Sass Second-NPHS December News
It’s hard to believe we have just three weeks left of first semester! This will be a fast three weeks full of activities. Please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions.
December 6th, we have an early release day. Students will be released at 12:45.
On December 7th, we will have 53 students taking the Algebra 1 ECA, as well as, 81 students taking the English 10 ECA on December 8th. These tests are graduation requirements for all students graduating 2017 or 2018. The Class of 2019 and beyond will be required to pass the ISTEP+ test which our current sophomores will take in the spring. Please remind your student that these tests are not only a graduation requirement, but the results also impact our school grade assigned by the State of Indiana.
Our semester ends on December 20th. Our semester final schedule is as follows:
December 19th Finals Periods 2, 4, 6
December 20th Finals Periods 1, 3, 5, 7
It’s hard to believe we are in the home stretch of our first semester this year. We have been working hard to encourage and remind our students of their responsibilities of engaging in learning, doing homework and being organized. They have been to meetings and received written reminders when they were not passing a class. Also, we continue to remind them of the opportunity for extra help we have Monday through Thursday until 3:30. Our students have a lot of help to be successful in school, please encourage them to take advantage of it.
Reminder to seniors: You must be passing ALL graduation required courses on May 26, 2017 to participate in our graduation ceremony on June 4, 2017. If a senior fails a graduation required course first semester, he/she will be enrolled in the class again during 2nd semester. A huge shout out to our many seniors who are on track to graduate and do their personal best every day. We appreciate your hard work and dedication!
Finally, this month is full of sporting events, holiday concerts and more! Take time out of this crazy, busy month and come to NPHS to check out the amazing talents of our students. Check out our website calendar to see what’s happening!
Have a blessed holiday season and stay warm!
