Skowhegan Communtiy Project
Research shows that young people engaged in the real work of their communities routinely meet or exceed the most rigorous educational standards. Through place-based learning, schools help students claim their identities as inhabitants and stewards of their places, and even though they might eventually leave, they understand the value of small communities". Here in MSAD#54, we are committed to providing opportunities for our students to engage in meaningful activities throughout the community. Here are examples of many student created web pages.
