Students Speak Out

A panel of Thompson and Rogers School students will talk about their future aspirations and the roles education and the community play in making life choices at an Alliance for Livable Newport (ALN) forum on Tuesday, May 1, from 6-7:30 p.m., at the Pell Elementary School. Hear the perspectives of Newport’s young people as they navigate technology, social media, classroom traditions, extracurricular activities, family pressures and a rapid change in the labor market. The Newport City Council and the School Committee, and the Newport Public Schools’ Strategic Plan have spoken. Now, the most important educational constituents will speak out. Questions may be submitted to info@newportalliance.org before the forum or in writing the night of the event.
