Dear Future Hawks,

We are very excited to welcome you into our school on Thursday, April 29th for Athletics night. We had a great turnout for our virtual Activities night on Monday, April 19th. If you were not able to make it, don’t worry because we do an activities fair right when school begins.

This information details the logistics for Thursday, April 29th. We have broken this into two groups to limit the number of people in the school and would ask that families try to limit the number of people to one adult and one student, when possible. This will help us maintain social distancing to a greater extent. Masks are required at all times on campus.

For Families with the last name A-K 

  • Athletic coaches will be available from 6-7:00pm for questions and program information. There is no set program so please come and go as you please. This is an opportunity to learn more about the programs, meet the head coaches and ask questions.
  • Student helpers will direct families to the correct locations in the A wing which is the southernmost end of the building. (1st floor – fall, 2nd floor- winter, 3rd floor- spring)
  • Sports are listed by season on our webpage.
  • From 6:30-7:30pm, members of the building administration will be available for a brief 20 minute tour of the building. Much of what you’ll see is under construction and will be complete by August, 2021. Tours will leave from the A-wing lobby.
  • Parking is available on the south end of the school (by the tennis courts), the front circle, and the north lot. We’ll have entrances open with student helpers to direct you to locations.

District 207 Language Placement Test - February 4th, 2021 (1:30 - 3:30 p.m.)


Please reach out to Tona Costello ([email protected]), D207 World Language Department Chair, if you are interested in taking a language placement test for the 2021-2022 school year. The placement test is appropriate for students that are not currently enrolled in 8th grade Spanish or French in District 64, Pennoyer or the parochial schools.  All 8th graders currently enrolled in Spanish or French receive a placement recommendation from their current teacher. The other languages offered at Maine South include Italian, German and Mandarin Chinese. If there are heritage speakers who have been exposed to the language they choose to study or who have participated in a formal educational program, a placement test may also be necessary.  All questions can be addressed to Ms. Tona Costello. Thank you!
