This Week & The Week Ahead

            This week we implemented a new midterm schedule and the preliminary feedback speaking with students is that they felt that it helped them study and get the needed rest before their exams.  We have created the Midterm Exam Schedule Feedback survey for students and parents to leave their 2+2 feedback to see how we can improve next year. 
Next week we will be host our annual Anti-Bullying Intervention WeekIt is our top priority to ensure that Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School is safe for all students.  Without a safe learning environment, learning cannot take place.  Starting on Tuesday, we will start with a 28 Question survey that will be taken in first period to gauge the environment in our school.  On Wednesday, students from the DR Theatre Company will perform bullying monologues that are relevant to high school students.  After the skits, Guidance will be on stage for a panel discussion to discuss the monologues, answer student questions in the audience, and address topics from the survey on Tuesday.  On Friday, we are encouraging all staff and students to wear “Black” to “Black out Bullying” which is a national event.  Students will have the opportunity to sign the “Black out Bullying” banner in the cafeteria as their pledge to end bullying in school.  Our goal is to create a sustainable Anti-Bullying Program that is led by students and the culture is one that supports student differences and creativity, which leads to student achievement. Below are the scheduled events for next week:

Tuesday: January 27 Student Survey
During first period, students will complete a 28 question survey to give us some information on the culture in the high school.  With this data we will address student concerns during the bullying skits on Wednesday. 

Wednesday: January 28 Bullying Skits and Panel. 
9th+10th Grade Skits will be from 7:30-8:15
11th+12th Grade Skits will be from 9:00-9:45
Students from our Theatre company have been rehearsing monologues about Bullying in high schools.  The skits performed by our students are not their own personal stories, however, they are reenacting true accounts from high school students in the United States. 

Thursday: January 29 Information in the Cafe
To promote awareness and the severity of Bullying, students will have information and statistics available to them at lunch regarding bullying in schools.  

Friday: January 30 Black out Bullying
On Friday, students and staff are encouraged to wear Black to "Black Out Bullying." In addition, students will have an opportunity to sign the 2015 Black Out Bullying Banner (like the one in the Main Office Foyer).
