Greely Night of Excellence

Greely Night of Excellence

Last night, the night of excellence took place. There was an art show, and they also read out the names of students who made honor roll. My older sister had a few art pieces there and went as well. It was a lot of fun, and a lot of people got awards and such. It was a wonderful time, and the Inkwell, Greely High School's literary and art magazine our school makes every year sold very well.

Greely Tennis Loss

Greely Tennis Loss

Greely lost today against Cape in our earlier game. The courts were slick, and many people weren't on their game. One of our players' back was hurting. The score was 2-3 and Cape won. This was our last match before playoffs, we may be in them. Here's to hoping!

Greely Sports Outside

Greely Sports Outside

Greely once again is drowned out with tons of rain and gross weather. This is effecting sports in a bad way of course. Tennis has been inside for a long time, but today we are venturing outside to play. It's most likely not going to be a very good day, it's windy, and a bit misty, but so long as the court's aren't too bad, we should be able to play. Today's game is against Cape, starting at 3:30. Wish us luck!

Maine Poet Laureate Selects Merriconeag Poetry Festival Finalists

FREEPORT - Wesley McNair, Maine’s new Poet Laureate, has selected twenty finalists from ten area high schools for the Fourth Annual Merriconeag Poetry Festival. The finalists will be honored at an awards ceremony and reception on May 1 at the Merriconeag Waldorf School in Freeport from 3:00 pm to 4:30 p.m.

The event is open to the public, and will feature the student-poets reading their prize-winning work. Mr. McNair, a nationally acclaimed author of eighteen books, will also read his own work and speak briefly on the power of poetry. He will announce the first, second, and third place prizewinners, whose poems will be displayed on a poster to be distributed to all high schools in the region. All finalists will receive gift certificates and a festival booklet containing all the selected poems.

“There were so many impressive poems I had a difficult time choosing the best of them,” said Mr. McNair.
