Join Us for the Bowling for Books Event – Saturday Nov 2, 2019 from 2-5 p.m. at Academy Lanes
Join the fun and help raise funds for books for children in Haverhill Public Schools. Team Haverhill is holding Bowling for Books, which will take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at Academy Lanes 725 South Main Street in Bradford. This fun-packed event will feature bowling, refreshments, prizes, costumes, raffles and more. Bowling for Books is the kickoff event for the Read & Thrive Book Drive, which will run from November 3-December 3 and will raise money to distribute books to children in grades preschool through grade three.
To register a team for Bowling for Books, go to www.readandthrive.com. The registration fee is $50.00 per team – all funds raised go to buy books. The fee includes bowling, shoes and refreshments for the entire team! Teams should be 4-6 bowlers – the ideal size is 5 bowlers. There will be two rounds of bowling: 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Each team will bowl one game – the average score of team bowlers will be entered as the team score. Even if you cannot attend the event you can make an online donation to support the drive!
The Read & Thrive Book Drive supports the ambitious citywide literacy goals in Haverhill Promise: The Campaign for Grade Level Reading – reading proficiency for all Haverhill kids. It is being conducted in partnership with Haverhill Public Schools and the Haverhill Public Library.
School Safety Information Nights
The video above was taken at the Consentino Middle School ALICE Presentation.
The safety and security of our students is of the utmost importance. To that end, we continuously review our policies and practices to ensure that recent research and data support the policies we employ. The US Department of Education, International Association of Chiefs of Police, FEMA and the FBI all recommend having active plans that include decision making and options rather than traditional school lockdown in the unlikely event of a school intruder.
As you may know, Haverhill Public Schools has adopted ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate), a nationally recognized program. ALICE is a proactive set of responses to an active school intruder event which empowers individuals in crisis situations to be prepared to consider all options.
The school district will be providing two School Safety Information Nights that will give parents and community members an opportunity to learn about ALICE. These forums will include timelines on the implementation of educating our students prior to conducting our first student drill in November 2019.
If you have questions or would like more information, please consider joining us at one of our Informational Nights. Spanish interpreter services will be available on both Informational Nights. More information about ALICE is also available at: https://www.alicetraining.com/
