Blue Hills Regional Technical School District
Dear Blue Hills Families:
Today, June 19 marks the close of the most extraordinarily school year I have ever experienced in my 28 years as an educator. I want to take a moment to thank all of you for the important roles that you played when we transformed to emergency remote learning mid-March. Change is hard, but hope and opportunity are alive and it's time to celebrate the successes we had this year.
The relationships between Blue Hills and families has flourished. We kept our children engaged in school remotely and with their classmates because of creative and innovative approaches. We had to break from some traditions to accomplish teaching, learning and commencement. We believe the connections between family and school nourish the well-being of our students and racial acceptance of all humankind has created a strong foundation for continuing the dialog of important conversations that will allow our actions to result in change for a better community. We supported our essential front line workers with donations of personal protective equipment. We also had "Team Tara" sewing masks, the Deady family donated the RV to a Stoughton firefighter and our electronics instructors made face shields. The Bowman family made homemade cards for patients. Our faculty and staff united together to make the senior events fun and more personalized under the health constraints due to COVID-19. Hopefully, our building renovation will be totally completed by the end of July!
Although we have some more challenges to overcome, we will continue to provide you regular updates about upcoming events and the planning for school in the fall. Until then, take a few moments to reflect on all that you have to be grateful for during this unprecedented period in history. Enjoy the summer with your family and friends. Stay safe, be well, spread kindness and stay connected.
“Each child is the seed of a new life-bearing inside of it the fruits of life’s possibilities. Our future - and the future of this world - is dependent on how we nurture and bear such fruits; how we teach a child to access, revel and achieve their own unique voices, inner potentials and happiness - despite life’s inevitable difficulties.”-- Cory van den Bossche
