March 30 - Student and Parent Edition

A Word From the Principal

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Prom: April 18 is canceled for now. If we can reschedule before the end of the school year we will. If we do, yes we will still allow Juniors and Seniors to purchase a ticket.


Graduation Cap & Gowns: We are optimistic we will be back in the building in time for graduation. If anything changes, we will let you know. If you haven't ordered your cap and gown, you may still do so at Balfour.com. If you ordered one and they delivered it to the school, we will keep it for you until we are allowed back in the building.


Yearbooks: Can still be ordered online at Jostens.com.


ADAP and Certificates of Attendance: Unfortunately we cannot complete these until we return to the building. There is not way to notarized them electronically at this time.


Transcript Requests: If you apply for college in the state of Georgia, go through your GAFutures account and it will allow your college to get your transcript electronically. If you are going out of state, you can email our registrar and she can send it for you. Email her at amy.davis@cowetaschools.net.


Breakfast and Lunch During Closure: Any student ages 0-18 can pick up a breakfast and a lunch each Monday-Friday from 11:00-Noon at NHS. You must be present in the car or walking up to get the lunch. You do not have to qualify for free or reduced lunch and you do not have to show ID or your lunch number. NOTE: We cannot serve during spring break. However, we will continue to provide this service free of charge during our school closure.


Senior Yard Sign Orders: We will share this out with you after Spring Break.


Grades and Credits: Right now we are focused on providing learning opportunities for all students in all classes. We will give you more directions about how grades for this semester will be calculated as well as how this will play into credits earned. For now, take time to work on the work provided by your teachers, stay safe, and try not to worry about grades and credits. Just do your best and it will work itself out!

Online Resources for Learning Economics


Below are listed the resources below with recommendations for AP and Gen/Adv level economics classes, since those curriculums differ. Most of these are video lists.


  1. Quizlet--we all use basically the same vocabulary list so look up swansonNHS. Click here to go to the upcoming vocabulary for all Gen/Adv classes. It picks up where most of us left off before the closure

  2. Jacob Clifford’s YouTube channel, found here.

    1. For Gen/Adv look under Macroeconomics Videos. The most useful there are the playlists Macro Unit 2, Macro Unit 4, and Macro Unit 6

    2. For AP look under Microeconomics Videos. We have covered the material in Units 1-3. Given the abbreviated test this year, it is unclear how much of Units 4, 5, and 6 the exam will cover. My suspicion at this point is at least go through Micro Unit 4

  3. Crash Course Economics found here

    1. For Gen/Adv videos 1-6, 8-11, 15-16, and 19-20 are most relevant

    2. For AP videos 1-6, 17-18, 19-22, 24-26, 28, and 31 are most relevant

  4. Gen i Revolution found here

    1. It’s a personal finance web based game. Requires them to create an account

  5. The Fed Explained videos found here

    1. This series is best suited for Gen/adv and not AP. This list is of the video titles covering the most relevant topics

      1. The Fed Explains Monetary Policy

      2. The Fed Explains the Central Bank

      3. The Fed Explains the Unemployment Rate

      4. The Fed Explains Inflation

  6. Marginal Revolution University found here

    1. This is best suited to AP and not Gen/Adv

    2. Go to the playlist Principles of Economics: Microeconomics

    3. You can omit video numbers 28-29, 67-68, 70-71, 73-74, and 78-83
