National Charter Schools Week – Maine has joined the movement

In 2011, Maine joined 40 other states in allowing public charter school options for families of all income levels.  On May 1, 2012, the Maine Charter School Commission issued its first application package for potential founders of these new public education options, which are free to parents and open to all children without admissions tests.

          The Maine Association for Charter Schools (MACS) will celebrate the great work accomplished by public charter schools across the country, where over 5,000 public chartered schools are serving 1.8 million students.

Statewide Ice Fishing Derby

    The statewide ice fishing derby will go on as scheduled this weekend. This is not to be confused with the cancellation of the Sebago derby that was called off two weeks ago. There are twenty weigh stations from Acton to St.Francis where anglers can bring their catches and compete for over $20,000 in prizes. Also if anyone is lucky enough to break the State record on togue (31 lbs. 8 oz) they will win a bonus of $100,000. To find out more information go to www.icefishmaine.com. Proceeds benefit charities all across Maine.
