Eclipse party concessions, other April doings for PIE

Thu, 04/04/2024 - 8:30am

    Wiscasset Schools and Partners in Education (PIE) have several upcoming events for our community to look forward to!

    PIE will be selling concessions at the “Solar Eclipse Watch Party” being held at the WMHS lower fields on Monday, April 8. The partial eclipse begins at 2:18 p.m. and ends at 4:40; Wiscasset will see 97% totality at 3:31p.m. Be sure to bring your protective eyewear! All Wiscasset students will receive a pair of eclipse glasses to take home, and a limited supply will be available for the public at the watch party.

    WMHS spring sports photos will be held on Friday, April 12.

    We’re all hoping for great Spring Break weather from April 15 through 19, and on April 23, we’ll celebrate Bus Driver Appreciation Day!

    On Saturday, April 27 the girls’ basketball program is hosting a Dodgeball Tournament at WMHS, and the Wiscasset Boosters are adding more fun to their fundraisers by hosting a “Parents’ Night Out” at Wiscasset Community Center! This event, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature dancing, raffles, a silent auction, and a cash bar – $15 advance tickets are available at WMHS and WCC; tickets will be $20 at the door.

    And if that’s not enough fun for one month, there’s a middle school dance being planned at WCC, to be announced.

    A huge thank you to First National Bank employees, who recently presented PIE with a nearly $1,000 check from their "Casual for a Cause" program! Every Friday, First National Bank employees can choose to dress casually and donate $1 toward a local nonprofit; a different nonprofit is chosen each month, and PIE was extremely grateful to find out we were the February 2024 recipients!

    If you’d like to learn more about PIE or support our school’s PTO with a tax-deductible donation, by purchasing items from our wishlists, or volunteering, please connect with us!; @WiscassetPIE on Facebook, and @Wiscasset_PIE on Instagram.
