Wednesday March 18th high school students had a turbo advisory day. Students were instructed to color on a piece of paper specifically to resemble a word chosen on the page. After students finished their drawings junior and seniors were sent to the gym and freshmen and sophomores were sent to the cafeteria for games and competitions.
On Wednesday, March 4th the high school had a mini advisory block. Students in every class had different topics to talk about as a group. Students solved problems together and worked out tough situations that could come in their futures. Foreign language teacher Erin Fortunato spoke to her sophomore advisory class about privacy, and dangers of social media.
After attending an assembly that displayed five challenges that were created by Rachel, a young victim of the Columbine shooting, students gathered in their advisory groups to discuss what they took away from the experience.
On Monday, September 22, Manchester-Essex Regional Middle and High Schools will participate in the Rachel’s Challenge program. This nationally-renowned organization works with elementary, middle and high schools across the country to promote their anti-bullying mission: Building a chain of kindness.
Middle School students will have an all-school assembly at 8am; High School students will have an all-school assembly at 9:30am.
In the afternoon, student leaders will work with the organization to be trained in sustaining a chain of kindness. Ultimately,
there will be a follow up H Block on Wednesday, 9/24 to continue our work in this area.
Please note: there is a parent/guardian workshop planned for Monday, 9/22 at 7:00pm in the
MERMHS Auditorium. It is free of charge and open to the public.
A huge thank you goes out to Spaulding Education Fund and our PTO, Parents of Manchester- Essex Middle School for their funding of this important program. Without their support, we would not have been able to bring this program to MERMHS
For the second time of the new year, advisory groups met throughout the school. Juniors talked about career planning. This information is targeted to juniors as they are embarking on both jobs and college planning.
