Senior Night for Boys Basketball this evening
Senior Night for Girls basketball
Winter School is a second chance for students who have failed the first semester. It is an opportunity that offers students hope that they can pass for the year, maintains the integrity of the class grade, and gives the students the skills, concepts and knowledge they need to successfully pass the second semester.
Winter School is basically Summer School moved into the Winter at the end of 1st semester.
Students pay a fee, are assigned personalized lessons of study based on what they failed (integrity) first semester, and upon successful completion of all assigned lessons (skills, concepts, knowledge), receive a 65, the lowest possible passing grade for the first semester (hope).
This is all completed using Edgenuity, an online learning forum.
Guidance counselors will meet with all identified students during the week of February 25. Winter School officially starts on March 4.
Drama Festival to begin March 2

Friends of the Cardinals' Softball Clinic Fundraiser
Many thanks to Friends of the Cardinals for organizing this collaborative community outreach.
In closing: Case High's Valentine visitors
Our Bridging the Generation Gap pilot has allowed many different worlds in Swansea to intersect: the chance for seniors to interact with today's teenagers, an opportunity for high school students to show off their school, our wonderful Chartwells Food Service, and the thespian talents of some of our students.
Because of the generosity of Gail Oliveira, Karen Beaulieu and Chartwells, Joseph Case High School hosted a senior Valentine's Luncheon in the cafeteria. We were even surprised by a visit from the pre-schoolers from Case's Little Faces who hand-made valentines for our guests.
Many of the seniors had never been on a school bus ==> so it was an adventure transporting our friends to and from the Ocean Grove facility.
Among the many partnerships this has involved, nothing could have happenend without the cooperation of Superintendent John Robidoux, Swansea's Council on Aging's Executive Director Laurie Pimental, and Supportive Day Care Coordinator Cristina Camarao.
I am truly grateful for moments like these at Joseph Case High School.
Have a great February break,
