FALCON NEWS 12.16.22
Dear DRRHS Community
This has been a productive week at the high school. We held our second School Council meeting on Monday, presented our MCAS data to the DRRSD School Committee on Tuesday, held our monthly faculty meeting on Wednesday, and began our Portrait of a Graduate work on Thursday. Every meeting was focused on our mission: student success. Student success is our passion, and we need to hear students, parents, and community members' voices. If you would like to participate in either the School Council or Student Handbook Committee, please complete the interest forms below.
In keeping with our focus on student success, we invite you to visit our website devoted to MCAS. It includes several tabs designed to help students and parents understand the expectations and prepare for success on the MCAS at the high school level. Please find the link below.
As always, if there's anything our team can do to improve the students' experience at DR, we want to hear from you.
Gail DeCecco, Principal
Donald Izzo, Assistant Principal for Grades 10 & 12
