Cushing Cat Connection

girls cheering

Second graders Bianca Brandolini and Addyson Holland came to Scituate High School on Friday night, March 10th to cheer on the 5th graders (and the Cushing staff members) who played in our PTO sponsored  “Anchors Up” basketball game!  It was a close game, and EVERYONE had fun!

You Are Important!    

 I would like to acknowledge, thank and recognize the entire Cushing PTO for all of their hard work in organizing the “Anchors Up” basketball game on Friday evening at Scituate High School!  I had a blast (even though I could barely walk the next morning)!  Our Cushing PTO members all worked tirelessly to get this event off the ground, and even though the fifth graders put up a very good fight, the Cushing staff managed to eke out a win by one point!  Regardless of the score (40 to 39 points), we ALL had a blast! ,

image7-4.pngScott Crowley (fifth grade student, Mr. Smalley’s class) demonstrated excellent dribbling skills and good sportsmanship! 

image3-9.pngThe fifth grade defensive strategy worked very well, keeping the teachers at a low score for the first half of the game! 

image4-9.pngRumor has it that the Cushing fourth graders were in attendance to cheer on the Cushing staff!  Either way, we had a huge turn out for the game! Thank you to all the Cushing families who attended!
