It has been a busy spring this year with many of our teachers retiring or moving to different parts of the state. We also cut two teaching positions going into next year due to declining enrollment. In addition we hired Mrs. Barry as our Instructional Coach for Messalonskee Middle School (MMS) to take over as Mrs. Glennon retires. Due to those changes we have made a few adjustments to our teams going into next year. I wanted to send this information out to all families so that you know what will be happening next year.
All students on teams Atlantic and Kennebec will be placed on one of the 7-8 teams. Those teams will be Pemaquid, Highlands, Boothbay and Evergreen. If you have a current 7th grade student on one of those teams, they will remain on that team next year. Students who are currently in 7th grade and on team Popham will be placed on one of the four 7-8 teams listed previously. All new grade 6 students to MMS will be placed either on team Atlantic or team Kennebec.
Here are the teachers who will be on each of the teams next year.
Atlantic (Grade 6) – Ms. Ravelo, Mr. German, Ms. McCaslin & Mr. Marr
Boothbay (Grades 7 & 8) – Mrs. Herrick, Mrs. Mahoney, Mrs Fegel & Mrs. Michaud
Evergreen (Grades 7 & 8) – Mr. Lisa, Mrs. Gifford, Ms. Cooke & New ELA Teacher Hire
Highlands (Grades 7 & 8) – Ms. Routhier, Mr. Rice, Mr. Langley & New ELA Teacher Hire
Kennebec (Grade 6) – Mrs. Tupper, Mr. Mahoney, Mrs. Overlock & Mrs. Dumont
Pemaquid (Grades 7 & 8) – Mrs. Haskell, Mr. Weatherbie, Mrs. Timme & Mrs. Ripa
You will be notified by August 1st of the team your child will be placed on for next year. That mailing will contain a newsletter from the team, a Unified Arts Schedule and a letter with important dates for the start of the year. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
