Baseball News from Mr. Williamson:

Our baseball team finished first in the South D baseball Heal points. Our first playoff game was with Valley who we beat handily. Next we played Buckfield and after a very shaky first inning we settled down and also beat them by the mercy rule. Our next opponent will be #2 Richmond. It seems as though our way forward in sports is always to beat Richmond. We have played them in soccer, basketball, softball and baseball. We have won some and they have won some. We will meet them Tuesday, June 13th  at 6:30 at St Joes College, a field familiar to both teams.  

Go Vikings in the quest for number 3!

Save the Date! 7th Grade Social Studies Exhibition at the Penobscot Marine Museum’s Merithew House

posted May 24, 2017, 6:07 AM by Susan Capwell   [ updated May 26, 2017, 6:20 AM ]

Kim Laplant’s 7th Grade social studies class is taking their study of Maine history hyper local, with a project-based unit called the “Meaning of Penobscot Bay.” Students are working in groups to answer the driving question, “What role does Penobscot Bay play in the lives of individuals and communities?”, examining the past and present impact of the Bay. As they pursue their research, they are thinking about what the future of the region might hold and analyzing various aspects of the history, economy, geography, and arts and culture of the Penobscot Bay region.

Students examine paintings at the PMM

With the Penobscot Marine Museum only a short walk away, students have been able to take advantage of the rich history right in their backyard. They have already had a guided tour and research session at the Museum’s Merithew House, where they learned more about the history and economics of the Bay, and spent time examining the design of the different museum exhibits.

With support of Technology Integrator Susan Capwell and the school’s STEAM Lab makerspace, students will be crafting multimedia exhibits that will present their answers to the driving question. Exhibits will include physical objects, digital presentations, interactive elements, and explanatory text that will convey their group’s understandings of how the Bay has shaped people and communities in the region.


Most excitingly, the culminating exhibition will be held in the Merithew House at Penobscot Marine Museum on Thursday, June 15th, from 6-7pm, and is open to the public.

Come see the Snow White Variety Show!

posted Apr 4, 2017, 9:10 AM by Susan Capwell

SES and SDMS are presenting The Snow White Variety Show this weekend, April 7th & 8th, at 6:30pm. Adults are $5, students are $3. All proceeds benefit the RSU 20 Afterschool program. 

Pioneer Drama describes the show this way: "All the fun of just about every TV-show genre you can imagine is jam-packed into this wild and fast-paced comedy!  Your audience becomes the live studio audience on a talk show, Real Talk with Fairytale Legends, where the seven dwarves tell the story of Snow White as the Fairytale Players bring it to life.  As each new dwarf takes a turn telling part of Snow White’s famous story in his or her own unique voice, the players’ re-enactment shifts to match the style and personality of that particular dwarf.  At any given moment, the story can be anything — romance, comedy, home improvement show, suspense, Western, epic poetry, mystery, cooking show, stand-up routine, or blockbuster action movie!"
