Developing Leopards through examples of love, encouragement, standards, and victory.

We are Rockin' Learning!

You cannot begin to imagine some of the great learning that has been happening so far this school year! Just today, I had Seniors come by and see Mrs. Weeks and myself showing off their tie tying skills and looking us in the eyes as they shake our hands. Another coming to find other teachers and myself so excited about the 100 that she made on her math test. Junior High STEM students are building candy catapults for homecoming floats. High school STEM students are designing paper towers built to withstand the test of time and weight of a can of veggies. 8th grade US History students have become settlers in the New World constructing their colony and developing the trade system based on their geographic location. This is just a handful of learning opportunities in our classrooms. Every day is a great day to come to school to see what is going to be happening.

I am sending the newsletter out using parent/guardian email addresses that are in Ascender. If you are not receiving the newsletter and would like to be added to the list please complete by clicking the button below and completing the requested information. I am going to send New Home Secondary News once a month.

Thank you for trusting us with your student. Please feel free to reach out if you need anything.

Questions to ask your children about their school day...

  • Tell me about the best part of your day.
  • What was the hardest thing you had to do today?
  • Who did you sit with in lunch today?
  • What is the biggest difference between this year and last year?
  • Can you show me something that you learned (or did) today?

Extended Absences

If your student is going to be absent more than 3 days please follow these steps:

  • Contact the school @ 806-924-7543 to report absence and arrange time for pick-up of school work.
  • Teachers will need 24 hours to gather work
  • Teachers will provide either paper or digital work.
  • Students can email teachers or communicate through Google Classroom with questions.
  • Students are expected to complete the assignments daily, unless too sick.
  • Parents are asked to return assignments on paper after 3-4 days (if the student is out an extended time) so that the teachers can grade work in a timely manner. Assignments in Google Classroom must be submitted daily if possible.

Teachers are doing their best to keep students up to date when absent but the students must do their part as well. This includes the student working on assignments and completing readings each day if possible. Doing work during their absence is the ONLY way they are going to be able to keep up.

Cafeteria News and Forgotten Lunches

Lunches this school year will be $2.50. Free and reduced lunch prices will be adjusted accordingly on a student to student basis. You can send cash or check with your child for their lunch account or add money online. Breakfast will remain free for all students. Click here for the current menu to view our most current breakfast and lunch menu.

If your child forgets his or her lunch, there will be a cart for secondary students at the main entrance for you to drop off the lunch. Please make sure to label the bag/ lunch box with your child's name and grade level.
