Scituate High Awarded Champlin Grant for a Redesigned Library-Media Center!

The Champlin Foundation recently awarded Scituate High School a grant for $99,260 to improve the library media center (LMC). The proposal was prepared last spring by Mrs. Charon, library media specialist, and Ms. Donovan, STEAM Coordinator. Mrs. Greer Charon, was notified by letter from the Champlin Foundation on November 17th, and Scituate High School will receive grant funds mid-December. Project planning is in progress, and the bulk of the work will occur during the summer break. The main goal of the redesign is to improve our ability to foster 21st century collaboration with the primary focus to modify the layout of the main room of the LMC, while simultaneously repurposing three of the adjoining rooms. New furniture will be mobile, lending itself to multiple configurations for the different events hosted in the library. An additional laptop cart will be available for use in the library main room, which frees up the thin clients to be moved into what will be a self contained computer lab. The new computer lab and teacher work room will be set up with screen-casting capabilities for presentations and collaborative group work. The new conference room will also have screen-casting abilities, enabling teacher and parents to review student work and grades during meetings. Plans are in place for the new media center to begin renovation in June 2018 with a grand opening for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.

E-Cigarette and Vaporizing Devices

Since the start of school this year, Scituate High School has experienced an alarming growth in students using a vape device in school. One student using these devices is one too many. The perception among students seems to be that this is "no big deal." To the point where students have used a vaporizer in the bathroom, in the hall during passing time, or even during a class. Please see the article below for parents and begin to educate yourself on the health risks by using these devices. In addition, e-cigarettes and vaporizers are not allowed on school grounds and are covered in our student handbook under our tobacco use policy. Students will be given school consequences if a device is on their person on Scituate school grounds. Please have conversations with your students regarding the severity of this issue. As always, thank you for your partnership with us!

PLTW Academy of Biomedical Science

BioMedical Pathways: Human Body Systems - Students continue to learn about neurons and the transmission of action potentials. The students pictured are collecting data using EKG sensors and accelerometers in order to measure the rate an action potential moves after a human is exposed to an external stimulus. The purpose is to illustrate that a reflex takes less time to move a body part than a cognitive response to a stimulus like sound.
