Saying goodbye to an old friend and looking ahead at Harwich Elementary
It was the end of an era as the town began removing the Castle in the Clouds playground at Harwich Elementary School due to safety and accessibility concerns. Read more here. The HES teachers and staff are being very creative in planning fun, active outdoor play during this temporary phase.
MRHS completes NEASC visit
As part of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges' accreditation process, 16 educators conducted an on-site visit of Monomoy Regional High School Oct. 27-30.

Parent University: Youth vaping
At our recent Parent University on youth vaping, attendees learned about the risks of vaping, how to identify vaping, and how to help young people who are vaping. If you missed the event, our website features a video of the presentation, the presentation slides, and a PSA video created by MRHS MIAA student ambassadors.

Youth Risk Behavior Survey results
The results of our 2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey were shared with the Monomoy community earlier this month. If you did not attend the YRBS presentation, please take a moment to view the presentation slides and watch the video of the presentation and ensuing panel discussion, which are posted on our website here. We applaud the MRHS Peer Leaders for their maturity and empathy in presenting this data and for their open and honest responses during the panel discussion.
