This is a free event.

Author Rachel Squires Bloom will join us to share stories and history of our own Squantum School, where she is not only a teacher, she is also assistant principal, and an alum! With firsthand knowledge of the school, Rachel set out to find and share the fascinating history of our elementary school, from the first principal, who rowed a boat to and from Squantum, to its most recent, who opened the school’s first full computer lab. We’ll hear some of the history, as well as experiences Rachel gathered from those who learned and worked at the school.

Share your own memories and stories over refreshments following the talk.

Rachel is currently researching and writing a book on the history of Squantum and invites you to connect with her to share your own stories and leads of the people, places, and stories of our seaside peninsula.
