In order to make up a few snow days we will have school on Saturday, March 30, from 8 to noon, as well as converting the April 3rd and May 8th TT days to full days for students.
The last student day of the year will be an early release for students.
If we have any more snow days then we will have potential makeup times on the Saturdays of April 27th and May 4th. All Saturday days are 8-12.

MILO — Penquis Valley High School senior Cymeria Robshaw has been named to the MTCCA Indoor Track & Field 2019 All-State Team. Robshaw is one of 14 First Team members representing Classes A and B from across the state.
At the Class B championship Robshaw won the 55-meter dash in a time of 7.33 seconds to finish the season undefeated in the event at Maine competitions. Robshaw also won the Class B triple jump title at a distance of 36 feet, 1.75 inches. She came in second in the long jump at 18-03.75.
Two weeks later Robshaw finished second in the long jump at the New England championship with a leap of 18-08.25. She also came in 13th in the 55-meter prelims at 7.47 seconds.
The pair of indoor titles followed two outdoor state championships for Robshaw. As a junior last spring she won both the triple and long jumps at the Class C state meet. She jumped respective distances of 34-10.50 and 17-02 in June. At the 2018 Class C championship, Robshaw also came in third at 100 meters.
Robshaw plans to continue her track career at Division II Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts.

Coming to the Milo Free Public Library Wednesday, April 17 from 6-7 p.m. Ed Rice former journalist, college instructor and author of “Baseball’s First Indian” published in 2003 is coming to discuss the legacies of Louis Sockalexis, the first known Native American to play professional baseball. The talk is in support of a special project to raise awareness about why this largely forgotten Maine historical figure is worthy of such respect. Hope to see you there.
Kathy’s pick is “I frequently tramped 8 or 10 miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines by Henry David Thoreau.” Come and check out the selected variety and you may find a new author.
