An Easy/Fun Opportunity to Earn Credits For Community Service WHEN? Saturday morning, April 9, 2016, 9:15 to 11:15 WHERE? First Parish Church, 116 Main Street, Yarmouth WHAT? Packaging vacuum-sealed meals for hungry children in northern rural Maine. Sitting or standing at an assembly line and pouring, for example, a cup of macaroni or soy into a plastic bag with 44 other people: men, women, adults, and students. WHY? One out of four children in Maine worry about not having enough food to eat each day. Northern rural towns in Maine have few, if any, food pantries; transportation and spoilage create huge problems. July and August are critical months, because hungry children in northern rural Maine have no breakfast or lunch available at school. Usually it takes until age 25 for one’s brain to develop fully. With so many hungry children, what does this say about their brain development? What about the quality of Maine’s high school graduates? For only 25 cents, Kids Care Food Program can provide supplies for a nourishing meal. The meals are vacuum sealed; therefore, the shelf life for the meals is two years. There are three options for Kids Care meals: a vegetable/rice casserole, a bean/rice meal, and a macaroni and cheese dinner. All meals are fortified with protein, vitamins, and minerals. Actually, 45 people can package 10,000 vacuum-sealed meals in two hours. Later, the Good Shepherd Food Bank will transport the packaged meals to its Brewer warehouse for distribution in northern rural Maine, specifically in July and August, when the children there have the least amount of food to eat. To register, or if you have any questions, please email Barbara Horton bhre77@myfairpoint.net Thanks so much!

Community Service Opportunity On Sunday, February 7th, Yarmouth Community Services will be hosting the annual Father/Daughter Valentine Dance in the Harrison Middle School Cafe. We are looking for 5-6 volunteers to help us with decorating, etc. We also need one volunteer who is specifically interested in Photography that could assist Jason Veilleux with photographing the families. Volunteers would need to report at 1:30 and would be done by 5:30 at the absolute latest (time to watch the SuperBowl). Please let me know if you are interested or if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your help.

Are you good at Math? YHS Students: Are you good at Math? Do you like a challenge? Do you want a chance to win awards for your skills? Every year we offer a chance for students to participate in the American Math Contests. These contests give students a chance to challenge themselves and see how they stack up against math students from around the country. Top scorers have a chance to win awards and/or complete in higher level competitions. There are separate contests for students in grade 10 or lower and for students in grade 11 or higher. This year, the AMC will take place on Tuesday, February 2nd during advisor and period Blue 2. Anyone signing up and taking part will be excused from that one class, but will obviously have to make up any work missed. If you would like to take part, please sign up using the AMC Signup Form. If you have any questions about this competition, feel free to contact me directly or you can ask your math teacher. T Shaw
