PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE


Hello New Tech Families,


We are in the final 6 weeks of this school year, and it is critical we finish strong! Please continue to visit the website and stay connected for the latest information regarding end-of-the-year details. Next week, Wednesday, April 13, 2022, is our district assessment day. Seniors will not be in attendance. Our Junior students will take the SAT test, while 9th and 10th graders will take the PSAT assessments. Buses will run, with Freshman and Sophomore students being released at 11:45 and Juniors at 12:45. Please continue to support your child as they work to bring this school year to a successful close. As always, I look forward to creating more great days for our students and staff!


In partnership,

CLASSROOM SPOTLIGHT: CRITICAL THINKING

Each year in Mr. Levy's Critical Thinking class, the students hold a mock trial on the Case of the Speluncean Explorers. Students fill the roles of judge, jurors, prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys, defendant, and witnesses. The class spends a week researching and preparing for the trial, then two days are devoted to the trial itself. The mock trial is always one of the highlights of the semester.
