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.

Circus Field Trip Change

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.…/anah-temple-plans-54th-shrin…/
