On Friday,November 8, the 2019 Maine YMCA Youth and Government program kicked off at the State Capitol in Augusta. The program, designed to provide Maine students an opportunity to practice democracy by modeling the Maine legislative process, takes part in the Maine State House and the neighboring Cross Office Building. Maine Governor Janet Mills welcomed students, including MSSM's twenty-two member delegation, from across the state, as she highlighted the importance of civic engagement, public service, and representative democracy.
On Sunday and Monday, November 10 & 11, prospective students and their families came to Limestone to see what makes MSSM the second best high school in the nation.

In June this year, a group from MSSM took a Journey Down Under to New Zealand, Australia, and Hawaii for fifteen days. The group was led by myself, Mariah Havens, a Residential Instructor, and Amber Jeskey, International Coordinator. Three students were on the trip: Ian Ammerman ('19, Benedicta), Katherine Taddeo ('19, Waterville) and Emilie Morocco ('20, Farmington). We were paired up with groups from Michigan, Texas, and Utah, bringing our group's total to forty two. Our trip was filled with so much from learning about different cultures, experiencing different foods, and having once in a lifetime experiences. Our tour director, Shane even offered us some extra excursions in New Zealand and Australia.
What a great season for our boys and girls cross country teams!
Great performances by our boys and girls teams!
