Happy Memorial Day Quashnet School Community,

You might recall the Community Event that was held to support our sixth grader, Michael. What a success!  With all the support and with a matching contribution from Ava Christo's dad's company, approximately $22,000 was raised for Michael's medical needs.  WOW! 

Mashpee is an amazing place!  On behalf of the team, thank you ALL who participated both great and small.  You help make a difference! 

We are very excited about a new tradition that is being launched in Mashpee Public Schools this year.  The graduating seniors at Mashpee High School will be walking the halls of Quashnet School in their caps and gowns this Friday, June 3 at 9:15 AM.  During the Walk of Honor, Quashnet scholars will be lining the halls to congratulate the seniors and celebrate in their success.  With limited time this year, the seniors will not be able to visit KCC, but we are happy to welcome our incoming third graders to join us in this celebration which will provide another chance to acclimate to Quashnet School! 
Congratulations to the Class of 2016! 

Wednesday, June 1, is Colonial Day for fifth graders and they are expecting some visitors.  The Yarmouth Minutemen will setting up camp on the front lawn of Quashnet School.  There will be several stations for students to visit which include a Colonial Homestead, Navy and Artillery, Cannon Crew, Continental Army, and a Loyalists and British Army station.  The Minutemen will be putting on a Militia Demonstration in the afternoon.  Please do not be alarmed if you happen to be at school - this is only a demonstration. There is never any danger to students or staff!   Thank you Ms. Dunnigan for organizing such a great learning experience. 

Memorial Day is a time to remember - thank you to our American heroes! 
Enjoy the long weekend - enjoy the extra day off!  

Mrs. O'Brien
