SELF CARE TIPS FROM AN SHS STUDENT DAY ONE - Over the next couple of days, I will be giving you tips on how to improve and keep your mental health up. Today's topic is Hygiene. Hygiene plays a huge role in mental health. It is scientifically proven that teens who shower regularly have more self-confidence, their mood increases in happiness, and their work output is better. You should aim to shower at least every other day. It seems like a lot of work but if you get into the habit you will feel much better.
KUDOS Students of the Week: Josie Diego, Moss Bahner. Athletes of the Week: Raven Premont, Andrew Trottier. Staff of the Week: Barbara Strong, Anna Ryan. Congratulations one and all!
CLASS of 2024 Please accept the invitation to the Google Classroom you received last week. (Thank you to the many of you who already have!) Your class officers are working hard on activities and events for you to be a part of. Don't miss the announcements and your chance to get involved.
STRESSED? Need someone to talk to? This has been a tough year, and the School Counseling staff wants you to know you are not alone. The end of the semester can be especially hard, so we'll be hosting virtual Drop In hours for the last two weeks of January open to any student who needs support. Whether you need some help getting motivated to finish up assignments or just want to check in with someone, stop on by. Our mental health intern will be there to help navigate whatever life stuff comes up for you these next two weeks. Drop in Tuesday-Thursday 2:30-3:30 or Friday 2:30-4:30 meet.google.com/kwy-ofjc-uqa If you have questions or have issues getting into the meeting, please email email@example.com
STRUGGLING WITH CLASSES? Students, please reach out to us if you feel you are in need of academic assistance. If you feel that you are behind in your classes and can use some extra academic support please fill out this form. You will be contacted for assistance. Help is on the way! Please do not request assistance during your regular class time.
SATs FOR JUNIORS SHS is planning on offering SATs at school, with a tentative date of March 24. If you are interested in taking SATs this Spring, this could be your one opportunity to do so at Spaulding this year. Please reach out to Mr. Hoffman or Ms. Ryan by Wednesday, January 27 to register. You will not have to register through College Board, but will be billed for the cost of the exam following the assessment.
ARTISTS (and non-artists who like art anyway) Join us each week to make art together (by Google Meet). Open Studio is an after school club that meets Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 where students (and faculty guests) spend time making some art. If interested, email Mrs. Reardon or Mr. Eaton for the meeting link: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com

If you are interested in Early College and want to learn more or have questions, please reach out to Margo Austin (firstname.lastname@example.org) who can connect with you and help you decide if Early College is the right fit for you.
