So This Happened at MSSM!

Snacks, drinks, and MURDER! What could be more fun? We had an evening of excitement as the group of students and our guest, Mr. McCartney, acted out their roles with excellent and ridiculous accents. Scandals arose, false identities were revealed, and yet no one was able to guess the true murderer. In the end it turns out it was done for the love of family, such bonds are strong indeed.

On Wednesday afternoon we quickly and cheerfully loaded into the van, dressed for a night of skiing.  After an enjoyable ride with good laughs, a beautiful sunset, and plenty of classic rock, we arrived to find the mountain unexpectedly dark and the parking lot empty.  Unbeknownst to us, they had made a schedule change since the previous week.

Hello MSSM Community!

During J-term, the RIs try to host fun activities for students to fill the evenings that would usually be spent doing homework. There has been meringue making, Cupcake Wars hosted by Cooking Club, and Free Rice Night hosted by the Key Club. Additionally, there have been several trips a week to ice skate or to go to Caribou or Presque Isle for dinner.

On the 11th of January, a group of students went to the Northern Lanes Bowling Alley in Presque Isle. Instead of traditional 10 pin bowling, Northern Lanes Bowling Alley offers candlepin bowling. For some of the students this was their first time candlepin bowling. As the candlepin balls are much smaller with no finger holes it took some time for them to find their groove. The students adjusted quickly and they soon started to have an exciting time. Although there were no strikes, there were quite a few spares! All in all, the kids had a good time. Everyone enjoyed a quike bite to eat at Taco Bell before heading back to campus.

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays as much as I did. The MSSM offices were shut down for the week but we are now gearing up for J-Term and spring semester.

Rosters are now finalized for J-Term and enrollments can be viewed in Infinite Campus through portal. As there may be variation from class to class, students are encouraged to note the  J-Term Class Schedule for start times and location for class. Note that there will be morning snack in the first floor hall at approximately 10:30 each morning.

Hello MSSM Community!

We’re almost at Christmas Break, and students are part way through their mid-year exams already. Almost everyone is looking forward to the three week Winter Break. Last Sunday was Study Day, a four hour long study session where students have to be on campus studying, either in the dorms or the Academic Building.

On Saturday, December 1st a number of students attended the 5th Annual Festival of Trees at the Northern Maine Community College. This event consisted of approximately 70 wonderfully decorated trees with gifts that are raffled off to the community. The consensus among the group was that the Harry Potter themed display was our favorite.

Tuesday night was a busy night on campus full of fun activities.  Students were busy playing floor hockey, outside playing in the snow, socializing, and also enjoying a nice warm cup of Hot Chocolate.  We all would like to send out a huge thank you to the Parents Association for the Hot Chocolate supplies and all of the other donations that were sent up after Thanksgiving break.  We really appreciate all of the support!

On November 9th the movie V for Vendetta was shown in the lower lounge. This movie has become a yearly tradition, normally watched on November 5th due to the fact that that date is important to the plot of the movie. However, even though we showed the movie four days late, we still had a great turnout even though a big percentage of the student body were already off campus for other school events.

The first real snow has fallen in Limestone. However, most teachers live only a street over on Trafton Avenue, so classes are almost never canceled. This weekend, the VEX team The Electric Boogaloos traveled to a meet at John Bapst Memorial High School. Despite some technical difficulties, they were tournament champions.

This evening we hosted the game show "Family Feud" in the lower lounge. 12 students attended to compete for bragging rights. Some of the surveys that were in tonight's game included "Name a famous wizard", "Name a country with a name that starts with the letter A" and "How long does the typical New Years resolution last?". The students had a good time as well as the staff that attended.

Community Members,

The Infinite Campus portal closed on Friday in preparation for the second formal fall grade report. Like the Progress Reports, Academic Updates will provide a snapshot of performance to date through the first two-thirds of the semester.  This will include an effort grade, a letter grade, and a narrative for any student who has a grade at “C” or below or who has dropped a letter grade since Progress Reports.

On November 4th, six students and I went to the Forum in Presque Isle to go ice skating.  Ice skating has always been a popular trip and fills up pretty quickly. All the students had fun skating despite the fact a few of them took a couple falls. The fries at the snack bar seemed to be pretty popular with this group. When asked if they’d like to do it again, they enthusiastically said yes and asked when the next trip would be.

Upper C had their wing night. We played donut bobbing and it looked like a lot of fun.  For snacks we had pumpkin pie, apple pie, and made caramel  We had a couple ladies stay up  to watch the original Ghostbusters. We had some ladies who needed to leave wing night early to get a good nights sleep before their State Cross-Country race the next day.

On October 27th, some of the students got the chance to go into Caribou to go thrift shopping.  The students love trips like these because they get the chance to find items not normally found in the local Walmart and Mall, at a great price!  The students also found this trip to be very convenient because on the same day was the Halloween dance and they needed to find last minute costumes and/or items to go along with their costumes.
