This Week and the Week Ahead

This week we returned back from April break and we are preparing for the home stretch.  Only fifteen days until seniors last day and just over thirty days until we are out for summer break.  178 junior and senior students, totaling 431 tests filled out their pre-Advanced Placement tests that will start on Monday.  Don’t forget today is our Annual Talent Show, which starts at 6:00 pm in the DRRHS Auditorium.  Admission is $3.00 for students and $5.00 for adults.  

Attention Class of 2017:
The School Committee approved DRRHS Graduation for Friday, June 2nd at 6:30 pm on the Robert T. Roy Football Stadium.  Please see calendar below that was approved by the School Committee on Tuesday, April 26th.

Tolerance Discussion:
On Thursday, Ms. Kathy Lopes joined DRRHS Administration on for a discussion with parents regarding tolerance, symbolism, and perception vs. reality.  This was a similar discussion that Mr. Braga used to speak with students in March.  On Friday, Ms. Lopes spoke with all students during two separate assemblies ….  
This Ted Talk by Jay Smooth, “How I learned to stop worrying and love discussion race,” makes some interesting takeaways such as the fact that we have to practice to be good, and we need to work on being good each and everyday.

All students that are participating in the AP Exams met this week and attended a Pre-administration meeting.  At this meeting they were able to receive their AP student pack and prepare their answer sheets.  The AP student pack contains information regarding how students will obtain their AP exam scores online at apscore.org.  Scores will become available in July.  AP exams begin on May 2nd and run through May 18th.  Students have been reminded to bring several No.2 pencils with them to the exams and to arrive to their exams on time.
