IAN STEBBINS RECEIVES MPA PRINCIPAL'S AWARD Farmingdale, Maine: Ian Stebbins of Farmingdale, a senior at Hall-Dale High School, has been selected to receive the 2021 Principal's Award, Principal Mark Tinkham announced today. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals' Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior's academic achievement and citizenship. Ian, the son of Mark and Karen Stebbins, is the last of the 3 Stebbins boys to graduate from Hall-Dale. Tinkham commented “Ian has left an indelible mark on the Hall-Dale community. His presence in the classroom, the pitch, and the court have been a constant positive. At the start of the pandemic Ian noticed that his peers needed greater academic support. In his role as president of the National Honor Society he helped launch virtual tutorial sessions for students in grades 6-12 hosted by NHS members. His involvement and care for others has not gone unnoticed.” As a three sport varsity athlete he has also captained the soccer and basketball teams. Ian is the “dad” on the team. Although winning is nice, he concentrates his efforts on supporting younger or lesser skilled players to become better players and team accomplishments. Although earning individual honors Ian’s focus and love of the game shines in team accomplishments including a couple of trips to the MVC Championship Game in two sports (winning a title) and earning runner up status this past year in a COVID related tournament. Ian was the recipient of the University of Rochester Bausch and Lomb Book Award (awarded to a student who is excels in math and science); a boatload of Mountain Valley Conference athletic awards; All-State recognition, National Honor Society; a 4 year member of Key Club, the Outing Club and has attended various leadership conferences. He is a true school ambassador. Stebbins will attend Bowdoin College in the fall as part of the Class of 2025. Ian Stebbins, Principal Tinkham and other award winners and their principals will participate in a Live Virtual Scholarship Drawing Event on Friday, May 14 at 1:00 p.m. Ten $1,000 scholarships will be drawn in the names of former Maine principals and MPA Executive Directors: Horace O. McGowan, Richard W. Tyler, and Richard A. Durost. The Principal's Award is presented in more than 100 Maine public and private high schools by member principals of the MPA, the professional association which represents Maine's school administrators.

Thanks for understanding during these trying times! Mark

Dear Hall-Dale Community: I am looking for a host family in the Hall-Dale district for Beka, an exchange student who is attending Hall-Dale this year. He is currently living with a temporary “welcome” family in Richmond. Could anyone open their home to Beka as his host family? Or do you have friends or neighbors who could? Hosting is a wonderful opportunity to share American culture and values with a teenager from another country, while also having an opportunity to learn about another culture and another part of the world. Host families do not have to have high-school aged kids (or any kids). Beka is 17 years old, and comes from the country Georgia. He loves sports and is currently playing soccer at Hall-Dale. He wants to play basketball this winter, and he also enjoys swimming and training at the gym. In his free time, Beka enjoys listening to music (Led Zepplin and Bon Jovi are some of his favorite bands) and he enjoys watching shows like Game of Thrones and Prison Break. Beka is looking forward to celebrating American holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving with his host family, and would also like to teach you about his country and culture. He likes younger kids, and he has no allergies. Volunteer host families provide their student with a bed, three meals a day, local transportation, and a warm welcome as part of the family. Exchange students can share a bedroom with a same sex host sibling within 4 years of their age. Exchange students have their own spending money and have illness and accident insurance provided by their sponsoring organization (in this case, Greenheart Exchange). To learn more, please contact: Liana Knight, email@example.com or 207-737-9781. Many thanks!

Sr. Capstone Presentations are tomorrow!

If you would be willing to bring something, here is a link to a google doc where you can sign up: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CkBqaH1ymWAZZ9f1OhiP3yl9vo0eg0lc7-ZHZhqNJyE/edit?usp=sharing

The Winter Banquet will feature a dessert and fruit buffet in the cafeteria followed by coaches awards etc. and then break out groups according to your respective sports for a recap of the season. Locations for the break outs will be given at the end of the ceremony. We are asking for dessert and/or fruit donations from families attending. Please keep in mind that you do not need to supply enough for all attendees (i.e. 10 brownies not 50). Boosters will be providing beverages and supporting the athletes and coaches with their awards. If your donation comes in a dish or pan you wish to keep, please retrieve it before the breakouts.If you have questions or are willing to help with set-up, please contact Rani Sheaffer at email@example.com.

The Hallowell Fire Department is organizing a Fire Department fundraiser in the form of a massive bonfire of Christmas trees, on January 5 at 5:15 down at Granite City Park by the waterfront. The idea is that people get rid of their trees by paying the Fire Dept. $10 to throw their tree on the growing pile. Tree drop off is that day from 3-5:00. And then they set off a massive (hopefully) fire. They have arranged for the Taiko drummers to add to the excitement.
With the icy road conditions the entire RSU has a 2 hour delay
Halldale Schools are in session, on time this morning. It is only Monmouth that has a delay. Please drive carefully and enjoy your Friday!

Odyssey of the Mind at HDMS Odyssey of the Mind is a creative, problem solving program. Student teams work on a long-term problem for months which involves science, engineering, drama, art, music and performance. They also practice spontaneous problems, short hands-on and verbal problems that require teamwork and creativity. This program is focused on student leadership, working as a team and creativity. It is also a lot of fun. Coaches guide students, but students are in charge of everything from building vehicles, to making costumes, to setting schedules. More information is here: http://www.meodyssey.org/ The organizational meeting will take place next Tuesday, (October 23) after school, in the library.
Are you a creator, a problem solver, and someone who loves a challenge? Are Legos and robotics among your favorite things? If so, the First Lego League Robotics team is right up your alley!
