KES Garden Volunteer Day! #wearekatahdin #katahdinstrong
Katahdin Middle/High School ranks in the top 10!! Hear ye, Hear ye…. We have GREAT news to share!!! On April 26th, the Portland Press Journal reported that Katahdin Middle/High School made the top 10!! The U.S. News list ranked more than 17,800 public high schools across the nation, including 113 in Maine. The rankings are based on college readiness, reading and math proficiency and performance, underserved student performance, college leave course offerings and graduation rates. Please read the full article. You can find the link below. There certainly are a lot of variables but we should celebrate this recognition, the students and staff that make it happen. When you are tired of us talking about real world experiences, connections, standards, etc…this is where we are headed…straight to opportunity and success for all students now and in the future. Our goal is to provide the tools and resources students need to make solid decisions, learn from mistakes, and use it all to guide them as lifelong learners. Go Katahdin Middle /High School ….. where staff guide students investigating connections between learning and life! So proud of everyone!! https://www.pressherald.com/2022/04/26/greely-high-school-named-best-in-maine-by-u-s-news-and-world-report/?fbclid=IwAR0uiB6Td9klawwvkF9qEZLEQ8zAEHVc5Fs3HXuHVsmGiwum9wSZAq9aeis link

March 14th was National “Write Your Story Day.” Middle school students honored this event by writing their own stories using a technology platform called padlet. Everyone has a story to tell. It has been a part of our human existence from the beginning of time. One of the best ways to pass on our major life events to posterity is to document them. This autobiographical project gave students the opportunity to celebrate their uniqueness that they all possess, that distinguishing factor that sets them all apart—their story.
In April 14&15 students conducted Student Led Conference with their parents and guardians. During this time students shared evidence of the six guiding principles explaining along the way how and why pieces of work demonstrate the principles. Our attendance was exceptional! 9 HS need to complete the process and 6 MS students need to meet. There are a number of reasons why they are important to participate in and we appreciate everyone adjusting plans to make this happen. The picture below is a MS student waking mom though his slideshow presentation. We’ll done everyone!!
