School Spirit Challenge


The school spirit challenge is a friendly competition between schools to show school pride and spirit, all while helping the community. The program is designed to promote the community and good stewardship with students of high schools in Central and Southern Maine through an ongoing food drive to benefit the Good Shepherd Food Bank.  The SSC is all about showing off everything that makes your school a great place to be  by demonstrating why you have the best school and the most community spirit.   Schools will compete to raise the most pounds of food this fall. CBS 13 News and  FOX23 will feature a different school every Friday on Good Day Maine from September 12 to October 31.


The participating schools are:

Sept 12 – Mountain Valley

Sept 19- Gorham

Sept 26 – Scarborough

Oct 3 – Brunswick vs. Bonny Eagle

Oct 10- Spruce Mountain

Oct 17 – Edward Little

Oct 24- Sanford

Oct 31- Gray New Gloucester


The winner of the School Spirit Challenge wins the coveted Spirit Cup Trophy.

Partners in Education is a way for parents to be well connected with the school and to discuss and implement ways to improve the school.  Meetings include a brief update on particular issues, concerns and school programs such as curriculum, guidance, activities, athletics, and many more.  Then the team continues to work on ways to improve the school.


Stay connected and provide support and help through the Partners in Education.  We meet from 5:30 - 6:30 PM in the Stickney Library at GHS. All are welcome!
