March is National Music in Our Schools Month so the Marshwood Music Department created a video to celebrate. While music during a pandemic is very different from just over a year ago, our students and the world continue to grow and enjoy the many benefits of music. We thank you for your continued support of the arts in education. 

This year we can’t all celebrate in person with our traditional District Choral Day and District Band Concert so we made a video to celebrate what we can do together. Looking back, looking forward, embracing the now, and always celebrating music! We hope you enjoy the video linked here.

Thank you again for your support.

2 Maine teams excited to be back on the court playing volleyball

2 Maine teams excited to be back on the court playing volleyball

Brandon BrownPortsmouth Herald

YORK, Maine – Although one team got the “W” in the record books, both teams left with a victorious feeling. 

The Marshwood High School girls volleyball team beat York, 3-1, in a matchup that meant more than just a final score — it was a chance to get back on the court and compete after the traditional fall season was canceled due to COVID-19. 

“We have 16 girls this year,” York High School coach Suzanne Bradley said. “My goal today was to get everyone some court time, which we did.” Screen Shot 2021-03-19 at 11.01.29 AM
Screen Shot 2021-03-19 at 11.00.57 AM

It was the first of a six-game season for the Wildcats, while Marshwood improved to 2-0 on the season.

“Obviously, we didn’t come away with the win,” Bradley said. “But it really isn’t about that this season, it’s more about getting the girls out there playing volleyball. I think they did a great job.” 

Marshwood opened its season last week in a 3-0 win over Kennebunk. However, the Hawks, like York, are just happy to be back on the court and playing.

“It was really sad that the season got cut short in the fall,” Marshwood coach Rob Childs said. “I’m just glad that the state of Maine came together and put in this wedge season, so to speak, together for the girls. Because that’s what it’s about, to give them that moment.” 

One obstacle of this shortened season is a lot of practice time crammed together in a short period of time, specifically at the season’s outset. 

“We’ve had two weeks in the gym to prepare,” Bradley said. “So, it’s really tough to get these girls playing volleyball. We didn’t really think we were going to have a season. We didn’t have any cuts this year. We have 16 girls, and my goal as a coach, especially this strange year, is that I really want to make it a good experience for everyone out here.” 

Childs is faced with numerous challenges this season. He is in his initial season as head coach at Marshwood, moving from Pennsylvania.

“A lot of these girls weren’t used to seeing the coaching style nor the plays that we run, or the formation,” Childs said. “Fundamentals were just kind of off from the start, but we had two and a half weeks. We really grinded for those two and a half weeks to get rid of those bugs.” 

For York, hearing a season was going to be played came as a surprise to the team.

“The girls were shocked, they really were,” Bradley said. “They were like, ‘Oh my, are you serious’. Everyone was really excited.” 

York won the first set Monday, 25-16, but Marshwood bounced back and won the next three, 27-25, 25-13, 25-22.

“We started out rough just like the last game we had,” Childs said. “They get a little nervous when they come on to the court. Once we kind of like get rid of the butterflies, and stop overthinking ourselves, which at this level they do all the time, they just let their athleticism shine through. That’s what you saw tonight. It was just beautiful, and it was fun to watch. They just had a good time.” 

“It was a fun match against Marshwood,” Bradley said. “It’s fun to have it be very competitive. We get to see them in the last match of the season, so that will be fun.” 

With five games left, York is ready to enjoy the ride, as well as get some of the younger players some experience.

“Some new, young kids on the team,” she said. “I have a freshman, and some sophomores; we’re going to be a really young team next year. So, I’m like we have to give some experience to some of the young kids. And it showed today that it’s great. That’s what I wanted to have happen.”  

Members of the York team include Raigen Michniewicz, Meg Bachelder, Nora Pulsifer, Phoebe Slovenski, Tatum Stacy, Grace Frazier, Roe Sophia, Emma Tinnervin, Maddie Morris, Megan Tully, Katrina Kiklis, Gianna Mauro, Tamta Jologua, Maryem Sat, Kayleigh Foss and Chloe Slovenski.

Members of the Marshwood team include Lulu Himmer, Raya Anderson, Madison Fjeld, Mia Tero, Margaret Kovalcin, Elise Echols, Kiley Gordon, Kate England, Vivian Webster, Morgan Chabot, Caitlin Mathieu, Lianne Walker, Abigail Mathieu and Audrey Hammond.

Marshwood High School One-Act Play


This year’s one-act play will be part of a virtual Maine Drama Festival this weekend, and it will stream for free on Saturday, March 27 @ 7:00 PM. (The link will be emailed, and it will be posted on Marshwood Theatre’s Facebook page.)

The cast includes Gabi Giniusz, Riley Hanscom, Kate Adams, Janet Homans, Alana Moretti, and Tucker Whelan.

Written in New York City during the 2020 lockdown, WAITING FOR THE HOST is a show that is specifically meant to be performed remotely. (The MHS cast has rehearsed entirely on Zoom.)

SYNOPSIS: While theatres, playgrounds, schools, and churches are shuttered by a modern plague, the rector of a small church on Long Island gathers a handful of parishioners via Zoom in April 2020. His goal is to record a theatrical reading of the story of the Passion for the church website. As exes bicker and technology confuses, this socially distant endeavor quickly becomes chaotic. Still, in the effort, the group finds a strange, painful closeness, and that their comic and clumsy reading has become a kind of desperate prayer.

Maine basketball: Marshwood boys fall in OT to Kennebunk in tourney championship

Maine basketball: Marshwood boys fall in OT to Kennebunk in tourney championship

Brandon BrownPortsmouth Herald


KENNEBUNK, Maine —The Marshwood High School boys basketball team saw “deja vu” strike in another overtime thriller at Kennebunk High School in the championship game of the inaugural Martin E. Ryan Memorial Tournament championship game on Friday night. 

For the second time in this week, the Rams outlasted Marshwood in overtime, winning 55-53. Kennebunk beat Marshwood on Tuesday, 70-68. 

The tournament was played in tribute of Ryan, who spent eight years as athletic director at Kennebunk High School. Ryan was also the Executive Director of the Maine Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association, and spent 29 years as a teacher, coach and administrator at Wells High School. 

Ryan, 73, passed away unexpectedly last month. 

“Just happy to be able to play in the Marty Ryan tournament,” Marshwood coach Bobby Pratt said. “We battled down to the wire, it was a great game. I’m happy for my guys.” 

Marshwood forward Aidan Sullivan, who won Maine’s free throw competition last month, was grateful for the opportunity to play.  

“It was really special to be able to have an opportunity to play for something like this,” he said. “I am appreciative of everyone who made it possible for us to play in a tournament style.” 

York beat Wells in the boys consolation final at York High School. 

Adam Lux’s two free throws gave Kennebunk a 50-48 lead with 3:37 left in overtime. 

Marshwood’s Andrew Perry (14 points) got the two points back with a tough finish in the post to knot the score at 50-50 with 3:21 remaining. 

“Good possessions on both sides,” said Pratt. “Good defense, good offense and just competing. I thought it was good.” 

The Rams re-gained the lead off a second-chance basket by Ian Murray, who scored 10 points in the game. 

Again, Marshwood answered.  

The Hawks’ Aidan Sullivan, who scored a team-high 15 points, hit a 3-pointer from the left wing to put Marshwood back on top 53-52 with 1:15 left. 

“We were always ready to answer back,” Sullivan said. “Hit a shot or get a stop to not let (Kennebunk) get all of the momentum.  

Unfortunately, it was the last lead Marshwood would have. Screen Shot 2021-03-13 at 10.49.32 AM

Lux tied the game at 53-all when he hit the front-end of a pair of free throws with 1:09 left. 

Lux missed the second, and Marshwood’s Kelvin Peterson got the rebound, but fell and was called for a traveling violation, giving Kennebunk possession with just over a minute left. 

Murray missed a go-ahead 3-pointer, giving the Hawks a chance to take the lead on the other end. 

This time, Marshwood did not answer. 

Jackson Theriault tried to squeeze a bounce pass in the lane, but it was stolen by Kennebunk, which led to a transition layup by Sam Tartre which gave Kennebunk a 55-53 lead with 40 seconds left. 

Marshwood had another opportunity to tie the game but turned the ball over. 

With 8.9 seconds left and the Rams lead still at 55-53, Tartre was at the free-throw line looking to ice the game for Kennebunk. 

Tartre missed both shots, Marshwood’s Peterson secured the board, dribbled to half-court and signaled for a timeout with 4.4 seconds left. 

Out of the timeout, Sullivan inbounded the ball to Perry who missed a turnaround, game-winning 3-point attempt. 

“When it got down to the wire, we drew up a play and got the look we wanted,” Sullivan said. “Just didn’t happen to fall for us, but wouldn’t have wanted a different shot than what we got.” 

“I’m really proud of these guys,” Kennebunk coach David Leal said.  

Lux scored a game-high 13 points for Kennebunk, while Aaron Waite and Murray each had 10. 

“(Kennebunk) can score in bunches,” Pratt said. “We gave up 70 the last time we played them, so this was the kind of game we wanted. I’m proud of my team. I think they played really hard.” 

Trailing 48-46 with 27 seconds left to play in regulation, Peterson drove to the basket and converted a contested layup, tying the game at 48-48. 

The Hawks tightened up on the defensive end forcing the ball out of Murray’s hands, and forced a Waite 3-point attempt that misfired, sending the game into a four-minute overtime.

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine – If fans were permitted to Marshwood High School games, the final five minutes of Wednesday’s Marshwood-York Class A boys basketball contest likely would have had more energy.

The Wildcats defeated the Hawks, 47-45, to win their third straight game and their second win in a row over Marshwood. York also beat the Hawks, 37-32, last week.

This game, which saw Marshwood rally from 11 points to take a late lead in the fourth quarter, was similar to last week’s low-scoring contest. 

But again, York was able to hold on in an afternoon thriller.Screen Shot 2021-02-22 at 2.26.15 PM
Screen Shot 2021-02-22 at 2.25.51 PM

“We’re 3-0 because of our defense,” York coach Jerry Hill said. “We’ve scored 50, 37 and 47 in three games. We know we have to keep teams under 50 to give us a chance to win.”

Mission accomplished.

A late basket from Andrew Perry, who had a team-high14 points, put Marshwood up 45-42 with 1:50 remaining. 

“We played a little bit more relaxed,” Marshwood head coach Bobby Pratt said of the second half adjustments. “Honestly, there were no magic Xs and Os.” 

With 1:21 left, York’s Josh Gennaro converted a layup and drew the foul on Marshwood’s Jason Singer. Gennaro missed the free throw, as the Wildcats now trailed by one point, 45-44.

York took the lead for good when Will Bourgeois cut back door and scored on a Teagan Hynes’ pass to put the Wildcats up 46-45 with 21 seconds remaining.

“It’s just the love to win and the hate to lose (the game),” said Hynes, captain of the Wildcats. “Every game, I put everything I can on the court to make sure our team wins and put the team in the best position (to win).”

Out of the timeout, Marshwood’s Kevin Peterson drove to the basket and dished the ball to Perry who missed a close shot. Perry rebounded his miss and failed to make the follow up attempt before Evan Bourgoine grabbed the rebound for the Wildcats.

Bourgoine was fouled and made a free throw, pushing the York lead to 47-45 with 3.5 seconds on the clock.

Marshwood’s last chance to win, or force overtime, did not go as planned.

Alex Nielson stole Aidan Sullivan’s pass intended for Peterson. Nielson passed the ball to Hynes who dribbled out the final seconds.

“I just (told the kids that) we were going to have to battle every possession,” Hill said on not letting the game slip away. “Marshwood’s tough. They play really good defense and it’s hard to get open shots.”

Hynes scored 15 points in the win.

“We came out hot, something we haven’t been able to do,” Hynes said. “We kind of mellowed out for a little bit and then we were able to bring it together at the end.”

Despite the loss, Pratt is thankful to have an opponent to play.

“I thought it was a great game,” said Pratt. “We’re just lucky for the opportunity to get in the gym and compete against somebody other than ourselves.”

York allowed just four points in the first quarter, taking the early lead.

“I thought we started off a little slow offensively,” Pratt said.

Peterson, who scored nine of his 12 points in the first half, said the Hawks are accustomed to the slow-scoring starts.

“We’re not really the team to come out first,” the senior guard said. “But we do battle back.”

“We got good looks, just couldn’t finish,” Sullivan said.

Hynes was also a force on defense. In the middle of the second quarter, he got a steal and converted two free throws after being fouled on a fast break to extend the Wildcats’ lead to 19-8.

“He’s been awesome,” said Hill of Hynes. “Having a kid like that who can always get you into the offense, can score and is also a very good defensive player, obviously, is a big help. It makes me a better coach for sure.”

Peterson was matched up with Hynes multiple times throughout the game.

“(Hynes) is a really good ball handler,” said Peterson. “So, it’s hard to guard him.”

York took a 24-17 lead into halftime.

The third quarter was a quiet one as the Wildcats lead remained at seven (31-24) entering the fourth quarter.

Marshwood opened the fourth quarter on a 10-3 run to tie the game at 34-all.

Hynes missed a 3-pointer, but the Wildcats secured the rebound, and this time, Hynes nailed a 3 to put York back on top, 37-34 with 5:25 remaining.

Marshwood responded with a 5-0 spurt, capped by a Sullivan 3-pointer in transition to put the Hawks up 39-37.

“We were scoring, they were scoring,” said Sullivan.

Sullivan’s play was no surprise to the York coach.

“We know Sullivan’s tough,” said Hill. “We knew we had to key in on him. He’s a good player. He can shoot, he hits 3s and he can get to the basket.”

Inclement Weather Protocol

October 29, 2020

A message from MSAD 35 MAINE

Dear Members of the Marshwood Community,

As residents of Maine, we are all fully aware of the difficulties weather can create.  As a result, MSAD 35 has worked together with the Town of Eliot and Town of South Berwick Emergency Management Directors, as well as each community’s Chief of Police, Fire Chief and Public Works Director to create clear emergency protocols in the event of a severe weather event or an unanticipated emergency.  These protocols will provide clear, collaborative communication between the towns, the State of Maine and the school district.  In essence, I will work to gather as much information as possible to make an informed decision regarding our school’s opening, closing or having a delayed start time, and then communicate this information by 5:45am with members of our school district.

Families have questioned why the phone calls to cancel school are so early in the morning; the reality is that our school buses begin their morning routine as early as 5:50am, with the first students being picked up at approximately 6:20am.  Therefore, some children are required to walk to their bus stops, up to ½ mile, and will be leaving their homes by 6:00am.  Below you will see listed the various outlets where MSAD 35 will post information in the event of a change in our school’s daily status:

Posting on the district’s website front page:

Posting on the district’s Facebook page

Notification via TV channels 6, 8 & 13

Notification via radio stations WTSN and WHEB/WERZ

Phone message and email via Connect-ED

MSAD 35 will not be able to offer “Blizzard Bag Days” (everyone fully remote) as an option instead of a traditional snow day.  The State of Maine has a requirement that lunch and breakfast must be served for a school day to be countable.

It is also important to note that weather conditions can range across our district and there may be times that, as a parent, you decide to keep your child home when school is open.  I want to assure you that the district will support you in your decision, as we believe that if you as the parent do not feel it is safe to have your child or children attend school, you should keep them home.  In these cases, the absence would be considered “excused” and any work that was missed may be made up in a reasonable period of time.  I also want to provide some clarity on our Two Hour Delay Schedule:

Two Hour Delay – A two hour delay will result in all schools moving their start times back 2 hours.  Bus pickup times will be 2 hours later than normal.

School                                              Bus Stop Pick up                          Two Hour Delay Start Time

CES       Two hours later than a typical day.   11:00 am

EES       Two hours later than a typical day.   11:00 am

MGWS  Two hours later than a typical day.   11:00 am

MMS     Two hours later than a typical day.    9:30 am

MHS     Two hours later than a typical day.    9:30 am

*Remote Learning classes will follow the Two-hour delay schedule for your child’s school, as staff will need the additional time to safely get to work in the event of inclement weather.

Providing a safe environment for our students and staff is our priority.  Thank you for your continued support!

Update for MHS Return and Re-entry

Hello Everyone,

This email addresses two main points:

  1. Remote Learning Option
  2. Vocational Program

Hope all is well.

Thank you for your flexibility, patience and support during this time.

Students and parents are making an important decision this weekend between hybrid and remote experiences.

We hope the following offers some additional context to use in your decision making.

Remote Learning Option


The hybrid experience provides students the opportunity to receive instruction in the classes students signed up for in the spring.

  • Students will attend onsite instruction twice a week.
  • Students will receive remote instruction three times a week.


The remote experience does not ensure students will receive the instruction in the classes students signed up for in the spring.

  • Students will engage in remote learning as their primary form of instruction.

Please know a priority in our design process has been to maintain the integrity of the academic experience the student requested in the spring.

The hybrid model is more likely to provide students with their requested classes. 

The remote experience will likely not be able to offer the depth and breadth of those choices.

That being said, in order for us to finalize the remote option, and clearly articulate the offerings, 

we need to know how many students will be in the remote option. In the same respect, in order for students/parents to make a decision, they need to know what is being offered.

Here is where you can help-

If you are considering remote, or if you are unsure, please indicate the remote option on the survey. 

We do need you to indicate one option this weekend.

This will allow us to gather that data, examine staffing and clearly design and articulate exactly what the remote experience can offer.

Once we do that next week, we will communicate that outline to parents/students at which point the families can make a final decision.


Vocational Program

Please know we have been working closely all summer with Sanford to align our plan to support the vocational students. 

Marshwood students will have access to the Sanford Vocational Program classes. We are working to align student schedules to provide them with their requested Marshwood courses.

Of course, not unlike any other year, conflicts may emerge. 

That being said, just to clarify-the Sanford Vocational Program is providing their courses; we at Marshwood are working to align schedules; additional information about transportation will be coming soon

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your understanding and partnership in this process.


Rob Scully, Principal Marshwood High School
