The Weekly Update for NPHS families, Nov 4 - Nov 9, 2019

Thank you NPHS Parents !

Hello Patriot Family!


Thank you, parent or guardian, for all the care you give your student. Your support at home allows them to grow, gain confidence and provides them the foundation necessary to learn here at school. Last week we celebrated our parent/guardian-partnership with parent-teacher conferences on Thursday and Friday. It was good to see the turnout. And even though it was a short week of regular instruction for students, we were able to watch students perform in the annual poetry contest, in a variety of sports, and participate in student government. To learn more about these events, click here for our FB page.


This week, new carpet will greet our students and staff as they enter through the main flag pole doors. The carpet colors– red, white & blue– were chosen from student and staff input. This week we will also give out free ice cream to those students who had a 3.0 GPA or higher for the first quarter (over 300 students!) and to those who had less than 5 absences of school (...no ice cream on the new carpet!). Next grading period it will probably be pizza...just so you know. There are a lot of sports happening this week...be sure to check out those and other upcoming events below. Have a great week!


Sincerely,

John Fink, Interim Principal NPHS
