Dear Families, In response to the recent advisory from the RI Department of Health and the RI Interscholastic League regarding the threat of mosquitoes carrying EEE, we have taken several steps to help protect our student-athletes. To the greatest extent possible, our teams will be off the field approximately thirty minutes before sunset. In addition, on Sunday, September 1st we are having all of our game and practice fields treated with an organic mosquito spray. Though we do not have control over the scheduling of away matches and games, coaches will be reminding players to use EPA-approved bug spray and to wear long sleeves and long pants whenever possible. Please do not hesitate to contact the athletic department if you have any questions,

February Highlights · Matches worked together on an experiment “Understanding Lactose Intolerance”, where matches tested glucose levels in water, water with 2g of glucose dissolved, milk, and lactose-free milk. Then Bigs and Littles repeated the test after adding lactase to the solutions. Matches learned about what lactose is and how most bodies are less able to digest it as we grow older unless we of western or northern European decent. · During our “Understanding Lactose Intolerance” experiment, Big Brother Jon taught everyone more about the changes that occur when lactase is introduced. We were all glued to Jon as he provided Bigs and Littles with helpful visuals. · Our most recent experiment was the “Electrolyte Challenge” that produced surprising results! Most of us would assume that sports drinks provide the greatest electrolyte replenishment after a grueling physical endeavor however after building a circuit and using a multimeter to measure electrolyte presence, it was discovered Orange Juice was the winner of the challenge! · Inspired by our understanding of salts, Bigs and Littles built on the idea and decided to test a pickle for fun!
The picture forms have come in and they are available in the office and the cafeteria to any student who would like one.
