More than 300 Mashpee Middle-High School students, grades 7 through 12, were named to the honor roll at the end of the school year’s first term.
The school celebrated student achievement this week with the traditional honor roll breakfasts, one for the middle school students, one for the high school.
“[This tradition] celebrates a work ethic and drive to achieve to become the best person you can be. It all starts here in school,” Principal Mark Balestracci said Monday morning, November 19, to the middle schoolers. “We’re really, really excited for you, and we’re really, really proud of you.”
“It’s something to feel good about,” Sam Johnson, an 8th grader, said of making honor roll, “I like being recognized for putting my time in.”
On Monday and Tuesday, students packed the cafeteria, enjoying pastries with their friends. With so many honor roll students in the high school, it took staff the entire breakfast to traverse the room handing each one a certificate.
Mashpee students are named to the honor roll at the end of each term, and term two is now well underway.
