DEAR QUASHNET SCHOOL COMMUNITY,
It is with excitement and sadness that we say good-bye to our current sixth graders. Most of them have been at the Quashnet School for the past four years. We have watched their physical, academic, emotional, and social transformations. For some students, the growth has come easily; for others, it has been more challenging. Throughout their Quashnet School journey, our school community has celebrated their triumphs and offered support and guidance during times of struggle. We are very proud of the young people who are “graduating” from the Quashnet School, and we wish them the very best in their future endeavors. Our advice to each of them is to be a good listener, care about and value others, choose your friends wisely, be tolerant, be mindful, and have a positive impact on the world. You only have to look to our “Character Words of the Week” to find guidance for future success.
The Quashnet School Family would like to recognize and celebrate a very special member of our staff who is retiring this year: Ms. Dianne Louf. Mrs. Louf has positively impacted our students, their families, and her colleagues. She has shown passion for her work, has spent many years helping, educating, and guiding the children of Mashpee, and has been a highly valued member of our school community. We wish her a retirement filled with good health, relaxation, and many opportunities to create happy memories. Congratulations and best wishes. We are very grateful to Ms. Louf for her 21 years of service to the Mashpee Public Schools. She will be greatly missed.
Ms. Louf is pictured above with her husband Stephen.
Also retiring this year is paraprofessional Mrs. Sharon Scully. Sharon has been a valued member of our team for many years. She has always worked very hard to guide our students in their learning. We wish her all the best in her retirement.Mashpee is also saying good-bye to sixth grade teacher Ms. Jessica O'Brien. Ms. O'Brien is getting married in August and will be moving back to the Baltimore area. Ms. O'Brien will be greatly missed at the Quashnet School.
SUMMER READING AND MATH PRACTICE: All information related to this summer's Quashnet School expectations for summer reading and practice of math skills will be included with your child's report card. This year we are teaming with the Mashpee Public Library for our summer reading. There is no specific required reading book for each grade level. Students will keep track of their daily minutes of reading and will post their minutes to an online site established by the library. In order to not experience a decline in reading and math proficiency, students should engage in reading and practice/application of their math skills on a daily basis--a little bit every day is much better than a lot on only a couple of days.
Thank you to sixth grade special education teacher Alysha Dunnigan for arranging a visit by the Minutemen for our fifth graders. It was an outstanding hands-on learning opportunity.
This year's talent show was another outstanding event. Above is sixth grader Erica Austin.
Ms. Manning's homeroom and Ms. Martin's homeroom explored the SPIT and learned more about erosion and the environment.
