Beach Day is an event put together by the student association (SA) that the academy participates in every year. In years past, Beach Day has taken place at Popham Beach State Park; however, this year the SA decided to change things up and take everyone to Winslow Park Beach and Campground in Freeport. Though there was some speculation about the change in location and the weather, it turned out to be a great day! We started the day with worship, ended it with ice cream and had volleyball tournaments, watermelon, capture the flag and mud baths in between. This was a great way to kick off the school year!

Students in grades 3 & 4 attended the Oxford County Fair this past week. Some highlights included petting the animals, the smoke house, and hanging out with friends. One student even came home with a new birthday bunny (the parent was present of course).

Senior students, in Mrs. Krzywon's British Literature class, were treated to many treats on Tuesday in class. The students baked and steeped herbal tea for their time together. Some might say the experience was better than anything you might find on the British Baking Show.
Students in grades 7 & 8 paired up with students in grades 3 & 4 to complete a science experiment involving changing materials from a liquid to a solid. A great way to illustrate this process was by making ice cream! These two grades will continue to buddy up during the school year. The hope is to make lasting connections with students in both older and younger grades.
