Related Arts Recognition Breakfast


The Related Arts Recognition Breakfasts occur three times a year, once during each tri-mester.  The RA teachers; Ms. Anderson (Music), Ms. Boland, (School Counselor and 21st Century teacher), Ms. Colgan, (Art), Ms. Cutler, (Strings), Ms. DeGroff, (Health),  Ms. Fedele, (Technology), Mr. Freeman, (P.E.), Mr. Graf, (Band), Ms. Haugh, (School Counselor and 21st Century teacher), Ms. Schuck, (Librarian), and Ms. Wright, (P.E.), orchestrate the entire event. They individually choose the students they will invite, give those students invitations, make certificates, cook, set-up and decorate the tables, serve the food, break down the tables and chairs and clean-up – all before they start their school day. 9AF6413A-E55B-4E9E-B7F9-AF280984D45D

Each teacher selects  students to receive the recognition and both the student and his/her parents are invited.                                                                                                            Always successful, over eighty people attended the first Related Arts Breakfast on Thursday, December 6th.  Thank you to our dedicated related arts teachers for this wonderful Mattacheese tradition!

A Note From The Nurse

Just a friendly reminder from the Nurse’s office:
   If you child is sick with a fever, vomiting and/or diarrhea, they need to not have any symptoms for 24 hours prior to returning to school. Also, they should be free from those symptoms without medications.
  If you think your child has a contagious disease or illness, please keep them home until diagnosed completely.
Thank you for helping our school remain healthy!

More MMS Congratulations!


Congratulations to Mattacheese technology coach, Molly Fedele ,  who was one of the recipients of the 2018 Grant Awards from the Educational Foundation of Dennis and Yarmouth.

The 2018-2019 newscast program has already started.  Ms. Fedele’s goal is to elevate the level of our newscasting  program and increase the technology  skills involved in the sound editing process.  Many students at Mattacheese strive to be on the newscast or part of the process. It helps to build community throughout the school and beyond.  Students often interview one another and share successes that would otherwise go unnoticed. The students research and write stories , read them in front of the green screen, edit the footage and create slideshows  for pictures within a picture element.  The shows are broadcast on the web for the student body.  You can find  the Mattacheese Newcast page to view older newcast programs:


MMS Book Fair Time!

Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to approximately 1.8 million words per year. Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and create new cerebral pathways. Students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, Mathematics, Science, and History!

This is why Mattacheese is having a Scholastic Book Fair.  This event will allow your child to choose books they want to read which, studies show, will encourage them to read more.

Mark your calendar!
