School Bond Information Session Hope Elementary School

Monday, Oct. 23rd, 7pm

391 North Road

Scituate, RI

On October 23rd & 24th, the Scituate High School SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Club will be conducting a kick-off event for their "Start With Hello" program by having each student and faculty member from Scituate Middle and High School plant a crocus bulb.

Start With Hello is a Sandy Hook Promise program to end social isolation. In every school and in every community, there are young people who suffer silently because they feel left out, alone or invisible. Social isolation is a growing epidemic in the United States and within our schools. Furthermore, young people who are isolated can become victims of bullying, violence, and/or depression. As a result, many pull further away from society, struggle with learning and social development and/or choose to hurt themselves or others. We invite all SHS students to plant a crocus bulb and sign a banner to promise to do their part in ending social isolation in our community.

From English

Students in Mrs. Ragno's Horror Fiction class presented projects during an Edgar Allen Poe party.

From Science

Mr. Catucci's Physics students are investigating the motion of a car down an inclined plane. In this lab students use an online data collection software, Ergopedia, that is integrated with their online textbook to collect the distance, time, velocity and acceleration of the car. Students then manipulated this data using graphing tools and software apps to find the instantaneous velocities and compared this to hand calculated slopes from graphs. This is all part of a Unit on measurements and graphing position & velocity vs. time graphs.

Physical Science

Mr. Catucci's honors physical science students put their investigation & safety skills to use in their first formal lab investigation of the year. In this lab they are recording data to help answer the question, "What happens when Baking Soda is heated?" This investigation requires 2 days and students will be recording observations before, during and after in order to synthesize a conclusion with scientific support.

From Social Studies

Ms. Grundt’s AP US Goverment class visited Rhode Island College on Tuesday, October 17. They listened to a panel discussion which included former members of Congress. The topic was cyber bullying and civil discourse.

Physical Education

We hope to add more activities to the students experiences as we strive for a goal of maximizing student participation. To that end the department was trained in archery this past month.

Rock Wall

The Rhode Island National Guard brought their rock wall for the high school students. They also shared use of the fatal vision driving carts where students can experience the negative effect of intoxication on ones vision while attempting to complete a driving course.
