Residential Life Update – May 1, 2023

2023-05-01T13:21:44-04:00May 1, 2023|

Jump into May

We have reached the mid-point of trimester 3 and grade reports will be emailed to families in the coming week.  As a reminder, these mid-trimester grades only provide a snapshot of your student’s work halfway through the trimester and likely will have changed by the time you see them.  They are an indicator for how your student is doing as they push toward the end of the academic year.  As of this publication, seniors have 20 academic days remaining until graduation with underclassmen, just 27 to the end of the year!! Please be in touch with any questions.

The next several weeks are busy with performances, exams and events. Advanced Placement (AP) exams began today and will run over the next two weeks.  Final exams are scheduled and year-end assignments will take place in early June. Bravo to the musicians in last night’s Spring Band Concert including Jacqueline Pelletier.  

Join Us for End-of-Year Celebrations!  The last few weeks of the school year are going to move quickly and we are getting ready to celebrate our students.  We’d love to have your family join us for Graduation and other events!  Graduation is Friday, June 2.  Click here for details:

AP Exams
AP Exam information is available in the CAC office, and with your AP teachers.  Exams will be held during the first two weeks of May.  Please have students check with teachers about AP Exam locations and times.  Testing locations will be on campus in Hall House, St. Patrick’s Church in Newcastle, and at the Second Congregational Church at the bottom of Academy Hill Road.  It will be the student’s responsibility to arrive at least 20 minutes in advance of the exam starting time.  It will be the student’s responsibility to provide their own transportation to and from exams.  This may require parents, guardians, or friends providing rides to early morning exams and bringing students home from late afternoon exams.  There will be a bus available for students with exams that start at noon at St. Patrick’s Church.  Some exams can last up to four hours.  Bring pencils, black or blue pens, approved calculators, water, snacks and your AP ID number.  *If you have testing accommodations please check with your teacher or the CAC office, your exam may be in a different location than your other classmates.*

Summer opportunity for Juniors & Seniors!!
Bath Tech is excited to offer a new opportunity through AGC Maine this summer! This is a great opportunity for ANY junior or senior who does not have a solid plan for after high school or is looking to go into an apprenticeship program. The student DOES NOT need to have any prior trade experience or be a Bath Tech student. 

The Immersion Program through AGC Maine will run from July 10th through August 18th at Bath Tech. Students will earn certifications and be exposed to many construction related careers (electrician, masonry, HVAC, heavy equipment, bridge/highway construction, pipefitting, crane operation, etc.) The program will end with a hiring event. Students will get paid biweekly for the program, a total of $1200 and receive a stipend for boots and a tool set upon completion. Students must be 16 years or older to sign up. Bath Voc will be hosting an Informational Night on April 13th from 6:00-6:45 pm. Space is limited, so please let CAC know if you are interested.

Bath Tech is offering a FREE summer program for rising sophomores (current ninth graders) focusing on Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math. Students can take part in their choice of programming including: Automotive, Culinary/Baking, Welding, Carpentry, Graphic Design, Electricity, and Cosmetology. Transportation can be provided, please inquire. CAC recommends that students with any interest in attending Voc in the future take advantage of this opportunity. Applications have been given to freshman advisors.

Sophomores who applied for Bath Vocational for the next school year, should be hearing more information after April school vacation.

The local P.E.O. International Chapter ( is offering a $500 scholarship to a female high school junior who exemplifies excellence in leadership, academics, extra-curricular activities, and community service. This scholarship application is due by 4/30/2023. For more information, please speak with your school counselor.

Juniors learned about leadership opportunities at Dirigo State this summer at Colby College (June 18-June 22). Dirigo State is designed after the Maine State government, where students from around the state come together to create their own town, county, and state governing bodies. This program was previously known as Boys State and Girls State, but became co-ed last year. This is an excellent government leadership program that we are so happy to provide for our juniors. Those students interested need to write a 1-2 page essay sharing why they want to attend Dirigo State and what they hope to get out of their experience. This essay is due to Ms. Gleason by the end of the school day on 4/25.

Many seniors are hearing back from schools with final decisions and financial aid packages. FAME’s presentation to LA about comparing financial aid packages was recorded and is published on our website. Please feel free to check it out!

Scholarships are updated regularly and posted in Naviance! Encourage your senior to check often. April 15th, April 30th, and May 1st are popular deadlines for scholarships. Additionally the CAC office is running an FLB that meets weekly on Mondays to give seniors time to research and apply for scholarships. FLB’s have been shared with students, but feel free to speak with your senior about this option.

Peer Tutors
If your student is interested in becoming a Peer Tutor, please email Ms. Alicia Lemar in the CAC office at This will happen during FLB and only in subjects students choose. Sign up now to join this exciting program!
