Under the leadership of MSK teacher, Mary Hebert, more than fifteen poems written by our middle school students have been selected for publication. As a result, the middle school has been named a Summer 2017 Poetic Achievement Honor School. Hundreds of schools entered this national contest and only a small number were so honored. RSU 21 is the only Maine school district to have achieved this award in 2017.
The KHS Art Club participated in - the "Drab to Fab" project for the Animal Welfare Society in West Kennebunk @AWSKennebunk. Some art club students volunteered to paint shelters in an effort to transform them from their "drab" gray primer to more "fab," visually engaging shelters, which are provided for local feral cat colonies.
KHS students completed 2 of the 8 shelters which are featured on their website, "Jungle Cats" and "Rainbow Stripes." You can view them here! https://animalwelfaresociety.org/services/feral-cats/drab-to-fab/
Nearly 500 people filled the KHS Theater this morning as the Wreaths Across America convoy stopped along their voyage to Arlington National Cemetery to lay over 1.2 million wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers. RSU 21 students made wreaths, drew cards, presented honorary wreaths to Veterans, and sang patriotic songs to share in the Wreaths Across America mission to "Remember, Honor, Teach."
