Guidance Survey

In October, the counseling department provided students in grades 6-8 a schoolwide survey regarding Student Stress and Connectivity. The reason for us examining this type of information was based on several factors; information gathered through the MetroWest Adolescent Health Survey, student/teacher/parent reports of stress, and student attendance.

The following summary is to provide parents a broader sense of how our students in grades 6-8 reported feeling in terms of stress, connectivity to the school, and ways in which they may or may not be coping. We will re-administer this same survey in the Spring 2016 to determine whether action taken throughout the year has made an impact on our students.

Link to Summary of Results.  If you wish to see a copy of the survey and a more detailed summary of the results, there will be a binder for viewing available in the RAMS office.

Students Walking Downtown on Fridays

If you are allowing your child to walk downtown on Fridays, please remind them to be respectful of other’s property and to use caution as they walk.  We are having reports of students walking in the street, pushing each other off of the sidewalk, and climbing on private property.
