Spring is in the air (nearly!) and with that comes the excitement of prom here at the high school. As you know, this is a huge expense for many students with the dinners, dresses, shoes, jewelry, and all the extras!
This is where The Cinderella Project of Maine swoops in like a Fairy Godmother to provide prom dress and all the fixings as no cost to students! The Cinderella Project of Maine is a non-profit based out of Belfast and has been running their yearly give-away events for six years. After contacting them about a desire to have a similar program here in Gardiner, they have agreed that an expansion into the Gardiner area would better serve a larger number of high school students and all of the details of making this happen are underway!
There is so much excitement surrounding this Program and collaborations are developing between JMG, Gifted and Talented, the Junior and Senior class councils, and the Gardiner Main Street Association.

GAHS JMG students will be hosting a Dress Drive on March 29th, from 9am-12noon in the GAHS Cafeteria. This is a great opportunity to clean out your closets and donate formal, semi-formal, or bridesmaids dresses
(even formal pantsuits!) which are in good repair. We are also accepting accessories like costume jewelry, wraps, shoes, and bags. All donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be given.
Isaac Boissonneau writes like a superhero in Stephen Lerette’s creative writing class. Not only does Isaac get recognized by his classmates for his extraordinary writing, he has earned the Gold Key from Maine’s Scholastic Writing Contest for his short story, “The End of Capt. Nova.” This year’s contest was co-sponsored by the English department and the Library Commons. He will be recognized for this achievement at a ceremony at the University of Southern Maine in March. His entry represents Maine in the national Scholastic Writing Contest. National results will be shared in March. The contest started in 1923 and has grown to be the longest running, most prestigious recognition program in the United States. Stephen King is just one of the many famous past winners. Isaac’s story will be featured in an anthology of award-winning Maine 7-12 authors. A copy of the anthology will become part of the Library Commons collection. In his story he reminds the reader of one of life’s great lessons, “It was at that moment I forgot who I was supposed to be and became who I really was.”
