Congratulations to seven 5th grade students from Crescent Park and Woodstock for their participation in the 2021-2022 District II Elementary Festival! This regional festival has three honors ensembles: band, chorus, and orchestra. Students are nominated from all over western Maine, and if they are accepted, they spend several months rehearsing their music before the festival. Participating students from CPS were River Otten, Braden Scott, Sydney van Buren, and Meadow Wilber. WES participating students were Oscar Carter, Claire Krech, and William Johnston. Congratulations on a wonderful performance and a job well done!

Video of Monday’s SAD44 School Board Meeting - The following link will take you to a Western Hills Access Television recording of Monday nights’s meeting of the MSAD 44 School Board. Please note that following the Pledge of Allegiance, the recording inadvertently switched over to regular programming for a short period of time. It picks up again at approximately the 8 minute mark as the Citizen Comments section of the agenda was underway. Thank you to Josh Morton and Westen Hills Access Television for providing us with this link in advance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABS947cwSkQ
