September 12th, 2022
We had a great first week back in school. I was able to pop into various classrooms this week and got to witness some wonderful interactions with teachers and students. We have all settled into our routine and excited to begin our journey this year together!
You may have noticed that your child has begun working on homework and studying this week. This is often a period of adjustment from the summer schedule of beach and work! Learning how to prioritize school work, and stick with it, is an important skill for your child to develop. If you have noticed that your child struggles with this self-regulation skill you can do a few of the below strategies to assist them:
- Remove all distractions- especially the cell phone
- Review with them when they get distracted how to return to the task at hand, (not as easy for teens as it is for adults!)
- Practice for a small period of time and build up stamina over a few weeks. Set a realistic goal for your child to work and plan a break. Start with a time that your child will find success at and then build from there.
Practicing self-regulation skills when doing school work and studying will lead to a higher rate of productivity for your child and more academic success. Help them establish this habit early in the school year!
GOOD MORNING RAIDERS!
We started the week with two new voices on the PA system giving our daily news during homeroom. Sophia Merlino and Krystin Moore. The morning announcements will provide information such as club meetings, celebrating successes of teams and student reminders. Be sure to remind your child to listen up during homeroom so they don't miss out!

First HOME football game
In preparation for the first home football game I met with the Football Team captains ( Joseph Rome, Michael Bruno, Joseph Scala) Cheer Captains ( Meghan Lord, Madison Chiappetta, Katelyn Duff and Taylor Malgeri), Band Drum Majors ( Grace Monetti, Alyssa Alvino) and Raider Nation( Robert Sabatino, Leonardo Bautista) leads! We talked about supporting each other in a positive way and working together to maximize the experience for all that attend the game and of course go after that Win!
Congratulations to Mr. Goodman for helping out a colleague in need! Mr. Goodman is always willing to go above and beyond for any staff or student! Great job Mr. Goodman!
Science in action!
Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Bowker introduced students to the steps of the scientific method using examples of real-world problem solving. Students utilized colored cards to place the steps into a logical order, and discussed the process of discovery, research, and drawing evidence-based conclusions.
Making connections in Spanish class!
Mrs. Rodriguez was working with students to understand the science of learning, and how our brains make connections. Students learned that practice with language skills increases the strength and permanence of neural pathways in our brains. Students modeled these connections by creating a neural net with yarn. Mrs. Rodriguez also has a wealth of enriching and stimulating learning displays in her classroom to enhance the learning environment!
