Message from Bob Carnaroli

Raider Nation,

As you can see from the newsletter, Raider Nation is thriving across the board. It's exciting to be part of all the excellence and witness our students perform and compete. None of this is possible without the dedication and support of our staff, students, and most of all the families. Hard work and doing the right things consistently eventually pay off for those willing to keep at it. That is and has been a NFHS "trademark". There are so many life lessons learned from being part of a team, group, and working individually at being your very best. I am so proud of my staff for guiding our wonderful students in following their passions and pursuits to their fullest potential.

My best thoughts and wishes to all our Raider Families as we head into Thanksgiving Break.
