The SHS Parent Council hosted a stress management workshop for parents this past week. Here is the link to the presentation in case you missed it. Thank you to Lora DiMuccio, Ashlee Barton, Peter Gibalerio, and Jennifer Donnelly-Taylor for putting this together.
You may have noticed that over the past week or so that you have received updates from the school via phone call, text message and email. We are also making automated attendance calls. We are working out the kinks with the new communication system. It is imperative that parents have current contact information in Infinite Campus. The new website is almost ready to go live. The new site will provide additional ways to stay in contact with the great things happening at SHS!

The event will be from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at CCRI’s Knight Campus in Warwick in the Bobby Hackett Auditorium. Speakers will focus on giving students and their parents a better sense of the financial aid options available at federal and state levels, the eligibility criteria for these different types of aid, and the application process. Panelists will include representatives from the Rhode Island Student Loan Authority, the College Planning Center of Rhode Island, and other financial aid and education experts.
I look forward to seeing you next Monday, November 19, at 6:00 PM!
