Quarter One Honor Roll is Out!

Good Afternoon,

In the December 10th edition of the Scituate High School Weekly News, the quarter one honor roll report was included. Since then, it has come to our attention that the criteria in which this report was run and the criteria printed in our student handbook is not accurate. The quarter one honor roll has therefore been recalculated based on the current honor roll policy which is printed accurately in our 2018-2019 program of studies. Attached to this email, please view the accurate quarter one honor roll.


Scituate High school will be forming a team of teachers, students, and parents to revisit our current honor roll criteria and ultimately propose a new practice for the 19-20 school year and beyond. If you are interested in providing feedback or serving on this committee, please be on the look out for a survey after the new year!


We apologize for the miscommunication and appreciate your patience!

From Social Studies

Students presented to Nauman Malik, a recent immigrant from Pakistan, about their research of current events in Pakistan. Nauman served in the Pakistani Millitary coordinating anti-Taliban operations near the Afghan border. The students were amazed about how knowledgeable he was and the personal stories that he brought with him.

Operation Backpack

Mrs. Buonaccorsi’s History classes are collecting donations for Rhode Island foster kids. Foster kids are sometimes removed from their home without warning and they only have the clothes they are wearing. When they are moved from one foster home to another they often have to carry their few belongings in a trash bag.
We are going to be providing backpacks filled with personal necessities for these foster kids. All donations will be made through the R. I. Department of Children Youth and Families. If you would like to donate a backpack or anything from the list of items below, please drop them off in room 108 or in the high school office for Mrs. Buonaccorsi. Donations can be age and/or gender specific.

Backpacks
Toothpaste
Toothbrush
Shampoo
Hand/body lotion
Hairbrush or comb
Hair elastics
Deodorant
School Supplies: pencils, pens, highlighters, etc…
Books
Stuffed Animals
Socks
Underwear

Non-Discrimination

The Scituate School Department has released an updated non-discrimination policy. Please note that our Scituate High School 2018-2019 student and parent handbook was printed before the new statement was released. Therefore, the non-discrimination policy in this year's handbook is out of date. The current policy with updates is as follows:



The Scituate School Department does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, race, religion, national origin, color, creed, political affiliation or disability in any of its educational programs and activities, and in employment and application for employment, as required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1965, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and other federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies: Equal Employment Officer, P.O. Box 188, North Scituate, Rhode Island 02857, Telephone: (401) 647-4100; Email: EEO@ScituateSchoolsRI.net. You may also direct inquiries directly to: Office for Civil Rights (Boston Office), U.S. Department of Education, 8th Floor, 5 Post Office Square, Boston, MA 02109-3921, Telephone: (617) 289-0111; Facsimile: (617) 289-0150; Email: OCR.Boston@ed.gov. If you require an accommodation to attend a meeting or program at a school, call the Equal Employment Officer at least two business days in advance of the meeting or program.
