A Message from Bernard Moss (photographer)

Dear Students,
Please make sure the school pictures are handled to your parents.
Thank you!

Survey for all students:

Dear students,

Today, you will take a survey about Body Image. We believe that this topic is very important to discuss with all 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Please know that this survey is completely anonymous, meaning, that your name will not be recorded or used in any manner. We want you to answer the questions honestly. We will discuss this topic in further detail during next week's Assembly (which will be held in the Black Box Theater), as well as future Advisory sessions. 

The topic of Body Image can be difficult for some of us to discuss, so please know that if you have any questions or concerns, Ms. Choudhury (Health teacher), Ms. Soriano (School Psychologist) and I, Mr. Tuttle, will be available to help you.

Please go to your Inbox now and fill out the survey.

Thank you all - Mr. Tuttle
