapy, Nursing, Music, Mechanics, Lawyer, Law Enforcement, Firefighter, Engineering, EMT, Education, Culinary, Computer Technology, Biology and Art. Our Key Note Speaker was Dr. Dustin Kniffin, who is a Carrabec Alumni and now owns a very successful Chiropractic Business in Madison.

    • Once again, 3rd year students (juniors) will be taking the SAT as the assessment for high school students in the State of Maine. All third year students will be taking the SAT on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, at the high school. Mrs. Conway, Guidance Director, will be providing more information as it gets closer.

    • On January 28th, Carrabec’s National Honor Society, 20 students, volunteered at the Special Olympics held at Sugarloaf.

    • I would like to give a shout out to Ms. Julie Richard, as she has been doing an excellent job as our Athletic Director!

    • I would like to thank Lisa Turner for her hard work and dedication to our district for the past 19 years! Lisa’s last day is Friday, January 31. We wish her well and we will miss her!
