There is a light schedule of activities for the Princeton Elementary School this coming week. On Wednesday, May 18 there is softball practice from 2-3:30; Thursday the 19th the calendar for the week shows a softball game home vs. Edmunds at 3:30ish. On Friday there is T-ball practice from 2-2:45 and softball practice from 3-4:30. Going to the whole May calendar for the first three days of next week, it shows a softball game with Edmunds at 3:30 on Monday, May 23rd. Readers may want to check that date and time as those same teams are listed to play on the previous Thursday. As I write the column, it is too late for me to call anyone affiliated with the school to check and I won’t have the opportunity to check before the paper goes to press. On Wednesday, May 25th there will be softball practice from 2-3:30 and the Spring Art Show will be at 6pm.

Cheers for the performance of Suessical the Musical. I enjoyed last year’s Drama Club performance, but wasn’t able to get to this one. There has been a happy buzz in the community at the announcement that Princeton Elementary School Grade 4 teacher Jane Andrews has been chosen Washington County Teacher of the Year. She joins 14 other teachers in being considered for Maine’s Teacher of the Year. Maine’s representative will go on for consideration as America’s Teacher of the Year from over 50 other teachers. Congratulations, Jane.
