Message from Principal Cullinane
Good afternoon Nashoba students and families -
The latest newsletter information is listed below. As a reminder, yesterday we sent a communication out about our planned full return on April 26th. Students will have the choice of two learning models: a fully remote model or a fully in-person model. Please refer to our letter for further information. If you have not already completed the survey in that letter, please do so as soon as possible.
Thank you and I hope you have a great weekend.
Mourning & Reflection on the Violence Against Asian, Asian-American and Pacific Islander CommunitiesDuring the COVID-19 pandemic, our country has witnessed an alarming and deeply troubling surge of violence, hatred, and discrimination directed at Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). Sadly, we know that discrimination against Asians in America is not a recent development. Our NRSD Teaching and Learning Department shared with us this letter from Transforming Education, which includes several educator resources for addressing the recent violence against AAPI communities, and we share it with students and families here as well.
From the Guidance Department
Attention students and parents. It is hard to believe, but we have already begun planning for next year and one of the most important steps for that is to get course registrations so we can build your student schedules for the 2021-2022 school year. Right now your teachers are considering what levels and classes to recommend you take next year, and we encourage you to review the Program of Studies so that you best understand all the options available to you. We will be doing course sign-ups all together on Wednesday, March 31st, details will be forthcoming. Be on the lookout for an email that went out this morning with registration details.

Online Event for the Community
The Perkins Conroy Speakers Series presents
Cultivating Resilience During Complex Times
with Dr. Kris
Thursday, April 6 - 8 PM
a FREE online event
The global pandemic and escalating mental health crises can take their toll. Resilience is a process of positive adaptation in the face of hardship. As humans, we are wired for it – capable of navigating complexity, remaining agile, and demonstrating optimism. Modern brain science offers a host of strategies for cultivating resilience by leveraging “protective factors” –adopting and practicing mindsets, behaviors, and activities that serve as buffers and help bolster our well-being. Learn ways to engage in self-care that helps nourish and sustain us during intensive times.
We hope you'll join us for the spring installment of the Conroy Speakers Series (online), featuring internationally recognized, award-winning behavioral science professor, clinician, author, and activist, Dr. Kristen Lee!
