Seekonk High School News


Students in the Seekonk High Drama Club entertained large crowds during all three performances of Cinderella on March 15, 16, 17. Hopefully you were able to attend one of the shows. Director Ranee Csigay worked with the cast and crew these past months to create the wonderful experience for all involved. Seniors in the production were Lily Carlson, Katie Roslonek, Abigail Sampson, Hannah Stoepker and Monique Vaz. The Pit orchestra included students Nathan Costa, Marcus Hoskins, Deirdra Rocha and SHS music educator, John Smialek.

Spring sports are underway for the season. Seekonk will have boys and girls Lacrosse offered as a club sport for the first time this season. The Unified Sports Track and Field team has grown to over fifty student athletes and partners this year. Information on sports schedules for teams can be found on the high school webpage under the quick link tab for Athletics.

The annual SHS STEM Games competition took place after school in March. Thirty-two teams competed. For the Math competition, students had to complete math puzzles. For the Technology competition, students had to make a functioning clock with reminders online. On the Engineering day, teams had to make two airplanes: one that would travel the furthest and one that would stay in the air the longest. On the Science day, teams had to work through an “escape room” puzzle of science content to prevent a zombie apocalypse. Many thanks to the teachers that assisted in the games over the course of the week: Mrs. Horton, Mrs. Larson, Mr. Kelley, Mrs. Borden, Mr. Bonneau, Mr. Wills, Mr. Perry, Ms. Andrikopolous and Ms. Costello.

Students in Sustainable Technology have been studying wind power in class. They created model wind turbines and tested a variety of designs and variables. Teams measured the output of the turbines under the varying conditions. On the last day, teams presented their turbines and findings to each other in a poster session format. The class will visit TPI Industries in Warren, RI to look at actual wind turbine manufacturing with science teacher Mrs. Cunard and Career Specialist Mrs. Calverly.
