FRCOG CPR and First Aid classes at MTRS in May

On Thursday, May 2 and Thursday, May 9, we will offer community CPR and first aid classes. If you need to re-certify your CPR credentials or bolster your confidence on how to respond in an emergency, these classes are for you! Participants will leave each class with a nationally recognized certification.

Field Trips!

Field trips are a fantastic way of continuing educational experiences beyond the classroom and we are fortunate to have so many wonderful educators willing to put in the extra time and effort to plan great trips. Recently, grade 7 and Marine Biology went to Boston Aquarium. In the next few weeks, students will be traveling all over Massachusetts!

MFA Field Trip

The Art Department announces an upcoming field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts this April. We invite all students enrolled in art department classes to join Mr. Leowolf and Ms. Silverman on this trip across the state to the MFA, home to nearly 500,000 works of art from “ancient artifacts to modern masterpieces.” Support for this program comes in part from grants from the Buckland, Charlemont-Hawley, Colrain, Heath, Plainfield, Rowe, and Shelburne Local Cultural Councils, local agencies that the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, supports. Due to the generous support of our local cultural councils and a transportation grant from the MFA this trip is being offered at no cost to students. Students will depart from MTRS at 7:30 a.m. and return around 5:00 p.m. Please reach out to Mr. Leowolf or Ms. Silverman with any questions and be on the lookout for permission slips from your art students.
