October 2019 Newsletter
Masconomet Middle School
Message from Principal Dillon
This year we will strive every day for academic excellence in an environment that champions good citizenship. Under the leadership of Dr. Harvey, we will begin to evaluate our curriculum through the lens of 21st century skills. Greater focus will be placed on preparing our students to become critical thinkers who effectively collaborate and communicate with others and are able to solve problems creatively. We will also be emphasizing good citizenship and be introducing Civics into the grade eight social studies curriculum.
