Dear Quashnet School Community,
Last Thursday evening was Step Up Night for Grade 3. It is always so wonderful to welcome new and returning families to Quashnet School! Thank you to our third-grade team for leading tours of the building and to our student leaders who greeted families and helped with the tours.
Have you heard about Mr. Felix yet? Mr. Felix is a new music teacher at Quashnet School through the end of this school year. He will be working alongside Mrs. Hill to bring excellent music education to our students as well as leading the band students. Mrs. Boyd is expected back to school in September.
Mr. Felix is a certified music teacher, plays in a band professionally, and teaches music lessons outside of school. So happy to have him on the team!
All grades are getting ready for their own field trips. Grade 6 will learn about the court process in a simulated shoplifting case, and they will be exploring the Waquoit Bay estuary and salt marsh. Grade 5 students will be testing their underwater submersibles in the pool at Willowbend and heading to the Museum of Science. Grade 4 will visit the Cape Cod Canal and a fish hatchery to identify adaptations. Grade 3 will be visiting Plimoth Patuxet Museum in June.
Field trips are a fun way to experience content that has been taught in class - they extend the learning in a hands-on way. If you are interested in chaperoning a trip, teachers will be reaching out to families regarding their needs. Chaperones must have an updated CORI form on file with the school and complete a volunteer form. It is not a difficult or lengthy process, but you do need to turn the CORI form in along with your picture id. This can be done at the #WeAreMashpee store or at the Superintendent's Office. Be sure to reach out if you have any questions.

Picture Day ID: EVTWNKVVM
If your child has been absent and missed their scheduled Math or Science MCAS, make-up sessions will be held every morning this week until all students have been able to complete their missed sessions. Science MCAS only applies to Grade 5 students. Thank you Mr. Kapulka and Mrs. Ryder for their work in preparing these makeup sessions and ensuring all students have the opportunity to show what they know!
Come have some fun and show your Falcon spirit!
LAST CALL for Career Day! Please come and share your work experience and training with our students. If you can commit to one hour or more, your help would be SO appreciated. Sharing your knowledge and experience with students expands their understanding of career paths out there. Our kids are more than worth it and you will have a GREAT day!
Call Mrs. MacIntire @ 508-539-1550 or email at email@example.com for questions or scheduling.
