About: What makes Maine, Maine? The beautiful State of Maine is composed of rich natural resources (forests, farms, coast, and mountains) and our close-knit communities. We want our students to become involved citizens within these communities, understanding the history and importance of place. Here are some of the stories and connections that are being made across our state between schools and communities.
