    Jazz1 Jazz2

    Congratulations to the Masco Music Department for the outstanding jazz concert last night, May 7th.    The Masco Music Parent Association transformed the large cafeteria into a jazz club.   All the Masco jazz groups (Jazz Choir, Jazz 2.0, Percussion Ensemble and Jazz I) performed at the concert.  One of the highlights was the featured guest trumpet player Trent Austin.  Mr Austin is an international jazz artist and educator with quite an impressive resume.  He came and taught a workshop with the MS and HS Jazz Bands last week and then returned last night to perform with the bands.  It was a great concert and a real showcase for all our jazz musicians.

  • What "Masco" Is All About

    Sam Gordon

    Masco Alum Sam Gordon (pictured left) now currently a Junior at Emerson College sent a nice email to his former Masco Journalism Teacher Michelle Siden:  Thought I'd share Sam's warm thoughts and good news: 

     To Ms Siden,

    This past week has been a wild ride to put it lightly. But it all started when I turned on the T.V to watch Boston 25 News. I saw a story about a young woman who now dying of cancer, wished to meet New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.

    So, doing what a journalist is supposed to do. I followed the story and did an article interviewing Justyna as well as her mother about their fight and her desire to meet Edelman.

    https://primetimesportstalk.com/2018/04/29/patriots-fan-with-cancer-wishes-to-meet-edelman/

    The article made its rounds and eventually reached Edelman who shared it with his mother. In two days time, Boucher was able to meet with her idol making her wish come true.

    After the event took place, I opened my laptop and recounted the event (the article is below.) Only to see posts like this pop up all over Facebook with the family and their utmost generosity and thankfulness towards me.

    https://primetimesportstalk.com/2018/05/02/edelman-grants-cancer-patients-wish/

     The work I had done made a difference and that's what a journalist is supposed to do. You taught me this and I am forever grateful with the gift you gave me in those years at Masconomet.

     

    Thank you 

    Sam,

  • Masco Wrestlers Named Academic All Americans

    Posted by Peter Delani on 4/26/2018 12:00:00 PM

    (Excerpted from Salem News): Masco wrestlers named Academic All-Americans

    The traits that make a student that can achieve high marks in the classroom and be a great high school wrestler — such as dedication, attention to detail, patience and willingness to work — often go hand-in-hand.

    That’s surely the case for four of the North Shore’s most talented young grapplers who also happen to be outstanding in the classroom.

    ............Masconomet sophomore Trevor Nugent, and  juniors Joey Perkins and Jack Darling were each honored as Academic All-Americans by the National High School Coaches Association whenthe list was announced on Wednesday.

    It’s the 25th year that the NHSCA has been choosing high school Academic All-Americans. This year’s list included students from 34 states in seven different sports. Massachusetts had the most selections of any state with 10.

     

    "This year’s Academic All-Americans are the epitome of what a student-athlete is. Not only do they excel on the playing field, mat, court, pool, and track, but they also excel in the classroom," NHSCA CEO Bobby Ferraro said throu! gh a news release. "These student-athletes are leaders in and! out of the classroom and are the future leaders of tomorrow. We are proud to deem them Academic All-Americans."

    【浦中纪事】美国Masconomet High School师生到浦东中学访学纪实(一)

    4月14日下午一点,载着美国MasconometHigh School马斯克诺麦中学15位学生和2位老师的车辆驶进浦东中学,和他们结对的15个浦东中学学生家庭已早早在学校等待。虽然未见过面,但是提前孩子们通过邮件进行了联系,凭着感觉,并呼唤着自己伙伴的名字,很快都各自找到了自己的结对伙伴,马斯克诺麦中学15位学生为时一周的浦东中学学生学习和生活体验正式开启了。

    4月15日上午九点,美国马斯克诺麦中学师生来到浦东中学食堂,中西文化融合的第一步是饮食文化,学校安排美国学生自己动手做饺子和馄饨。美国学生学得非常认真,在几位浦中师生的指导下,一只只有模有样的饺子和馄饨呈现在自己面前,随后又进入了自己的嘴中。午餐后,大家乘坐地铁去了中华艺术宫和世博源,学校提前为学生们购买了上海的交通卡,让美国学生体会上海的公共交通。

    4月16、17日,正值浦东中学的学生期中考试,所以美国的师生们自行组织旅行,下午4点返回学校时,他们的中国伙伴已经等在校门口,中美学生一起回家。
