Good Afternoon Caregivers and Students:


We were right back into the swing of things this week!  DECA students competed in the International Competition in Atlanta over the weekend and returned to school on Thursday.  Grade 11 students took the SATs on Tuesday and attended a Career Fair on Thursday.  Staff members learned about diversity, equity and inclusion during professional development on Wednesday and we celebrated Administrative Assistant Appreciation Day. To wrap up the week, some of our SkillsUSA students competed in the state competition today at Blackstone Valley Tech! 


The EVS survey will be sent out today to all community members. This Vital Signs survey will help frame the work we will be doing over the next five years. The survey will be open for two weeks and it is essential that we receive a good response rate as well as productive feedback.


Next week will be just as busy as we begin Mental Health Awareness Month and celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. We can’t thank the PTO enough for their support in celebrating our amazing teachers!
