Maine Maritime Academy Adventures:  7th and 8th grade had a great trip today to Castine to visit Maine Maritime Academy. We had an opportunity to tour some of the facility and the State of Maine. We began in the tank research room, where we heard about and saw student research projects that are going on at this time. It made me think about trying to get some marine research going on in our little tank here at AVS.
We were treated to a lunch at the school dining facility and then heard from the waterfront director about the importance of shipping in all our lives. It is amazing to think about all the "stuff" that is shipped around the world and at Maine Maritime you can learn the ropes and be apart of this industry. There are many other industries that they offer education in but clearly the science and shipping are a focus.

To end the day we had a tour of the State of Maine which is their large training ship that the students do two cruises on while they are at MMA, one in their freshman year and one in their junior year.

Moving on to local news: Remember that our last home soccer games are this week. Wednesday the game is with Lincolnville at 3:45 and Friday is with Vinalhaven at 1:30. 

Looks like September is drawing to a close this week. Where does the time go?

8th grade parent meeting in a few hours. 6:30 to be exact.  See you then.
