Thank you, DentaCare!


DentaCare is a Public Health Dental Hygiene (PHDH) program that provides in-school dental prevention to students from pre-K through grade 12. This mobile dental clinic allows students the opportunity to receive on-site oral screenings, dental sealants, fluoride varnish treatments and oral health education. This six-year-old program does not take the place of going to the dentist, but rather empowers students to take care of their oral health. Furthermore, students identified in need of more dental treatments are referred to their own dentist of record or to other local dentists to acquire a new dental home.

For the 2016-2017 school year, DentaCare provided services to 250 Hill Elementary School students. DentaCare also proudly serves over 4,000 other students in Boston area public schools and afterschool programs.



Revere Elks announce Students of the Month


Samantha Rosa

Samantha Rosa, son of Anthony and Erika Rosa, is a current senior at Revere High School. Over the course of her four years, Samantha has remained an active and engaged student both academically, and through her extracurriculars. She has maintained her position as first in the class during her four years and will be graduating as valedictorian come June.

Additionally, she has involved herself in numerous activities around the school.

During her time at Revere High School, Samantha has completed over 100 hours of community service. In the summer of her sophomore year, she traveled to Nicaragua. During her two weeks there, along with nine other students, she brought food and supplies to daycares and schools. She also had the chance to interact with the local Nicaraguan children and develop her Spanish skills. Furthermore, she has participated in various community events like the Walk for Health, the Walk for MS, Comcast Cares Day and beach cleanups.

Though academics was her top priority during high school, extracurriculars were equally as important to gain experiences away from whiteboards and textbooks. She participated in Indoor Track and Field all four years, along with outdoor track and the Girls Powderpuff team. As an avid reader and writer, she writes for the Book Club newsletter, composes articles for the student newspaper, the Patriot Gazette, edits for the RHS Literary Magazine and coordinates for the Poetry Out Loud Planning Board. She also serves as a Peer Mentor and Writing Center Tutor in an effort to both strengthen writing skills and cultivate connections. In between AP classes and activities, she has worked part-time. She worked at Toretta’s Bakery in the spring of her junior year and currently performs childcare for a local family in Revere.

In the course of her four years, she has been commended for her dedication to academia. In the spring of her sophomore year, she was the scholarship recipient for a four day leadership conference in Valley Forge where she attended lectures and learned about American history and politics. She has received an Academic Varsity letter each spring for maintaining above a 4.0 GPA, and the AP Scholar title in recognition of her passing scores on all of her Advanced Placement exams. She has acquired awards for Excellence in English and History as well as the Harvard Book Award this past spring. In December, she was the recipient of the 2016-2017 Massachusetts Association of Schools Superintendent’s Certificate of Excellence. As a result of her accomplishments, Samantha has also been inducted into the Spanish Honor Society and the National Honor Society.

In the fall, she will be attending Northeastern University as a combined English and Communications major with an International Affairs minor. She looks forward to a future career path in digital publishing and communication realms.

Vincenzo De Gregorio

Vincenzo De Gregorio has undertaken a challenging and demanding course load and achieved a strong academic record. His inclusion into the National Honor Society and the Spanish Honor Society, in addition to his record of perfect attendance, speak to his success on an advanced level.

Vincenzo is a young man with strong family values. His commitment to helping his brother, who struggles with academics because of learning disabilities, is most admirable. Vincenzo has also committed himself to involvement in his school and community. He has spent untold hours serving at a homeless shelter in Lynn, MA. He also volunteers to teach religious education to the children at his church. His commitment to a cause is shown through his actions.

Vincenzo’s natural leadership ability has been channeled into numerous school activities including; student council, school senate, manager of the school store, President and Founder of the Future Entrepreneur Club, and serving as captain of both the golf and baseball teams. Vincenzo’s ability to manage his time and develop his priorities has been validated by his outstanding resume. He has accomplished all this while also maintaining a part-time job at a local supermarket.

Vincenzo embodies the entrepreneurial spirit. He has successfully started two different small businesses while in high school. First, he started printing and selling t-shirts at his school. Second, he started a coffee business selling coffee to his classmates and their families. Now he is putting the money he is making from the coffee to a charitable fund he made himself for his cousin who has cancer. He plans to grow and explore his entrepreneurial spirit at Babson College for the next four years, majoring in entrepreneurship.

Revere resident honored as one of the “29 Who Shine”


Revere resident Aiman Masalawala was recently recognized as a member of the 2017 “29 Who Shine” class, a commencement season awards program to recognize 29 outstanding student graduates from the Commonwealth’s public higher education system. Masalawala is a 41-year-old mother who came to the country from India 10 years ago.

Her desire to obtain a college degree to become a teacher was driven by heartbreaking circumstances. For seven years, Aiman attended school daily with her special needs daughter, serving as her personal aide. When her daughter died in 2012, Aiman decided to pursue her own college education, inspired to turn personal loss into a way to help others.

She enrolled at North Shore Community College (NSCC) and maintained a 3.83 GPA while also working as a teacher’s aide with special needs children in the Revere Public Schools. She is the recipient of a Foster Furcolo Scholarship at UMass Boston, and will be beginning classes there after graduation this spring from NSCC.

Juan Jaramillo from State Senator Joe Boncore’s office and Ricky Serino from State Representative RoseLee Vincent’s office presented legislative citations to Masalawala at the State House ceremony.
