SMHS Students Hike Cadillac Mountain

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park, fifteen Sumner Memorial High School students and three teachers hiked Cadillac Mountain last Friday (April 29). The hikers started in the early morning hours, donning headlamps provided by our 21st Century Grant. They reached the top in time to watch the sunrise.

RSU 24 receives an Award for participating in Maine Harvest Lunch Week

RSU 24 schools participated in the “Maine Harvest Lunch Week” in September.

Maine harvested foods were served at all of our schools. Items on the menu included Maine raised beef, Aroostook County potatoes, fruits and vegetables from local farmers (including corn on the cob, apples and blueberries), Maine lobster and Maine milk. Students participated in food preparation such as shucking the corn. We look forward to participating next year and will continue to incorporate local farm foods in our menu whenever possible.

In recognition of our participation the District has received a Farm to School Champion Award from the Maine Department of Education Child Nutrition.

As stated in the RSU 24 strategic plan, we will utilize a ‘farm to school’ perspective whenever possible.
