This is our 25th year as Maine's first residential magnet school. Our dormitory is a converted middle school and has served us well but taking care of our students' quality of life away from home is very important to us as we have come of age. To our great joy, Maine's Senate President, Troy Jackson recently introduced LD 2060, an act authorizing a $10,000.000 dollar bond dedicated to improving dormitory living at our distinguished school.
On an extremely cold Martin Luther King Monday in Fort Kent all the Aroostook county schools traveled Fort Kent for a 4k Nordic classic race followed by a 4k freestyle race. The trails were freshly groomed and in perfect condition to be skied on. The ladies started the classic race later than expected and ended with Dolcie Tanguay finishing second and Shelby Carson finishing 18th. Maddie McCarthy finished 21st with Evyn Lally and Lydian Frost finishing 26th and 27th.
On January 7, 2020 MSSM boys and girls competed in the Ski Meet at the Nordic Heritage Center in Presque Isle. In the girls race, our own Dolcie Tanguay came in first place with Madison McCarthy being the next MSSM finisher coming in 23rd place. Shelby Carson came in 25th place and Evyn Lally was in 30th place. Great effort ladies!

It was a cold and windy day at the Fort Kent Outdoor Center for the first Nordic race of the Winter 19-20 season. With the rain that presented itself a few days prior, the trails were nicely groomed and icy. The race weaved in the woods starting from the lodge and going up and down hills till you reached the top of the ski lift for downhill skiers.
