March 25, 2016

Greetings Quashnet School Community,

Happy Easter!  I hope you all had a great weekend and ready for a busy and productive week ahead.  It is hard to believe that this week will welcome April.

Please be sure to check out the "This Week" tab on the blog for a calendar of events and happenings.  There is also a link there to the district calendar.  It is an easy way to stay connected.

On Monday, March 28th, all students at Quashnet will be participating in a mock English Language Arts (ELA) PARCC test.  With new Chromebooks and upgraded wifi, we need to test our wireless capacity. Our hope is for all students to test simultaneously.  Students will take a 20 question practice test that will not be scored or reported on, but it will provide students with an understanding of the assessment.  We view this as a teachable moment; teachers will be able to assist students with questions and technology.  Should you be interested in viewing the practice tests please visit

Tuesday evening is the second session out of four in Guiding Good Choices, a seminar for parents presented by Gosnold on Cape Cod.  The sessions provide parenting strategies and discussions on helping to keep your children drug and alcohol free.  This Tuesday, 3/29/16, you can participate at MMHS from 6:00-8:00 PM.  The seminar is intended to support parents of children ages 9-14.  If you have any questions please contact Mary Fisher, Director of Gosnold, at 508-540-6550 x5244 or
This Friday, April 1, during lunch periods, students will be recognized for academic effort and perfect attendance.  Dog tags will be awarded to selected students. Being a Growth Mindset school, it is effort that makes a difference in a  child's success.

The Falcon Award (formerly known as the Good Egg Award) will also be given to this term's nominees.  Parents of the Falcon Award recipients will be notified prior to Friday.

Now for some fun!  It is time to come out and support Quashnet staff and parents in their (soon to be) victory over KCC staff and parents in the first annual PTO Basketball game.  

What:  PTO  Sponsored QS vs KCC Staff/Parents Basketball Game  
Where:  Quashnet Gym

When:  Friday, April 1st, at 6:00 PM

                                                             HAVE A GREAT TIME! 


 Even practice was a getting a little competitive! LOL! 

Let's go QUASH! 

Have a great week!

Mrs. O'Brien
