Latin students visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC

Latin I, II. III Honors, and Advanced Placement students in grades 9-12 visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. The students visited the Greek and Roman galleries which includes more than seventeen thousand works ranging in date from the Neolithic period (ca. 7000–3200 B.C.) to the time of Constantine the Great (r. A.D. 305–337), the first Christian Roman emperor. Many had never visited the metropolis of New York City. Not only did the students visit the Roman and Greek galleries but they also had an opportunity to find mythological subjects in the other areas of the museum.

The students also visited the Triumphal Arch situated in Washington Square. They walked under the Triumphal Arch in Washington Square to experience the grandeur and influence of the Roman Empire on our modern culture.
The fifty students  had a sit down, family style, Italian meal and had free time in Times Square. The cost of the excursion was offset by grants from the Dighton and Rehoboth town Cultural Councils. The kids had a great time and Mrs. Loell would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Papp, Mrs. Weddel, Mr. Greenberg, and Mr. Loell who helped chaperone.

DR Baseball

The DR Varsity baseball team beat our next door neighbors and arch rivals the Seekonk Warriors 14-2 this afternoon. 
But, one of the most important things about this match up was how our team handled themselves during this game, especially in the later innings.  
The Falcons scored quickly and often, but the professionalism and sportsmanship was truly an impressive thing to witness. 
Comments could be heard from the Falcon bench such as "they'll be back" and "it's always a great game when Seekonk's in the house", or "it will different when we're at their place" 
Today's victory was much bigger than the score. 
The young men on this team just "got it" today. 
So hats off to ALL of you and Coach C for the passion 
and pure love of this game. 
You showed us why you are the Mass. State Champs today! 
Go Falcons!!
