Annual Asbestos Notification

posted Sep 17, 2018, 5:10 AM by Vincent Vanier

In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) in May 1989, we performed inspections of our school buildings for asbestos-containing building materials. The inspection findings and the required asbestos management plans are on file at the office of the Principal, at the Madawaska Middle/High School.

 The EPA requires all schools (K through 12) to perform re-inspections of the asbestos materials every three years. On August 7, 2018 a State Certified, licensed inspector performed these inspections. The results were reviewed by an accredited management planner and recommendations were made to continue to safely manage each asbestos material remaining in our buildings.

In accordance with AHERA regulations any remaining asbestos containing materials in the school buildings are checked on a six-month surveillance program. These materials remain in good condition and we will continue to manage them in place as recommended by the accredited management planner. 

The results of the inspection and removal work are on file in the management plan in the office of the Principal, 135 7th Avenue, Madawaska, ME. These documents are available for viewing during normal school hours (8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.). The Asbestos Program Manager, Paul Chasse, is available to answer any questions you may have about asbestos in our buildings at (207) 728-3371, ext. 2409 or via e-mail at pchasse@madawaskaschools.org

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.

Spelling Bee

posted Feb 28, 2018, 11:37 AM by Vincent Vanier   [ updated Feb 28, 2018, 11:51 AM ]

Two seventh grade students came out on top of Tuesday’s spelling bee at Madawaska Middle/High School.  Taylor Pelletier won the bee, successfully spelling “millinery,” according to MMHS teacher Matt Rossignol.  Hailey Blanchette was the runner-up.

Both students advanced to The County spelling bee held at Fox Auditorium on the campus of the University of Maine at Fort Kent, on Feb. 8th.  Taylor Pelletier then won that competition and will represent Aroostook County at the state spelling bee, with a chance to go to nationals in Washington, D.C.

A total of 13 students from grades six, seven and eight participated in Madawaska’s spelling bee this year. Along with Rossignol, fellow teachers Bonny Tingley, Cai Bouley, and Connie Vanier organized the event. The two judges this year were Vincent Vanier, the department’s technology coordinator, and MMHS teacher Whitney Bouchard. Taylor Pelletier then went on to become the Aroostook County Spelling Bee Champion and will be representing us at the state spelling bee on March 24th in Portland.

On 01GeoBee/30/18 Madawaska School Department completed their 30th annual National Geographic Bee competition and 7th grader Cole McCraith was crowned the champion. After winning MSD's bee, Cole was administered an online test and hopefully will qualify for the state competition at the University of Maine at Farmington later this spring. Cole was MSD's winner last year and he and his family traveled to U.M. at Farmington to compete against 99 other students for the Maine National Geographic title. Cole is ready to go again and told his dad, Sean, that he wants to win MSD's Geography bee next year too so they can travel to Farmington again to compete. Good luck Cole.
