  • Shea Students Visit RISD

    Recently Shea Art Students visited the RISD museum in Providence.

    They looked at paintings, discussed why people draw, viewed the traveling art show "Line" that is in town, saw the Japanese Budda and Egyptian Mummy and drew from nature. Fun was had by all!  Students were well received and their involvement in discussions and behavior were appreciated by museum staff!


Plimouth Plantation

  • Field Trip!
    Students from the US History classes of Mr. Hewson and Mrs. Welch attended a field trip Friday, November 17th to Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth MA. This Living Museum helped the students to understand the historical realities of the first European immigrants through actors who pretend they are from 1621 England. 

    Also, students visited the Wampanoag Village to understand more about the foods, clothes, and traditions of members of this tribe as well as the complex relationship between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims, and culture and tradition that Natives carry on today. 


Donations for the Holiday Season


    Mrs. Mendillo’s Classes are doing a food drive through the holiday season to help those less fortunate.  We are specifically looking for TUNAFISH, JELLY, and CEREAL. Please bring your unopened items to 275 if you would like to donate.  They will benefit the Trinity Food Pantry here in Pawtucket!  Thank you in advance for your kindness.

Working hard to raise money

  • Field Trip Fund Raiser

    US history classes planning to visit Plymouth Plantation on Friday, November 17, raised money through sale of empanadas and a car wash on Thursday, November 9.
    Thank you to all those who let us wash your vehicle, purchased empanadas, or donated to the cause. We raised over $300 which will help offset the high cost of two buses!

Leadership Summit

  • Senior Teamwork

    On October 2, the Shea High Leadership Summit was offered by D-Co. CEO retired Lieutenant Colonel Tom DiTomasso. He along with 3 instructors from D-Co came to share the anniversary of the "worst day of their life' with Shea High Seniors. The students already had an overview of that day, October 3, 1993. It was the battle of Mogadishu, Somalia, when a half hour mission turned into an 18 hour fight for their lives. The story is told in the movie Blackhawk Down. The leadership event was hosted by SFC Batista and Camp Fogarty. Students participated in some problem solving and communication events as well as physical challenges. Students helped fellow students to complete the challenges and they worked together in teams to overcome other obstacles. MREs were served for lunch. The day was a unique experience for Dr. Ash, the teachers, the community participants and especially for our senior class. Our Shea Seniors left their trainers with a better memory for October 3rd.

    A message from the RI Blood Center:   

    Be a Hero
    Providing blood and blood products to patients in need takes a sustained community effort between volunteer blood donors, blood drive sponsors, hospitals, and the RI Blood Center. Despite great medical advances, there is still no artificial substitute for blood. It can only come from people willing to roll up their sleeves and lend their arms to save lives. Ensuring a safe, plentiful and cost effective blood supply is our mission. You are the reason we have been able to carry it out for over 35 years (www.ribc.org).

    Please see the link below to watch a video about a local family who was helped by regular blood donors.
