School Counseling Week
This past week was School Counseling Week. I wanted to take a moment to thank our school counselors for everything they do to support our students. They wear many hats each day, from counselor to therapist to confidant to cheerleader. We appreciate them!!!!
Second quarter and first semester grades are finalized. Parents and students may log into Infinite Campus to review them. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the specific teacher or your child’s school counselor.

Student Art Work
Eva Chaput’s artwork was selected to appear in the RI State House artwork exhibition highlighting exemplary art students of all grade levels in our state. The piece that was chosen was a mixed media work that included a beautiful rendering of her family vacation home with figure drawings of herself as a baby, toddler, child, and teenager. Eva and her family have been invited to a reception at the statehouse to celebrate this honor.
Chinese New Year Celebration
A few SHS students worked with students at Bryant University as part of the Bryant University Chinese New Year Celebration. Led by Kathy Qi, Norin, Madeline, Leah, Sophia, Ashley, and Emma performed a Chinese Paper Umbrella Dance. Their performance was chosen the best of the day!

Blood Drive at LaPerche Elementary
Critical Need for Blood & Platelet Donations in the United States
Due to dangerously cold temperatures in the Midwest, and cold/flu outbreaks throughout the U.S., our sister blood centers are struggling to meet blood and platelet donation collection goals for patients and hospitals. These combined factors are a perfect storm resulting in an urgent need for more donors everywhere. Rhode Island Blood Center donors are needed to help bring the blood supply up to safe levels!
The Raymond C. Laperche Elementary School blood drive is Monday, February 11th from 3pm to 7pm in the Cafeteria. Please help us get the word out to donors to make it a priority to give blood at this drive. ALL BLOOD TYPES ARE NEEDED, especially type O- and B-. Ultimately, all donations are heading to help someone else fighting for their lives! Little Rhody may be small, but we have big hearts and an amazing, giving community. Thank you!
This Week at #SHSLegacy
