Due to the weather, the 7th Grade Laudholm Farm trip is going to be postponed until Friday, June 14. Please make sure that your student wears appropriate clothing, including comfortable footwear such as sneakers. Also, he or she should have insect repellent, sunscreen, and plenty of water. If your student ordered a school lunch ahead of time, it will be provided. If not, he or she will need to come with a lunch and snacks. Cell phones wouldn’t be needed as Friday is still considered a school day and school rules still apply. If you need to contact your child, please call the Sanford Junior High School office at 207 324 3114, and they will make contact with our group. As always, thank you for being such a supportive community to your Spartans!

On January 31st, 2019, Sanford High School and Regional Technical Center hosted its first ever, “Celebrating Partnerships” event in the Agora Presentation Area of our new school. The event was part celebratory and part networking and focused on bringing together our school and community resources to create dialogue about ways to partner, such as: internships, job shadows, business tours, guest speakers, and ELOs. Community partners helped provide insight on necessary “real world” competencies and the skills they are looking for in their workers and school staff provided insight on curriculum and students’ skills and talents. The event was funded through monies awarded to Sanford Regional Technical Center (SRTC) by MELMAC Education Foundation through a Systems Innovation grant. Several local businesses and SRTC program instructors were present allowing for productive and fun collaboration time. Many thanks to Plants Plus for designing and providing the beautiful floral arrangements, Above & Beyond Catering for the delicious food and drink, and MELMAC Education Foundation for the monetary support.
