Thursday Thoughts is a weekly communication for current families. It includes relevant and important school news, upcoming event information, community updates, and much more. Stay up-to-date on all things HRS by reading Thursday Thoughts each week.
Progress Reports will be available and posted to the Parent Portal on Friday, March 5.
NOTE: Thursday and Friday, March 11 and 12, are conference days. There will be no classes for students. Please sign-up for a virtual conference time with your student's homeroom/advisory teacher.
We are thrilled to provide in-person instruction to all grade levels at this time. Our students are most successful when a consistent routine is maintained. Shifting between in-person and virtual learning with limited notice is challenging for teachers and students. In order to promote consistency, if your family is electing to attend in-person instruction, please keep in mind virtual access is intended to be an option only when absolutely necessary for travel quarantine/health reasons. If your student is feeling unwell or is unable to attend school in-person for other reasons, please notify your teacher of this absence.
If you have questions about HRS policies, please reach out to our Wellness Monitor, Austin Hackett: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Tracy Centanni spoke about Auditory Perception, Genetics, & Plasticity in the Dyslexic Brain for our November HRS Speaker Series event (recording here).
Her current university research project has a “last call” for student participation. Interested in learning more? Visit the R.E.A.D Study website. An informational video on this page contains study details including:
- Basic eligibility components include:
- Students age 7-12 with dyslexia/without ADHD
- Parental assessment and consent form
- Self-scheduled student Zoom meetings with research staff
- Optional submission of a saliva sample collection kit which will be de-identified by researchers and used to explore genetic markers for dyslexia
Why is HRS sharing information about this study?
At Hamlin Robinson School, we connect as often as possible with people who are creating new pathways toward understanding and enhancing the learning process for students with dyslexia. By partnering in studies like this, the HRS community can play a direct role in creating better understanding and solutions for language-based learning differences. Thank you!
