All the Great Stuff Going On at Shea High School
Something to "Smile" About
Attendees from Shea included the following students and teachers:
Ms Blanchard and Mrs. Laroche
Some of the activities students took part in at the SMILE challenge weekend at URI included a tour of the greenhouse, an exercise working with human simulations , and experimenting in a Biotech lab working with DNA. In addition, students participated in a "marshmallow challenge." The goal was to construct the highest tower with a marshmallow on top. Shea High had the highest record-41 inches tall.

Shea Sophomore wins Poetry Award
My dreams are my dreams
Where no one believes in you but your soul
My body and my soul shall let our screams
But I know I will achieve this goal
Let those words of hatred float into fire
Put your mind together and lift those shoulders be confident of yourself first
Just imagine you're sitting up in the clouds and reaching higher and higher
Let those worries to the side, it could be worse
Congratulations to Daniela from the entire Shea family!!! Below is a photo of the award winning poet!
