Seekonk High School News
May will be a very active month here at Seekonk High School. We are planning for ten subjects of Advance Placement testing, computer based MCAS math testing for all grade 10 students, and the annual Spring Concert, which will be held May 15th at 7 PM., Junior Senior Prom in Newport, Senior Class Night on May 28 and graduation on May 31st in addition to numerous fieldtrips to places including the Isabella Gardner Museum, New England Aquarium, Walden Pond in Concord, The Festival of Music, and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
Spring sports are in full swing with activity out on the track and field, baseball fields, softball fields and lacrosse fields for the newly added club team for both men’s and women’s lacrosse. The tennis team has had to schedule all home matches off site since the current conditions of the high school tennis courts have been determined to be unfit for match play.
This condition of the tennis courts will hopefully be resolved before next year. A full listing of all scheduled athletic competitions can be found on the Seekonk High School web page under the quick link to athletics. Check it out and come out to root on your favorite teams.
