English Language Arts

Students in Mr. Bagley’s Science Fiction class read narratives they wrote in which they have an encounter with an alien. Joe Roy’s encounter was with a 30 ft. version of Mr. Bagley, much to Mr. Bagley’s amusement.

Biomedical Science

CTE Biomedical Pathway students enrolled in Human Body Systems wrapped up a forensic analysis using a variety of bones from an unknown individual. The purpose is to learn the bones and key anatomical features used to identify the sex, age, height and ethnic background of a missing person. The Biomedical Pathway has partnered with Detective John Grassel of the Rhode Island State Police Forensics Unit to evaluate the quality of student work on this project.

NATIONAL PORTFOLIO DAY!


All Junior and Senior SHS ART STUDENTS Are encouraged to Attend:

Two of the closest locations are:

October 20, Hartford, CT

October 21, Boston , MA


What is National Portfolio Day?


It is an event specifically for visual artists and designers. It is an opportunity for those who wish to pursue an education in the visual and related arts to meet with representatives from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Representatives will be available to review your artwork, discuss their programs and answer questions about professional careers in art. National Portfolio Days are also about the exchange of information about your work, yourself, your college plans, and your concerns. This is not an examination or competition. The college representatives are pleased to talk about their programs with you and can be most helpful when discussing your artwork. Your portfolio should include your best and most recent work, but it can also include works in progress, sketchbooks and tear sheets. You'll hear many different opinions of your work. Don't hesitate to explain how you develop your ideas and where you want to go with them. No admissions decisions or scholarship awards will be offered to you at National Portfolio Day. Some colleges represented may accept your portfolio as the visual portion of your application. Other colleges have restrictions that prohibit them from making a definite portfolio decision at the time of your review. We urge you to discuss your work with as many representatives as possible. See Ms. Feldman with questions.
