This issue of the Principal's Newsletter highlights our efforts to nurture and support students' mental health through celebration, song and fun.


Happy Holidays to all our families and Friends.

Thanks Friends!!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our school Friends who have been working extra hard this Holiday season to raise funds for the extras that make our school so special! Just In the last weeks, this group has had three successful fundraisers: the annual Thanksgiving Pie Sale, the Yankee Candle Gift Sale, and the Holiday Greens Sale.



Our school Friends also pay admission fees for most school trips off island, most recently to the ballet performance of "The Night Before Christmas" and the Providence Children's Museum for grades 1-4. In November, the Friends sponsored a school concert by Atwater- Donnelly.


As you can see this village is definitely helping to enrich our students' lives and we are appreciative of a strong parent support network. Parent involvement, whether it be for an hour, a day or longer, is helping to make a difference in our students' lives!


Also, don't forget, if you need a last minute gift, our Hurricane clothing is high quality and is sure to please during this holiday season!

School Dance!

Eileen Miller and her helpers once again organized another successful dance. The students were dressed in their finest while dancing the night away to the sounds of a DJ.

Holiday Fun!

Megan Hennessy was certainly busy this season! Her week was filled with Musical performances. We all appreciate her efforts to showcase student talent.

Student enrichment program in full swing.

A few years ago the school committee approved an enrichment program for middle and high school students who choose not to participate in sports. This year, under the direction of Shannon Morgan and Megan Hennessy, students will be able to participate in various on and off island activities on Fridays when sports teams travel. The first trip of the year is a visit to the RISD Art Museum and Ice skating in downtown Providence.
