Principal's Message

Hello, Titans!

 

It was a pleasure seeing so many of you at Curriculum Night on Thursday.  The teachers were pleased to share their plans for the upcoming year and open those channels of communication between school and home.  Again, please regularly check our website (www.northviewhigh.com)) for information about upcoming events or contact information for staff and/or support organizations. 

 

On Monday, we will pay tribute to that fateful day in 2001, known to us all as 9/11.  We’ve asked your students to dress in their “Sunday best” as a gesture of respect to the almost 3,000 people who lost their lives and 6,000 others who were injured on that day.  The front of our building is decorated with white ribbons, one for each life lost; may their memory be eternal. 

 

Looking ahead, please make sure your students are in class on the following dates and times.  Please consider rescheduling dentist and doctor appointments to avoid conflict with these dates:

·         September 19-239:00-10:30am.  Students will partake in Digital Citizenship Lessons to prepare them for our 1:1 device rollout. This training is mandatory for students to receive their personal device later this year.

·         Wednesday, October 19th, all day:  PSAT Testing for all 9-11 graders.   

 

We are entering into the “meat” of the semester in all areas – arts, athletics and academics.  Our sports teams are in full swing, drama and music productions are getting great reviews and academic progress reports will be out in less than two weeks.  In other words, it’s a great time to be a Titan!
