Support McAuley’s Tanzania Project!

In response to our school mission trip last April, the McAuley Key Club has committed themselves to partner with St. Lucia’s Orphanage and the Sunflower International School in Arusha, Tanzania. This partnership allows us to share resources and experiences, as well as joys, sorrows and prayers, as we fill a 40-foot container with greatly needed items. We ask as you clean out your children’s toys, books and closets that perhaps you consider donating gently-used, unwanted items to our Key Club on behalf of St. Lucia and/or the Sunflower International School.

Catherine McAuley Clubs and Sports Teams have enthusiastically embraced our effort to ship a 40-foot container filled with urgently needed supplies, but we could use your help. Because McAuley High School and St. Lucia/the Sunflower International School are not-for-profit, DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. In the meantime, if this Christmas season finds you able to make a donation of gently used toys, furniture you no longer need or want, children’s books, bookcases, sheets for a twin-size bed, or bed frames, please drop off all items by Thursday, December 17 at the McAuley Academy Building. If you are so inclined to assist with a monetary donation, please address a check to McAuley High School and write “Tanzania” on the memo line.

We are grateful for any help you can provide!  Thank you for your support.

Most Needed Items:
Children’s socks
Twin sheets, blankets, waterproof mattress pads
DVD & VHS educational and children’s movies
Large kitchen pots, restaurant size
Mops, industrial brooms
Garden hoes, rakes, shovels 
Work gloves
Solar lights
Metal storage shed to hold all new outdoor toys and tools
Vitamin pills

McAuley Voted Best Private School in Maine!

McAuley is #1! Catherine McAuley High School was recently voted the Best Private School in Maine in “Down East” Magazine’s annual poll of reader and editor favorites, featured in the July 2015 issue. Thousands of “Down East” readers voted January through April for their statewide selections while editors went through a rigorous selection process of their own. McAuley was chosen as top in its category!

The annual “Best of Maine” readers’ awards provide “Down East” readers the opportunity to recognize their favorite Maine people, places and things around the state. Based solely on popular vote, the readers’ choice winners represent the best of Maine as identified by those who know Maine the best: the state’s residents and repeat visitors. Equally invested in the state’s culture, editors choose their own favorites to receive recognition each year.

Kathleen Fleury, “Down East” editor-in-chief, spoke of the selection process, saying, “Our readers love Maine for many different reasons, and the Readers’ Choice awards encourage them to show their support for the people and places that make the state so great. The selection process is one that everyone puts a lot of time and thought into – so it’s a true honor to be selected.”  

“Based on popular vote, we are thrilled that others recognize what we have always believed – that McAuley, the state’s only all-girls high school, is #1, shared Head of School Kathryn Woodson Barr.  “Here’s to the students, faculty, staff, alumnae and McAuley community who truly are the BEST!”
