Congratulations to the SHS Drama Club and Mr. Pearse on an incredible presentation of METAMORPHOSES last evening. If you missed last night's show no need to worry there is another show this evening at 7PM in the auditorium.
Congratulations to our Science team for their good showing at the North Shore Science meet. They are off to a good start this year, placing among the top 10 out of 20 schools in their first meet (7th, only .5 point behind 5th and 6th place finishers who tied).
Managing Risks and Building Resilience- Parent Forum:Last Spring students in grades 6-11 participated in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey. This tool is given to middle and high school students throughout the nation to look at the trends of high risk behaviors in our youth. On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at 6 p.m., the Swampscott Schools Mental Health Task Force will be hosting a forum to discuss the outcomes of the survey given here last Spring. What are our students telling us? What can the community do together to help prevent some of these issues? This evening will be an opportunity for parents and community members to learn more about the challenges our youth are facing and how we can work together to help. Please join us at Swampscott High School on November 1 at 6 p.m. Parents of all Swampscott students are welcome. Your input can make a difference!
