Last month on October 31st, Trekker’s staff hosted an afternoon of fun and festive activities that introduced every 7th grader from Oceanside Middle School and St. George School to Trekkers. Any 7th grader who is interested in finding out more information about becoming a Trekker this spring, we would like to invite you and your family to attend our Community Meeting happening tomorrow, Tuesday, November 28th from 5:30-6:30pm in the Oceanside Middle School cafeteria. Applications will be available at this time to any current 7th grade student living in Thomaston, Cushing, St. George, South Thomaston, Owls Head and Rockland.
Tomorrow marks the opening of our enrollment period will extend from November 28th to our deadline on February 2nd, 2018. Any students who apply after February 2nd will be added to our waiting list until a spot becomes available. If Trekkers receives more than 40 applications by February 2nd, we will then implement a lottery system to select students. This lottery is designed to produce a gender and school-balanced group. Our goal being 15 girls and 15 boys from Oceanside Middle School and five girls and five boys from St. George School.
