State Volleyball FINALS!!

Lady Cardinals will play in the MIAA Division 3 volleyball state final on Saturday at Shrewsbury High School. The championship game begins at noon against longtime western Mass. rival Frontier. This past Tuesday, the girls swept Lynnfield 3-0 in the state's north vs, south tourney.

Fan Bus for Saturday

Athletic Director Andy Crisafulli has organized a fan bus for Saturday's volleyball state final. The cost for round-trip student transportation to Shrewsbury and ticket to the event is $5. Students must sign up and pay in the main office by the end of the school day on Friday. The fan bus will leave Swansea at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

TONIGHT: Parent-Teacher Conferences

Please join us for two nights of Parent-Teacher Conferences at Joseph Case High School on Thursday, November 17 and Monday, November 21, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. No designated days and times based on last names: come one night or both nights ===> whatever fits your schedule and needs. Guidance counselors can meet with families both evenings. Refreshments will be available in the Learning Commons as well. Teachers will meet with families on a first-come, first-served basis. Please limit conferences to five minutes out of respect to others in line.


Here are some great tips that were shared with me on Twitter last week for teachers to make the experience better for families. They have been re-tweeted by many administrators across the Commonwealth since I posted on Monday.
