Dear Quashnet School Community,
      “We are not counting the days; we are making each day count.” It is so important to continue to be focused on learning as we wind down this school year.  Every day is valuable, and best effort and excellence must be the norm—academically and behaviorally.  We have 23 learning days remaining, two of which are half days.   
         Thank you to our third grade teachers and our third graders for providing a welcoming experience to KCC second graders during their shadow visits on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of last week.  We hope that the second graders have gained some knowledge that will better prepare them to transition to our Quashnet School community.  Thank you also to the following staff members who attended our Step-Up Night event for second graders and their families last Thursday night:  KCC Nurse Stacy, Mrs. Arsenault, Mrs. Colantuono, Mrs. Schreiner, Mrs. Broderick, Mrs. Sorbo, Mrs. Gruner, Mrs. Stickley, Ms. Cabral, Mrs. McCue, and Mr. Rumberger.  Thank you to sixth grader Jessica Rullo and fifth grader Jenna Thompson for their help welcoming guests at the event.  Thank you to our PTO for providing refreshments and to PTO President Amy Rullo for her support.  A special "thank you" to our third grade ambassadors who did an outstanding job sharing their knowledge and experiences as third graders:  Caitlin Signs, Charlie Jenkins, Jordan Walker, Marcus Clark, Cooper Rozum, and Bernardo Dias Da Costa.  Superintendent Hyde's presence and support at this event is greatly appreciated.
       On Monday we celebrate Memorial Day.  Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who served our nation and have died.  I encourage everyone to visit the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne today or on Monday.  American flags placed at the entry way as well as at every single gravesite is a site to behold.  We must always show our respect and gratitude to those who are no longer with us (and their families) whose service to our country helped to protect our freedoms. 

     We are greatly looking forward to this year's CAREER DAY on Friday, June 5th.  This is a wonderful learning event for our students and a great sharing experience for our guests.  Thank you to Mrs. Cheryl MacIntire for planning all aspects of this event.  There is still time to be added to the day's schedule if you would like to share your career with our students.  Please contact Mrs. MacIntire by Thursday of this week at 508-539-1550, ext. 4188.

A great event for the entire family!
