Find the tuition free education your daughter deserves, at Our Sisters’ School

There’s nothing more important than your child’s education.

Ensuring that your child is both challenged and nurtured, inspired and empowered, uplifted and energized is a challenge for any parent. It is hard to sift through all the options. District schools, charter schools, parochial schools, private schools.

In the end it comes down to one question: What’s best for my child?

If you’re the parent of a fourth-grade girl, you might find that answer at the open house for Our Sisters’ School, located right here in the heart of New Bedford. https://www.facebook.com/events/969071477180856/

What is Our Sisters’ School?

Named after the “sister sailors” of our city’s whaling era, OSS is an independent, tuition-free, non-religious middle school that opened in 2008 with the goal of educating and inspiring economically disadvantaged girls from the New Bedford area. With small class sizes — only 18 girls per grade — each time Our Sisters’ School selects a student, it makes a thoughtful, long-term investment in the future of a courageous young woman.

Read what a parent recently wrote during Teacher Appreciation Week:

“To the entire OSS teachers and staff — you are courageous and fearless. You have gone above and beyond during a very challenging academic year to teach in person all year, and accommodate each student’s needs.

We are amazed and inspired by your kindness and bravery. You put your health at risk, and choose in-person teaching while schools throughout the country choose remote teaching.

We are so grateful, and we appreciate you for everything you do each day. Our daughter and her sister sailors are very lucky to have teachers and staff like you all. Thank you! Thank you!”

Why consider OSS?

Because an OSS education is dynamic. It’s exciting. It inspires and challenges. Strong academics are coupled with positive character development as students explore Core Values of Community, Citizenship, Leadership and Excellence with a growth mindset. Their alumnae demonstrate the power of an OSS education as they thrive in their high schools, colleges and beyond.

What is it that makes OSS different?

It starts with the dedicated, skilled team of teachers who eagerly engage students each and every day, offering depth of experience, skill and commitment to foster student growth and achievement. A rigorous, extended school day goes from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., offering each student a robust learning schedule including comprehensive, literacy-rich core academic instruction, social and emotional learning, fieldwork, local partnerships, and action for social justice. The last hour of each day, called Evening Study, is dedicated to supervised homework completion and academic support.

The opportunities at OSS are boundless. From design thinking, natural sciences, and STEAM to visual and performing arts, including music, theater, dance, studio and digital arts. There’s sports, physical fitness and developmentally appropriate health and wellness education. There’s project-based learning, public speaking, and electives that foster student voice and choice.

Additional supports like tutoring, mentoring, and counseling are a part of the OSS experience. And when your time at OSS winds down, there’s preparation and support for the transition to high school. OSS graduates have earned a high school diploma 100% of the time and 92% have applied and been accepted to college.

How do I learn more?

To join Our Sisters’ School’s voyage check out the open house at 10 a.m. on June 5: facebook.com/events/969071477180856/ Prospective parents and students are welcome to attend in person. You may also email us for additional information or call the office.

Cruise Holidays At The Port Drops Anchor in New Bedford

Back in 2006, during his first visit to the Amalfi Coast off Southern Italy, Bill King stopped into an art gallery while the rest of his companions shopped. There he met a local man with a big, wide grin named Biagio Santoro. Biagio was a tour operator, and he was waiting for his tour group, who were busy browsing the local shops. They struck up a conversation and had a delightful time. Later,when Bill returned to the Gulf of Salerno, he contacted Biagio and was treated to a tour so memorable that it could only have come from a true local. He saw places you can’t read about in a guide book.

And the best part?
Bill was able to tell his clients, many of whom found themselves enjoying their own thrilling off-the-beaten-path vacation experience, the type that isn’t offered on discount travel websites. And here’s the real kicker: Bill’s clients didn’t even have to pay him for the tip. Or for booking their trips. There are no charges for his services.

Twenty-four years ago Bill King followed his passion, leaving a 17-year career in accounting to start his own travel business: Cruise Holidays of Lakeville. Ten years ago he moved to Middleboro, and this past December he relocated to New Bedford and renamed the business Cruise Holidays at the Port.

He knows your doubts. Is it safe to travel? Isn’t it cheaper to just book online? What’s really going to be different?

He also knows the answers: Yes, No and Everything. As with almost any business, the difference comes in experience and personal care. Bill has enjoyed close to 100 cruises. He has experienced first-hand what he sells. He knows the ships, the ports of call, the cabins, the itineraries, the food, the excursions. He even has a Master Cruise Counselor accreditation from the CLIA and advanced training
from several cruise lines.

“I will not sell a cruise that I am not comfortable with,” he says, “and I would never recommend a cabin that I would not stay in.”

With the connections he’s cultivated in nearly a quarter-century in the business, Bill saves his clients time and money while helping take the stress out of the decision-making process. “I truly believe I treat every client as I would like to be treated,” he says. “At the end of the day, when I put my head on the pillow, I have done all I could for my clients.” Bill is also constantly up to date on the latest travel restrictions and the safest places to visit. Every week, he helps sift through the latest news on cruises on Fall River’s WSAR during his Tuesday afternoon show, Cruisin with Bill, co-hosted by Missy Panchley.

“During post-9/11 and more recently during the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been here to help my clients sort through the vast amount of information that we were all bombarded with,” he says. “I am here, I am local and I represent you.” While many travel agencies have shut down over the past decade, Bill is still, ahem, cruising along, which is a testament to his happy, faithful clients. He intends to be booking unforgettable vacations for the foreseeable future.

“I am truly amazed and blessed with my clients,” Bill says. “Some may have cruised only once, some maybe a dozen times, but I always enjoy getting to know them, and sharing this time together. So many clients have become good friends.” Since Bill doesn’t charge his clients a dime, his ultimate satisfaction is simple.

“It is especially rewarding,” he says, “when someone returns from a trip and stops by or lets me know what a great time they had, or how years after their trip they still remember the great experiences.”

With new cruise options being added weekly, now is your chance to meet your own Biagio while on your own mesmerizing, stress-free vacation, visit Bill’s Facebook page, Cruisin with Bill or call him at 508-947-5558.You can Visit his website: https://www.cruiseholidayslkv.com/ Book a 7 to 9 night cruise and receive a $50 on board credit. Book 10 nights or longer and get a $100 on board credit, valid on new bookings only. Stop by the office and say hello, Bill would love to talk with you about your dream vacation!

CDC Approves Pfizer Vaccine for Children 12 Years and Older

For Immediate Release: May 12, 2021
Contact: Media Relations
(404) 639-3286

Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH

“Today, I adopted CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that endorsed the safety and effectiveness of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and its use in 12- through 15-year-old adolescents. CDC now recommends that this vaccine be used among this population, and providers may begin vaccinating them right away.”

Though most children with COVID-19 have mild or no symptoms, some children can get severely ill and require hospitalization. There have also been rare, tragic cases of children dying from COVID-19 and its effects, including multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C.

This official CDC recommendation follows Monday’s FDA decision to authorize emergency use of this vaccine in 12- through 15-year-old adolescentsexternal icon, and is another important step to getting out of the COVID-19 pandemic, and closer to normalcy.

For vaccination to do its job, we must do our critical part. That means vaccinating as many people as possible who are eligible. This official CDC action opens vaccination to approximately 17 million adolescents in the United States and strengthens our nation’s efforts to protect even more people from the effects of COVID-19. Getting adolescents vaccinated means their faster return to social activities and can provide parents and caregivers peace of mind knowing their family is protected.

Some parents have already made plans for their adolescents to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Understandably, some parents want more information before their children receive a vaccine. I encourage parents with questions to talk to your child’s healthcare provider or your family doctor to learn more about the vaccine. And if your adolescent is behind on routinely recommended vaccines due to the pandemic or for other reasons, now would be a good time to work with your child’s nurse or doctor to make sure they get caught up.

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is faster and more convenient than ever. About nine out of 10 Americans live within 5 miles of a COVID-19 vaccination site. In the coming weeks, two popular ride-sharing services will offer free rides to vaccination appointments until July 4. To find the site closest to you, visit vaccines.gov; text your ZIP code to 438829 (GETVAX); or call 1-800-232-0233.
