Survey Works

The Rhode Island Department of Education is currently administering its yearly SurveyWorks Parent Survey, which is an opportunity for parents to provide feedback about our school and our children’s opportunities to learn.  The survey results are most useful when all parents participate, so we are writing to ask you to participate in this survey.

Your views on matters like the safety of your child at school, the way students are taught, the condition of the school, and how connected you feel to this school are important. By taking this short survey you can help our school leadership and our parent-teacher organization to make improvements to our school. Responses are anonymous and cannot be linked to any individual; no one can tie your responses back to you.

You can take the short survey online between January 14th  and March 31st.  Please check your email for the survey link and the code.

SHS Wins Grant From RI Foundation

The Rhode Island Foundation recently awarded SHS teacher’s Samantha Armstrong and Megan Hall a significant grant.  Samantha Armstrong’s physical science students and Megan Hall’s art students will participate in a cross-curricular unit that investigates the function, history and construction of sundials.  Students will begin the project separately, science students focusing on the role sundials played in understanding our heliocentric universe and art students will learn the fundamentals of working with clay.  Students will come together in multi-disciplinary teams to create their own functional clay sundials.  Congratulations!
