lifetouchDue to a mistake with lining up the names and photos, the school pictures from Lifetouch will be delayed a few weeks while we get things sorted out.  You should see them in a few weeks.  Packets with your child's photos and options will be sent home when we get them like they have been in the past.  We apologize for the delay, but we've seen the photo samples and the results are precious!  Thanks.

Parents may have inadvertently received a message mistakenly stating that school will be dismissed early on Wednesday.  This message was mistakenly sent to Madawaska parents, and it should not have happened.  It was a very innocent mistake, and we all make them. 
Madawaska's schools will operate with normal school hours on Wednesday, October 31st.  If you would like more information on how the error happened, you can check that out at:  We're sorry if this caused any confusion!

MES Mock Election

posted Oct 22, 2018, 4:18 AM by Vincent Vanier   [ updated Oct 22, 2018, 4:20 AM ]

On Friday, October 19, Mrs. Tingley's sixth graders hosted a mock election for the position of Maine's governor.  Earlier in the week, Mrs. Tingley's sixth graders presented information about Maine's voting laws, political parties and the candidates to all students at MES.  Students were then better informed when they participated in the mock election.  In the photos you're able to see students being escorted to the polls, being directed to the appropriate registration table, ballot clerks and security guards responsible for the super-secure ballot box.  The students' winning candidate was Mr. Shawn Moody.  The ballot box was constructed by the late Reginald Ouellette of Frenchville and donated by his wife, Mme Bea Ouellette.  Photos were contributed by Mrs. Gina Jandreau's fourth grade class.  Thank you to all who participated.

Penny Carnival

Students participated in a Penny Carnival on the afternoon of June 7th.  Students paid pennies to play various games to benefit the physical education program.  Mr. Dan Cyr organized the event with the help of older students.  The older students manned each station for a set period of time and switched so they would have a chance to play as well.  Luckily, the rain held off!  See photos here.
