The big kids weren’t the only ones who graduated in June. All Friends Learning Center Preschool had their graduation at Nasson Little Theatre.


Campers in SRTC’s Middle School Camp had a great week! Here are some photos from the Law Enforcement and STEM A programs.


On May 35, the Sanford High School AP Capstone Symposium was held. Students presented their year-long research projects over a variety of student chosen topics, listed below. Community members, staff and other students attended the symposium and learned about the hard work that students have put in over the past year.

Students began in September with an in depth research project about a broad topic, and then narrowed the topic down to a researchable scale. They conducted the research and worked to write a 4,000-5,000 word paper and create a 20 minute oral presentation. At the Symposium, they shared their research posters (generously printed by Edison Press of Sanford and sponsored in part by Baker Company also of Sanford). The students presentations and symposium posters require them to have extensive knowledge not only about their project, but also about their topic and existing research on their topic. What is most impressive is that the course requires them to complete research that has not been researched before, thus adding to existing knowledge and allowing the possibility of publication. Kelly Tibbetts teaches the AP Research class and oversees the Symposium.
