Vikings Baseball Moves Forward

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.
