On Thursday, October 24, two sheriff’s department K9 officers came to Carver Middle High School to visit with Mr. Tresca’s Junior and Senior Justice in Society class.
They discussed rights and searches under the 4th Amendment, explained how they train their dogs to be patrol and search dogs and demonstrated a few training exercises including obedience, narcotic searches and criminal apprehension. The kids had a great time learning directly from the professionals who keep us safe every day.
Thank you to Mr. Tresca and to the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department for offering this unique on learning experience.

Congrats to M.H.S. seniors Samuel Gregory, Joshua Kennedy, Hunter Leininger, Christopher Showan, and Benjamin Walker were recently selected by the History Department and Principal Holley to participate in the eleventh annual James Otis Lecture Series on Monday September 24 in Boston with History Department Chair, Brian Lamoureux.
The series is presented every September by the Massachusetts chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates to help commemorate Constitution Day, the signing of the United States Constitution on September 17, and to help honor the memory of the great people who created our government.
The event was held at historical Faneuil Hall in Boston. The students heard from distinguished guests including featured speakers Professor Thomas Healy and the Honorable Ralph D. Gants, Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. The scholars delivered remarks and answered questions from students during a program entitled “Oliver Wendell Holmes, the First Amendment and the Role of Free Speech in America.”
The students have gained key insights into the framing and interpretation of the US Constitution and are now recognized as “James Otis Scholars.”
On Saturday, September 15, 35 members (and family members) of the Environmental Club and Honor Society under the direction of Mr. Dave Wechter and Mr. Jeff Mallon participated once again in their annual CoastSweep in Plymouth Harbor. Together, they collected over 140 pounds of trash and received high praise from the community! Thanks to all for your selfless service!
