We are now officially over the halfway mark! We have 73 days of school left until the 22-23 year comes to a close. We are inviting all families to come and meet the superintendent candidates. We will host two candidates on 2/27 and two on 2/28 from 3:00 until 4:00. The candidates will be in the cafeteria and in the media center. We hope you will stop by! You will be able to provide the school committee feedback as well!

Seal of Biliteracy
The State Seal of Biliteracy is an award provided by the State of Massachusetts that recognizes public high school graduates who attain high functional and academic levels of proficiency in English and a world language in recognition of having studied and attained proficiency in two languages by high school graduation. The vision is to help students recognize the value of their academic success and see the tangible benefits of being biliterate. The State Seal of Biliteracy takes the form of a seal that appears on the transcript or diploma of the graduating senior and is a statement of accomplishment for future employers and for college admissions.
The Massachusetts State Seal of Biliteracy acknowledges linguistic equity because all world languages are included. Proficiency of the languages is evaluated via testing that measures all modalities of communication: listening and understanding spoken language, speaking with fluency (use of vocabulary), reading and comprehending the reading, and writing to demonstrate knowledge of grammar.
