Hope you are all enjoying your snow day. Being home today gives me some time to reflect on all of the great things happening at the Junior High School. 

As a whole school activity in connection with civil rights connections and activities teachers are making, we will all be going to Providence Place Mall on Friday, February 17 to see the movie Hidden Figures. The permission slip can be found at the link on this page as well as on the Junior High Webpage. There is a lot of information on the webpage including calendar updates as well as the daily announcements.

For the first time this year, Junior High School students have been involved in the AmGen Big Brothers Big Sisters partnership program. Students began working with their mentors at AmGen last year in the 6th grade and have continued to work with them this year. You may have seen the video on the Superintendent's blog of one of our students, Jillian H, participating in a press conference with Governor Raimondo and Congressman Langevin.

Ms. Winner coordinated a visit from Aimee Fontaine, the Children's and Teen Librarian from the Exeter Public Library to come visit the Junior High. She talked to our students during advisory about some great new teen books. 

On January 20, the student council hosted a game night where just about 40 students stayed after school to play board games and card games together. Everyone had a great time. 

Congratulations to all of the December Knights of the Month! 
And a big congratulations to Mrs. Borges who somehow managed to avoid having her picture taken but was recognized as our December Staff Knight of the Month!
