In the early hours of May 25th, Mrs. Johnson and the Class of 2021 embarked on their service trip. A few were bright eyed and wide awake (Fiona) but most were only too happy to board the plane and get back to the serious buisness of sleeping. Senior Gio Alcime handled boarding for his first ever flight like a pro while his seat mate Emmanuel Jacques tried to finesse Mrs. Johnson out of her exit row seat. His attempt was unsuccessful. 😉
To celebrate a strong finish for the 2020-2021 Chemistry Class, students not chillin' up in Acadia with the DMBZ used their chemical prowess to create some 🎶sweeeeet [combuuuuuuustion]🎵. After capturing with a balloon the hydrogen gas produced from a single replacement reaction between an acid and some aluminum foil, students lit the balloon on fire. The reaction was over in the blink of an eye, much like this school year has felt!

Last week, we celebrated the week we wait for all year long--Spirit Week. This is the dress down week, when we finally get to ditch our uniforms! Monday was Monochromatic Monday, where we were to dress in one color but variations of shades (although most people wore black). Tuesday was Teacher Tuesday and we dressed as our favorite teacher (or did we?). Some of the teachers even dressed up as coworkers. Meanwhile, there were tons of clones of Mrs. Dayen walking the halls! Wednesday was Wishful Wednesday, where we dressed like a time to which we wish we could return. Mrs. Johnson dressed up as a child to represent her own childhood but in her words, “I would never really wish to go back to a time before I had a certain Mr. Dustin Johnson in my life.” Thursday was Trends Thursday, where we dressed in as many 2021 trends as possible (some people were in pajamas, and yeah, this did include me). Friday was Fandom Friday, where we dressed in our favorite merchandise. Sports teams and TV characters were well represented by followers.

The basketball season has coming to an end. The players and coaches have had a great season and are already looking forward to next year. We are thankful basketball could still happen even with COVID-19. The seniors from the team were honored and the complete teams are featured in the photos below.
Hello, I am Kelsey Lemieux coming to you live from Pine Tree Academy here in Freeport, Maine where we have recently had our annual spring banquet. Our day started with dinner for the early birds who caught the worm at Panera on 3/14/2021 at 5:00 pm. The night owls decided to come out afterward and meet us at the movie theater from 6:00 pm until around 9:00. At the movies, we all acquired free popcorn and soda. We started by playing a game where we would find people who had the same answers to common "getting to know you questions." Next, we played who is most likely to battle the classes using stickers to see who in each class could get the most stickers on one person. At the theater, after the games had settled down, we sat down to watch the movie. The movie was called National Treasure and It was about a historian and code breaker named Ben Gates who has, with the help of his family, been searching for treasure his whole life, a treasure that the people were uncertain whether was real or only a legend. To discover more, he joins an expedition with Ian Howe. Ben finds a new clue leading to Washington DC and the Declaration of Independence but Howe betrays him in an attempt to keep the treasure for himself. Ben goes into a race against time and his fellow man. At several points during this movie, a specific code word was said and the members of the Student Association would throw out chocolates to the students. All together, banquet was not quite the same but it was fun and we were together and that’s all that matters.
As if this day couldn’t get any luckier! Not only Is today St.Patrick’s day. It Is also Mr. Krueger's birthday. Our wish is GOOD LUCK for you today and everyday!!
