The Wolf Weekly
NRHS Principal's Newsletter
Newsletter Week of October 12, 2021
I hope you had a restful long weekend. One of the things you will see me try to model over the course of the year is work life balance. As such, over long weekends or holidays I will not be on email and will shift the times that I send out my newsletter. As adults who are pulled in so many directions, it is critical for us to take time to relax, rejuvenate and spend time with family, which is exactly what I did this weekend.
Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending the boy's varsity soccer game for senior night and in similar fashion to our girls varsity team, we had a decisive 4-0 victory. It was a great evening!
On Wednesday of last week we had our student council elections as well as a very successful clubs and activities fair in the courtyard. The positive energy from the students was amazing!
This past Friday, coach Mariani had her 200th career win at Nashoba - Congratulations!
This week is Spirit Week leading up to our Homecoming football game this Friday and Homecoming dance this Saturday.
10/12 - Career Day
10/13 - Decades Day
10/14 - Country vs. Country Club Day
10/15 - Blackout Day - wear your Nashoba Blackout T shirts
Finally, we are well over 80% vaccinated at NRHS and over 50% opt in to pooled testing. Once we get to 70% or above opt in to pooled testing, we may be able to consider removing masks indoors. Please consider filling out the opt in form for testing. Contact the school nurse for more information.
Have a wonderful week Nashoba!
