STEAM at Scituate

A very generous supporter of STEAM in Scituate who wishes to remain anonymous has placed a challenge before us: If we can raise $25,000 this year, this donor will match that! The Robotics and Technology Student Association (TSA) have kicked off our first STEAM fundraiser this year, lasting for only 22 more days. To contribute, please visit this link and share with your social networks: https://www.snap-raise.com/fundraisers/scituate-hs-steam-2018

This week in Ms. Antonelli’s Writing classes students worked in groups to create a narrative based on a single image. Students then had the opportunity to share their stories with the class. We will continue this unit throughout the next few weeks.

This week in Ms. Antonelli’s English 10 Honors classes students are preparing for their first Socratic Seminar. We have completed several circle discussions together and now it is time for them to showcase their ability to have a dialogue about the literature we are studying.

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 Therefore, the non-discrimination policy in this year's handbook is out of date.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.
