We have arrived at the second week in October already! The mornings have a chill, frost is on the pumpkin, and the leaves are beautiful. I am very pleased to report that Jonesport-Beals High School is off to an outstanding start! The freshmen are settling in, the seniors can't believe it's their senior year, and everyone is striving to do his/her best work. The volleyball team is very competitive, and the soccer team is in the playoff hunt. Ryan Alley is a member of the DAC All-star golf team and is headed to the individual state championship this week. Finally, keep running cross country team.
Next Tuesday, October 15, a few staff members will attend the Harvest of Ideas in Machias, one will attend a specialized workshop in organization, and most of the staff will do professional development at JBHS.
No school, Monday, October 14. Traditionally known as Columbus Day or now named Indigenous Peoples day if you prefer.
