Good Morning! Work will be beginning soon on the Outdoor Education's challenge course. Mr. Maxwell is looking for volunteers to help with this. Any high school students out there needing community volunteer hours, this would be a great opportunity! Here are the dates that help is needed: Orrington August 1- Cutting and prepping before skidder arrives (Volunteer help with chainsaws and moving brush) August 14 and 16- Volunteer help to clear leaves, spread gravel/wood chips and build elements. If you are able to give a couple of hours it would be appreciated. The course will be located in the woods behind the soccer field, just head out back!

We are very excited to announce a new opportunity for our middle school students in the fall. At the approval of our school committees, due to the shortage of world language teachers we have eliminated world language from our curriculum and have replaced it with an Outdoor Education program. This will be a shared position between Orrington and Dedham, taught by Mr. Gil Maxwell. More information will be shared in the fall, but be looking for volunteer opportunities throughout the summer as new outdoor structures are created on our campuses. If you are interested in volunteering throughout the summer, please reach out to Mr. Maxwell at g.maxwell@cdsedu.org

At the request of Mr. Mugnai: "Thank you to all staff, parents, and students who shared their “well wishes”, cards, gifts, and stories with me during the time of my retirement. I saw many families at recent school concerts, ball games, and my retirement celebration. I have been so blessed to have all my 50 years’ worth of memories in Orrington. I had hoped to spend my time thanking you personally for allowing me to know you and your family just by working as a teacher and Assistant Principal with the students. I will truly miss the many interactions we have shared at various school events such as, parent conferences, ball games, PTG functions, and Open House. I mostly, will miss the students who are inspiring to work with, talented, exploring new concepts, growing in social skills, and exciting to watch as they grow into young adults. Again, thank you for all of your support. I couldn’t have done it without you. John Mugnai"
