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.

MMHS Laptop Take Home 17-18

MLTI
Students at Madawaska Middle/High School who wish to take their laptop home at night need to have the following form filled out and signed by their parent or guardian.  One stipulation to the take home policy is that all bills must be paid. This is not required if students will not be taking them home.  Students will need to bring payment ($35 for a single student or $50 for families with 2 or more students).  Students at MMHS are very fortunate to have these learning tools at their disposal, so special care needs to be taken.  Students wishing to take their laptops home on the first day of school should bring their payment to the main office.  Families paying by check should make it out to "Madawaska Middle/High School."
