The Weekly Update for NPHS families, Jan 27 - Feb 1, 2020

Finishing the Week with Spirit

Hello Patriots,

It was a good 4-day week of school last week, finishing with an all-school assembly in the gym (see pictures below). Students seem more focused on their academic performance as all students' grades are being run and checked every Monday at noon as part of our 3rd quarter SSP pilot. Also:

• We're gearing up for our exciting annual musical next week! More info here.

• Please welcome our new Alaska Native Education tutor, Phil Castillo. Phil is also our XC running and track and field coach.

• Drop-off/Pick-up: Drivers may pull up to the fire lanes at the front of the school for pick-up and drop-off only (no parking). Drivers also need to provide access to the road going behind the school (don't block the entrance): this road is used by custodial and maintenance. Thank you.

• Vaping Seminar by the American Lung Association, Tues, Jan 28th, 6 pm, Hutchison High School Library (all are welcome).

• If you're a junior in high school or a parent of a junior, you may be interested in this.

• See the week's events below.

Here's wishing you a great week,

John Fink

Interim Principal
