Chess Team Update

The chess team competed in their first tournament of the year this past Saturday. It was a great success! The elementary team led by Maurice Davis and Tatyanna Castro took third place in their division. The middle school team took first place in their division. The middle school team was led by Duc Dang who won a silver medal, William Meenan who won bronze, and David Morales who won bronze. The tournament was a lot of fun and all chess team students did a great job competing hard and showing good sportsmanship.

Enterovirus Fact Sheet

As many of you are aware, there has been a deadly outbreak of Enterovirus.   We hope that all cadets are taking precautions to protect themselves from the spread of this and other contagious diseases. In light of this particular virus, we have disinfected surfaces in our buildings with a specialty cleanser that kills germs on contact.  We also wanted everyone to read some facts about this virus to ensure that Maritime will not have any cases of this deadly disease.   Please click on the link for important information regarding Enterovirus.
