Vets Helping Pets
December 3rd- December 21st
Mrs. Pinto’s Science PBL class was inspired by the Vets Helping Vets campaign here at school and wanted to continue the work of making a positive impact on our community. To do this they elected to help local animals in need and created “Vets Helping Pets.”
These “Vets Helping Pets” PBL students hosted two events during the month of December. The first event was a Warwick Veterans schoolwide collection drive for the Warwick Animal Shelter which ran from December 3-December 21. During Week One, the students collected recycled bath and hand towels. Week Two sponsored a collection of dog and cat food and/or treats. For the third and final week of the drive, students collected rolls of paper towels. Mrs. Pinto’s students prepared scripts and visited classrooms to explain the drive to students.
The second event was a districtwide Animal-Themed Dress Down Day, which took place on December 7. Students, faculty, and staff across the district wore animal-themed attire and made monetary donations to be donated to the East Greenwich Animal Protection League.
Hurricane Hope: “Peace on Earth”
December 19th, 2018
Hurricane HOPE had a “Peace on Earth” and pencils event in the cafeteria at lunches on this day. Mr. Ferro’s band played holiday music, Hurricane Hope elves passed out holiday pencils, and a few other activities took place. We continued to construct a Remembrance Garland that was started with our grief group. Students wrote the names of loved ones they wish to remember at the holidays on a mitten cut-out, then hung with yarn on the garland. These were hanging in the front foyer.

IT’S MY LIFE ASSEMBLY
October 25th, 2018: IT’S MY LIFE Assembly
IT’S MY LIFE is a three-screen school assembly. The program focuses on the desire for control; for independence; respect; and the power to choose. However, the power to choose comes when we make responsible choices. Making the responsible choice isn’t always the easy choice. Everyone likes to have fun, but too often the fun choices are in direct conflict with the responsible ones. IT’S MY LIFE is a motivational school assembly challenging students to make positive choices for themselves while demonstrating respect for those around them.
