Congratulations to the OTHS students who shared their collaborative research at the GLOBE Science Symposium! Jacob, Zak, Amanda, and Brad joined students from the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, answering questions from peers and professionals about their research. The students are mentored in this research by Mr. Lindsey, Mr. Murphy, and Ms. Crabtree. On her first-ever trip to Boston, Amanda brought home an award for her poster and presentation…what will she do on her second trip?

NO SCHOOL TODAY MONDAY APRIL 8TH IN RSU 34
While the track of the impending storm is not completely clear, it is clear we will deal with snow or a snow/rain mix tomorrow morning. We will be using the new notification system linked with Apptegy our website provider for the first time. The RSU #34 app can be downloaded in the Google Play Store or the iTunes store. We had hoped to have the opportunity to use the new system with some low impact notifications for testing but it appears we will not have that opportunity. Please monitor our website (www.rsu34.org) and WABI TV as a sure way to know the status of schools opening on Monday. Please share this information within your social media network.

The Leonard Middle Chorus in Old Town, Maine, is using music as a way to support cancer patients, survivors, and caretakers. These are just a few of the many talented young musicians who have been hard at work preparing to spend a day at a recording studio in early March. While there, the LMS Chorus will record four songs, all of which fit their chosen theme of “Songs for the Journey”. These beautiful songs, each with a message of unity/support/strength, will be available for purchase on a flash drive for $12. All proceeds from sales will be donated to EMMC’s Champion the Cure to support local cancer research. Those interested may purchase a drive for themselves, or have the option to purchase one as a gift to a cancer patient at the LaFayette Cancer Center in Brewer, Maine. If you would like to purchase a drive for yourself, or one to be sent to LaFayette, please contact the group’s teacher, Shianne Priest, at Shianne.Priest@rsu34.org. Thank you!
