This session will provide an overview of friendship and peer acceptance during childhood and adolescence, discuss its importance to socio-emotional adjustment and well-being, and ways that parent(s)/guardian(s) can identify and help students who may be struggling socially. The session will provide an evidence-based discussion of friendship, aspects of friendship that afford risk and resilience, how friendships differ based on sex and developmental level, and practical ideas for how to handle social challenges.

We've received a number of inquiries about supply drop-off prior to the beginning of school. We will have a supply drop-off day on Wednesday, August 25 from 8:00-3:00. Tents and tables will be set up near the front of the building for parents to put supplies. Please make sure to label classroom supplies with the teacher's name so we can make sure they go to the right place!
Where our PreK and Kindergarten friends have often not visited the school yet, the PreK and Kindergarten teachers will be available from 2:00-3:00 to "meet and greet" students near the supply drop-off. This will be a great opportunity for our youngest students to meet their teacher prior to starting school.
We appreciate the support, flexibility and patience from our families.
The Hermon School Department qualifies for annual federal funds through ESEA. As part of the process, the school assembles a team to analyze data and create goals for the upcoming school year. As part of the federal requirements, we must post the goals and allow for public comment. One way that we allow for public comment is to present the goals at a School Committee meeting, and the other way is to post them on social media. The survey (linked below) provides a list of our anticipated goals for 2021-2021, and a place for community members to provide feedback. Your feedback will be considered as we continue the annual application process. Thank you for your feedback and support!
