    On Tuesday, May 21, almost 160 Masco juniors took part in the 9th annual Credit For Life Fair at Masconomet High School with 11 other area high schools and close to 1,000 other students.  During the day students simulated the life of a 25 year old professional learning the ins and outs of how to manage their budget for a month as they explored expenses ranging from housing, transportation, health and wellness and other unexpected life events.  Students were given salaries, credit scores and in many cases a credit card spending limit.  This was a great opportunity for students to gain perspective on the household expenses they will one day have to plan for and making valuable decisions about their needs vs. wants.  Many thanks to the Institution for Savings for bringing this event to our students.

    Masconomet High School Chinese Teacher Li Ai received the following public accolade from a Masco parent;

    “Shout out to Li Ai and the foreign language department. My son studied Chinese from 7th-12th grade. When he took his college placement test for Bryant he was placed in a class with only 4 other students. He recently received an award in the language program and has decided to major in International business with a concentration in Chinese. He credits Li Ai for his interest and success in the Chinese language and culture. THANK YOU MASCO!”

  • New England Biolabs (NEB) Awards Grant for Compost Hauling

    Posted by Peter Delani on 5/6/2019 4:10:00 PM

    The Environmental Club officers and members of the Green Team worked tirelessly over the last few months to research and write the grant application (an invaluable lesson for our students!), and are thrilled to have this opportunity to bring real environmental change to our campus. The NEB Corporate Donations Committee has awarded $3,000 towards the Masconomet Composting Initiative. This grant will cover the cost of compost hauling for the 2019-20 school year as we pilot the program.   None of this would be possible without the expertise, commitment and hard work of Doug Batchelder (Facilities Manager) and Carrie Murphy (Cafeteria Manager) who are valued members of our Green Team.

    The Environmental Club and Green Team are committed to working through the spring and summer to ensure the rollout of this program will be as successful as possible.
