The fifth-grade classes will be welcoming Mr. Sean Cahill from the Barnstable County Sheriff's Department as we kick-off the G.R.E.A.T. Program this week!  This program is nationally recognized and helps educate students in Gang Resistance Education and Training.  For detailed information check out this link - . The GREAT Program is also recognized locally as a recommended program in the fight against addiction. We are lucky to have such a great community partnership with Mr. Cahill and the Sheriff's Department.  If you visit the school you will see his marked car over the next two months - this is a "great" thing! 

The week before break, we had some interesting things going on around Quashnet...

Mr. W found a twin! 
Mrs. McKay's class - a land of immigrants! 
Water Festival fun....a interesting day for grade 5!
