Three new grants have been approved by the Education Foundation for the coming school year! Fatal Vision Goggles have been purchased for use by the high school health class, to educate students on what happens to their judgement and reflexes when they drink or use drugs. Standing desks will be purchased, one for each classroom at Sea Road School, to allow students with different learning styles to stand while they work. Finally, a chapter of “Girl Talk” will be initiated at MSK and KHS. High school girls will mentor middle school girls, inspiring them and guiding them through structured meetings.
