From Social Studies

Kate Nickerson, a freshman enrolled in Modern World History, invited her uncle to join our class’ google meet on Friday the 13th. His name is Sergio Vinelli and he works on Wall Street in Market Connected Terminals and he witnessed the attacks on the Twin Towers. Kate presented the information she gathered from the interview she conducted with her uncle. He elaborated on her story, offering the students much insight into the events of the day, the long term repercussions, the root causes of September 11th and his thoughts about COVID-19. He discussed how the virus has been affecting his work in Manhattan. Students were very interested in his story and some of them stated that they are certain that they will remember his visit to our meet for the rest of their lives. Thank you Kate for bringing in this excellent guest speaker!

Middle East Conflicts

Students in Currrent Middle East Conflict class held an engaging conversation with SSgt Annicelli, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan. Students are currently forming their own opinions about President Trump’s goal to of bringing the American soldiers home from Afghanistan by Christmas. SSgt Annicelli spoke to the students about the reality on the ground in Helmand Province, where he was stationed, the treatment he received from the people there and the delicious bread he ate which was pounded by the feet of the Afghani people,

From our NEED Club

Bow Seat is putting on this contest and it is an organization that relates to science and specifically educates the youth on climate change. This year's theme is "Rising Water," and the NEED club already has a flier made to put up around the school to get students interested.


NEED is all about getting students involved and since it is such an important topic, people should know more about it. If a student at Scituate High School were to win, there would be a prize for that student!!
