It's no secret that school budgets are tight, often leaving various programs underfunded. In an effort to devise a creative, low-pressure fund-raising opportunity, Ford launched the Drive 4 UR School test-drive program in 2007. Ford offers a $20 donation for each valid test-drive, up to $6,000 total*, which can be used for sports, booster clubs, music programs and the many other miscellaneous expenses associated with running a school.  
The MMHS athletic booster club will be holding a Ford Drive for your School event to raise money.  This will take place Saturday May 26th from 9:00-2:00 at the Madawaska Multi Purpose building.  Come try a brand new car to help cure your spring fever!!!  Anyone wishing to save themselves some time may download the PDF document below and fill it out in advance.

Shrine Circus Change

posted May 3, 2018, 7:47 AM by Vincent Vanier

circusMadawaska Elementary School has traditionally sent students to the Shrine Circus in Presque Isle as a field trip. This year, many 5th and 6th grade students and parents expressed concern about previously scheduled dance recitals and TRIO events that would prevent them from going on the field trip. In order to accommodate the situation, it was decided that students will instead receive a free admission ticket to this weekend's circus at school on Friday.  https://fiddleheadfocus.com/…/anah-temple-plans-54th-shrin…/
