Special Olympics Bocce

soma

Good Afternoon Viking Nation,

If you are interested in attending Special Olympics Bocce, January 8th at Rockland High School. This is a great opportunity for you to show yourself off during the application process for the annual Spring Conference in Hyannis. You will receive 10 points if you attend.

Winthrop High School student council will car pool down 93 South and will be departing from Winthrop  High School in the morning. We will be registered as “Fans in the Stands” and will be expected to be cheering throughout the day in the gymnasium. This bocce tournament will be holding schools from NEMASC, SEMASC, and CDMASC. This is a great opportunity to rekindle your stuco friendships from the past and meet new people.

Special Olympics Bocce is a unified sport where students with and without intellectual disabilities come together and have fun while playing a sport! On behalf of MASC, we hope to see you there!

Always

Winthrop High School, Student Council Executive Board

What are you Thankful for?

Good morning fellow bloggers,

Today in class we were asked to write about what we are thankful for considering Thanksgiving is two days away! I encourage you to reflect upon yourself and past events and also answer these questions. Here are some of my thoughts!

What are you thankful for that has happened in the past. Reflect on different aspects of your life that you feel gratitude towards.

I am thankful for being so fortunate to have the opportunity of attending the National Association of Student Councils conference in Portland Oregon. I attended this conference this past June and it was hands down the best experience I have ever had in my entire life! The people that I have met around the world made me realize all of the beauty that this world has to offer. I had the chance to meet new people, rekindle old relationships, but most importantly, reflect upon myself as who I am and what my purpose is in this world. I am so fortunate that I had the opportunity to represent Massachusetts as State Vice President and give all those a voice who may not have had the opportunity for theirs to be heard. I will forever remember this experience and from that I grew as a leader and person. I am thankful.

What are you currently thankful for and why are you thankful? What are you currently feeling gratitude towards?

I am thankful at this moment for being accepted to college and having the opportunity to follow my dreams with this wonderful privilege. I am now so fortunate to be able to further my education and make a life out of myself and also be able (in the long run) to provide for my family and myself. I feel so thankful and grateful for this because there are so many people who are not able to go to college and further their education for a numerous of  reasons. I am thankful.

What are you hopeful for in the future? What are some of the good things coming in your life, your perspective or the world?

I am hopeful to graduate college and explore my options of job opportunities offered to myself. I hope to make the best decisions for myself and everyone that is a part of my life. Like I expressed to you, I have been accepted to college directly into the program I sought for. I also hope that our world isn’t screwed with the new President-elect. I am thankful.

WHS Blood Drive

Good Morning and Happy Pajama-Day WHS!

It is great to see the high level of participation throughout the school on today’s Pajama Day. We all look like a bunch of zombies as it is, to add to that go down to the Gymnasium to donate your blood at our bi-annual American Red Cross Blood Drive! This serves at a great way to give back to the community as well as the world. If you did not have the oppurtunity to donate today we will be back  in the Winter!

WHY DONATE BLOOD?

You don’t need a special reason to give blood.
You just need your own reason.

  • Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend.
  • Some know that a family member or a friend might need blood some day.
  • Some believe it is the right thing we do.

Whatever your reason, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply.  And  you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped change a life.


You will receive a mini physical to check your:

  • Pulse
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Hemoglobin

Thank you and stop being so negative!
