One of the amazing opportunities students have at both MDI and Ellsworth High Schools is to explore the world with teacher led trips overseas.Typically they go every 2 years, but a cycle of trips was cancelled because of the pandemic.

Now a trip is being planned for MDI students to Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England in April of 2023. Fundraising is well underway, and to that extent, there is a Fall Fair, featuring Crafts and Cookery at MDI High School's Cafeteria this Sunday, November 20th from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. Plus, there will be children's activities, hosted by the Interact Club, while parents peruse the Craft Fair.
