  1. The 100th Day of School - postponed by several days of snow - was finally held on February 17. Rowe students celebrated in many ways - all related to counting to 100. This year, the students and staff at Rowe donated pennies totaling $235 to the Maine Muscular Dystrophy Association. Jared Conant, student at HMS and Maine Muscular Dystrophy Goodwill Ambassador, accepted the donation on behalf of MDA.
  2. March 2 was Read Across America Day - as well as the birthday of Dr. Seuss - two great things that go great together.
  3. March is Youth Art Month at the Portland Museum of Art ( https://www.portlandmuseum.org/learn/youth-art-month ). Several Yarmouth student-artists will have their work on display at PMA from March 1 - April 3. The Grand Opening is March 11 and is open to the public.
  4. Yarmouth students make wonderful music together - and with students from around the state - in a variety of settings!
