School Cancellations
If a school day is cancelled due to poor weather, the following school day will be the missed day in our 6-Day cycle.

Hello Quashnet School Community,
New England Patriots Day at Quashnet
This Friday, January 10th, will be New England Patriots Day at Quashnet.  Students and staff are encouraged to wear Patriots team apparel or team colors.  This will be our way of sending the team a little extra luck for Saturday night’s game against the Colts. 

Quashnet’s 2014 Popcorn Fundraiser
Our 2014 Popcorn Fundraiser will run from January 8 – January 22, 20l4.  This is a great way to purchase delicious popcorn and to support student activities at the same time.  The air-popped popcorn contains no artificial flavoring or coloring and sells for just $5.00 per bag.  Eleven delicious flavors are available.  A flyer, order form, and collection envelope will go home with each student on January 8th.  The top seller at each grade level will receive an order-out lunch with a friend (local restaurant of winner’s choice).  The overall top seller also wins a $50 gift card (winner’s choice of vendor).  Links are included below for the flyer and order form.  Please encourage your extended family, neighbors, and other friends to purchase some delicious popcorn and support activities for our students.  As always, we are very grateful for the support our school receives from our families and our community.
