Winter Carnival 18-19
The snow is deep.  The days are short.  The air is cold.  All of this and to top it off, the students need a change of pace to keep things interesting and entertaining.  How do we do that?  Winter Carnival 2018-2019 of course!  See the attached PDF file for a list of the new ideas that have been generated.  This year's theme is Maine Landmarks.  Good luck to the students in grades 9-12!

This year's activities include but are not limited to creating panels, theme days, a competition day, and of course the treasure chest!  Treasure chest clues will be posted daily at 2:45pm.  This year's theme days include Blue & White Day, Season's Day, Formal Dress Day, and the new Historical Person Day!

Good luck to all the classes!  Let's have some fun!

Pride of Madawaska Band joins UMaine band for halftime-performance
Jessica Potila, SJVT / FhF Staff Writer • November 2, 2018

MADAWASKA, Maine — The Pride of Madawaska Band had a rare opportunity to play before thousands of fans at the Harold Alfond Sports Stadium in Orono on Oct. 6, when 25 students joined the Pride of Maine Black Bear Marching Band.

The budding musicians joined the more experienced university band members during halftime of a football game between the Black Bears and Villanova.  Valley Unified music teacher Taylor Martin, director of the Pride of Madawaska Band, accompanied the students.

“We went down to play with that band to gain experience, and to see how band members work together,” Martin said of the field trip to Orono. “The UMO band has a lot of spunk and energy, and they are eager to mentor and encourage younger players. They are a great example of positivity for the students.”

The half-time performance may have motivated the Maine Black Bears who defeated Villanova 13-10 with an exciting 52-yard field goal as time expired.

Message Received

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!
