- Technology Homeroom for grades 6-8
Dear Parents,Mrs.. VanRossum has provided the application for students interested in the technology homeroom. A student must be in the 6th, 7th or 8th grade during the 2013-2014 school year. The attached application is due on or before Friday, May 31st by 2:15 PM. It should be given directly to Mrs. VanRossum. Space is very limited and Mrs.. VanRossum will select students for the homeroom who not only have an aptitude and ability in various forms of technology but who demonstrate consistent behavior at and around school. A number of students who are chosen from the applicant pool will be interviewed.
Please note that technology homeroom students have a very important role and responsibility in the school that requires students to arrive at school early and perform tasks during and after school at various events. Students who are not academically successful in the classroom will not be chosen. Please help prepare your child that a limited number of spaces are available and he/she may not be chosen. He/she must also keep his/her grades up in every class during the school year or the child will be removed from the technology homeroom.It is very important that the child completes the application and demonstrates a serious and strong desire to contribute to this program. Students may type responses if they choose. Mrs. VanRossum will be seeking the input of all the teaching staff in reference to applicant's behavior.Students new to the school who are interested in applying are welcome to do so but are strongly encouraged to provide as much detail about themselves to help showcase their abilities and previous experience with technology.Finally, please note that the technology homeroom experience is first and foremost a working homeroom where every member performs a specific role and function that allows our school to stay technologically integrated. Students who are interested in a social group with friends are not encouraged to apply. Students will be expected to work and are subject to removal from the homeroom if they are not actively contributing to the team's success.If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. VanRossum at firstname.lastname@example.orgThank you.
- School Choice Bill
Rhode Island Catholic Schools
We are pleased and excited to announce the following:
Bill 2013H 6131, RELATING TO EDUCATION-PARENTAL CHOICE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM ACT,
was submitted by Representatives Coderre and Corvese on Thursday, May 16. When approved, this bill will assist parents in choosing the right school for their child. Expanding school choice and competition is one of the most important actions we can take to improve Rhode Island's schools. Expanded school choice may face strong opposition, however studies have exhibited that expanded choice improves student achievement, reduces segregation, promotes civic values, and facilitates other productive reforms. Parental Choice in Education can take the form of issued educational vouchers, saving accounts and corporate tax credits.
We need all parents to reach out to their legislators now to let them know you support this bill. Once a committee hearing date has been established, you will be asked to join us at the State House to rally in favor of the bill.
Many thanks to Representatives Coderre and Corvese for submitting this bill.
