Fall 2022 Activity and Athletic Awards

At the first morning meeting of the spring semester, many Lumberjacks were recognized for their accomplishments during fall after-school activities and athletics. The awards ceremony honored individuals in after-school activities for their dedicated efforts, leadership, and improvements to their after-school commitments. Although the awards are presented to individual students, a little bit of every Hebron community member goes into these achievements.

Hebron Football Season Recap

The 2022 LumberJack football season was one for the record books. Not only did they turn it completely around from last year. They went from 1-5 to 5-1 within 1 football season. This team accomplished so many goals, but it was all due to the entire team working together for the common goal of getting better and winning football games.

Upper School Updates Week 10

Maybe you’ve already heard this from your Lumberjack, but this week grades opened. When you log on to MyHebron and navigate to the Progress tab, students and their adults can now view cumulative grades for this semester. Teachers have been helping students understand their grades, how they are determined, and the best way to impact them in the month that remains in the semester. Students have been excited to see this snapshot of where they stand – and are taking a deep breath as they realize their grade and then settling themselves in to doing the work that will carry them through December 20.

Writing Contest Winners

The first Hebron Academy Writing Contest of the year asked students to reflect on a quote from Wallace Stegner describing "that old September feeling," the opportunity each new school year offers us.

Upper School Update Week 8
  • Academics

This week has shown us what the fall weather can do in Maine! As someone new to this area, I’ve loved seeing the range that the climate has to offer: frost, intense and amazing fog, drizzle and rain all day, cool crisp mornings that lead to afternoons when you want to sit outside and soak up the sun… The leaves are mostly finished turning color, and have fallen to the ground. They sound like little drums when the rain hits them – it’s a comforting white noise as you fall asleep or gently wake up in the morning.

With all aspects of school life in full swing, HAMS students continue to work at balancing their school work, homework, after school activities and free and social time.
