It was great to have parents and board members on campus for our Friends and Family Weekend. In addition to the Concert, Sports Awards, Soiree, MSSM committee and board meetings, I attended the Parents’ Association meeting and I had a productive meeting with Tom Gilley, President of the Parents’ Association.  I continue to be impressed by the talents and commitments of our students and our community at large. I am also grateful for the conversations and the feedback and I look forward to working to further strengthen our programs and procedures.

I hope this update finds you warm on this very cold March day. Thankfully the sun is shining in northern Maine. As we all know, it is going to be a busy weekend on campus. We are excited to have many parents and board members visiting.

Thank you families who have done an excellent job communicating ahead of time any plans to take your child off campus, or give your child permission to go with another family. Receiving these emails in advance is essential.

I hope this update finds you all well. Things are going well within MSSM's Residential Life Program this semester.

I continue to be very proud of both the students and ResLife staff for their willingness to work together to make life at MSSM healthy, safe, fun, and dare I say, exciting at times!
