April 8 or 10: Mandatory Seventh Grade Student Life Online Workshop for Parents and their Students

During our April "Life Online" workshops, we will share current information and research about the potential risks of life online, and how to mitigate those risks. As an educational institution our role is to educate! Beyond sharing this information, it is ultimately a family’s decision how they choose to help their children navigate the digital world. However, the State of Massachusetts requires schools to provide this education to students and families. And by law we are required to get involved when issues are brought to our attention. We want to create a balanced approach to this education, helping shape Internet-savvy students who will have the skills to succeed now and in the future, while avoiding the common traps that lie ahead. To this end, creating an opportunity for community conversation between parents, and between parents and students, has also proven to be an invaluable resource and further everyone's understanding about the issues and individual family choices.

We ask that all parents select one of the following two nights to join us in an engaging presentation and conversation with other parents and students on either Monday, April 8 or Wednesday, April 10 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. We ask that, at least, one parent attend for each of our 7th graders.

Please click the link to fill out the form information to tell us which night you and your 7th grader will attend. Students are welcome to stay after school in a supervised study hall and will be provided with dinner at 5:30 p.m.

April 11: Parent Education: Strengths-Based Parenting

Join Jill and Chris Soucy (parents of Ella ’25), both Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches, on Thursday, April 11 at 8:30 a.m. for an introduction to strengths-based parenting research and practices to gain awareness and appreciation for your own, and your child’s, innate talents.

May 11: Save the Date for Battle of the Bands

Join us from 6:30 - 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 for an exciting evening filled with bubbling beverages, live auction bidding and bands battling—all for a good cause!
