Spanish Students Visit The University of Maine

This week, Spanish students went to Orono to observe Spanish classes at the University of Maine.  They participated in 3 Spanish classes at different levels and the professors welcomed our students and included them in their lessons.  In between classes, students took a tour of campus with a guide from the admissions office and had lunch at one of UMO’s student dining halls.  Overall, students had a great trip and returned with a renewed energy to study Spanish and better idea of what to expect in college courses.

Caitlin Perrigo submitted a watercolor painting into this year’s Scholastic Art and Writing Competition and received a Silver Key Award for the Maine Region at the high school level.
