Student Health Survey

To make sure we give the best possible services to Beverly children, we want to learn what our students know about health and how they take care of their own health. One way that we do this is through a student survey. This survey has questions about alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; violence and safety; sexual issues; mental health; exercise; food; and other general information consistent with the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) Youth Risk Behavioral Survey.

We will be administrating this survey to Beverly students in grades 6 through 12 in mid-April 2015/ The survey is private – your child will not put his or her name on the survey and they may skip any question they do not wish to answer.

The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment is a Federal Law that requires that we notify you ahead of time about the survey. This gives you the opportunity to review it, so that you can inform you child’s school if you do not wish your child to participate.

The information gained by this anonymous survey, allows the District and community providers to better meet the needs of Beverly children. The results will be compiled and posted on the school and district websites.

If you wish to see the high school survey, a copy will be available in the main office, from March 20th – April 3rd, 2015. If you DO NOT wish your child to participate in the survey, you must call Beverly High School’s main office @ (978) 921-6132 by April 9, 2015.

The Senior Baccalaureate will be held on Thursday, June 4 at 7:00, Temple BNai Abraham, 200 East Lothrop St. This is a very important part of “senior week” with a very long-standing tradition here at BHS. We strongly encourage all seniors to get involved in this celebration and participate. Individually or as a group you may sing, dance, do an instrumental performance, read a poetry or essay selection, create a video of your artwork, or anything that you feel you would like to do. We would also like for a senior to volunteer and put together a video presentation of your classs accomplishments and contributions of the last four years. We are also looking for someone to design a program. There are no practices but we do need to know ahead of time who will be participating in order to create the program. If you would like to sign up, you may notify Mrs. Borsetti,(rm 167), Mrs. Curley (rm 301) or any of your senior English teachers. I know most of you will be leaving to do your internships so please let us know as soon as possible. The Temple generously donates their space and provides light refreshments. Please join us for a night that you will long remember!
