A reminder that the first quarter of the year will close on November 1st. We encourage students and their families to stay informed on Powerschool. Students should be reaching out to teachers with questions and staying after school for department nights and homework club if needed.

Professional Learning at Scituate

Thank you to our teachers, administrators, and staff, and Superintendent Blanchette for a great professional development day on Friday! Teachers throughout the district had a great day full of professorial learning and growth!

From Music

Join the Scituate High School Band and Chorus on Monday, October 14th at the Scituate Art Festival. The chorus is performing at 11am and the band is performing at 1pm.
Please support our Scituate Music Association by visiting their food booth.

From Art

The students in Mrs Rutherford's Introduction to Art Studio classes created beautiful pen and ink drawings. The students first drew their animals using the grid method (ask you student about this!!) They then used a pen and ink nib/pen to create the textures and other details on the animals. The students learned and explored various watercolor techniques before finishing their drawings with watercolor.

From Science

Students in Physical Earth Science Honors practice their newly-learned science skills to determine the density of pennies. Penny composition has changed over time and students can check how close they come to the actual densities. This lays the groundwork for more complex lab experiments later in the year.
