This Week & The Week Ahead-Have a Happy Holiday Season

This week we conducted a soft drill for our ALICE safety protocols.  We did not perform any barricades during the drill.  Our goal was for our students to have self-awareness and to evaluate their surroundings.  In addition we wanted to have conversations with our students about environmental tools that could be used in the event that there was a threat in the building. The drill was a success and we are collecting feedback from students and staff for improvements. Thank you for continuing to keep our school safe.  I am sure many of  you have seen this video that has circulated social media.  The video demonstrates how it is each of our responsibility to keep each other safe.  If you see something, say something.  As we go into winter break, let’s be grateful for each other and be kind to one another.  Have a Happy and Safe Holiday break and a Happy New Year!

Senior Acceptances: Each week we will post our senior’s acceptances into prospective colleges, universities, military plans or any career pathway.  We are proud of their accomplishments.  Keep up the great work and continue to represent the “DR Difference.”

In the Classroom:
  • Applications of Calculus and Physics students worked on a "Coffee Filter" lab to measure and study the terminal velocity of a free falling object and determine its relationship between velocity and wind resistance (frictional force).
  • Culinary Arts:
  • Sculpture: ​Students were asked to create a clay shoe using slabs, and methods of attaching clay (called scoring and slipping). This was the second shoe that they have created--the first was in wire, focusing on line, the clay shoe has a focus on shape and form. Students chose a shoe to study, and recreated it using the clay methods practiced in class.

This Week's High Fives


Dean’s Desk:
  • Activities:
    • Ski Trip: Skiers and boarders are already cutting mad freshies in the pow pow at Wachusett Mountain this year. The DR Ski Club invites you on a day trip to Wachusett on Saturday, January 7th. Beginners are welcome, but seats are going fast... Pick up your permission slip in room 130 today.
  • Music Winter Concert:
  • Boys Basketball: Overall Record, SCC Record 1-1
    • The boys' basketball team defeated Fairhaven 46-34 on Tuesday night. Calvin Reddington had 15 points, Chad Mello added 11, while Alec Hart and Joel,Papp had 9 each.
    • FAIRHAVEN - Two games into the Jason Antonio era for Fairhaven's varsity basketball program, the Blue Devils are adopting a blue collar mentality.
    • "You have to play aggressive. You have to be intense. You have to be hardworking. You have to be willing to outwork the other team," Antonio said of his team's brand of basketball. "I like an uptempo brand of basketball. We don't have the height or the strength, so we have to outwork teams. If we want to win games our identity has to be that blue-collar mentality."
    • Fairhaven showed an intensity on the defensive end of the court causing 21 turnovers, but struggled offensively as they fell short against visiting Dighton-Rehoboth 46-34 on Tuesday night in a South Coast Conference matchup.
    • Lacking size and strength in the paint - no player even reaches 6-foot-2 - Antonio's group relied on hustle rather than muscle to stay close against the Falcons. D-R features two 6-foot-5 centers in Alec Hart (nine points, 11 rebounds, four blocks) and Tim Pray.
    • "We played a 1-3-1 zone because of the matchup," Antonio said. "We tried putting our guys in a position to be successful because having guys who are 6-1 or six feet against guys who are 6-5 is a tough spot."
    • Despite the difference in size, the Blue Devils hung tough against the Falcons, trailing by only six points, 22-16, at halftime. They often were unable, and at times appeared unwilling, to bring the ball in the paint against D-R, instead firing up an array of three-pointers.
    • "We want to take the open shot," Antonio said. "If it's the three-pointer, then fine. We were moving the ball around and trying to take what was available. Unfortunately we missed a lot of shots."
    • In the second half the shots began to fall. The Blue Devils erased a 7-0 run by the Falcons that lasted more than three minutes to open the third quarter by shifting to a full-court press.
    • "That was an issue for us, trying to take care of the ball against pressure. We're a young, inexperienced team that's trying to find its way. We're still learning under fire," Falcons head coach Bill Cuthbertson said.
    • As the Blue Devils applied the pressure and stretched the floor defensively, they were able to pick up the pace on offense and get a few baskets in transition. Junior guard Jarod Larocque also caught fire from beyond the arc, scoring 12 of his team-high 13 points on three-point shots. Junior guard Matthew Mitchell hit a timely three-pointer followed by a couple transition lay-ups for Andrew DeMello (six points, six rebounds) gave the Blue Devils a 7-0 run of their own, causing Cuthbertson to call timeout and regroup.
    • But D-R answered back with a sharpshooter of their own in sophomore forward Calvin Reddington, who recorded a game-high 15 points. Two of his three triples came in the second half as the Blue Devils switched to the full-court press and were unable to get back to defend in the half-court.
    • "We got a couple steals early on with the press, but they were able to figure it out down the stretch," Antonio said. "Reddington was able to knock down some threes late."
    • The Blue Devils will look to hustle their way to Antonio's first career win and the team's first win of the season when they travel to Old Rochester, where Antonio was a standout player from 1991-1995, on Friday.
    • SOUTHCOASTVARSITY.com MVP: Alec Hart, Dighton-Rehoboth - The 6-foot-5 center's presence in the paint was enough to deter the Blue Devils from driving to the hoop. He filled the stat sheet with nine points, 11 rebounds and four blocks for the Falcons (1-1, 1-0 SCC) in their first win of the year.
    • OUR TAKE: It was a slow, possession-by-possession game mostly due to the size of D-R. Cuthbertson used that to his advantage and dictated his style of play for the majority of the game. Fairhaven fought admirably on the defensive side of the ball, but just didn't have the scorers to combat the Falcons.
    • NOTES: Antonio is no stranger to the basketball court. He is Old Rochester's all-time leading scorer with 1,515 points and ranks 15th on UMass Dartmouth's all-time scoring list with 1,439 points. He also served as a coaching assisting for the Corsairs under head coach Brian Baptiste and assisted head coach Rudy Bulgar on Fairhaven's football team this season.
  • Girls Basketball: Overall Record, SCC Record 2-0
  • Ice Hockey: Overall Record 1-2
    • Dighton Rehoboth/ Seekonk hockey team faced Apponequet Thursday night and won 3-0 with Goals from Kyle Frias, Matt Mcdonald, and Ben Lunnie. Which gave Goaltender Dan Loiselle a shutout.
  • Boys Track: Overall Record, SCC Record
    • On Thursday night the DR Winter Track team faced off in a tri-meet versus Old Rochester Regional and Fairhaven. This was the toughest meet of the year for both the boys and the girls. The boys competed tooth and nail with the very athletic OR boys, but came up short (47.5-38.5). The Falcons had key contributions in almost every event, and many members of the team achieved state qualifying times. Despite the disappointing loss against OR, the boys handled Fairhaven with ease and cruised to a final of 79-7.
  • Girls Track: Overall Record, SCC Record
    • The girls team had a strong performance against OR, who have won the last nine SCC titles. The Falcons were able to steal away almost twice as many points from the defending champs than last year (55-31). The girls mirrored the dominance that the boys displayed over Fairhaven with a strong 64.5-21.5 victory. The road does not get any easier for either team as they prepare to face the recently improved Case team on January 4th, in a meet that includes Bourne and Diman.
  • Swimming: Overall Record, SCC Record
    • Girls: The Falcons' Emma Wheeler clocked a personal-best time of 2:34 in winning the 200 freestyle and also took first place in the 100 backstroke, but D-R suffered a 79-73 loss to the Vineyarders. After Wheeler and Madison Correira went 1-2 for D-R in the backstroke, the Falcons held a two-point lead.
    • However, the meet was tied at 69 points all entering the final event, the 400 freestyle relay, which the Vineyard won. Meg Alves won both the 50 (27.48) and 100 (1:04) freestyle events for D-R, while Caitlin O'Connor took second in two events. Both Falcon teams entertain Coyle-Cassidy Thursday at the East Providence Boys and Girls Club.
    • Martha's Vineyard girls 79, Dighton-Rehoboth 73: 200 Medley relay 1-DR (Emma Wheeler, Caitlin O'Connor, Madison Correira, Meg Alves), 2:12; 200 Freestyle 1-Wheeler (DR), 2-Yanci (MV), 3-Hamerland (MV), 2:34; 200 IM 1-Goodale (MV), 2-O'Connor (DR), 3-Thompson (MV), 2:28; 50 Freestyle 1-Alves (DR), 2-Rooney (MV), 3-Caroline Enos (DR), 27.48; 100 Butterfly 1-Porter (MV), 2-Correira (DR), 3-none, 1:08; 100 Freestyle 1-Alves (DR), 2-Yanci (MV), 3-Mary Iddings (DR), 1:04.3; 500 Freestyle 1-Porter (MV), 2-Enos (DR), 3-none, 6:25; 200 Freestyle relay 1-MV, 2:12; 100 Backstroke 1-Wheeler (DR), 2-Correira (DR), 3-Thompson (MV), 1:17; 100 Breaststroke 1-Goodale (MV), 2-O'Connor (DR), 3-Iddings (DR), 1:17; 400 Freestyle relay 1-MV, 4:23.
    • Boys: OAK BLUFFS - Henry Ciannavei finished first in both the 200 and 500 freestyle events, while Jeff Tran touched the wall first in both the 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly in leading the unbeaten (3-0) Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High boys' swimming team to a 105-60 victory at Martha's Vineyard Tuesday.
    • Dighton-Rehoboth boys 105, Martha's Vineyard 60: 200 Medley relay 1-DR (Jeff Tran, Owen Conti, Henry Ciannavei, Alex Iddings), 1:57; 200 Freestyle 1-Ciannavei (DR), 2-Dore (MV), 3-Iddings (DR), 2:03; 200 IM 1-Brian Abbott (DR), 2-Alex Klinkhammer (DR), 3-Chatinover (MV), 2:27; 50 Freestyle 1-Iddings (DR), 2-Pereira (MV), 3-Eric Silva (DR), 26.37; 100 Butterfly 1-Tran (DR), 2-Saunter (MV), 3-Xavier Burns (DR), 59.2; 100 Freestyle 1-Dore (MV), 2-Conti (DR), 3-Eric Silva (DR), 57.0; 500 Freestyle 1-Ciannavei (DR), 2-Saunter (MV), 3-Klinkhammer (DR), 5:29; 200 Freestyle relay 1-MV, 1:50; 100 Backstroke 1-Tran (DR), 2-Burns (DR), 3-Fisher (MV), 1:03.2; 100 Breaststroke 1-Conti (DR), 2-Abbott (DR), 3-Ben Herman (DR), 1:16; 400 Freestyle relay 1-DR (Ciannavei, Iddings, Conti, Tran), 3:56.
