Scholastic Art & Writing National Awards
The Masconomet art department is proud to announce that Emaline King won a National Silver Medal this year for her colored pencil drawing, "Painted Goggles". Congratulations Emaline!
On March 19th fifteen members of the science team competed in the all-day Massachusetts Science Olympiad. Team members wanted to participate, to have more science time after the last couple of years. We did not concentrate on preparing for the Olympiad with our focus on winning the league meet in March so we were incredibly happy to have placed 24th out of 65 teams. They had nine top twenty finishes out of 22 events with four of those being top 10!! Have you ever tried to make music with squashes? No? Well, we did! The team had so much fun and brought such positive energy, Ms. Fay is proud of all their efforts.

Spanish students worked on creating miniature towns to apply the town and city vocabulary they are learning in the current unit. Thank you to Mr. Quadros for sharing a student example below.
Attention seniors and parents/caregivers of seniors! ALL NIGHT Grad party registration is open to all soon to be Class of 2022 graduates. Wondering what the all night grad party is all about? Hear first hand from 2 Masco grads Jack and Tessa on why it's not to be missed! Are you the parent/caregiver of a junior, sophomore, or freshman? Volunteer to chaperone on this very special night!
Is your teen looking for ways to engage or serve? Two upcoming opportunities to make their voices heard - participating in a Focus Group discussing teen mental health - what helps, what hinders, and what youth think COMMUNITY can do to support it AND a youth data party. More info is in the TTC announcements. Your teen can earn community service hours, share their thoughts and engage with others!
AND, not to be missed - Mindfulness in the Age of Digital Distraction. Adults and high school youth welcome to attend. What are the benefits of living in our digital world and how do we counter the harms of social media and digital platforms? What advocacy and leadership opportunities are there for youth to create a healthy and safe digital world? Join us to explore these questions along with mindfulness and some evidence-based strategies to increase brain health.
