The use of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) operational framework for improving student outcomes continues at Somerset Valley Middle School (SVMS) in Hartland. The staff at the school acknowledges throughout each day those students who achieve specific academic and behavioral goals. During the month of October, each time a student was “caught” exemplifying one of the goals, his or her name was placed into a jar for an end-of-month drawing for special October treats. The staff wishes to congratulate the lucky winners of the draw, as well as all those students who received the Panther Paw Pride acknowledgements in October. The school wishes to recognize the Four Seasons Floral and Gifts for its contribution to this program, as well as to all the school staff who continue their donations. Pictured are seventh and eighth graders from the Somerset Valley Middle School Donovan Knight, Xavier Goodine, and Michael Fletcher.

Maine Maritime Academy’s annual Academic Achievement Awards banquet was held on Thursday, November 5th, to honor the scholarly accomplishments of students and the service of faculty.
The late Henry A. Scheel of Rockport, Maine was one of America’s most respected naval architects and yacht designers. During his long and distinguished career, Mr. Scheel produced more than 250 complete designs which have been utilized by builders of sailboats and other craft in the U.S. and Europe. To express his high regard for Maine Maritime Academy, Mr. Scheel left funds in 1994 to permanently endow scholarships for students in the three upper classes who best exemplify intellectual curiosity and achievement; therefore, the Scheel Scholars were created.
Nine Scheel Scholars were honored at the Maine Maritime Academy’s annual Academic Achievement Awards banquet including, Tyler Engelhardt, Class of 2016. He is a Power Engineering Technology major from Pittsfield.
