Happy Friday! 

It has been a busy and full week this week. It is definitely the time of year for inclement weather, so be sure you have signed up on the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association for school closing or delay announcements.

On Wednesday this week we have a fantastic "Speak Out to Reach Out" presentation. There was a panel of 4 presenters who spoke to us about the importance of being the change you want to see in yourself and being the best YOU that you can be. 

The first presenter who spoke is the founder of the Michael Walton Foundation and world class sprinter, Michael Walton.
Next we had a man who is more than just an athlete, former NBA player, author and motivational speaker Etan Thomas.
Etan did a poetry reading of the poem Haters from his book, More Than An Athlete. He signed 2 copies of his book for our library.

We also had X-Factor season 1 finalist, and Epic Recording artist, Marcus Canty. Marcus had the whole auditorium chanting with him "I know I can ... Be what I want to be ... If I work hard at it ... I'll be where I want to be."

And finally we heard from 2009 Miss Virginia and 2010 Miss American Caressa Cameron. She even brought her crown with her, explaining to us how her crown was her ticket to do some amazing things such as sing for the president and attend the super bowl. 

At the flower show during vacation week there will be a STEM Park Garden Model that our students created. If you are at the flower show be sure to check it out. Here are some pictures of the model. 

Check out these pictures and video of the battle bots the students in the robotics club created. 

Unified theater is having an art auction. Check out the incredible art work and help support our Unified Theater program.

Cailin Healy is a senior at the high school and for her senior project she will be running a drawing class for Junior High School students. Space is limited so please sign up soon.
