Principal's Message
School ended on a high note with a great spring concert and talent show, wonderful weather for our field day to Lamoine, and a nicely-done graduations by the 8th graders and their classmates. We will miss Ruby, Cyrus, and Cassidy an wish them the best in high school!

We also are saying good-bye to Ms. Linders as she will be staying home to be with her young children. We hope to see them come by for events at the school. We will miss seeing them every day!

The new teacher will be Ms. Kate Anderson. She is a new resident in Amherst and is very excited to be able to work here. We look forward to having her here in the upcoming school year.

Pre-K will again be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday all day in 2018-19

The after-school program will again run everyday in 2018-19 from 3:15-5:30. Please let the school know the first day of each week when your child will attend (if possible). 

If your child will be absent from school, please contact the school by 8:30 AM on that day. This a safety measure besides being a heads up for the classroom teacher.

Both cross country and coed soccer will be offered again in the fall of 2018.

The track team had a great final meet at the Almquist Invitational Track Meet in Orono at UMaine on Monday, May 21. 

The girls' basketball team (8-3) were in the Mid-Maine League Division I Championship game for the first time ever! They fell to a very strong  Greenbush team: nevertheless it was an awesome season.

The boys' season finishing with a 20-18 loss to Highview Christian. This was after  a thrilling victory over Greenbush as Brady hit two free throws with 0.2 seconds on the clock to snatch victory from defeat! 

The soccer team has finished its  season. They beat Indian Island on Friday, October 13 by a score of 4-0. Having another chance to defeat the Warriors, they took advantage of their steady improvement throughout the year. As a result, they played undefeated Highview Christian in a semi-final. Despite playing much better than in their first game against Highview, they lost 7-0. Overall it was a fun season, and the team was excited to be back in the league. They hope to do better next year! 

The cross country team has also finished their season. All of the six runners improved throughout the season. Four of them set PR's at the Invitational. All three girls won ribbons or a medal in all of their races. Kate, Michaela, and Grace hope to add a couple girls to their group next year so they can score as a team.   The boys (Cob, Brady, and Daniel) also are often seen running near each other pushing each other to better finishes each race. It was great to see both Brady and Cob ribbon at the Coastals and Daniel set his PR at the Invitational. They too hope to have two more runners to field a team next year. It was a great season!
