The Weekly Update for NPHS families, Sept. 16 - 21, 2019


Last week's PTSA meeting voted to open a school store at lunch and at other popular times. The store will be located adjacent the commons, run by students, and supervised by Wendy Castillo. We also had school pictures for staff and students in the auditorium. If your student missed having their picture taken, retakes will be the week after next. At our bi-monthly staff meeting, we welcomed our new safety assistant, Charles Ashlock, our new ELL aide, Phillip Guerena, and recognized Phil Castillo for his long term work as a resource math teacher. He is being replaced by our new permanent hire for that position, Jodi Rhoades (another great addition to our staff). We also recognized our day custodian, Adam Winston, who will be honored at Tuesday's school board meeting as ESP employee of the month. We learned about how to better help our homeless children at our school. Our sports teams were in full swing last week and generated a lot of excitement. And mid-quarter grade reports were turned in Friday; please take some time to review your student's academic progress on PowerSchool.

This week is jam-packed because it's Homecoming Week! Check the daily bulletin for dress days and themes. Monday night is the National Coalition Building Institute workshop at our commons from 6 - 8 pm. You are encouraged to attend. Take a look at the schedule below to see what each day holds. Have a great week and thank you for the privilege of educating the next generation.
