Principal’s Post…

TDecember was a fun filled and exciting month here at Pocasset! Many crafts and holiday celebrations were experienced and there was even a visit from Mr. & Mrs. Claus! I really enjoyed the trips around the world students were taking as they learned about all the different ways countries celebrated the many different holidays.

TAs part of their music curriculum, Grades 3 and 4 will observe a performance by the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. This presentation includes how the planets’ movement synchronizes with the rhythms of the music world.

TOur Kindergarten friends and families enjoyed an afternoon of winter crafts. I heard lots of laughing and giggling going on in these rooms!

TGrade 1 held a fun winter activity. They made amazing Gingerbread houses that were fit for a King! There are many creative minds working in grade 1!!

TThe whole school was invited over to Tiverton High School. Students enjoyed a Holiday concert put on by the High School band and Chorus! What an experience for our students. Many were just as excited to ride the bus!

TOur December Jamboree celebrated all the good behaviors here at Pocasset School. A BIG Thank You to all the parents that volunteered to help out!!! You are the BEST!!

TOur teachers and staff were able to enjoy a holiday luncheon. It was so nice to have the whole staff together! Thanks to all the volunteers that made this happen!!!

TThe URI Men’s Basketball team will visit our students this month to discuss how to incorporate hard work and academics into fulfilling their dreams!! An essay contest will be held to win a surprise visit from members of both URI basketball teams (Men’s and Women’s)!! Students are encouraged to write about “how incorporating hard work and academics will help them fulfill their dreams”.
