I would like to commend the work on the part of our students.  As we navigate through this unprecedented educational journey we will all make mistakes, but ultimately grow and become a stronger community.” said Principal Magill in an email.

The NPHS teachers shared a video with the student body on Monday commending the hard work that students have completed. The video was a short message from every teacher at NPHS rooting on the students and encouraging them in this scary time. 

“I miss my cougar family and I can’t wait to see all of you back at North Providence High School very soon” said Superintendent Goho.

Just like the students, the teachers have also made a big shift in how they have to teach. Assignments like playlists and slideshows make up a lot of work. Teachers have also been utilizing “Zoom” and “Google Hangouts” as a means of communicating face to face or technically, screen to screen.
