  • Poetry Out Loud

    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!

  • Art Department Memory Project

    Posted by Peter Delani on 12/20/2018 7:00:00 AM

    The Masconomet Art Department has been participating in The Memory Project for over 10 years.  The Memory Project was started in 2004 by Ben Schumaker.  The purpose of The Memory Project is to provide a keepsake for children around the world who have suffered neglect, loss, abuse and often times extreme poverty.  This year, the AP Art Studio class created 24 portraits for children whose lives were greatly affected by the devastation of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.  This video https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GV0BlADoDxWQZeuFtFZz2l7iyQNPIb9M/view?usp=sharing shows the children receiving their portraits.  The Memory Project is a wonderful opportunity for our students to do something for others on a global scale.

  • Sophomores Meet Their Pen Pals

    Posted by Peter Delani on 12/19/2018 10:50:00 AM

    Sixty-eight sophomores are participating in a pen pal program with an elementary school in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Masconomet students have been writing to second graders as part of a new community service program run by the sophomore English teachers. The program was established with the goals of making the community service experience at Masconomet more active and more meaningful for all students involved and of contributing to the social and emotional well-being of our students with a focus on volunteerism as a way of life.

    After several letter writing exchanges, the Masconomet students boarded two buses last Friday for a meet and greet with their pen pals. The excitement of the Masconomet students was palpable as they eagerly met their pen pals. The joy was not limited to Masconomet students. In a note of appreciation, a representative from the Lawrence school wrote, “The (Lawrence) students were so happy and will not forget this experience. One of the teachers just told me that in her class there is a student who is usually very shy and doesn't smile much. She mentioned that this student really connected with her pen pal and noticed that she was smiling and more social than usual. Your students really went above and beyond to make their pen pals feel special.”

  • Gun Violence Working Group with Rep. Mirra

    Posted by Peter Delani on 12/18/2018 9:50:00 AM

    A group of Masconomet and Pentucket Students participated in a discussion on gun violence, hosted by Rep. Lenny Mirra (R-West Newbury). Masco Senior Molly Luce said that “all perspectives were represented, and it proved to be an excellent leaning experience, not only in information, but also how to conduct oneself civilly.”

    The meeting was held at UMass Lowell’s Innovation Hub.  State Rep. Andy Vargas (D-Haverhill), Tim Wallace of Gun Owners Action League, and local members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sens in America, spoke of support for different pieces of legislation.

    Masco Senior Fridahan Basame was quoted in the Eagle Tribune article “New Laws, Mental Illness Discussed in Gun Forum” asking Rep. Mirra about a bill that allows citizens to petition courts to suspend gun licensure for a  family member who is deemed dangerous to themselves or others.
