Bridging the Generation Gap
It was a joyful event where new freindships were forged. After some small group introductions, students modeled their technology acumen by playing some online memory games tailored for senior citizens and then together participated in an exercise class.
This is the first partnership between the high school and the Council on Aging. We are very grateful for Laurie Pimental and her COA staff and look forward to hosting our new friends for lunch at the high school in the New year!
Seniors caps and gowns
Commencement 2019 will be held at Cardinal Stadium on Sunday, June 2, beginning at 1 p.m.
Superintendent's Award for Excellence
Congratulations to Rylan Costa who received the Superintendent's Award for Excellence at a luncheon last week with students from Somerset Berkley, Seekonk, Dighton-Rehoboth, Apponequet and Taunton. Presenting the award and scholarship to this top-ranking senior was Superintendent of Schools John Robidoux, representing both Swansea Public Schools and the Southcoast Educational Collaborative. We were honored to be joined at this year's event hosted at Stonehill College by Rylan's mom, Stephanie Santos.

As 2018 comes to a close...
Not only do I find joy in watching them grow, mature, clarify, risk, fail and succeeed, but I find great joy in bearing witness to their modeling, empathy, excitement, innocense, and hope for the future.
My one word for 2019 is rejoice. I choose the verb since I think joy can be both a choice and can be actionable. I hope to continue to see the joy in learning at Joseph Case High School and concurrently be the catalyst for joy in others.
A happy holiday and blessed New Year to you and yours,
