Please join the MHS Theatre Troupe for their performances of "Wild Strawberries" on March 1st and 2nd at 6:30pm! Tickets are $10 each and $8 for K-12 students. We hope to see you there! "It’s a bright morning on the di Nikoli estates and the loyal maid Truffledina just wants to eat breakfast. But her mistress, Nikolette di Nikoli, wants to disguise herself as her supposedly dead brother and go into the city to take care of his will and her inheritance. Nikolette and Truffledina head off to the city, where they meet (and confuse) many of the residents. Hilarity is guaranteed as one mistaken identity leads to another, loyalties and love are traded, and chaos ensues in the pursuit of Wild Strawberries."

Massabesic High School Students are gearing up for the SeaPerch Challenge with the invaluable support of Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Generously providing kits with materials, tools, and instruction booklets, as well as volunteer guidance, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard has empowered 24 students on 7 teams, to construct their own Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs). Scott Swett, a technical education teacher at MHS, highlighted the unique hands-on experience that challenges students to build ROVs from scratch, fostering skills like soldering, drilling, measuring, and troubleshooting. These students will soon put their creations to the test, and one outstanding team will represent Massabesic High School at the 2024 Seacoast SeaPerch Challenge on April 5 at the University of New Hampshire. The challenge includes navigating obstacle courses, executing recovery missions, and presenting technical reports; providing students with a platform to practice deep thinking and problem-solving skills. NJROTC instructor Captain Douglas Howell emphasized his role as a student guide, encouraging critical thinking and hands-on learning in an environment where there's "no illusion that the teacher knows all." RSU 57 invites all to support these aspiring engineers and innovators during the SeaPerch Challenge. Good luck, Mustangs!
