Algebra 2 and Manufacturing is in it’s first year at Maine East! Currently the students are working on print reading and measurement. They have learned about line types and symbols that are used to communicate within a “shop print”. Which is typically found in a manufacturing job setting. Students are beginning to learn how to read a ruler an then will move on to dial caliper and eventually a micrometer. On the Math side the class is working with the the Cartesian coordinates system and how it relates to manufactured parts as well as how measurements seen on prints are represented in decimal form. Finally, students are learning the “machinist speak” when it comes to calling out Thousands and Ten Thousands of an inch. Often times the lingo or vocabulary heard on a job site is different from the words used in a classroom.

Welcome to Krysti – Maine East’s New Therapy Dog
As many of you may be aware, our school district has opened the doors to having the presence of therapy dogs to help serve our community. Sadly, Cris Villalobos and Luke have moved to Maine South. In response to this change, student services will be hosting a new Therapy Dog, named Krysti.
Krysti, a four-year old white shepherd, with a gentle disposition and trained as a Therapy Dog. She will be primarily be handled with one handler, counselor Amy Allen, to ensure her presence and interaction with others is always appropriate and helpful.
Students who have sensitivity to dog allergies should notify Amy Allen or Michael Wartick so they can plan accordingly to your needs.
