Thank you all who donated to the Teacher Conference Day dinner!   If you haven’t already done so, please pick up your dishes.  Check with the Main Office.


CLASS OF 2018 PARENTS - WE NEED YOUR INPUT.......As the Project Graduation Committee begins planning for graduation week activities and securing venues, we have polled the students on their interests and ideas for graduation night activities as well as other activities during the week.  Now we need some parent input from you!  Please complete the attached survey regarding your level of interest in attending a senior-parent dinner on the Thursday night prior to graduation.  We would like 100% response rate as having an accurate count is important.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/67SPKWJ If you have any questions or cannot access the survey, please contact Kim Burke at dandyjosh@comcast.net


Picture Re-take Day:  Monday, October 30th


Help Freeport High School win the School Spirit Challenge!  Together we can fight Hunger in Maine!

We need students to bring in food donations!  Grade level competition has begun! The grade with the most donations will win Frosty's donuts!   The Advisory with the most food donations will get to duct tape a teacher to the wall at the rally.  


WGME13/FOX23's Jeff Peterson will be with us live on air October 20th for our School Spirit Pep Rally from 6-8a.m.

In addition to collecting food, a virtual food drive has been set up. For every $1 we raise equals 5 pounds of food.  The school with the most pounds, wins!  To date we have raised over $3.500!  Thank you!

No one in Maine should be hungry!   Let's show our support for Good Shepherd Food Bank and Freeport Community Services

Contact: Dede Bennell for food donations drop off/pick up and if you want to help at event.    bennelld@rsu5.org
