The Book Character Pumpkin Contest votes are in! The top overall winner was Oliver with all 12 goats as his prize for Pikachu, the teacher winner was Mrs. Gilbert with Wild Robot pumpkins, and the Facebook winner was Melanie with her book and stuffy prize for the Rainbow Fish! Thanks to all the students and staff for participating! If you want your pumpkin back, please pick it up by end of the week or they’ll be sent around the community for display! The Nibbles pumpkin was decomposing so we’re using it as a library display to watch it decompose!

In 2018 through early 2019, a stakeholder group in RSU #34 led a community discussion about aspirations and opportunities for our community’s middle school students. This process included a community forum, community survey, and reporting to the School Board. This fall, RSU #34 is conducting a more compact process to confirm that these are still the priorities of our community. We will use this information to inform our planning/budgeting for future years, as well as to inform our applications for grant funds such as ESSER/ARP. We invite you to complete this brief survey, and/or to join us at an open discussion at Leonard Middle School on Monday, Oct. 24th, 5:30 - 6:30 PM. If you wish, please complete this survey by October 31st, 2022. If you would like to be more involved, please contact Dr. Gert Nesin, LMS Principal, at !
