From ELA

Students in Mrs. Stormont's AP Literature course competed in a Spoken Word poetry contest throughout May. We crowned the winners during our last class together: Leah Tabor was champion with the poem "Love Song" by Dorothy Parker. Runners up were Dominic Wiharso with Claudia Rankine's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely: At the Airport Security Checkpoint," and Alexandra Iaciofano with CA Conrad's "Altered After Too Many Years Under The Mask."
Some of Mrs. Stormont's freshmen and Mrs. Hersh's math students had a meet with the Executive Director of The Sentinel Project, Mr. Chris Tuckwood. Mr. Tuckwood talked about how his organization uses technology to monitor hate speech and misinformation to prevent or mitigate atrocities and genocide. He also spoke about the importance of fostering critical thinking for all community members. The Sentinel Project is currently working in several countries, including Uganda, South Sudan, and the Democatic Republic of Congo. Thank you for joining us, Mr. Tuckwood!

From our Musicians Festival Concert

Traditionally, all members of high school music ensembles would attend a music festival through Great East Music Festivals where the ensembles receive adjudication and workshop their prepared pieces with professional musicians. Although we knew our festival would look very different this year, the music department remained committed to creating a high quality experience and education for our student musicians. The attached Concert Program showcases the talents of our students and faculty and demonstrates their unending passion and commitment for music even with pandemic restrictions.


Band and Chorus have each prepared three songs at a challenging level. Recorded separately, videos and audio tracks from all students were compiled and edited together by the wonderfully talented Billy Petterson, a former SHS music student. These virtual performances would not have been possible without his dedication and that of our music teachers and ensemble directors: Mr. Rivard, Ms. Tirocchi and Mrs. Vantine.


On behalf of the entire music department, I sincerely hope you enjoy our student performances! We'll be sharing our Virtual Pops Concert later this weekend and I'll make sure to send it your way.


Thank you for your continued commitment to excellence in music!

From Social Studies

Mrs. Buonaccorsi's RI/Scituate History classes made commercials for RI tourism. The classes watched some tourism commercials from other states and then discussed what made an effective commercial. The students brainstormed some of the attractions that RI has to offer as a tourist destination. Students then created their own commercial for RI.

Congrats Unified Basketball

In the last game of the season, the Unified Basketball team played against the Rhode Island School for the Deaf. Olivia Barone, was an amazing mentor for the entire game. Noah Gervasio maneuvered past a good defensive player and kept the ball moving forward. Alex Toic continued perfecting his one-handed shot. Morgan Barone played three quarters, successfully scored and caught a pass or two. Libby Casasola came in late to the game and not only scored but jogged down the court a few times. Jonah Kimmell showed everyone his dribbling skills moving the ball down the court and scoring some points. In the final seconds, being down by two points, Jake Catanzaro received a pass and shot from the three point line and it was ALL NET! Scituate was victorious by one point and ended with an overall winning season!
