    Model UN1

    The Masconomet Model UN team enthusiastically participated in their biggest event of the year-- the Boston Invitational MUN Conference organized by Boston University—from February 8th to 10th at the  Copley Marriott Hotel in Boston. For three days, twenty-six Masco delegates ranging from freshmen to seniors engaged in intense debate and collaboration with thousands of delegates from nearly 100 schools from around the country and beyond. 

    Masco delegates represented countries such as the Republic of Iraq, Ukraine, the Bolivian Republic of Venezuela, and the Republic of Ghana. Topics debated in the committees included reduction of corruption in the Association of Southeast Asian Countries; power vacuums in the Disarmament and International Security Committee; sustainability of outer space activities in the Committee for the Peaceful Use of Outer Space; and the rising prices of life-saving pharmaceuticals in the World Health Organization.

     Congrats to the whole team for their efforts! A special congratulations is in order for junior Alana Gerry, representing Suriname in OLADE (the Latin American Energy Organization), who was recognized for her outstanding research and writing with the Best Position Paper award in her committee.

     

    Next up: BC High School MUN on March 2nd.

    Car

    Masconomet Juniors and Seniors had the opportunity to participate in the Distractology course offered by Arbella & Cross Insurance.  The program allows new drivers to get firsthand experience of how distractions interfere with their ability to react on the road, see hidden hazards and avoid accidents while safely behind the wheel of a driving simulator.  The students have been exposed to distractions such as people in a crosswalk, answering a text, and changing a song.

    JFK JFK1

    Students enrolled in either AP Government or Economics participated in a Federal Budget simulation on February 8th, where they worked with students from other area high schools to discuss how to allocate discretionary spending funds to various programs. Students realized that cutting or enriching programs has short-term and long-term consequences. It was an eye-opening experience!

  • Poetry Out Loud

    Posted by Peter Delani on 1/10/2019 12:00:00 PM

    POL

    On January 4, twenty-five high school students competed in Masco’s 13th annual Poetry Out Loud competition. Poetry Out Loud is a national recitation contest sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation. The tiered contest begins at the classroom level, with each student memorizing a poem from the thousands available on the Poetry Out Loud website, including poems by authors as classic as John Donne and as contemporary as Fatimah Asghar. Based on criteria such as physical presence, voice and articulation, accuracy, and evidence of understanding, one winner from each classroom advances to the school competition, where contestants recite two poems. Congratulations to all who participated in this year’s contest.

    Guest judges and local authors Bonnie Bishop, Conrad Squires, David Donavel, and Meagan Hildebrand were faced with the difficult task of choosing just one of these outstanding performers to send to the state semifinals in March. Coming in third was veteran contestant Fridahan Basame. Tracy Weener’s dramatic recitations landed her a second place spot. After a fierce competition, Sophia Kwiatek earned her a first place victory. Sophia has already proven her grasp of the complexities of love and loss with her first two poems. She will learn a third poem in preparation for state semifinals, state finals, and possibly nationals, where contestants have the potential to win tens of thousands of dollars in prize money. We wish Sophia Kwiatek all the best as she moves forward!
