Case High at Attleboro Arts Museum

Congratulations to art teachers Janet Blair and Rebecca Hall for providing their students with the opportunity to show their work as part of Attleboro High Art 2018. High Art is an annual exhibition showcasing the extraordinary talent and ideas of high school students connecting teens with artists both past and present. The initiative fosters the creation of original artworks and provides a professional forum for students to voice their own creativity and work collaboratively.

Details next week: two new events

Stay tuned for more details next week on two new end-of-the-year events at Joseph Case High School.

We will be decorating the auditorium for parent and family picture taking during check-in for the prom on Thursday, May 24. Prom guests will be part of a PROM-menade to make this event even more special. Details will be communicated to stakeholders as to what doors will be open and where to park at the high school.

Secondly, we are finalizing details of having seniors return to Swansea middle and elementary schools to celebrate their upcoming graduation event with the teachers who helped shape their lives. The graduating class of 2018 will have the opportunity to take buses to specific schools to say thank you and model for future Cardinals the benefits of working hard and staying focused.

Spring music concert

Please join me in the auditorium next Thursday night, May 17, for the final music concert of the year. The event kicks off at 7 p.m., and features some of the high school's most talented musical groups including our show choir.
