And the girls Masco basketball team is holding a toy drive to benefit the patients at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and they’re asking everybody to donate! The box where you can drop off the toys is in the library, so consider doing something nice for someone else.
The Masco Mountain Bike Club/Team is open to any child in Grades 5-12 and is typically broken down into a Development Group and a Race Team. Being a Masco student is not required. The main objective is to get kids out on their mountain bikes and to have some fun on the local trails. Kids who are interesting in racing are encouraged to participate in the New England High School Cycling Association (NEHSCA) race series or to just try a race and see if they like it. Practice rides on local trails typically run April-June and September-October on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and occasionally on weekends (attendance is not mandatory – ride when you can!). The group also likes to volunteer to help with local trail maintenance and clean-up efforts. The team is coached primarily by parents who have backgrounds in road and mountain bike racing and share the ultimate team goal of having fun on bikes while developing new skills and friendships! A team meeting is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday February 6th @ 7pm (Location: TBD). This is a great chance for kids and parents to meet the coaches, learn about the team, and ask questions.
Please note that this is currently a primarily parent-run club/team and is not yet directly affiliated with Masconomet Middle/High School.
For more information, to RSVP for the Feb 6th meeting, or to join our email list, please contact Glen Gollrad, firstname.lastname@example.org.
