From Academy of Biomedical Science

Students in Human Body Systems are learning about the many functions of skin. These include detecting hot/cold, pressure and pain as well as serving as a physical barrier to microbes. By building and labeling a 3-D cross section of skin, students can better visualize the anatomy behind the physiology.

Special Education Local Advisory Committee (SELAC)

Greetings, parents and caregivers, Happy spring! We would like to personally invite you to join us at our next Special Education Local Advisory Committee (SELAC). Our special education group would like to start hosting a bi-annual orientation and welcome event for all new parents entering special education in our region (Foster, Glocester, Scituate) - we want to hear about your experiences and ideas.

After listening to some parent’s experiences moving into our school district, or starting special education after early intervention (EI), we believe an event like this would be extremely beneficial. Our hope is to not only provide information about parental rights and understanding IEP’s, but to give families the opportunity to meet each other and key service providers in our district.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6:30 pm at the Northwest Special Education Office. Please join us to provide your ideas and insight into what this experience was like for you, brainstorm ideas on what information is essential to offer, and the best way to provide that information. If you are unable to attend, but still want to be involved, please reach out to us about any ideas and tips you may have at If you plan to attend, please call the Northwest Special Education Office at 401-647-4106

Thank you, Heather Kennedy and Colleen Brophy
