Quincy Public Schools is very fortunate to have over one hundred dedicated community business partners.  One of those valuable partners is Brewster Ambulance Service.  Along with our Health teachers and school nurses, Brewster will be sponsoring a very special wellness initiative.  During the months of January and February, eighth grade students will be learning more about heart health in their Health classes.  The curriculum and supplemental materials will be in preparation for an opportunity to learn about Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) directly from licensed Brewster Ambulance Service staff.  All of the curriculum materials and resources will be available to you by clicking here.

In addition, Brewster Ambulance Service is offering the opportunity for Grade 8 students and their parents/guardians to participate in a no-cost full CPR/AED certification class on Saturday, February 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (snow date Saturday, February 11, 2017) in the Central Middle School gymnasium.  Information on registration will be sent home later this month and transportation for you and your student will be provided to and from Atlantic, Point Webster, Sterling, and Broad Meadows Middle Schools.  Please join us and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!

On Saturday November 19th, over 80 middle school students from Quincy Public Schools attended the FIRST Lego League Newton Qualifier Robotics Competition at Newton North High School.  In all, 31 teams from 16 cities and towns took part in the event.

This year’s challenge, Animal Allies, had three parts: a research project to identify and solve a specific problem, teamwork and core values, and a challenge to build and program a Lego robot to navigate a series of obstacles.  Students presented to adults in the three areas of judging and twelve awards were given out for areas including technical work on the robot, development and presentation of a research project, and student’s demonstration of core values.

The Quincy teams did very well at this competition and were recognized with the awards summary below.  ALL Quincy teams were acknowledged as having great enthusiasm and maturity throughout the event.

In addition to the competition, Quincy students participated in exciting opportunities at the event including hands-on robotic demonstrations, real life problem solving, and 3D printing.  The Quincy teams learned a great deal at this competition and are already making plans for their spring competition; the Quincy Public Schools Robotics Challenge which will be held at Quincy High School on Saturday May 20, 2017.

Sterling

Sterling had some challenges with their robot performance at the beginning of the day but made improvements throughout the competition and scored 30 points in their final match moving them into the top 20 overall.  The team was very pleased with their accomplishments and left with the confidence they could compete with anyone in the future.

Central

Central’s consistency showed for the robot game and judging sessions as the team won the Gracious Professionalism Award for encouraging high-quality work and respectful competitiveness.  One such act of professionalism was working with the Sterling team throughout the day, allowing them to share resources, strategies, and ideas.

Broad Meadows

The Broad Meadows team has grown from five students to twenty in just a few years and their teamwork and perseverance showed throughout the day.  They were awarded the Innovation Solution Award and judges felt their project solution on savings whales was so remarkable it could be patented.

Atlantic

Atlantic’s robotics team did very well in all aspects of the competition and was the highest ranked team from Quincy.  They were awarded with the Teamwork Award and placed 8th overall earning an invitation to the Eastern State Championship on Dec 17, 2016 at Newton North High School.  This will be the first time Atlantic has attended a state level competition.

poster-10-17In 1934, the people of Inishmaan learn that a Hollywood director is coming to a neighboring island to film a movie.  No one is more excited than Billy, a physically disabled boy, who dreams of leaving his rural life for the American Dream.  As news of his audacity ripples through the gossip-loving community, the play becomes a merciless portrayal of a world so comically cramped and mean-spirited that hopes and dreams are an affront to its order.
