Principal's Update #08
November 19, 2023
A few words from Mr. Jackson.....
We've had quite the last two weeks at NAHS. I'm proud to be part of such a caring school community. Thank you to the community members that have reached out to support the Caisse family in their time of need.
This is the last Principal's Update prior to the Thanksgiving holiday and break. I'm thankful for the opportunity to have each of our students at NAHS. On behalf of our high school, I'd like to wish all of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We look forward to a productive final two and a half days prior to the break. Please see the remainder of the update below.
