Sep 10, 2018

MATTAPOISETT - Families flocked to Old Hammondtown School to meet teachers, chat with principals and learn about organizations at the school’s annual open house on Sept. 6. This year is Principal Rose Bowman’s 21st year as principal, and her 47th year in education. It’s Associate Principal Kevin Tavares’ fifth year as associate principal and 25th year as an educator. 

While there’s nothing new about the administration, there is a change at the school as teacher sixth-grade teacher Ben Squire has been newly designated as the Science Specialist to work with teachers in grades kindergarten-5. He will meet with each class once a week. He models the lesson, and then the teacher and class do the rest of the work together.
