MSAD #51 District Newsletter - June 2, 2022


From the Superintendent

jeff porterThis is one of the most exciting weeks of the school year as we celebrate the outgoing senior class. The Class of 2022 has been practicing their marching skills, finishing up senior projects, was treated to a special breakfast, will be cheered by all other students during Friday's Senior Walk, receive accolades during the Candlelight/Class Night ceremony on Friday evening, graduate with pomp and circumstance on Sunday at the amphitheater, paraded down Cumberland's Main Street, and whisked off to the culminating Project Graduation festivities. What a wonderful way to finish up in style after 13 years as a student (and the most challenging last two school years imaginable). We will miss you, Class of 2022, and best wishes for what's next!
