From Social Studies

Students in Current Middle East Conflicts classes engaged in workplace learning by acting as journalists while interviewing Mohammed Alawad from the West Bank as well as Or Cohen, an Israeli soldier. Students collaborated with each other as a team, creating culturally sensitive, yet thought-provoking questions to ask both guest speakers. Students later compared the vastly different responses from the two perspectives as a form of reflection, and as an opportunity to comprehend and debate with each other about both perspectives of the 11 Day Conflict that ended last week in Israel.

RIIL Teen Survey


The Rhode Island interscholastic League is endorsing a study being conducted by the University of Wisconsin Health Research Team titled The Impact of Restarting High School Sports on The Health of Adolescent Athletes.”




The objective of this study is to document the effect that participation in organized sports has on the physical activity, quality of life and mental health of adolescents during the COVID-19 pandemic. A previous study conducted by UW Health indicated that the cancelation of school sports in spring 2020 was associated with significant decreases in physical activity, quality of life and mental health (see their studies here, here and here).”

The research team is surveying athletes this year to evaluate the positive impacts of restarting sport participation. Please note that this research has been approved by the University of Wisconsin Institutional Review Board and is funded by a grant from the National Federation of State High School Associations.

High school athletes and adolescent club sport athletes aged 13-18 are asked to complete this short, anonymous online survey: https://uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a5EPmtGzgpoGokJ





Dr. Timothy McGuine and Dr. Andrew Watson have noted that once all of the data has been collected, they will produce a national summary report and share it with the state associations. If a minimum of 100 participants from Rhode Island complete the survey, they will also produce a state level summary report for us. Any questions can be directed to Dr. McGuine at: McGuine@ortho.wisc.edu

BINAX Testing Change for Athletes

In speaking with our Superintendent, Athletic Director, and Principals, we have decided on the following change.


Beginning next week (May 20th) Scituate middle and high school will no longer require BINAX weekly testing for our student athletes. This change is in alignment with the new season four guidelines from the RIIL and youth sports playbook. We will continue to hold our weekly covid testing clinic in the middle school cafeteria each Thursday however, testing will be encouraged but optional.

BINAX Consent Form

Parents only need to email this form once
