Scituate School Committee Meeting Tuesday, Nov. 5th 7:00 PM Hope Elementary School

Boiler and Heat Update

Thank you to our students and staff for their patience as the school department worked on replacing the new boilers. Here is an update from our Facilities Director:

The boilers that we had last year were outdated and inefficient. With this in mind, new boilers were included in the last bond that was approved. The work began in late August to remove the old boilers and replace them with brand new ones. Unfortunately, the timeline went a few weeks longer than expected. We had about 3 weeks of chilly temperatures in the morning hours (dipping to low 60's in some classrooms). During these weeks, we encouraged students and staff to dress warmly and we placed space heaters throughout the building wherever we could. Last week, the contractors installed industrial heaters to be blown into three parts of the ms/hs. Finally, the boilers were turned on this last week and the building is very warm! From what I understand, the company is still working on "finishing touches" but we will have heat from now on.

Thank you again for your understanding! We are grateful for brand new boilers.

From Social Studies

Students in Current Middle East Conflicts Classes participated, with enthusiasm, in a mock UN. Students have also been brainstorming questions for their teacher to e-mail to the contacts she made while presenting at an international education conference in Istanbul this summer. Students have been posing questions to a Turkish historian as well as a Kurdish professor to gain varied perspectives regarding President Trump’s decision to pull troops from northeast Syria. Students have been interested to get feedback from different perspectives of people that are actually being affected by geopolitics in the Middle East right now.

From Science

Scituate High School science teachers, Peter McCarthy and Andrew McCarthy, attended a 2-day training session on the use of new chemistry equipment won as part of $20,000 grant. The grant was sponsored by the US Office of Naval Research and the East Bay Education Collaborative. Some 40 high schools applied for this grant, and SHS was one of 9 schools selected. The grant includes access to new chemistry curriculum and the requisite laboratory equipment. Lab Aids, the equipment supplier, instructed teachers on the equipment and experiments designed to bring chemical principles to life. SHS will be incorporating some of these units and experiments into this year's courses.
