IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CREDIT RECOVERY:

MCHS  would like to allow students who did not pass a class needed to graduate, an opportunity to make up this class credit during semester 2 of the 2013-14 school year, during  one of their study halls, in the Focus Lab, room 169. This will be starting for some students on Monday, February 10th. The student first must sign out of their study hall, then report to the Focus Lab.  While in the Focus Lab, they will receive academic support and guidance in order to get the previously failing grade up to a “Passing” mark.  Students who will be participating in this program will receive a letter via US Postal Mail.

When the coursework is sufficient enough to bring the previous grade up to passing, the final grade will be changed from an “N” (no credit) to a “P” (passing).

Our goal is to help all students to be successful in school and we hope this program will help students stay on track and focused. If you would like to review current class grades, you may go on to PowerSchool, which is available, online, 24 hours a day. If you need login information, please contact Carol Labbe in the front office (685-4923 x 1038).

MARANACOOK FOOD PANTRY
The new Maranacook Community High School Food Pantry would appreciate your help!  We have recently established a small pantry (to be housed with the Black Bear Boutique) and seek donations of food items or cash in order to help our students.  Cash is most helpful so we can shop for what we find our students can use most easily, but we are grateful for boxes or cans of mac and cheese or other pasta, canned fruit, or other items that would require minimal preparation.  We have already received wonderful support from area businesses, and would like to thank Augusta Fuel Company, J&S Oil, Mulligan's, and Saunders Manufacturing.  We are also grateful for contributions of cash and food from private citizens, including parents of current students, and families of alumni.  Your continued involvement in our school is inspiring.
For further information, or to donate, please contact Cynthia Kuhns (Ed Tech in the high school Media Center) at 685-4923 ext. 1076, or Sandy Hunter in the Health Center, ext. 1033.  As always, thank you so much for helping our school and our community.




NEW! IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ATTENDANCE!!! A reminder to all parents and family members that whenever a student is going to be late to school or absent from school, a parent/guardian should call the school to let us know their child will be tardy or absent that day. To report an absence or tardy, call 685-4923, press 1 for the high school and press 8 for the attendance line. Starting on Monday, 9/9/13, we will be generating phone calls to parents/guardians using School Messenger whenever a student is tardy to homeroom unexcused or absent from school unexcused. These phone calls will be generated at 9:30 am daily for all students who are tardy or absent from school without a phone call or note from home. We will be using the phone number in Powerschool to make these calls, so please notify the front office if there is a different number you would like us to use. Please call Steve DeAngelis or Patricia Stanton if you have any questions about this new process.
